Rebecca did a beautiful job tapping into the “feeling” of her experience and translated her inspiration in a very natural and personal way. There is a powerful underlying feeling of aliveness, movement and energy that is not easy to capture in any art form let alone in a print for fabric. I think your color choices are modern and timeless which also extends the appeal and application of the design in a variety of sewing projects and is especially successful for quilting. Well done Rebecca! – Amy Butler
Great job, Rebecca! I just LOVE the colors you’ve used, especially in your primary print. The prints are an interesting combo. They work well together in terms of color and scale. I think they tell your story well without taking it too literally. My one suggestion would be to consider the spacing in your secondary print. Some of the “paths” could come across dominant if nto cut up into smaller pieces. But overall great work! I’d totally use your primary this second, if I could! - Carolyn Friedlander
It’s been a pleasure to watch your growth over the course of this competition, Rebecca. These two prints are just lovely. And you’re right – the addition of coordinates makes it much more challenging! I see your concept in both prints – free flowing, carefree, open, wandering. Your main print reminds me of a board game where you move from space to space – or a roller coaster… They both display randomness in a beautifully ordered way. You did a fantastic job of balancing the color in your secondary print – that couldn’t have been easy. Beautiful work. You’re my top pick this round. - Michele Rosenboom
