Fussy Cutting

Fussy-cutting is the isolating of a particular motif in a print and cutting it exactly the same several times so when the pieces are sewn together a kaleidoscopic or mirror image effect is achieved. I ususally use border prints for my fussy-cutting. This can be seen in my Kaleidoscope Art Cards, my sampler, I Wonder Why People Call Me a Perfectionist?, and Blue Mountain Majesty.

I also like to fussy-cut Mariner’s Compasses by drafting them so that four or eight pieces come together in the center to make a kaleidoscopic design.
