So, remember last week’s block? (Wi-fi gone wild? 🙂 ) This week’s block is a slightly simpler version (fewer concentric circles), arranged on point, and connected to adjacent blocks in a single continuous line.
Which presents some weird and wonderful opportunities for colour play…
I love this bright green! Here’s the reverse colourway.
The dark lines just call for a circular shape in the background. I actually started with full circles before playing with the three-quarter circles in the two designs above.
Maybe that one’s a bit too busy. Plain circles work too. (I pretty much think anything in this colour works though.)
If you ignore the background circles and just focus on the dark lines, you can see that they create repetitive, interlocking jigsaw-like pieces (2 whole pieces, 4 half-pieces, and 2 quarter-pieces). Colouring the pieces in an alternating colourway reveals what I mean…
And a reverse colourway:
I think these last 2 designs look like a completely different quilt than the first set of designs. Isn’t it amazing how colour (fabric) placement makes such a huge difference?
Like last week’s designs, this week’s Sunday sketch could be made into a quilt most easily using curved templates.
