A tessellation of a few similarly shaped root vegetables - viz beetroot, turnip and swede (all from the tap root subset).
A tessellation of a few similarly shaped root vegetables - viz beetroot, turnip and swede (all from the tap root subset). Their fat bodies interlock at the sides and the roots and shoots interlock at top and bottom. Currently displaying a 4" by 12" repeat (ie approximately life size) in three appropriate sets of colours. (The moire effect at the FQ in the smaller scale version is amusing but purely an on-screen artifact.) Other colours, stylings, sizes and orientations are available on request and you can even ask for a combination of several designs together.

I mostly appreciate the artistic merits of vegetables rather than the supposed culinary ones!

Root veggies are a really important part of a persons diet and contain nutritional needs you can not find in any other foods. I avoided beets and turnips for years because I didn't like the way my grandmother fixed them the first time I tried them. She included the greens which were too intense for my simple pallet. Now I know they are best eaten raw and cut them up in my salads. This is a great design sef. I know from trying that tessellations are mind boggling but this is perfect.
I like this. I wasn't yet a SF member at the time of whatever contest in which this was entered last year, but with it's lovely ogee-like lines, expert drawing & tessellation, pleasant colors, and rarely seen, but charming nonetheless, subject matter (I happen to like root vegetables, although I have learned through the years that many do not.), I know it would have gotten a vote from me.
I've finally made a life-sized version of this - for those people who like really big repeats (eg perhaps on a real fruit+veg stall). It can still be scaled down for smaller repeats though.
Wonderful! The colors are lovely......now I'm getting hungry! :o)

I've had to withdraw it from sale while reprinting to check I can find suitable v2 profile colours. I should probably redraw it at a larger scale (eg life-sized) at some point too.

I love this, it makes me laugh. Plus I like turnips
No, no moire effect visible in printed form - just plump ridged/layered veggies. I suppose "your eyes may vary" still applies, depending on scale, distance and choice of fabric. My guess would be that the voile is the most likely to induce moire style effects.

I haven't seen it in print yet but I suspect the moire effect won't survive the transition. Though it may depend on the printing and viewing scales there too.

It did need to exist - as does that moire effect too, very interesting piece of design work.
I decided it needed to exist.
Another great tessellation, sef! Nice work!
Thanks, I tried very hard (using my recently printed whole yard of colour explorations!) to get colours which were close to those of the real vegetables, both on-screen and in print, but at the points in their respective ranges (swedes are especially variable) where they would also tie together well as a set.
The contrasting colours look wonderful as they flow through this tessellating pattern, Sef.
I'm a fan of tessellations. I like this one.
At least it has amused a few people then. I can't quite tessellate anything/everything but I can certainly give it a jolly good try in many cases.
my favorite! good luck!
At least you had the maths joke covered, weavingmajor, since I had no spare time to even try out the rest of my ideas.
I probably need the "luck", isabelc. I'm not sure the design shows to its best advantage at this scale (although it is a sensible one for a print) but I only barely had time to generate just the one attempt.
excellent tessellation, and the stripes are a nice bonus!
I love the geometric feel and how its repeated!! Good luck!
