Quilt design meets computer science.

Claire Sowton brings to quilt design a background researching and managing programmes of arts activity and an interest in data visualisation.

Developing this tool is as much provocation as it is a new way to design a quilt. Which special moments are brought to life using the pattern creator? What forms of stitching are used by quilters to complement a design or add new layers of meaning? Do new design processes attract new audiences to quilting?

What is in the pattern?

The pattern you receive will provide you with the fabric requirements, cutting instructions and piecing information to make your quilt in a variety of sizes. All you need to do then is choose your fabrics and start making.

Both Reulanach (machine-piecing) and Reul-liuil (foundation paper piecing) patterns at pitched at different quilters with some experience. A range of video tutorials are provided on YouTube (@cloudquilting) show you how to make each star block. Consult the Frequently Asked Questions page for more information about the patterns.
