Elizabeth Elliott Turns Digital Code into Quilts | Modern Quilting

"I'm Elizabeth (Libs) Elliott. I'm a textile designer exploring the intersection of technology and traditional craft by using generative design to build handmade quilts. A deep appreciation for craftsmanship, design history and future-focused applications are all reflected in my work."

Elizabeth Elliott's video: Intro To Modern Quilting with Libs Elliott:

"All Libs Elliott quilts are randomly designed using a programming language called Processing. The project began in 2012 as a collaboration with designer and technologist, Joshua Davis (, who provided the original code framework. Using Processing allows Elizabeth to quickly edit the code and generate random compositions from simple geometric shapes. She then deconstructs the rendered composition to determine the fabric requirements and best method for construction. Each quilt takes several weeks to make and, so far, no two quilts have been the same. Visit for more."
