Watching both part one and part two of this video was a real learning adventure. I feel more confident to try trapunto, now. I loved her relax way of teaching, and would love to see more quilting videos by Patsy Thompson.

im sorry i clicked the minus button. it means nothing was a mistake. time to go sleep or sew something.

I like this video, the first time I watched it Part I and II were together. I find myself hunting for part II. Utube has a lot of other type material around the quilting videos. Smut peddlers. Patsy you rock. Thank you for the free tips.

found part ii, but you get distracted by the unrelated material. thanks.

after watching again, i realize that i am learning and really appreciate the close-ups, the clarity, and the time you took to make this. some of the others were not anywhere near as helpful as your work. thank you i am ready to try a applique medallion trapunto or not. i was confused on applique. thanks a million.

this video is awe inspiring - now I feel compelled to try trapunto - thanks for your help Patsy.

this was awsome!!!!!

this was awsome!!!!! Part 2

This was a great learning video. I'm new to all of this. You made it fun and it seems like I could possibly do this some day. Thanks.

Fabulous video. The relaxed way of teaching made me feel like this is something I can do. I have been terrified of trying this until now. Please continue to make more videos. I will certainly be looking for more by you.

Thanks! This is the first time I've seen how to do Trapunto. I would like to know how to do Shadow Trapunto too.

Very well done and easy to understand! Thanks so much.
