A Small momigami quilt

Momigami is a Japanese technique using crumpled paper. In fact the literal meaning is momi to crumple and gami paper. This small quilt was completed as part of the Stitch Club through Textile.org and utilises some pieces of hand dyed/printed fabric and a variety of crumpled paper and some loose burlap. the shiny wrapping paper made excellent folds and light reflection while the recycled paper in the foreground easily tore when stitched into so had to have much more dense stitching to hold it in place. the best papers to use for this type of work is paper with long fibres. It is a method that enhances my recycle/reuse attempts within my current work.
