    I really like your photo of this swatch. It reminds me of an hourglass. Nice work!

    What a richly textured piece!

  5. miss m Says:

    more than one repeat?

  6. zeph Says:

    It does have more than one repeat vertically – do you mean an extra repeat horizontally?

  7. missbitesalot Says:

    Panel patterns don’t need to be repeated horizontally across the swatch as it dilutes focus from the pattern. More than one repeat vertically is always nice, but on a really huge panel it can be difficult to fit all those repeats in and still be close enough to show the pattern. :)
