Sunday sketch #109

I’ve been trying to limit my use of EQ8 to design features that I can’t manage easily with hand-sketching: namely, curves and colour. This week’s design combines these features to create one of my favourite things: flowers!

Geometriquilt: Sunday sketch #109

I love these retro flowers. I tried a lot of different colour combinations, but the yellow just popped. This warm yellow makes me so happy.

This design could be made into a quilt using the drunkard’s path template. Each block (comprising most of a single flower) is 12 drunkard’s path units and 4 solid squares (although you could make 4 drunkard’s path units in a single colour, just to get that lovely curved seam).
