Origami Quilting

Updated on April 20, 2016

Origami Quilting

Now you can create beautiful origami quilt images by learning about Origami Quilting.

Using a variety of beautiful papers and colors you can show off your Origami Quilting patterns for display. I've framed many pieces and given them away as great gifts. But you can use them as cards or ornaments too!

I Fell In Love With Origami Quilting

I have only seen Tomoko Fuse design quilting. When I met her several years ago she talked to me about the forms she was creating for this quilting. I was very excited, and was one of the first in line (in North America) to get her Origami Quilting book. Of course mine is all in Japanese, so I have to figure it out just by the pictures. But I have created some beautiful pieces that I have framed and given as gifts.

I am currently working on a larger quilt from her designs, and so far it is about 13" x 18".

This quilting is so beautiful, and using exquisite paper you can create little treasures that look beautiful for card making, or even scrapbooking. They lay nice and flat.

Crosses & Squares - by Tomoko Fuse

This set of folds I've spent most of my time working on, and are the basis for the larger quilt that I've started. Often it's hard to decide which will be the "good" side or the "bad" side, because they both look so great.

I've recently done some more with better paper, so I've updated the picture here...don't worry, more to come still.

Square Window - by Tomoko Fuse

I just started this one, but need to do a bit more work on it. The light colors seem a bit tentative, so perhaps I should go back and try it in more vibrant shades.

Four Petaled Flowers - by Tomoko Fuse

Finally took some time to sit down and do some more of this fold. The petals turn out so nice and flat, and really very simple to fold. I still think they are beautiful just on their own.

Origami Quilting - by Tomoko Fuse

This is a rare book to find. Not only does Tomoko show you the basic folds for the quilting, but she instructs you how to combine them in many different ways. She takes a break from traditional origami and shows you some models that start with a triangle, pentagon, and hexagon.

If you collect books this is a good one!

Please let me know what you think. I will try to update with some of my new folding as it gets completed.

      This is beautiful work. I've done teabag folding but have never seen this before. Thanks for the inspiration.

      Beautiful. And of course I am going to check out the quilting technique. There is a book about rings, as well by Tomoko Fuse called Origami Rings and Wreaths. Thank you for talking about paper folding. I love boxes. There is so much to explore with this art.

      I better get off the computer and get folding or I won't get to try it all.
