Sunday sketch #18

Like Sunday sketches #11, #12, #15 and #16, this week’s design comprises a single motif repeated in a random pattern. I love the consistency and order of these designs (which probably says a lot about me).


The arrow motif itself appeals to me, but I also love the secondary patterns that emerge in the whitespace. I purposely avoided creating any small enclosed shapes, but it would be easy to bring out diamonds or squares. I think they’d draw the eye in though, whereas I prefer letting the eye wander across the design with no specific focal point.

This is my favourite repetitive design so far. I can only imagine paper-piecing it, which I’ve never done before, but I’m going to try. I think this one’s worth the effort.
