Sunday sketch #100

Can you believe I’ve made it to 100 Sunday sketches?! Almost two years of consistently posting a new quilt design, week after week… wow. Thanks for following along!

A few weeks ago, Sunday sketch #95 featured big stars enclosing the traditional sawtooth star quilt block. I like the idea of creating a traditional block almost inadvertently through the placement of other pieces in a quilt design. So I pursued that direction for awhile, and came up with this week’s criss-cross design.

Geometriquilt: Sunday sketch #100-1

Overlaid crosses create the sawtooth star in the middle of each block. There are lots of ways to colour this design to emphasise different parts.

Geometriquilt: Sunday sketch #100-2

This design would be fairly easy to translate into a quilt pattern using squares, rectangles and triangles.
