Rule 73 Quilt

red and white quilt of rule 73 cellular automata pattern

This quilt was made between January and May 2015; I'd embargoed the photos pending it making its way to its new home, which it did this month, when I travelled to Toronto (on somewhat short notice).

The pattern is a rule 73 cellular automata. The seed is lightly engineered to get the width/look I wanted - I generated a bunch with random seeds, then picked out sections I liked and shifted them around. Scale is 1" per square, and it's strip pieced in panels, and machine quilted in vertical lines, out of Kona "tomato" and Kona white.
