Computer Quilting has come of Age!
What does it have to offer you the quilter?

Creative Juices Flow as Computers Aide the Innovative Quilter

Quilt Designer: Birte Hilberg
Quilt Program used: Creative Impulse

Creative Impulse was written for Birte Hilberg by her husband after she was unable to find software to generate the ideas she knew a computer was capable of doing. Creative Impulse brings a new dimension to quilts by adding special mathmaticals effects with a simple click of the button.

Fish


Yellow Palms


This is the initial, basic block made from 4 very simple squares.

The "Horizontal twist" curved effect was applied.

The "Vertical twist" curved effect was applied

Finally, the design was shifted left using the "Move up" effect, and viola.
