Hi, my name is Cherish Flieder, Designer of Now, I would like to show you how you can create a paper collage quilts. To begin, you can select any numbers of papers from scrapbooking, magazines, whatever, whatever kind of paper suit your fancy as you're out and about. And I've actually went ahead and, and printed some of my own designs to use for this example, as well as using some lokta paper. There are several examples out on the market for different types of shapes that are common inside of quilts and I'm using some of these shapes today for my paper quilts. So, as you can see, I already have cut out several of these shapes and I'm going to proceed now and put together a little bit of a paper quilts collage. I'm going to start by arranging my, my elements and clearing off the area that I'm going to design. And I just want to kind of feel it out; they, I don't really have a plan in mind, I'm going to look and see what the shapes want to do and that's, that's part of the collage is, is a, kind of responding to the shapes that you're, you're working with. I've also cut out some of these different flower, flower shapes just to make it interesting along with some classic quilt shapes. Since it's paper, we don't have to follow the rules of fabric. So, once you have your design where you like it, you would take everything off and then glue it back on piece by piece. And you would probably want to create a series of these so that way they would fit together in one larger quilt or could be several pages in the scrapbook. You could do a lot of different things with this idea. I'm Cherish, thanks for joining me today and learning how you can use paper collage to make a quilt. And I hope you'll go live life to the fullest and make it something to cherish.
