The technique is easy. The options? Endless! Better still, creating one of these exciting designs may be quicker than you think. That’s because Carol Nartowicz’s cut-and-fold quilting technique is inspired by a layered papercrafting technique called incire (also known as lace–pronounced lassay). Three layers of fabric give the look of complex appliqués. Essentially, the top two layers are fused together (with wrong sides facing), cut, and folded (revealing the contrasting fabric). Small areas of a third fabric show when the cuts are folded open. A practice lesson for a pillow takes you step by step through the process. With 16-page pattern insert. 6 designs: Faded Rose Sampler, Black & White Quilt, Kaleidoscope Quilt, Leaves & Flowers Quilt, Lassay Joy Sampler, and a practice lesson pillow.
