No, I am not Mexican.
No, I am not your grandma (nor your grandpa neither).
My name is Raymond K. Houston. I am a sixtyish Black male quilter (not to be confused with blackmail quilter), and the author of this site.
I am an artist; I create quilts.
I create two kinds of quilts: patchwork and applique.
I use symmetry to design my patchwork quilts. The quilts are tessellations, interlocking shapes without gaps or overlaps (think M.C. Escher). I have designed more quilts than I could ever hope to execute in fabric. Tessellation Nation in the menu above will take you to my library of patchwork designs.
My applique quilts focus on large-scale Celtic knots. I have a unique method of weaving loops of fabric to achieve my knots. See my posts under Celtic Knots in the menu above.
