Sunday sketch #145
A few weeks ago, I mentioned how much I like playing around with basic shapes like squares and triangles. Here’s another design along the same lines (pun intended!).
This one emerged from Sunday sketch #143. Sometimes when I’m redrawing a design – so that I can make minor design tweaks or recolour it – I’ll pick out certain shapes (like those central white and green squares) and draw them first, then connect them by drawing all the intervening lines. It’s a methodical and intentional approach that tends to lead to fewer mistakes.
But often, once I’ve drawn the beginning shapes, I veer off in another direction and create a new design. So even though this week’s design is related to #143… the similarities may not be so obvious.
Like many of my recent designs, this one would probably be easiest to convert to a quilt pattern by treating it as a collection of smaller units (half-square triangles and half-rectangle triangles) rather than whole blocks. It’s on point, but not offset by 45 degrees; but you could make it and trim it down to a square easily enough.
