    Chinese paper cuts or cut paper design originated in about the year 500. They are one piece so they convert to silhouettes for quilts very nicely.

    These are raw edge applique. On two of the quilts the back of the fabric was used. The orange is Ritt dye powder sprinkle on wet fabric and the nuked for two minutes to set it.

    I used both the scissors and exacto knife to cut them out

    Wow... I have real paper cuts from China and I know how intricate they are. Your conversion of these to fabric is absolutely stunning.

    I played with scherenschnitte years ago but never considered such intricate work and certainly didn't know that you could do this beautiful work for quilting. Love it.

    very cool. been meaning to try it (too many projects anyone??)
    but what is this Ritt dye sprinkling and nuking? sounds very interesting and maybe what i need to get the fabric i want for some applique backgrounds. since i cant find it.

    have you done a tute for that? or know where one is?

    Oh these are just beautiful. What patience you must have! And your fabrics are just gorgeous. I would be interested in the ritt dye sprinkling and nuking? too. Is it similar to silk painting where you wet the silk and sprinkle silk paints all over and then iron? I will be in China in July, have to try to find some of these cut outs. Thank you for sharing.

    I absolutely love these. I know nothing about the process though or how to even start to find instructions. Would it be possible for you to tell us a little about it?

    Amazing intricate cutting. I can't imagine cutting all those tiny designs out. The results of your work is stunning.
