Blast from the Past

I'm downsizing, going through all my stuff and getting rid of what I don't need.  I found a whole folder of work I did back in college, and this piece was among them. It's dirty and stained, but I thought it was kinda cool.

 From the information on the back, I can see that I created this piece for an assignment in my Design class back in 1973.  On the back it says "Repetition." My grade is also there. On a scale of 1-10, I got a 10 for the Design and a 9 for Execution.

I do not remember this at all. I don't know how the design came about, or any other details about the parameters of the assignment.
Here's the single block on which the whole design is based.  It looks like the block is rotated 180 degrees and the values are reversed.

I wasn't at all interested in quilts back then, but looking at this I can see why quilts would eventually get my attention. I think this would make a terrific quilt. Or fabric!  Can you imagine yards of this stuff?

Eldest son loves graphic designs like this - wall art is his first comment. Yes, I could see this interpreted in fabric .. perhaps your next career move?

Fabulous! Why not make some of it at Spoonflower?

You should turn it into a fabric at spoonflower. It would be gorgeous!

That would make such an interesting quilt design.
