For the second class project, we had to create either a 1 or 2 inch motif to insert into a 10 x 10 inch grid in order to create a repetitive and creative pattern. The motif had to be a shape that would pierce through a circle. The shape I ended up choosing was a star because I thought it would create some interesting options.
The next step was thinking up 5 different design options for the grid. Basically, I had them all put in standing order, all upside down, opposite every square, laying on their sides with each row opposite, and finally with the 2 rows touching (the one I went with).
