Fabrics with very large or no repeat create dynamic results. When the repeat is as large or larger than the work-piece, no two results will come out quite the same. This is precisely the source of their interest. They impose unpredictable variation without requiring every variation to be mapped out.. Sparse patterns use large swathes of negative space. Splice patterns weave together very different elements to create the effect. Still others in this collection Zooms in and out, changing the scale over the run of the pattern.
