Sewflakes is a book about papercut appliqué, a technique that I have been exploring for the past few years. Similar to making paper snowflakes, the blocks are designed by folding and cutting paper. What makes sewflakes unique is the use of a recognizable image as the foundation of the design.
Sewflakes includes both technique and patterns. Complete instructions for designing sewflakes are presented along with a variety of approaches for completing the appliqué. A selection of quilt patterns is also provided to get you started.
“The clever blocks lead to quite moving and completely original quilts of sewflakes combined with patchwork, or sewflake blocks with papercut sashings and borders. If you love papercuts, you’ll love this book. If you haven’t considered their easy, infinite possibilities… this book will brighten your appliqué day!” ~ Elly Sienkiewicz, Author, Baltimore Album expert, Proprietress of The Elly Sienkiewicz Appliqué Academy
