Sunday sketch #203

I’ve been working on a magazine quilt that uses thick lines to delineate a shape, and it got me thinking about how else I could use similar lines. I’ve also been inspired by Steph Skardal‘s progress on lots of nested-curve foundation paper-piecing. I’ve had an idea in my head for awhile that involves curves and stripes, but for some reason I could never get it quite right. Finally the stars aligned and I managed to download what was in my head into EQ8 and onto the page.

This week’s design is just a simple block on repeat. There are a million and one ways to arrange this block, but I quite liked this one!

As much as I love two-colour designs, it’s still fun to try a multicolour palette. As usual, I love the combination of a fiery red and a hot pink, along with bold black lines.

I love how the horizontal lines draw your eye across this design too. Lots of movement!

And the reverse colour way, with a black background and white foreground, is also striking (although perhaps not as much).

This design would be a great one for trying out Steph’s foundation paper piecing technique. Otherwise, I think you’d need templates to get the required precision. Not necessarily a quick design, but fairly straightforward!
