It is that time of year. At the nursery, on a mission to buy pansies, I was completely overcome by the convocation of pumpkins. Squads, platoons, battalions of pumpkins. Pumpkins from every pumpkin tribe. Large and small, smooth and bumpy, orange, green, white, striped, mottled, netted. Sitting at attention in such careful rows and groups, the differences between each group jumped out at me. The longer I looked, the more each individual pumpkin began to take on a distinct personality. It is a reminder that whenever we gather a group of similar items the differences between them become more distinct. This is an easy design tool to use, whether your artistic medium is buttons, quilt blocks in the same colors but differing prints, or....pumpkins.
