The Spirit of Geometry

Burkhardt: '....the two poles of all artistic expression in Islam: the sense of rhythm and the spirit of geometry. ...'

This wall-quilt is my way of expressing this in the medium in which I most often work. As for how it is created, let's just say that it's not a technique for the faint-hearted!

Gorgeous work. As well as the fun of calculating the geometry, I'm guessing that one of the key points was clever use of border prints?
