    Does anyone have instructions on how to make a fractured quilt? Something like shown here

    http://brenda723.vox.com/library/pos...sooner+quilts/

    where you use multiple panels and cut them at an angle and sew them back together off center?

    There may be another name for this technique. I recently saw it at a quilt show and I'd love to give it a try.

    yes, its a fairly simple technique, there's a book on the market that teaches you have to make the most simple to the most detailed fracture.

    What a cool quilt. I'm not sure I could make it. It would make me think I have double vision.

    This was done at one of the quilt classes that I've attended. It was a class where at least three different projects were covered. As I wasn't particularly interested in it, I didn't pay that much attention. I think it was just two identical panels each cut at the same angle but not at the same exact starting point. It almost give me a headache to look at it. I thought it would be a cruel joke to display one of these in an ophthalmologist office---that or it would drum up more business! ;) :mrgreen:

    Here's a google book on it. I hope it helps. I'm going to save it for future reference. Thanks for posting that quilt!
