About the Author

Geta Grama's crafting journey started in 2000, when she discovered quilting, absolutely by chance, on the Internet. Seduced by the new world of combining fabrics, colors, and patterns, she abandoned her engineering profession and all other passions and devoted her time entirely to quilting. She lives in Romania with her husband, Mircea, who always encourages her to follow her passion. Her family members are her biggest fans. Though it is not easy to quilt in a country where the word quilt is unknown to most people, she could not imagine her life without quilting. For her free tutorials and quilting ideas, visit her website (www.RomanianQuiltStudio.com) and her blog (cadouri-din-inima.blogspot.com).

Reviews

June 12 Acheive old-world style with this innovative technique, which combines the expertise of trapunto with shadow quilting, giving you two for the price of one. For those not familiar with trapunto, it is a very old technique whereby you "stuff" areas of your work to give it greater loft or relief. There are five layers to the projects in this book as opposed to the normal three in standard quilting. The layers from top to bottom are organza, trapunto motifs made from batting, background fabric, batting and backing and the white design of the quilt top is made from the organza and trapunto motifs placed on the familiar quilt sandwich. This is a facinating read and the starter projects are small enough for anyone to give the technique a try. Try somehting new today as Jamie Oliver would say! Fabrications Mar 12 Geta Grama is a self-taught quilter who lives in Romania. Her remote loca- tion necessitates that she make do with what quilting supplies she had on hand. Out of those circumstances Geta developed her own Shadow Trapunto technique. She originally set out to use cotton batiste but could not find any so she used organza instead and a 5 layer quilt sandwich. Her designs are quite intricate and reflect her engineering background. You will find very well written and illustrated instructions that take you step-by-step through the process. Once you discover how easy this method is you will want to take on many of the 30 projects found in the book, these include: wall hangings, pillows, table runners and postcards. The patterns in the book will need to be enlarged but there is also a CD included with the book that contain all the patterns. Geta recommends you print your pattern from the CD rather then enlarge from the book as your lines will stay thinner. All patterns on the CD are in PDF format. If you are looking for a new technique to try, pick up this book and give Geta's Shadow Trapunto technique a try. Applique Society, The
