Quilt Inspiration: Pattern on PatternJune 25, 2009
I designed this quilt top some time ago in Electric Quilt. I used ideas from Ruth B. McDowell’s book Pattern on Pattern to create the design. In the book, Ms McDowell suggests laying a pattern in different sizes on top of each other to create sub-patterns.
I like the repetition of shapes.It looks almost as though the shapes are echoes of each other or maybe like they are ripples on a pond. I also like how the border contains the whole thing.
If I were ever to actually make this into a quilt I would probably quilt it with a simple curvy panto.
So many ideas, so little time.
