From the Author:
Fractured quilts, "fractures" for short, are a
way of making images more interesting and more attractive.
They provide a view similar to what you would see in a fractured
mirror, hence the name, or when looking through a teleidoscope
(similar to a kaleidoscope, but with an open view).
Fractured quilts are made by taking more than one copy of
an image, either a photo transfer or a commercially printed
fabric, slicing each copy a bit differently, then sewing
them back together to create an "exploded" image.
This book's purpose is to inspire you. I have included detailed
instructions for the basic fracturing technique as well as
two of its variations. You will only find one quilt pattern
in this book. I have provided it as an example of how fractures
can be worked into everyday quilts that are meant to be used.
