A strange title for a little quilt? Let me explain: When my son started taking geometry, his first assignment was a paper explaining the difference between Euclidian and Non-Euclidian Geometry. We spent a week going to the library doing research. This was before Google; heck, it was before personal computers! I then spent a lot of time typing said paper and learning something I thought would never be useful to me for the rest of my life
But little did I know that I would, much later, take up quilting!
To translate is a geometry function that quilters unknowingly do every day, unless they taught geometry. A simple explanation is that it means to repeat a shape without changing its direction or dimensions. The perfect example of this is the flying geese pattern, if it continues in a straight line without the size of the "geese" changing. And thus my quilt--several sizes of flying geese continuing past the edges of the quilt in a straight line.
As some of you know, I have been of commission for the last few months, having and then healing from surgery. And so this could possibly set a record for the longest time spent making a 12x12 quilt! I would spend about ten minutes or so on it at a time and then go take a nap for two hours. No joke! I hope to make up for the two quilts I missed, including one for my own theme word--comfort. That is something I received a lot of the last few months from family and friends, even women I do not know. Rita and Alice: thank you for the food and the chocolate and the wine that my husband needed more than you know!
PS: From Alice: Because of her continued illness, Janet asked me to post her photo and the explanation of her quilt.
