Creating Texture on a Paper and Fabric Quilt with Aurifil Threads

 
*Flowers for Sophia*- a newsprint infused paper and fabric quilt (32 inches by 30 inches)
 
From the picture below you can see how the quilt started. The flowers where painted over an infused newsprint fabric. It looked nice but flat, so I decided to go to my drawer where I keep my threads and..
 ..chose Aurifil 28w thread for machine stitching....
..and12w thread for hand embroidery. Then I applied some seed beads.

I love how the different thickness of threads with a combination of simple stitches made the quilt *sing* creating texture and dimension.

  1. I'm not sure what you mean by paper infused fabric, but I love the look. The texture you achieved with stitching is fabulous!

    1. Hi Norma,
      Thank you for your comment. Paper infused fabric is a technique I developed where the end result is a pliable and washable fabric/cloth easy to sew.
