The overall design for Ripples, conceived by Christine Perrigo, starts with the traditional Robbing Peter to Pay Paul design. From there, the quilt takes a decidedly modern path as each member adds their own playful spin to each block.
The quilt was designed to display varying elements of scale. From across the room, the viewer sees the bold overall design of concentric ripples. A little closer, it becomes clear that the composition of the quilt is made up of deconstructed Robbing Peter to Pay Paul blocks. From arms’ length, the small details pieced into each block become apparent.
The concept also goes deeper than just the visual effect of ripples. It speaks to the way that individuals can magnify the impact of their work by joining together.
