I started origami when I was 10 years old. We had Japanese exchange students living with us at the time, and they introduced me to the craft. I fell in love with it. Having been given a first name of Japanese origin, I felt a kinship with Japanese things. I think this was the actual beginning of my love with paper!

About 6 years ago I discovered another craft called Tea Bag Folding. This is basically origami (folded paper) arranged in various ways as to create frames, borders, and other designs which are usually attached to a sheet paper. This technique makes beautiful medallions! I started experimenting with the all sorts of medallions and realized I was often creating the same patterns that quilters use for quilt blocks. From there it just took off. I would notice a quilt square, think I can do that in paper, and then I had to try. I've continued to enjoy this avenue of quilting with a number of quilt squares framed and hanging on the wall.

Eventually I entered a couple of my paper quilts in a local fair. I have received merit awards and Reserve Champions on them.

As you can see paper quilting is greatly varied, and can be simple or intricate and just stunningly beautiful.

I have included here samples of paper quilts I have made that are not currently for sale, but are displayed for ideas for commissioned work and custom work, as well as paper quilt products that are for sale. I will do custom work if you specify what you are looking for.
