Paper and Fabric Quilt

*Frolicking*
A paper and fabric quilt.

Let me share with you why I'm doing the happy dance!
 
This quilt received two ribbons in the www.browardquiltexpo.com, held last weekend in Fort Lauderdale, Florida for Innovative Design and Judge's Choice.
 
That was a nice surprise since the methods I used are in fact an innovative way to blend paper and fabric. This is the first time I incorporated in the same quilt 4 ways of paper lamination: newsprint on thick cotton (blue background), magazine clippings (black and white appliqué), translucent paper (flowers) and colored prints and newsprint on a transparent layer.
After some machine quilting I did hand embroidery...
...added some beading
and more machine quilting.

  1. I really love this piece! I'm curious about the size and all the methods you used for transferring newsprint to fabric.

    1. Thank you Holly. The size is 24 inches by 24 inches. I'm in the process of writting a book about this methods, I can share them when it is done :)

  2. Congratulations! That piece is so bright and fun. Wish we had flowers through which to frolic; it's all snow and blowing snow here right now, so your piece really brightens my day!
