Pattern has many connotations. It can be a form used for replication, a repeat behavior, or a design imbued with associated meaning. The scope of this work explores pattern found in garment construction and handcraft traditions such as quilting,  layered with design elements found in fabric customs from around the world. Using encaustic and collage methods provides the opportunity to create studies for larger pieces that incorporate handwoven and industrially woven fabrics.
