Pennee Clanton Workshop

Fractured Quilts, "fractures" for short, are a way or 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).  They are easy to make, wonderful to see, and should be in every quilter's bag of tricks.  Pennee is going to share her Fractured Quilt technique at a one day workshop on Thursday, August 3 at Terra Sancta Retreat Center from 9 am until 4 pm.  The fee is $50 and includes lunch.
