Sunday sketch #222

This week’s Sunday sketch is a bit of a cheat… but since I set the rules, I figure I can break them now and then 🙂

Occasionally I’ll look back over old sketches and see if I can improve them. My designing and sewing skills have developed a fair bit in the past few years, so sometimes I see new ways of doing things. That might be by colouring designs differently, finding a different method of assembly (in my mind), or repurposing a block somehow.

Geometriquilt: Sunday sketch #222-1

This design is a reworking of Sunday sketch #41, from way back in April 2017 (!). I recreated the design in Electric Quilt 8 (I did the original with pen and paper), coloured it, and arranged the blocks on point.

(Part of me wants to rework all my sketches in this green!)

I also played around with a different layout.

Geometriquilt: Sunday sketch #222-2

I thought I’d come up with an easier way of assembling the blocks too, but then realised that it would still require a Y-seam. Or maybe paper piecing would be the best method (which is what I said in April 2017!).
