Linda Ballard, Fractured Crystals

Linda's famous quilt, Fractured Crystals, will be the workshop.

The amazing technique begins with a square piece of fabric, or other shape, to which strips of fabric are attached and then cut with a rotary cutter in a very special way. The results are entire blocks or parts of blocks quickly and accurately achieved. To this end, the creator, Jodi Barrows has designed a special ruler called the Square in a Square® Technique Ruler. The theme is a square inside a square, but the variation which Jodi calls "Options™" is quite remarkable.

What do you see when looking at this quilt? You see depth, but are uncertain as to where the individual blocks are. There are 3 blocks in this quilt, but they're not used equally. There are many speed methods for piecing the blocks. Several sizes are offered.
