flora-and-fungi (), click to enlargeFlora & Fungi (2004)  123cm x 123cm (48.5" x 48.5")

A rendition of four (holiday)snapshots of flowers and mushrooms. The photos were converted into a patchwork pattern using the computer. Each patch is shaped differently, but the design makes it possible to sew them together in straight lines. Quilt detail.

This quilt shows the logo of the Protestant Church in the Netherlands (PCN). The unification of three Protestant churches into the PCN happened on 1 May 2004. Quilt detail.

checkerboard (Schaakbord), click to enlargeCheckerboard (Schaakbord 2003)  99cm x 81cm (39" x 32")

Designed by using a 3D modeling computer program and tracing the resulting picture in EQ4 to be able to print templates for the pieces (all shaped slightly different). Quilt detail.

spin-off (), click to enlargeSpin-off (2003)  130cm x 130cm (51" x 51")

This design derives from the tensided tablecloth. While making the tablecloth I discovered unexpected circular patterns which I transformed into five perfect circles, overlapping in the middle of this quilt. Each circle has its own theme; the basic colors for the circles are matched to the patterned fabrics used in the centres of the pentagons. Quilt detail.
