Golden Threads Paper

December 5, 2008

I tried out using Golden Threads paper to transfer a quilting design to a quilt. It was easy to do and worked really well. The only drawback is the time involved in picking all the paper out after the quilting is done. Here is a little photo essay of the process.


With a pencil I traced the design on one layer of the paper. I then stacked multiple layers of the paper together with the penciled design on top and stapled through the four corners. I used my DSM-no thread, no bobbin- to sew through all the layers of the paper, following the penciled design. The needle transfers the design to all of the layers by punching holes in the paper.

I then peeled off one layer of the paper for the first block…

and pinned it in place over the block.

Then it is just a matter of sewing over the lines of the design.

It is a great way to transfer a difficult design to many blocks.
