Sunday sketch #224

Some more simple curves this week. I guess this is much the same design as last week’s Sunday sketch, only coloured very differently!

Colour-blocking curves, made from four drunkard’s path units arranged into circles. There are lots of ways you can arrange the colour blocks. The design above is almost like a plaid; the design below uses the same lines but a different colour arrangement.

And, of course, you can play with the line placement as well.

Or pull some shapes to the foreground while pushing others to the background. In the next version of this design, I introduced white squares by colouring the curvy diamonds in yellow and grey.

And then played around with other background shapes, to emphasise different features. Now there are white corner curves, half-circles and even a full circle, all created by colouring their background shapes.

This design could be made into a quilt pattern using just drunkard’s path units. You could make nice large curves – 6″ drunkard’s path units would make 12″ circles, which would make a 48″ square quilt using this design. You could make it even bigger by adding blocks or by scaling up the curves (and the bigger they go, the easier they’d be to sew!). So much potential in such a simple design.
