This video includes Part One of How to make this beautiful Winter Frost quilt.  This quilt involves use of non-traditional techniques like paint, non-wovens, and some seriously sparkly prom fabric.

    I am in Canada and I am having trouble finding Evolon AP Paper in Canada. Is there something comparable that I can look for. I found Stonehenge Warm White 250GSM paper at a local artist supply store. Would this work?

    1. Rachel says:

      Actually, that will not work. It is paper and that will tear. Try medium weight Pellon sew-in interfacing. That is more like the spun Evolon product. I do sometimes get it from the book binding company,
      Evolon AP is a high tech non-woven polyester/nylon microfiber paper that loves ink! Evolon AP is archival and acid free. It is soft, beautiful to the touch yet incredibly strong and resilient. It whisks away and equalizes moisture yet is is remarkably resistant to mold. It does not stretch or tear even under pressure. Due to its lightweight and dimensionally stable properties, Evolon AP is an unbelievable product in the book conservation and art restoration fields. It can be used in chine colle or as a backing for fragile papers.

      Sheet Size: 22″ x 30″
      All Rolls are 80″ wide: 58gsm x 20yd; 98gsm15yd; 168gsm x 10yd

      The ultra fine web of fibers will capture even the smallest size pigments of the selected medium making colors vibrant and intense. It can be primed for painting canvas or used directly since linseed oil will not harm it.
      I get the 98gsm weight.

  7. Dodie says:

    I found a 58gsm I can order from a city in Canada. Will this work?

    1. Rachel says:

      Yes, it if quite thin but I have used this and it works well.

  8. Judy says:

    Not sure where the video is???

    1. Rachel says:

      Right at the top of this page where it says, “Video #1”

    You used a sheer fabric fusing – what’s the name? Mystic? Misty? Thanks.

    1. Rachel says:
