Quilt: October 2018

I’m finally getting around to sharing this quilt on my gallery! This design was created via code (generative art), and it was inspired by my previous improv quilt. When I was making that improv quilt, I wondered if I could emulate my decision making via code, and here is the result of that experiment. The “product” of the generative art was an SVG that I brought into Photoshop and divided into sections to complete that would minimize breaking long colored strips.

The quilt was pieced with Alison Glass Kaleidoscope (ombre), Robert Kaufman white kona cotton, and Aurifil 50 wt thread on my Juki. The backing is an aqua strip from Alison Glass Road Trip. Warm and Natural cotton batting was used, and combined with Aurifil 50 wt. straight line quilting via a walking foot. Because this quilt is all about the piecing, the quilting design was simple in outlining the colors.
