Question of the Day: Do you Tessellate?
I just finished writing an article about Tessellation for Suite 101 and can't get the process out of my head. Have you experienced the tessellation mania?
Semd a photo of your project to my email to post here with a link back to your blog or website. Or tell us about your 'affair' with tessellating.
And feel free to read about tessellation in my article -- let me know what you think. -- Dawn
I love a quick response. Here's the first photo. It was recommended by Diana Feit. Unusual in that it uses two shapes -- birds and fishes. The pattern can be downloaded from Quilters Newsletter. It looks like a fun way to use gently curved piecing, too.
Christine Thresh offers her Elephants Around block that she's selling. Part of the proceeds, she said, goes toward the Elephant Sanctuary. It is a play on the Snail's Trail pattern. Note the interlinked trunks.
