Symmetry & Surprise: The Kaleidoscope as Design Inspiration

KALEIDOSCOPE – the very word promises surprise and magic, change and chance. Exploding with visual excitement, a kaleidoscopic design organizes an abundance of color and shape into a complex, coherent and unique whole. This slide lecture traces my evolving quilt series in which the multifaceted, luminous and random nature of a kaleidoscope is explored on a quilt’s flat surface.

Paula’s Bio

Paula’s quilts have achieved international recognition for the innovative and complex designs inspired by the bilateral symmetry of kaleidoscopic images. Honored by inclusion in the Twentieth Century’s 100 Best American Quilts, her designs have inspired products including the vast carpet in the Hilton Americas hotel in Houston, TX and were showcased in the American Folk Art Museum’s first one person exhibition highlighting the work of a contemporary quilt artist (2009).
