Fall in Love with Sewflakes

Create beautiful sewflakes in a wide range of designs and technique styles! Just like a traditional paper snowflake, you will be folding paper and cutting out shapes, but with sewflakes you move beyond simple paper and elevate your artistry with quilted papercut appliqué blocks. Using 6 different appliqué sewing options, each sewflake features intricate designs- in medallions, blocks, or borders in a variety of snowflake shapes. Design original patterns in just a few steps: cut out a paper snowflake, turn it into a pattern or template, and then transfer to fabric. Vary the number of folds, play with symmetry, and try positive and negative images for a variety of looks - Kathy shares all the "angles"!

Accolades for Kathy

Impeccable Technique

After holding a very popular class in Sewflakes: Papercut Appliqué last year, award-winning quilter, pattern designer, and C&T author Kathy K. Wylie is coming back to visit us! We are very excited about this, mainly because she’s a terrific teacher with impeccable technique and a winning personality, but also because she’s a native girl who’s made it big in the quilting world.

Brighten Your Appliqué Day

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… If you haven’t considered their easy, infinite possibilities… this will brighten your appliqué day!

Perfect for Novices Too

The details on making individual cut paper designs was definitely my favorite part… Variations give a great idea of design changes for anyone truly novice to paper cutting!
