A - Z : S = Scherenschnitte

Scherenschnitte, qui signifie "découpage" en allemand, est l'art du papier découpé.
Scherenschnitte, which means "scissor cuts" in German, is the art of paper cutting design.


Les quilts de Suzanne Marshall sont inspirés de cette technique très développée en Allemagne/Suisse, et qu'on retrouve un peu dans l'art du tifaifai et des quilts hawaïens.

Suzanne Marshall's quilts are inspired by this highly developed skill in Germany/Switzerland, and that we find a little in the art of tifaifai and Hawaiian quilts.

Very nice! Have you done any of these yourself, or is it something for your "to do" list?
Jade Li a dit…
Beautiful color combinations and designs. The dragons at the end are so neat.
I look forward to your posts with great anticipation. Each day you come up with a treat. This post reminds me of the beautiful paper cuts we got from Poland. They were simply dazzling.

Oh, the colors on the Scherenschnitte are extraordinary!
Your rayures were so entertaining to see...thank you for sharing and these quilts are amazing as well.
Tamara a dit…
Ha, "Scherenschnitt" is a word I know :-) I used to make them when I was 3 or 4 years old, I was always amazed and delighted how they turned out. Again, these quilts... so much time, skill and effort must have gone into them!

My S is for our airline that has come a long way:

Hi John, yes definitively on my to-do list! I made a quilt more less intricate, a celtic quilt here:

So neat! The Mother's Day quilt is my favorite of all. Just wonderful!
Ooh, I'd love to have the one with all the magical animals!

Echoeing Spring is my favourite.
Mother's Day is delightful, I love the nine little mother and child scenes

These quilt designs are exquisite. I like Deruta and Echoing Spring are sizzling and really eye catching.

And here, I though paper-cutting was a distinctly Asian art form!
There are artisans in both China and Vietnam who do this intricate work, some making pop-up cards for sale.

So beautiful. I am left-handed and can barely cut out a coupon so I wouldn't be able to cute my fabric like that :)
Thank you for having the linky.
Kathe W. a dit…
oh my goodness- such perfection! Amazing what some artists can do!
Cathy Keisha a dit…
So unusual and pretty!
Carrie-Anne a dit…
Those designs are lovely, and the colors are so pretty!
Arlee Bird a dit…
Beautiful colors and designs. I wish I had a few nice quilts like these, but it's doubtful that you'd find my wife or I making anything like this. My wife should probably do something like this during our lock-down. She's been getting a bit anxious of late.

Hi Arlee, you and your wife should give it a try, quilting is very relaxing and therapeutic. Great activity right now...
Ginny Hartzler a dit…

Virginia Allain a dit…
Such beautiful quilts! Thanks for the opportunity to post my A to Z link.
Liz A. a dit…
That's a very interesting look.
The Dream Girl a dit…
Paper cutting inspired looks! Wow!!

S is for Struggle
Deborah Weber a dit…
It's mind-boggling to me how intricate these are. I'm familiar with Scherenschnitte and have done some paper cutting myself. But to then have to sew the intricate bits and quilt the whole thing, I can't imagine. So lovely! And so wonderful to have you taking us through all these genres and artists - such fun.
Such detailed, beautiful quilts. I've seen elaborate paper cuttings but never seen them in quilt form before this pots. Weekends In Maine

Very skillful but not so much my favourite style although Deruta is pretty amazing...
vesseys a dit…
This form I am familiar with. I tried years ago to "build" a quilt. I designed it with this style - I never choose the easy thing first. Needless to say I'm not a quilter.
Thank you each day for the beauty you share.
And for your visit today - so grateful.
Pradeep Nair a dit…
