Christopher Carlson, Nina Paley and Theodore Gray: Algorithmic Quilting. In: Bridges 2015. Pages 231–238



A project to produce a “quiltimation”, an animation in which every frame is a quilt, motivated the development of automatic methods for generating single-line fills of arbitrary regions. We present one slice through a developing kit of algorithmic quilting tools: a 4-step process for generating fills, each step of which can be varied to yield diverse graphic effects.
