    Hi from Australia

    Hi. My name is Michaela Laurie and I joined Quilting Board after following on Facebook. I live in the southern part of Australia about 30 minutes drive from the capital city, Canberra. I make Paper Quilts and design patterns and working templates so that others can create them as well. I have been Paper Quilting since 2004 and just seem to love everything about it more each day. I have recently started creating the designs in fabric and I'm just loving the rich colour combinations you get from working with it. Where will it end- I see myself being surrounded by my growing paper and fabric collection for ever more.

    Welcome from Ontario, Canada. I have seen some fiber art quilts in different medias and I find them intriguing. Paper...fabric...whatever as long as you're having fun creating.

    Hi Janet, I've put a few pictures up. I'm a bit slow navigating around the site - need to spend a few more hours!! Not sure if I put the pictures in the right place so I will have a check. Lovely to meet you via this forum.

    Hi and welcome from Canberra I'm sure you will enjoy quilting with fabric just as exciting and interesting as you do with the paper quilting, with the added bonus that they keep you warm during the winter LOL
    The biggest risk is the one not taken
