Recently I revisited some half-finished sketches for new ideas. I found a design for a circle of arrows that ends up looking a bit like a wreath – I’d never quite finished it, but knew how I wanted it to look. A bit more sketching, and I was happy with the block design. Tiling the block produces a simple pattern with some circular motion.
Removing the sashing between the blocks produces a slightly tighter design, with some more interesting secondary shapes.
These 9 x 9 blocks could be made using half-square triangles, squares and rectangles.
