Part of what kept me interested in last week’s sketch is the odd perspective — on the left, the top of the zig-zags is in full view; on the right, it’s the bottom. That sort of unnatural, confusing perspective makes me look at the design again and again.
I haven’t played with perspective much yet, so this might be an area I delve into a little more. This week’s sketch is based on a quick doodle that I made of an apartment building façade in Melbourne awhile back; I found it on the back of a receipt when cleaning out my wallet recently.
I like how rotating the sketch gives an entirely new look — a new perspective — to the design:
If you were brave enough to try a Y-seam, this design could be made into a quilt pattern by combining a triangle and two right trapezoids. Otherwise, you could just use two rectangles, one half-square triangle and one 2:1 half-rectangle triangle per block.
