Rhythms and Reps is constructed using a panel method. Constructing a quilt with panels allows for different sized areas of a quilt to be sewn together easily. When designing a quilt that will use panels, look for the places where two areas can be sewn together into a single larger area. Then how the next area can be added. In the case of Rhythms and Reps, there are 10 panels that are sewn into 3 basic larger sections and then joined to complete the top.
Once you understand the techniques used to construct this quilt, I encourage you to play with the basic concept. Create your own repetitions within the panels. Or even create new panels. Try different color combination in each panel."
