Wrapping up, Looking back
"Repetition" is taken literally, with the repeated squares. But this piece is also a look back on all the Viewpoints9 quilts I've done over the years. As I went through them, I looked for things that tend to reoccur in my work. I definitely favor a secondary-color palette (purple, green, orange) and neutral gray. The squares were made from scraps leftover from past challenges.
I also noticed a tendency to use circles and spirals in my recent pieces. These loose, sketchy circles were a fun way to add color and energy to an otherwise static grid pattern. I enjoyed tossing them onto the quilt and then interlocking the spirals in some places.
