REVERSE! Look at how wonderful the Silhouette patterns look when you reverse the dark and light fabrics. The silhouette in dark looks just as great as it does in light fabrics! Just use the same pattern and think in reverse! how cool is this!
I finally finished the Ammonite Shell Silhouette pattern and I love it. I decided to outline all the pieces with gold metallic thread which was very time consuming but worth it. I think it would look just as great with lots of brown or gold free motion quilting. I am hoping that others try this and share the quilting ideas they come up with! Available on Craftsy in Instant download for only $7.00 and you get the pattern in two sizes. One 8 1/2" x 11" and one for the 14" x 16" finished piece. How fun!

Ammonite Shell Silhouette... WIP (Work In Progress)
I'm just beginning to put the pieces of the Ammonite Shell Silhouette into place. I am using a clear plastic or acetate sheet to help with placement. I was thinking of using gold thread when I free motion quilt this..hmmm. Stay tuned for this will be made into Silhouette pattern #7!
FYI: Ammonites are believed to be the most widely known fossil and it is typically in this spiral form shell. They lived over 65 million years ago and became extinct along with the dinosaurs. They belong to a group known as cephalopods such as octopus, squid and cuttlefish, etc. Many people use these fossils to make beautiful jewelry among other lovely things.
Knife Edge binding is what Anita at Bloomin' Workshop calls this. Some call it Invisible binding and some Facing. Either way she has a great way of explaining this method with photos too. You can always find all my links for bindings, finishings, free motion quilting and more on the pages of my website dedicated just for those specific topics. Of course my patterns are shown on the Home page as well. SueFreebernDesigns.com
