Brenda Esslinger
Fractured Quilts

will be presented at both meetings

IMAGEBrenda Esslinger has been designing and making quilts for nearly 40 years and has been professionally quilting and teaching since 2002 when, along with her sister, she opened My Sister's Quilt in Edmond, Oklahoma. The shop closed in 2007 at which time she opened her own long arm quilting business, Toadally Awesome Quilting.

She has won numerous awards for her work including three Best of Shows at the Oklahoma State Fair. In 2009 her first book, Fabulous Fractures, was published. This has recently been followed with Fracture Frenzy. After making her first two fractures with a different method, she threw the bottom third of a quilt in the trash; however, in the process of sewing she thought of a better way to do it! She utilizes strip piecing to make these quilts fast and easy. Her method requires less time than the original, there are fewer pieces and less opportunity for error!

Brenda's trunk show will excite your imagination!!
