Fractured Flannels

Fractured Flannels, An Escape from Pain: Lydia Shimek

Most of the red, black and white flannel scraps are from my ‘stitch and bitch’ friend Rosemary Draper. The blocks were pieced during the uproar over the closure of Shaughnessy Hospital where I worked in 1993.


Downtown Eastside Centre for the Arts is auctioning Fractured Flannels as part of the Fabric Arts Program 2009 – Community Quilt Project.
