An exercise in fabric design using variations of a single element and a restricted palette. For the design element I started with two simple gears, then used a quarter or half of the gear as the basic element. For the palette I picked a single hue of brown, then selected three saturation levels and four intensity levels at each saturation level. <br> <br> This collection contains designs based on two of the saturation levels. The third saturation level, as well as additional colors with the same gear design are found in the collection <a href="">"Gear Flowers"</a>. A selection of these designs, those from the 'gray' saturation level, were used to form a <a href="">one yard cheater quilt</a> which is part of the <a href="">"Gear Flowers"</a> collection.
