So for my entry in the ALQS3, I decided to use this technique. I started with four identical 18 in squares of fabric.The late Ellen Adams, a Canadian fiber artist, developed a method of cutting and manipulating identical motifs to produce images that seemed to explode. She accomplished this by cutting motifs along shifted lines and rearranging them. “Fracturing” and expanding the image in this way fools the eye into seeing the motif much larger than its original size.
This one shows all the A and B squares sewn together.
The C square is then cut into 1.5 in squares AFTER trimming 3⁄4" from the top edge. These go directly beneath the A squares.
The D square is cut into 1.5 in squares AFTER trimming 3⁄4" from the top and the left side edges. These go beside the C squares, beneath the B squares.
Here are all the squares sewn into rows.
Here is the finished quilt. It is 24 in square.
Here is a close, detail photo.
Here is a view of the back with the sleeve sewn and label sewn on. You can see the machine quilting in this view.
