the squatch pattern

squatch pattern
i created parts of this pattern when i was practicing for my red cap cards summer wrap project collection, combining the tiles in different ways, but it never looked right so i gave up on it. i'm such a novice at pattern-making (i definitely overthink it) but the red cap project compelled me to study successful patterns more closely and reflect on what makes them so pleasing to the eye. it's a lesson in proportion and even distribution of a limited color palette that i've yet to master, but after the project i decided to ditch the tiles and put the parts together in a simpler way, which already feels a bit less "off."squatch pattern detail
