Introducing Dynamic Patterns!

I just added a Patterns page to my blog, because I finally wrote some patterns! But instead of the normal patterns, I decided to do something fun called dynamic patterns.

What are dynamic patterns? They are patterns generated on the fly based on a few preferences, just for you. That means you can customize the size, colors, and complexity (usually) and get something wholly unique! The idea came about a few months ago when I wrote a half-square triangle generator and I was having so much fun just trying different color combinations and generating patterns. I then decided to actually make a quilt, Haphazard, using that generator. But I thought, there should be a way for me to put this generator on my blog so other people can play with it too.

So here it is ... bright and shiny on the Patterns page, my collection of dynamic patterns. (Alright, I only have 2 at the moment, but I've already got some ideas for new ones to add in the future!)

Each pattern comes with some options, such as picking your colors and the size of your blocks. Then, a pattern will be generated for you, and you can keep generating until you find one you like, and then you can save it.

So, I hope you will go play with it! If you make something using them, I'd love to see it!


  1. This is awesome! Thank you! As a fellow engineer, I really appreciate the appeal of an algorithm driven pattern designer :)

  2. This is fun! I've always loved that painting that Lisa has at her penthouse in Green Acres. Love the Mondrian look for quilts, too!

  3. These are so much fun :) super awesome you are creating them :)

  4. What a fun idea. I just may have to try one...or two...or more. Thank you!

  5. Can't wait to try this! Was thinking of you and your skills when reading another blog about making fabric requirements....then I read this. I am really looking forward to trying this.

  6. I just realized that I never left a comment earlier; I've bookmarked this page because I intend on using both of your patterns. So nice and kind of you to offer this to your fellow bloggers. I think someone should do a QAL using one of these patterns next year. I already have a bundle of fabric I want to use to play around with Mondrian. Wish me fun and big thanks for creating this.


Thank you for visiting and for your comments! I try to reply to comments, so if you don't hear from me, check if you're a no-reply blogger. Have a nice day!
