Vintage Beauty – The Quilt Effect

Jo Boland GoGo Getaway June 2018 - Vintage Beauty

Hey, Jo here with my take on a technique taught at one of our Ipswich Dayaway events; Quilt Inspired Paper Piecing. I had thought about stitching together squares of paper to give a quilted look and then I found the most perfect paper squirrelled away in my stash. The paper, called ‘Granny’s Quilt’, is from the Kitch collection by The Girl’s Paperie from way back in 2011. It already had a quilt pattern on it, which was just beautiful, hence why I hadn’t used it before! Well, I took inspiration from the idea of quilting and machine stitched along the quilted pieces already on the paper. I just love it!
