Description:

Designing Tessellations opens the door for quilters to thousands of new and exciting patterns by showing them how to create tessellations–designs made up of the repeated use of seemingly complex but deceptively simple shapes that interlock perfectly to flow across a quilt. Inspired by artist M. C. Escher, Jinny Beyer introduces quilters to the fascinating world of symmetry and then clearly shows how to experiment with shapes and images to create sensational, tessellating designs. Quilters will not only learn how to produce interlocking geometric patterns, but also will learn how easy it is to create true-to-life images of birds, fish, butterflies, and more in the style of Escher. Features include: – More than 125 color photographs and 2,000 step-by-step color drawings – Dozens of quilts featuring tessellated designs
