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.

 I'd love to spark your creativity at one of my *Workshops: Painting and learning how to work with paper and fabric*

And you can watch the videos on how I made one of my paper and fabric quilts with the links below:

  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.

  2. so you aren't using glue or mediums? I am pretty sensitive to chemicals but am intrigued. The hand work is awesome. LeeAnna at not afraid of color

    1. Hi Leanne,
      That's right the *instant paper cloth* is made without any glue and mediums, it's a neat and quick technique.
      Thank you for your comment.

  3. Hiya! I'm new to your blog today! Oh my gosh! Love this! Is it a technique you teach?

    1. I will teach this technique soon! I do have other workshops available, you can read more about them on the right hand corner of this site. Thank you for visiting my blog :)
