Hand and Machine piecing, Hand Quilting, 15" by 12" by 3", 2006
Escher had several works where the art came out of the
flat plane and went back in. Tumbling blocks is a traditional quilt
pattern consisting of three 60-120 degree rhombus. It is well suited to
come out of the plane.
"Great Wheel of Theodosis"
Fabric 'Quilt', 18" by 18" by 1" , 2006
While the wheel of Theodosis usually stops at the square
root of 17, this is due to the overlaying the previous root. When taken
to the third dimension, we can go as high as the quilter's frustration
level allows. The 'peaks' are roots of even numbers, while the 'valleys'
are roots of odd numbers.
