dusk (), click to enlargeDusk (1999)  60cm x 47cm (23.5" x 19")

My very first quilt. After buying six Fat Quarters in primary colors from my Local Quilt Shop I came up with this design to fit the colors.

animal-blocks (), click to enlargeAnimal Blocks (2000)  153cm x 205cm (60" x 80.5")

After my first experiment I decided to make a bigger quilt that would actually be of use. The quilt features a large baby blocks motif. Each side of the blocks has an animal pattern quilted onto it, hence the name of the quilt. The back shows the quilt pattern more clearly.

The idea for this quilt came after buying a packet of 4" squares (Jinny Beyer's Basic Reality collection). I used EQ4 to design the pattern. The name comes from a (totally unrelated) movie, which I'm sure you can Google out for yourself if you really want to. Quilt detail.

Another packet of 4" squares (P&B solid colors) and the reading of Jinny Beyer's Designing Tesselations led to this quilt. The patchwork was done by paper piecing; the individual paper piecing designs were computed and printed using a specially written computer program.

monet-sunflowers (Monet's Zonnebloemen), click to enlargeMonet's Sunflowers (Monet's Zonnebloemen 2000-2002)  138cm x 181cm (54" x 71")

A painting by Claude Monet is the basis for this design. I used the computer to break the painting up in rectangular pieces of different sizes and shapes. The size of the shapes is determined by the amount of color variation in the original picture. Quilt detail.
