Sometimes I get a quirky idea and just run with it.
This design started out as a mix of about 3 different blocks, until I realised that I could achieve the same result using a single block just coloured in different ways. Four concentric circles, with straight lines running horizontally and vertically through them to the edges of the block.
I set myself some other rules – I didn’t let the lines branch off from a single point, for example – but otherwise this was a fairly quick design.
As usual, I tried the reverse colourway. Actually, I think I like this one more. It’s harder to see the white border against the white of this webpage, but trust me, it’s there 🙂
This design could be made into a quilt using curves – lots of curves! And a few templates to keep things under control. I’d probably divide each block into quarters, rather than try to piece full or half circles.
