Pacific International Quilt Festival 2013 – Repetition

There’s something about repeating forms that is soothing. Rows of trees, lines in vineyards, stacks of plates, a well organized fabric stash….Repetition is a key element in quilting, and my favorite. You might even say that my favorite quilts are obsessively and compulsively repetitive. To me, the sum parts makes a much greater whole.
I love the way that the artist quilters here used repetition today’s shots from this year’s Pacific International Quilt Festival.

The quilts here speak for themselves, but something to note – The squares on this quilt – Mere Color – are less than 1/2″ each.
