Sunday sketch #173

Another variation on the same theme as last week’s sketch: folded strips.

Geometriquilt: Sunday sketch #173

I kinda wish the strips in the foreground were wider than those in the background, but I couldn’t quite get that to work out. Of course, I could just push those white vertical strips to the background, so that the thicker diagonal lines came to the foreground! Problem solved.

I tried recreating this design in EQ8 and didn’t like the way it turned out. I’m not sure if it was my colour choices or the design itself. It’s funny how some sketches just look better hand-drawn.

This design could be made into a quilt pattern using lots of half-square triangles and rectangles, or a bunch of long strips (and maybe some paper-piecing for accuracy).

I’m still stuck on this theme, so expect more of these designs in the weeks to come!
