Sunday sketch #139

I’ve been playing around with the same shape from Sunday sketch #138 – that origami-like chevron – in a few different designs. I like how it nests together in interesting ways.

Geometriquilt: Sunday sketch #139

I couldn’t figure out how to recreate this design in Electric Quilt 8 (at least, not easily), so you’ll just have to use your imagination with the hand-drawn sketch instead.

Because the chevron units are offset in this design, it might be easier to translate into a quilt pattern using a slightly different construction technique. Instead of quarter-square triangles and flying geese, it would make more sense to build the units using squares and half-square triangles, and arrange them on point. You’d also need some strips and rectangles to fill out each larger block. It’s awkward, but doable.
