Sunday sketch #210

The logical progression from last week’s Sunday sketch was to flip the design around, so that the curves are on the inside and the sharp edges are on the outside.

Geometriquilt: Sunday sketch #210-1

I mentioned last week that I’ve been playing with pale colours in EQ8 to try and recreate a scrappy, low-volume look. I don’t like using prints in EQ8 – they’re just a bit too much for my brain to handle 🙂 But I love the look of scrappy quilts so I’m pleased to have found a design compromise.

I tried this approach in a few colour palettes. Warm tones, which makes the design look very sunny (literally)!

And some paler tones too.

Of course, a quilt made from this design doesn’t need to be scrappy. There are other ways of using colour to define the different elements, such as highlighting those squares between the blocks.

Oops, I can see one half of a flying geese unit that I didn’t colour in, at the bottom left. Argh, and another one, in the block above it! Haha I missed that when creating the design, exporting the PDF, saving the PDF as a JPEG, and cropping the JPG to use in this post. It’s funny how it can take awhile to see something so obvious. Oh well. That’s life.

Like last week’s design, this week’s Sunday sketch is made from drunkard’s path units, flying geese or half-square triangles, and squares.

    Love your designs so much and I look forward to your sketch each week. And didn’t quilters from the early days deliberately make a small error or two in their quilts? (Something to do with their belief that only god is perfect…) I’m sure that your teeny tiny colouring omission in EQ8 could be the modern day equivalent!
