Sunday sketch #208

This week’s sketch uses the same motif as last week’s, but with an added row of blocks and a different colour scheme.

For some reason, I prefer this design arranged vertically rather than horizontally, but of course it would work either way. And it can be coloured in a million different ways. Here are just a few examples….

These first two versions highlight the vertical lines between blocks.

That can be taken a step further by iterating through a few different colour pairings for each column of blocks. This one’s one of my favourites. I feel like the big vertical zig-zags are much more obvious in the second and fourth columns than in the others. Can you see what I mean?

Or we can use colour to ignore the delineation between the columns:

In hindsight, I think all of these designs would’ve worked better if I’d extended the blocks to the top and bottom of the quilt top, rather than having a white border all the way around. An easy fix, but not one I could be bothered going back to correct right now 🙂

And, finally, a horizontal layout just to show you what it looks like.

That design cycles through three colours from top to bottom – green, black, white – and I used six rows of shapes to ensure that the top and bottom of the quilt top both ended up being green. It’s a fairly busy, energetic design as a result! Not necessarily one of my favourites, but I still liked it enough to post.

Like last week’s design, this one’s all flying geese units and half-rectangle triangles (or triangle-in-a-square units).
