Sunday sketch #311

Combining two motifs today – a curve and some sharp points.

This week’s designs started with a simple block: a circle with some internal zig-zags (similar to two adjacent half-rectangle triangle units). Here’s some alternative layouts and colourings so it’s clearer to see what I started with.

There are some interesting internal shapes in there, which you can see if you get your eye in.

I used colouring to emphasise only one side of the circle in the first design. It also works in a vertical orientation too.

This week’s designs would probably be easiest to make using paper piecing. I’d do the zig-zags first, then cut them out in a circle shape and piece that into a larger outer piece. Maybe a bit pesky, but do-able. Which is not to say that I have any plans to do it… 🙂
