Last week’s sketch was the start of a journey into a new design idea — almost like looking through a window. You’ll see more of where that design has taken me over the next month or so. This week, I’m still looking through rectangles to see stripes.
This time the rectangles are fatter and the colouring is reversed, but the same construction method applies. A little over half of the rectangles shown here are each a single fabric piece (I imagine them all from one fabric but you could also do a big scrappy version). The rest are made from 2 fabrics; add the required corners by overlaying a square or triangle across the rectangle piece of fabric (right sides together) and sew diagonally across. Arrange and separate with sashing, then add a border. Ta da!
