For Throwback Thursday this month, I thought I would share three of my paper quilts.
Occasionally, I like to use design skills I've learned from my quilting experiences to work with bits of paper.

This paper quilt is taken from a fabric quilt I made called "Mother's Kitchen".

Rather than make a fabric quilt to commemorate a trip, it is much more efficient to make a small paper quilt. 

I've made several paper quilts to celebrate holidays.

More of my paper quilts can be seen by clicking here.

This is very interesting. I've never heard of a paper quilt before. It's a nice way to remember a holiday or special event.

I've never thought of making a paper quilt! Thanks for linking up with Throwback Thursday @ A Quarter Inch from the Edge!

These are really neat. I was even more impressed when I looked at your other ones and saw how small they are. I'm curious: some parts look like they have leading like in stained glass. Is that part paper, too?

Very cool!

Interesting concept -- using paper to recreate a quilt or an original paper quilt. (Hum, isn't that scrapbooking without our the book?)

Very cool! There is inspiration everywhere - a paper quilt is a great idea. Thanks for linking this post to MCM!
