Sunday sketch #5

This week: repetition of a simple block containing stars of alternating orientation. I wanted to take HSTs and HRTs a step further, combining them to create new shapes. I tried two ‘colour’ schemes: one with dark stars against a white background, and one with white stars against a dark background. I like the secondary pattern that pops up between the blocks.

Geometriquilt: Sunday Sketch #5

I didn’t start out with the intention of using both designs in one diagram; I just wanted to see what each one would look like and I was too lazy to draw it all out a second time. But now that I see them both together, I quite like the idea of transitioning from one to the other across a single quilt. I’d need to work more on making the transition smoother across the middle.
