Sunday sketch #40

Following on from last week’s theme of layered triangles with a pop of colour:


Once again, the red triangles are placed purposefully, with their sides all aligning. The pattern is symmetrical; turning it 180 degrees will end up with the same design.

The logical next step in this series of sketches was to flip the triangles, so you see their flat bases rather than their pointy heads:


I think this design would’ve been better with the red triangles in each column touching tips – without that white space in the middle. Lesson learned.

Both designs could be made using half-square triangles and rectangles; you could also save some seams in the top design by using flying geese as well.
