@panzade,
n. A geometric pattern that is repeated at ever smaller scales to produce irregular shapes and surfaces that cannot be represented by classical geometry. Fractals are used especially in computer modeling of irregular patterns and structures in nature.

@farmerman,
They have geography in Nebraska?

If you look at surface features: flat. If you dig: mud.

@aperson,
I dont know who designed the pattern or how, but this one is the most interesting to me - you can see the swirl and movement better when the picture is small - I'll link it here (if you go to the third page it's the second image on the top line) but I like the way the straight lines work together to make that swirling movement, and the colors.
So this is more of a traditionally pieced quilt - in that it is made up of pieces or strips of cloth pieced together.

It seems that for most fractal quilts - the person prints the image onto one large piece of material and then embroiders, usually french knots, following the curving lines and defining them and then hand quilts the fabric.

It seems some people have had problems with adding pictures. If you can't, just give a link.

@aperson,
Briefly going over the steps to post an image, right click on the image, click on Properties, copy the full image address which should end in .jpeg. Then click the Img button in the response page, and you will get a [img]I(/img] with the cursor blinking. Just copy of .jpeg address and click on Reply.
