Sunday sketch #257

I had so much fun with last week’s Sunday sketch that I kept playing with those stacked flying geese.

This design is a single block on repeat. Each block has four quarters: two are all half-square triangles (in colour), and two are those diagonal flying geese (in dark grey). Rotating the blocks gives that nice back and forth motion.

The same blocks can also be rotated in other ways – with triangles facing towards or away from each other.

This week’s designs could be made into a quilt using half-square triangles (easy to make using the 8-at-a-time method) and flying geese units plus a few extra triangles. Or you could paper piece the geese shapes (a bit like you’d piece a pineapple blocks, but without cutting off the noses of the triangles). It’d be a great stash-buster or a lovely way to show off a bunch of coordinating prints.
