Tessellation is when a surface is covered (with a few gaps and no over) with a repeating number. Because the geometric quilts are a surface covered with small pieces of fabric, tessellation is a well-studied way to make a quilt pattern. There are only three possible tessellations with regular numbers (all sides and angles are the same): equilateral triangles, squares and hexagons. All of these are used for mosaic quilt patterns and multiple irregular figures or pairs of intervening figures.

Design tessellation patterns for the top of the geometric quilts part. With the exception of squares (or rectangles) there is a choice of how to handle the mosaic at the edges of the rug. The repeated pattern can go all the way to the edge, or the numbers can be sewn on a single cloth that goes to the edge – and tessellations stop just before the edge. Select the batting insulation material that runs between the top and back of the rug. Cotton is the traditional choice. Wool is warmer, but many people are allergic to wool and it can be difficult to wash.
Polyester wadding is available and it can provide nice bags to a blanket. Polyester has fine fibers, which can cause “bearding” where polyester fibers punch through the top or backing of the rug. Select the material that forms support of the geometric quilts kit. Traditionally, the frame is white cotton. If you use a solid color the rug is reversible. The supporting structure should be some nice material as this is the part of the blanket that actually touches the body. Find a large area – such as a table top – which you can use until the blanket is ready. Lay out support and make sure it is flat. Add support by the wearer. Lay the top of the blanket on the two lower layers.
Either the upper or the carrier should be slightly larger than the other two parts. The other two parts should be of the same size. Pin the blanket along the edges of the tessellation figures. His big “stroke” loops about one inch from each other along the pins and then removes the pins. The cover “sandwich” should be flat. Sew tight even seams along staple and take out stroke. Do this a row at the time until the geometric quilts review is ready. Fold over the edge and sew with the same tight even seams. Sew a strip of fabric (a sharpening) along each edge of the blanket. The edges of the blanket are worn out first and should be carefully reinforced.
