"Thank you all. Jo, Quasicrystals and quasiperiodic tilings (such as the Penrose Dart and Kite tiling) are directly related to this pattern which is based on the Ammann-Beenker tiling."

"Wow. Can't even find the quasiperodic as such on the Dutch wikipedia. Only related subjects like quasichrystals and certain types of tiling. Inovative and very well exected too."

"A single repeat looks like this: It appears in different rotations and in places one copy overlaps another copy. The way I decide which of the many patterns to make is based on what I envision when I look at the pattern.  If I can see an…"

"Still trying to identify a single repeat and failing. And still not getting bored looking at it. I know you let a computer calculate designs. What makes you choose the ones you do as bobbin lace and how do you go about it?"

This is a quasiperiodic bobbin lace ground that I designed. It repeats, but not in the usual checkerboard, brick or honeycomb manner. The pattern can go on forever, just like other grounds, but it is never exactly the same. I used a grand Venetian…

Jo replied to Veronika Irvine's discussion Using Inkscape to design lace in the group Computer Aided Design
"The right side off the images below reveals a problem with the method introduced by Veronika: the distances in the example vary from less than 3 to more than 4 mm. On the left hand the second method applied to the nerve of a leaf combined with…"

"The feature offers also possibilities for tape-lace trails too. Fusing can close gaps, but a too big value causes strange curves and bends."

Jo replied to Veronika Irvine's discussion Using Inkscape to design lace in the group Computer Aided Design
"Just tried Veronika's tip and it did not seem to work. Appeared I had several problems: A real circle for the dot doesn't work, it should be a path. I gave the dot just a fill, it should have at least a stroke The (leaf)-shape path…"

Tell us more about your lace interests.
I learned to tat as a child and I learned to make Bobbin Lace through the Ottawa Guild of Lacemakers. I look at ways of applying Math and Computer Science to the patterns in Continuous Bobbin Lace. I would really welcome the opportunity to discuss these ideas and my findings with experienced lacemakers.
Give us titles of lace books or articles you have written, that you want us to know about.

Thank you Veronika for accepting me as friend.

As I promised it, I continue to translate Jo's site but I have some, but not too grave, personal marigolds to be settled.

Cordially.

Guy.
