02_23_2019: Quilting in Paper with Jane Mathews

Paper quilts are made by combining techniques of cloth quilts and collage. These instructions apply to both mediums.

Become familiar with use of color, value, shape, pattern, repetition. Simplify.  Good composition is based on design principles.  The tendency is to put in too much in your first works.  Two different pieces are better than one that tries to include too much.  Research other quilts, artwork, architecture, etc, for ideas and study how these objects work as good composition.


SUPPLIES:     Assorted papers such as:  magazines, photo copies of your camera images, maps, wrapping paper, sewing pattern paper, old books, documents, junk mail, and fabric that doesn't stretch, such as broadcloth.

Backing paper to support your work whether you sew or glue; typing paper is a good weight.  No to newspaper.

Scissors,   thread,  (sewing machine)

Adhesives such as:  Glue stick, YES paste, matte medium, wall paper paste.  I am not fond of Elmers as it stretches the paper if doing collage.  Artists tape helps hold pieces in place when sewing.
