    Okay, so it was just a practice square to test the technique, but it turned out so well, and I had additional fabric and coordinating fabrics, it is evolving. Here is where I am so far!

    Very nice! I bought the Brenda Esslinger "Fabulous Fractures" a while ago and have been searching for fabric to play with. Are you using her method (strip method) or Terri Kirchner's method?

    Beautiful. I saw this technique years ago and saved the instructions for the future.

    I really like the effect you got on yours.
    peace

    Using the strip method. Can't believe how simple it is!

    Ooooooh, and I think asian panels would be great. That is what I purchased for this, but wanted to practice, hence the current project.
