    My (Dutch) other half has just introduced me to the work of the Dutch artist Escher - link http://www.mcescher.nl/ - because he thought it was good inspiration for a quilt (bless him - Sooooo supportive and encouraging!). I am really intrigued by the idea of making the positve/negative images in fabric and it must be possible?!

    Any ideas or advice how to go about it gratefully received!

    Cheers all,

    Here is a link that has a little about tessellating designs, you can google it and it brings up quite a bit.

    Wow that's great thanks - didn't realise it had already been done! My OH thought he'd had an original idea!

    k3n, here's a site where you can design yout own tessellations. http://gwydir.demon.co.uk/jo/tess/tess.htm There are many fascinating things, not to mention great design possibilities, there, so have fun exploring the entire site. Here's the site index http://gwydir.demon.co.uk/jo/tess/index.htm

    And here's another to explore http://www.tessellations.org/tess-site-map.htm
    and another http://library.thinkquest.org/16661/index2.html
    and one more http://www.zianet.com/breynold/tessel/tessel.html
    Needless to say, I use tessellations often in my quilts and love to play with them. :oops: Have fun!!
