Paper Quilt - Tulipomania

The first of my paper quilt submissions for Make It U at the International Quilt Fest in Chicago. I couldn't stop making these crazy things. The paper is mixed media, involving tissue paper, book pages, maps, sheet music, sewing patterns and handmade papers attached to muslin with diluted white glue, then dyed, stamped, painted, written on and etc. These papers were then cut up and turned into a collage, which was sewn to a paper background over batting and muslin, using hand and machine quilting. I've added some paper beads for fun. O joy!
