Sunday sketch #281

This week’s design is block based, but you’d be forgiven for missing that. I’ve coloured the blocks in this 5 x 5 layout fairly randomly, using only three colours.

You can probably tell that the major elements are drunkard’s path blocks, squares and rectangles. I originally started with only two colours, then added the black for some visual interest. Here’s the two-colour version of the first design:

Rotating the blocks creates new variations (on the left), as does rearranging the random colouring (on the right).

The possibilities would be endless!

These designs could be made into quilts using drunkard’s path blocks, rectangles and squares – plus some borders.
