Spirit Paper Quilt

This one is about 5x5 and it is made from some squares of paper painted with stripes of acrylic. 
These are some stitches that I wouldn't use again but once you start---you're committed so I had to go with it. I am finding that some stitches do great on paper, other stitches get all bunched up and drills a hole in the paper. That's not fun---but I am learning as I go. The center Spirit is much more silver than in the scan so in person, it looks better although I might just cut the squares out and start again without the center Spirit. And I am trying to turn a better corner with the blanket stitch. I getting a little better.
