Wowee, Zowee: More Paper Quilts!

I might have mentioned previously that paper quilting is quite addictive. When Kelli Nina Perkins first caught the bug, she said, “I couldn’t stop making these crazy things! ” If you had the results Kelli has, why would you stop? Tulipomania, indeed! Kelli describes, among other things, how she creates monoprints for her paper quilts.

Speaking of monoprints, Cathee has a succinct tutorial on a simple monoprinting technique over at Art and Soul.

Lucie Summers is a UK artist who is making some delicious paper quilts: she utilizes her own block prints.

I simply adore, darling, the paper quilt by Jane LaFazio called Following the Sun. It is inspired by a poem by Mary Oliver, and it’s made out of old library book check out cards sewn together and painted with acrylic paint. So right there you have my favorite poet (Oliver), my favorite paints (acrylic), and I have a library degree, so the library cards are significant as well!

Making and using monoprints in paper quilts is a fun, fast, and satisfying activity.

Art entices, inspires, and delights me. Art is a vehicle for laughter, tears, wonder, enlightenment--taking me on a constant path of discovery. You can't say that about housework (except, perhaps, for the crying part).

    Thank you Carol!!!!!!
    Hey, you need to tell more about yourself in your profile and mention your blog site in your flicker profile. Where do you live? Your workshops sound VERY intriquing, but I need to know what part of the county you live in.

    Jane, I am not in your country at all. I live in Canada: Kitchener/Waterloo, Ontario to be exact. I’m afraid I do not pay a lot of attention to Flickr, except to upload pics. But thank you for the good advice: I’ll try to get up to speed!
