One of my larger pieces -- this one measures 55 inches square. Its genesis was a page of doodling on a sleepless night. Following a technique by quilt designer Ricky Tims, I folded a square piece of paper into halves, then quarters, then eighths, and I drew a design on one of the folded eighths. I opened up the piece of paper and reflected the drawing seven times onto each of the other sections. After a bit of tweaking, the final design emerged, and I couldn't wait to play with color to give it life. The process speaks to all my sensibilities -- I love the symmetry, the fluid movement, the balance of color. There are more of these designs on the drawing board -- the possibilities intrigue me.
