Quilts is the update version of the Hexagonal Quilts generator. This program implement variations of the Chaotic Quilts, that appears in the Symmetry in Chaos book.
In addition to the variations, Quilts allows you to select many color mapping methods and other effects.
Important Note: Quilts is a CPU intensive program, due to the large amount of trigonometric operations that it uses.

Quilt Index

When you press the Export button, by default the attractor is saved on Incendia images directory.
By pressing the Output Directory button, you can change this directory (temporally, when the program is started again,
it will return to the Incendia images directory).
Every new attractor uses a random name based on a combination of an index number plus the options selected.
By pressing the Random Index button, you can change the name index by a random one.
This is useful if you don't want to overwrite a saved attractor.
