Washi Paper Quilting™ is a unique, fun and simple way to create beautiful three dimensional (3D) “puffy” quilt designs using Japanese Washi Paper.
Washi Paper Quilting is based on the a traditional Japanese doll making Technique called “kime-komi” and Oshie. Pieces of Japanese “kimono” fabric and cotton batting are used to create beautiful doll pictures. Individual parts of the image are formed by creating small “shaped” puffy pillows and then piece together to form the final pictures.
Washi Paper Quilting™ by Hanko Designs
Hanko Designs has adapted this Oshie technique to be used in modern card making. We have replaced the cotton batting with “thin” cut foam and “kimono” fabric with Japanese Washi Paper. The results was the creation of Washi Paper Quilting.
