Sunday sketch #140

If you’ve followed my Sunday sketches (here or on Instagram) for awhile, you’ll know that I often reuse the same shape in different orientations or arrangements. This week’s sketch uses the same shape as Sunday sketches #138 and #139 – a sort of origami chevron.

Geometriquilt: Sunday sketch #140

Because of its angles and lines, the shape nests in really interesting ways. With this design, I started at one end of the page and meandered towards the opposite edge with no real plan in mind.

The rows of shapes alternate in direction – pointing up or down – which could be highlighted using different colours or fabric combinations.

This week’s design would be slightly easier to make than last week’s, as it can be broken down into separate rows – particularly if the shapes are made using flying geese and quarter-square blocks.
