Sunday sketch #117

I think I need to make a white-on-black quilt, just to get this colour* scheme out of my system. Or maybe I just need to get better at using Preview to clean up my quilt design pics!

Geometriquilt: Sunday sketch #117

A bit of hand-sketching this week, with lots and lots of short parallel lines as filler. You can probably tell by the wonkiness of the lines where my hand got a little tired/cramped….

This design could be made into a quilt pattern using lots of long strips and a few flying geese.

* I know, I know: black and white aren’t colours 🙂

Sunday sketch #116

This week’s sketch isn’t terribly original; I’ve done something a bit similar myself, and I’m sure others have too. But I felt like I needed a design where I could play with colour a bit.

This design could be made into a quilt pattern using simple stripes, or even half-square triangles if you were feeling industrious.

Sunday sketch #115

Remember the ‘comb’ shapes from last week (and previous weeks)? Here they are again, only shorter and fatter, with some extra lines thrown in for good measure.

Geometriquilt: Sunday sketch #115-1

There are so many potential ways to connect the combs, but I opted for half-rectangle triangles. Then I decided to add some cross-hatching to see what other elements popped out.

This sketch would be easily translatable into a quilt pattern using half-rectangle triangles.
