My passion for fussy cutting was sparked when I joined a sew along on Instagram. I chose one of my favourite Liberty prints, Ianthe, and I soon became fascinated by the number of different stars that could be created by tessellating 6o degree diamonds. I began a study in fussy cutting to see how many different designs could be created from Ianthe. Not only did it show off the versatility of fussy cutting, but I also created a unique piece of work resulting in 55 different stars made from 3˝, 1½˝ and ¾˝diamonds. Ianthe is a quintessential example of Art Nouveau design, characterised by its sinuous, highly stylised layout of delicate flowers and curling lines. Ianthe was originally created as a wallpaper layout by French artist R. Beauclair in c. 1902. Liberty Fabrics have now introduced three new colorways of Ianthe into their new classics collection, so it is now available online and in your local Liberty stockist. I have provided illustrated fussy cutting instructions for each Ianthe star in the pattern to create the quilt and cushion.
