The World of Geometry - 20 Triangle Globe - The globe pattern came from a project
that Stuart Levy and Brad Barber were working on at the Geometry Center in the early
1990’s. The patterns were generated to form triangles that were to be assembled to
form a globe. I was wondering what the triangles would look like quilted. This globe is
made with polyester fabric. It is a one of a kind!!!!!
The World of Geometry - 50 Triangle Globe - One globe was not enough for me, so I
continued with the project with 100% cotton. The construction with cotton was
much easier. However, the size of the globe made it difficult to use in the classroom.
Orthic Triangles - A Tribute to Douglas Hofstadter - At a lecture conducted by
Dr. Hofstadter at Indiana University, the top part of this quilt was used. I was fascinated
by the fact that if an isosceles triangle was the start of the process, and then altitudes
were dropped, then an orthic triangle resulted by using the foot of each altitude. The
pattern was a springboard to an interesting quilt.
Graeco-Latin Squares - Sudoku players will enjoy the ideas behind this quilt.
This quilt has 100 cells formed by a 10 by 10 square. Each row and column has the
larger square color occurring only once. Similarly, with the smaller squares, each color
occurs only once. Hence, 100 unique cells. Sudoku is a special subset of a larger
category of Graeco-Latin Squares.
To Jackson - My grandson Jackson Cartwright was the inspiration behind this quilt.
His birth is a joy to his grandmother. So, I celebrated by quilting his handprints
and footprints into the fabric!
