Sunday sketch #261

You can probably see how this design evolved from Sunday sketches #259 and #260 – a simple shape with strips sticking out. In this case, the shape is a teardrop-like combo of a half-square triangle and a quarter-circle, and the strips that extend from it create its mirror image.

And, like some of the designs from the past 2 weeks, it’s got sashing. I’ve used the same width of sashing as the width of the other strips. It’s a nice way of separating those background colours and keeping the whole design from feeling too crowded. And it’s narrow enough to let those diagonal lines – from one half-square triangle to the adjacent one – extend across the quilt design without interruption.
