    Tesselated doll quilt

    I made this from the trimmings from a larger quilt that I finished a couple of years ago. This one is 19 X 23.

    What does "tesselated" mean? I like the quilt whatever it means.

    I named the large wall hanging Longing for Spring. I made it one February. I didn't have a twister ruler but followed the directions in the book Square Dance. The original had a second twist giving me all these little scraps. The original was posted on this board years ago.

    Sorry I misspelled it -- should be tessellated. It is a design that fits together like a mosaic.

    Tesselated is when you have no "empty space" between a repeated figure or design. M. C. Escher did a lot of that kind of art, like with fish and birds in the same picture... the pieces or figures fit together like a jigsaw puzzle. There's some kind of math behind it. Anyway, those wonky pinwheels all fit together, and depending on the color treatment, can really trick the eye.
