Sunday sketch #243

A fun, simple flower design to start (or end?) the week! I love a good star block, and a small tweak can often turn a star into a flower.

This is the sort of design that looks cute in a bunch of different colours. Bright colours against a light background, or more saturated colours against a darker background… they all work.

This design features many of my usual features – like symmetry and repetition. I played with it a bit more after making these versions, so expect a few more iterations in coming weeks.

These designs are made using a (modified) triangle-in-a-square block, and a bunch of squares. You could use a template or foundation paper piecing to do the triangle-in-a-square block, or even try doing it freehand, improv style. I think either way would look good.
