Sunday sketch #245

I used the same triangle-in-a-square block in the last two weeks’ designs, and here it is again. (Unlike the classic triangle-in-a-square block, the base of the triangle in this block doesn’t span the width of the square; it’s half as wide here.)

This shape is so versatile. I made scads of versions by rotating it, tiling it in different ways, reversing the colourway, and generally just playing around with it.

The above version started a bit like the one below (more or less), but I thought it would be fun to extend the lines up to the border of the page.

The block works well in asymmetric as well as symmetric designs. This next one’s probably my favourite, to be honest. I might try making this one – maybe as a mini or at least a smaller quilt. And maybe even in this colourway – I really like this blue and black (well, dark grey) combo.

As with Sunday sketches #243 and #244, this week’s designs would probably be easiest to make using paper-piecing to make the triangle-in-a-square blocks.
