Sunday sketch #325

This design is a little like last week’s – check out those bow-ties hiding in the middle – and even a bit like Sunday sketch #314. It’s got the same vertical lines and those large half-square triangles creating diagonal lines.

I’ve coloured the shapes in a plaid-ish way, but that still leaves lots of room for variation. Changing up the colours also affects what secondary shapes emerge – although I see large diamonds in most of these designs.

      

This next version demonstrates the Bezold effect – the name of which I didn’t know until quilter Carolina Oneto commented on a recent Instagram post of mine. I guess it’s an effect I use often!

And here’s a different colourway. I realise as I look at this one that there’s a slight mistake in my colouring – can you see it? I didn’t colour the hot orange shapes in the same way as the others; I’ve missed filling in the small HSTs at the very tips of the shapes. I made the same mistake in the first version, too. Ah well!

This week’s designs could be made into quilts using large and small HSTs, plus small squares (next to the small HSTs). As there’s a limited palette and repeated shapes, it would suit chain-piecing (as well as methods that make more than one HST at a time).
