White Quilt

White Quilt is an original, digitally designed pattern of a girih-tiled center medallion with floral borders derived from my photographs of botanical gardens. I extract flowers and foliage from their backgrounds and rearrange them to make new compositions. In this way, my piecing is digital. The word girih is an Arabic word for knot used by Peter J. Lu in his 2007 paper on Decagonal and Quasicrystalline Tilings in Medieval Islamic Architecture. The girih tile set consists of five tiles: a decagon, a pentagon, a rhombus, a hexagon and a bowtie. $5500 51h x 53w
