Sunday sketch #103

Following on from last week, another sketch that incorporates a design element and its reverse colourway.

Geometriquilt: Sunday sketch #103-1

Black on white, or white on black? I like the fact that your eye settles on one before realising that the other’s there too.

I took this design a little further, extending those chevron-limbed arms out in both directions.

Geometriquilt: Sunday sketch #103-2

Because of the overall colour placement, the left side of this design seems to be the ‘opposite’ of the right side – but really, they’re both the same, just offset by one row. I just love this effect.

Like last week‘s design, this one could be made using half-rectangle triangles and long vertical sashing, or columns of angled strips. It would work well in solids (of course), but could also be a great way to feature one or two bold prints.
