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 am a two-trick pony (with a nod to Paul Simon). My quilts are either patchwork or knotwork.
I use the operations of symmetry and a single patch to create my patchwork quilts. They are tessellations, patterns of one or more interlocking shapes (think M.C. Escher). I have generated more quilts than I could ever hope to execute in fabric.
My knotwork quilts are either large-scale Celtic knots or designs of my own. I have a unique method of weaving fabric to achieve my knots.
