Quilting has been around since the beginning of time. Today we will give you a great idea to make a paper quilt design, starting from a square of wrapping paper. Fold the desired square or block several times as shown in figure 1. Straight edges are always easier to cut and sew. Color sections of the folded square with crayon to create a design, as seen in figure 2. Keep this for a guide. Then make an exact copy of your designed block. Cut it apart. Use sections as patterns from which to cut the various pieces of felt or decorative paper needed to make your quilt block. Now get a large piece of poster board and glue the decorative pieces of paper or felt to the poster board. When it is done, your decorative paper quilt will be amazing to look at.
