Paper quilts



At present I am following a class for paper quilts with Terri Stegmiller from Two Creative Studios. This is the first result. The fabric paper is made by gluing silk paper to a muslin background. The resulting paper can be painted and stamped and has a beautiful texture. It takes some exercise though to quilt it, the handling is quite different from fabric. What I like most is that you can incorporate other paper (or other stuff) into the process. I worked some old paper from a French dictionary into the background of this quilt.
