Surprising Silhouettes

Original silhouette quilts the new easy way..  inspired by Notan design technique.


A brilliant new simple way to create  your own original appliqué quilt designs using silhouettes. These designs can be used in every type of quilt project.

Based on the traditional Japanese ' Notan' paper cutting technique,  the book provides a comprehensive guide to the diverse pattern possibilities of silhouettes.  The  technique of using fabric instead of paper, as in Notan is fully explained.

Silhouettes can be a simple as a Teddy bear or complex floral or geometric designs. This book considerably extends the original  Notan concept.  Silhouettes are easy to create and fast to sew. No artistic or needlework expertise is needed for success.

Any one of these 'Surprising Silhouette' quilt patterns  will have many alternative placement variations.  This really is where the 'surprise' element comes in as you will find you have created so many amazing designs your biggest problem will be deciding which you like best !
