Sunday sketch #168

I love half-square triangles. I often sit down with a sketch pad or EQ8 and just play with HSTs, trying to create something new or different.

I’m obsessed with creating designs around columns of HSTs. You can see examples of this in recent designs like Sunday sketch #155, #157 and #158, and in patterns like Wildwood and Heartbreaker (the original name of the pattern that became Raspberry Crush when it was published). See the columns of HSTs just stacked on top of each other? It’s such a simple motif but it can be used in so many ways. I love it!

Here’s another design based around the same principle.

Geometriquilt: Sunday sketch #168

Nothing fancy, and perhaps a bit psychedelic in terms of colour 😉 but just another excuse to create those zig-zaggy columns of HSTs. Maybe I should’ve spaced them closer together so I could’ve fit more in?!
