Sunday sketch #225
More curves this week. I used a similar block design in Sunday sketches #203 and #204 – a drunkard’s path-like block of concentric circles. Anyway, this time I rotated the blocks randomly. And connected them to each other, or to themselves, so that the lines continue around the design. Sometimes they create enclosed shapes, other times they double back on themselves or reach dead ends.
I like the movement in designs like this. Even though it’s not a regular, repetitive design, it still adheres to several (self-imposed) rules. So, controlled chaos. The best kind! 🙂
And, of course, there’s always the inverse colourway.
This design would probably need to be made with templates and/or paper piecing, for accuracy. I’m not a big fan of foundation paper piecing – I want to love it, but it causes me no end of grief to (a) sew and (b) write patterns for. (When I lived in Ireland, I once heard someone describe Guinness as “an acquired taste that I have yet to acquire” haha – that’s foundation paper piecing for me.)
Anyway. I still love the look of this design!
