Wadded Quilting techniques
Samples 5a to 5 f were done using the traditional wadded quilting technique. For the 1st and 3rd layer I used coton poplin and for the padding a thicker polyester wadding.
Straight and curved lines were used to stitch the 3 layers together in samples 5a to 5f, while I did free motion quilting for samples 5 g and 5h. In 5g I filled the spaces with more stitching so that the shapes would show more. Of course all kinds of shapes could be stitched this way, but to make the shapes really pop up, more stitching has to be done to flatten the fabric between them,
Sample 5 h was done with what is called the stippling technique.
In general one can say that practically any shapes could be reproduced with this method.
For all the padded samples I used white jersey cotton as, because of its stretchy quality, it lends itself very well for this method.
5w: wavy stitching with a twin needle on jersey fabric
5/c: the same method used on tulle fabric, not very convincing though as this material proved to be too stiff
