About the following Quilts: The quilts below have been developed as part of a Coffee Table Series. These quilts can sit on a coffee table and the tiny modules (one as small as 7 1/2") can be rearranged in any number of setting arrangements.

Star Dance
(Real Quilt in Fabric!)

This is one module of Star Dance's six modules sections. It was the first quilt in a series called The Coffee Table Series. A module of this quilt was photographed with a digital camera and imported into Photo Deluxe. In Photo Deluxe, it was duplicated and the pieces arranged in various setting. 4 of many possible arrangements are show below.

Program & Equipment used: Digital Camera and Photo Deluxe
Finished Size: each module is 8 1/2" equilateral triangles
Date Created: 1994

Digital Delight 


 Module created in Stitch Painter Module size is: 7 1/2"
Date Created: 1998


4 arrangement of many possible solutions.
Digital Delight was created in Stitch Painter so Kathleen could experiment with using a graphic program to create quilts. She created one module, then duplicated the image and experimented with the arrangements. Remember, each section is a 7 1/2" bound section allowing for individual movement of each module into multiple arrangements.
