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.

Scherenschnitte

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.

  1. Very nice! Have you done any of these yourself, or is it something for your "to do" list?

    1. Hi John, yes definitively on my to-do list! I made a quilt more less intricate, a celtic quilt here: https://quiltingpatch.blogspot.com/2007/03/celtique-le-voici-termine-its-finished.html

  3. 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.

  6. 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!

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  18. 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.

  23. 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.

  25. Very skillful but not so much my favourite style although Deruta is pretty amazing...

  26. 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.
