I go through phases of playing with particular shapes, and this week it’s quarter-circles. I’d also call these drunkard’s path blocks, although I think sometimes people don’t use those terms interchangeably. Anyway…
This design actually started with a single block on repeat. Lots of stacked bowls!
Because this design is block-based, I can create loads of variations just by rotating the blocks – by 90 degrees with respect to their neighbours (as shown below left) or by 180 degrees (below right).
I can also delete bits of the blocks for a more improv-y look.
Or, going back to the first version, I can flip the alternating blocks upside down to create a bit more movement. I see little happy faces!
There’d be lots of different colouring options here too.
These designs are all quarter-circles or drunkard’s path blocks. I’ve never made those units smaller than about 4″ finished, I don’t think – I’d struggle to manipulate smaller pieces through my machine and get a nice, even, curved seam. So this probably won’t be a design I’ll make anytime soon. Still, it’s fun to play!
