Spirals

Monday, November 16th, 2009
A trip to Paris in 2003, so many things to see:¬† I took photos of¬† staircases.¬† When I got home, I found Ned May’s¬†¬†Custom Fibonacci Spiral Generator¬†and began designing quilts with spirals.

This fall, IQA sponsored a contest for photos which inspired quilts.  My photo of the stairwell in the Arc de Triomphe was included, and was the photo from the exhibit chosen for the Houston program.

When in Paris, don’t miss the Unicorn tapestries at the Musee national du Moyen Age, in the Latin Quarter.¬† Stunning.
