"Ancestral Scherenschnitte, September 19, 1817”

Difficulty: Intermediate - Advanced

Reverse appliqué pattern – Hand directions & paper-piecing

(50" x 50")

Legacy is a confident intermediate - advanced level medallion-style quilt for hand reverse applique. The pattern was inspired by a family Scherenschnitte dated 1817 to announce the birth of Hannah Grover Lauck on September 19. The pattern has complete how-to directions, but you can also see our blogs & technique tutorials to find out more. We were inspired to bring this design to life by the fabrics from Batik Textile’s , Spring 2019.  Your fabric choices will make it come alive with your own unique style. The Scherenschnitte center medallion is framed by paper-pieced border blocks.

 Make it as a beautiful wall-hanging, or build a quilt around it with Legacy as the center.

Pattern has complete creation instructions using Eye of the Beholder’s Trace, Baste, Snip & Stitch technique for hand reverse needle-turn applique and Paper-piecing, supported by Technique Tutorials and blogs on this website, and full-size, durable pattern pieces.  There’s never a need to enlarge the pattern or re-position fabric.
