Technique # 18 Quilting with paper

Sorry about the blurry image. For some reason my camera wouldn't focus.

A rectangular sheet the size of a two-page spread is under the needle with my first triangle of folded paper

Here it is with all the shapes sewn on to the backing rectangle.

I know it is hard to see but this is the sheet gessoed and with the stitches covered with oil pastel

I missed a step in pictures. This is the spread colored with watercolors and a few acrylic painted spots.

Here is the finished spread with colored pencil marks and dots and x's in correction fluid.

This is the back.


  1. This is wonderful, Beth! Love seeing the evolution!

    1. Thanks Deborah. This is such a favorite of mine. One thing leads to another.

  2. Goodness. This is brilliant!

    1. Quite a few years ago Judith "kidnapped" two of these that were were wonderfully complex then put the ransom note on her blog. What a hoot!!
