When I talked to you last, I had what would normally be a finished quilt top; but had decided to do more - so I slashed through the top, and added some inserts to make "Shattered" which would be of a piece with my burgeoning "fractured" series. 

I was pleased that it fit in so naturally, and pleased too, to try something out of my comfort zone.  

This was a really fun exercise - thanks very much to Rayna and Judith (for introducing us to Rayna's technique) - a great start to a new year. 



  1. wow this is awesome! Just found this blog through Rayna!

  2. Wow Kit, this didn't turn out like I thought it would. What a pleasant surprise. I think the addition of the BIG slices really gave the quilt more life. (...and I'm jealous you already have it quilted)

  3. I love this - the fractured looks fives it so much more energy.

  4. LOVE this! The colors are phenomenal!

  5. Kit - those extra slashes make all the difference!
    they give this piece so much movement!

  6. It was good before but now, WOW! It grabs you!

  7. Thanks for showing all the steps you went through with this quilt. I was fascinated to watch the development.

    Great finish!

  8. That really makes a difference. I like it!
