Sunday sketch #229

I was inspired to play with a kite block recently, and discovered that it can be used to create a million different designs!

I only played with a handful of the usual colours, but even with a limited palette, the design variations seemed endless.

And a zig-zaggy one to end on! I love how the right shading can make this design look a bit 3D.

All these designs are just a grid of kite blocks on repeat, with the ‘kite’ pointing in different directions and coloured differently. I’d probably use paper-piecing to get precise blocks, which would help to keep the long lines (created by multiple blocks) straight, with nicely matched seams. Get into a chain-piecing workflow with a bunch of printed papers, and you’d have one of these designs sewn up in no time.
