Fabric arrived amazingly quickly and in perfect condition. I was sad, though, that the apple fabric pictured didn't make it into the bundle as I was looking forward to using it in a quilt.

Where Traditional Meets Technology

Hi, I'm Elizabeth Elliott, aka Libs. I design and make modern, bespoke quilts using modern technology. I also design fabrics, do lectures and teach quilting workshops.

In the '90's, I studied weaving and material arts at the Ontario College of Art & Design. As a textile artist, I have been designing and making quilts since 2009. I have always been drawn to the idea of taking a traditional and tactile art, like quilting, and marrying it with modern technology. Which is why I work from digital to analogue - the quick, random gratification of generative art combined with the intentional, slow-craft of building a quilt.

I began using generative design for my textiles after collaborating with Joshua Davis, who provided me with the inspiration and code framework in Processing. I play with various colour palettes, use simple geometric shapes and alter variables in the code to generate random compositions. The combinations are endless and addictive. When the digital results are so sexy that I want to wrap myself in them, I make them into quilts and textiles.

I'm inspired by good design, the randomness of nature, and code nerds. When I'm not obsessing over triangles and cotton solids, I spend my time hanging out with my amazing family in Toronto, Canada.
