Sunday sketch #223
I came so close to ordering fabric to make this week’s Sunday sketch. Some designs I just fall in love with, and this is one of them.
I found this design a few weeks ago when looking through old EQ8 files for inspiration. I’m not sure why I didn’t play around with it more at the time. I thought maybe I’d abandoned it because I worried it was too close to someone else’s work? So I scoured all my Pinterest boards, did a ton of searches online, and asked a few knowledgeable friends, but none of us could find this design out there. (If you have seen it before, please let me know!)
I love the bright confetti colourway, but I also love this seaglass-inspired colour palette too.
I also tried rearranging the colours to make the design more symmetrical. Normally I start with symmetry and then veer off into asymmetry, so this approach was quite novel for me! And for once, I prefer the asymmetrical versions.
I’m not ruling out making this design into a quilt, but I’ve put it on the back burner for now. In the meantime, I came up with another design that I’m more excited about. It’s always the way!
