Paper Pretties: Cozy up with a Quilt

Two weeks ago Jackie R. challenged the Prettie Girls to quilt. So after a bit of head scratching and some purty visual aids from a few other Prettie Girls I decided to cut some squares of designer paper and sew them together. Ta-da! Quilting - paper crafter style! Woot! :)
