Sunday sketch #165

A pretty basic design this week, made more interesting by the way it’s coloured.

(And yep, it’s my usual palette of orange, hot pink and yellow!)

I keep trying to find new colour palettes to play with, but I usually end up using at least a few of my favourite colours – like dark blue and light pink – and slotting in something new (like that green).

Isn’t that a lovely mix of colours?

You can also flip this design so that the cross-quilt colour is light instead of dark. I switched the dark blue and white:

Suddenly those shapes seem to come to the foreground, like a layer of lace laid over the top. And the colours themselves seem more interrupted. I think I prefer the darker version!

I also think this design could look pretty cool on point – just angle your head 45 degrees in either direction, and you’ll see what I mean.

This quilt design would be easy to make into an actual quilt: it’s all just half-square triangles and flying geese. Maybe a square-in-a-square to save a bit of time and a few seams.
