Sunday sketch #262

More simple stripes this week. I haven’t finished exploring this idea, but I thought I’d post my progress thus far.

I like those shapes that emerge from between the hash blocks (hopefully that phrase doesn’t flag my blog as dodgy haha) – they’re like ghost circles or squares. Here’s the reverse colourway.

I started this with a different palette, and then expanded it a bit.

 

And even introduced some blocks in a reverse colourway.

 

It feels a bit busy when the blocks contain both dark and light stripes; the design is a bit more coherent when the stripes in the coloured blocks are all dark.

I think there’s more potential with this design; it doesn’t feel quite ‘there’ yet for me. I can’t really describe what I’m looking for, but I’ll know it when I see it!

    I much prefer the reverse colour ways but without the solid squares of colour. Lots of options for letting some of those wells/ hashtags disappear….but that’s me. Minimal feels better Thanks for sharing

      I don’t love the solid squares of colour either. I think I need to try offsetting the hashtag blocks so at least some lines flow from one block to the next, but not all. I’ll keep playing…!

    My Sunday morning smile ☺️ I just love your creativity. My favourite quilt is the 4th one with the introduction of a third colour. #brilliant

      Thank you! I want to keep playing with the 3 colours to try and relieve the ‘busyness’ – it’s a bit too much for me at the moment but I feel like there must be a solution in there somewhere… 🙂
