Virtual Gallery of selected pieces available for viewing January 1!
Landscapes, portraits, and nature can often be reconfigured successfully using geometric shapes. Or a geometric construction may resemble a real-life form. Alternatively, the subject of a quilt can be given prominence if made of geometric shapes on a background that is free flowing. Or a geometric background that resembles in some way what it represents can be effective.
Let geometric shapes sing. Straight-edged triangles, squares, rhombuses, hexagons, to mention a few, curved shapes such as ellipses and spirals, and/or non-standard shapes. Traditional quilt blocks could be incorporated. Sophisticated geometric constructions including fractals might be your specialty. A major impact of submitted works must be the artistic use of geometry.

Pat Forster entered the art-quilt world ten years ago, bringing with her a love of Geometry, which is a carryover from her career in mathematics. Pat’s quilt designs are grounded in Geometry. She plays with shapes, letting real-world subjects emerge, and uses quilt titles to convey those subjects to the viewer. Alternately she addresses subjects, including social issues, by embellishing a geometric design with machined text.
