Heighway Dragon Quilt

Dragon Curve

I finished off my dragon curve quilt at the end of December 2009. It was a while in the making.

I coded up the some postscript versions using the bit diddling method suggested by wikipedia the coloring idea was not mine, either.

The half square triangles finish at 1.5"; the background is pieced out of squares that finish at 3" and there's a total of 256 triangles.

The curve is framed (within the quilt) with space to allow a rotated interlocking copy of the dragon curve, and this second curve is picked out in the quilting. In hindsight, I should have been thinking more about area fills and less about where the lines go, for quilting it, since the line is hard to follow.
