I am diving into my studio shed and kicking off 2016 with the release of the first in a series of step-by-step technique guides. In this first guide you will discover the beautiful techniques of Top Stitch, Padded Top Stitch and just Plain Padded Paper Quilting. Through detailed instructions and photos, you can learn how to transform a single piece of beautiful paper with a grid of straight stitching. Or, add padding to create a “puffy” Paper Quilt with or without a stitching grid. No die cutting or paper punching required. These simply gorgeous Paper Quilts can be used on greeting cards, pictures and scrapbook pages. These techniques can also be used in fabric quilting.
I have worked on these techniques for more years than I care to think about. The way I began creating quilts, using this idea, was just too difficult and tricky. I knew it would give you more problems than you could poke a stick at. But it’s all been sorted now – so I hope you enjoy these ideas and where you can take them yourself. I look forward to seeing how you use these techniques in your own creations.
