✂️ Paper Cuts Quilt ✂️

I love everything about my latest quilt finish!!! The pattern, the colors, the fabrics, the backing, the scrappy binding!

Quilt Info:

Pattern: Paper Cuts Quilt by Then Came June
Fabrics: Miscellaneous stash, modern and Japanese fabrics
Backing: Tovsippa duvet cover from IKEA, featuring Gingko leaves--it was on clearance!  
Size: 56" X 74"
Quilting: Asian Gingko
Batting: Quilters Dream Batting--100% Cotton, Request
Thread: Glide--Mint
Fun Fact: Ginkgo trees are very popular in Japan. The leaf resembles a fan. A fun activities for our children in Japanese kindergarten was to gather up a bouquet of yellow ginkgo leaves! The nuts are used in a delicious salty dish called Chawanmushi.

Here's a close-up of the Gingko leaf quilting:

The backing fabric that inspired the color palette:

And because this quilt is pretty much all about the fabrics, here are some close-ups:

This is a fast, fun quilt to make! And a great way to feature some of your favorite prints!!! I'll be making more of this design!

Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy

  1. This quilt is so cute! You did such a good job coordinating the fabric colors together. I like the Asian Ginko quilting with your ties to Japan. It's always fun when you can find something from IKEA for a quilt back. This one goes perfect!

  2. I love everything about your quilt too! That ginkgo leaf Quilting complements it beautifully!

  3. Pretty quilt, Nancy - I like the quilting design. You always manage to find fun fabric at IKEA. I hope to visit IKEA one of these days.

  4. Oh I love it too! your fabrics are so beautiful together!!

  5. That's a neat quilt design! Definitely perfect for showing off those pretty fabrics!

  6. Great finish Nancy. I love your quilting choice. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  7. This is so pretty! That backing fabric is gorgeous, and I love the ginkgo leaf quilting!!

  8. What a pretty quilt, Nancy! Great pattern for showing off those beautiful fabrics to perfection. And thank you for mentioning that you quilted with MINT thread. I would never have thought of Mint but it looks fantastic, very subtle. I got a cone of Glide thread in Mint in my kit from a workshop with Judi Madsen and I thought I'd never ever use that color... but now I'm reconsidering!

  9. This is a lovely finish. It is a really interesting design and I think the leaf quilting pattern you chose has worked well. It is very different but so effective.

  10. Hi Nancy, I really love your quilt. The quilting pattern and your Japanese fabrics look really great!

  11. Simple design, fun fabrics and exquisite quilting (as usual). What's not to to love?

  12. This is really lovely!! I've been tempted to make one myself.
