Paper Quilting Collage

I made this collage for the sewing theme on Take a Word. The background is an old sewing pattern, with a few rips in it. I added patchwork pieces from my scrap paper pile. The zigzag stitching and buttons are stamps from Unity Stamp Co. The sentiment is also a stamp by Unity.

This collage is in an altered book that I've been working on for a class by Altered Book Lover.

Thanks for looking!!


  1. Love your take on the challenge!

  2. Hi Susan,
    Just had a look back at some of your AB pages. Loving your paper collage (the stamped stitching looks real to me) your butterfly swirls is cool too and I'm with you on the favourite being the girl and the butterflies, super page. I've ground to a halt with my AB. I don't have many pages left and am loathed to do something now which will stop me doing something else later on in the course iyswim. Thanks for stopping by my blog - BJ
