Ta da! I always wondered what big post I’d plan for #200, but now that it’s here, I just want to get on with another sketch*. Shall we?
I mentioned last week that I’d created a bunch of designs from a single block – the double-triangle parallelogram-in-a-rectangle block (for lack of a better name). Well, here’s another one.
This time, the blocks are arranged horizontally instead of vertically, and they use 4 colours instead of just 3. The top left of each block is always dark blue, and the bottom right is always grey; the middles change between yellow and white depending on location – creating diagonal strips of all-white or all-yellow triangles.
And playing around with colour placement can produce a very different design, with fatter diagonal stripes that emerge as secondary shapes:
Like last week, these designs would be easiest to make into quilts using paper piecing.
* Seriously though, thanks for following along with me as I share my design ideas. It’s a huge source of creativity, fun and inspiration for me, and I’m chuffed that others enjoy it too. Here’s to the next 200!
