Sunday sketch #358

This week’s sketch is one of those rare designs that I’m not entirely sure how to construct. But it’s still cute enough to share!

I’ve treated the alternating crosses like two different layers overlapping each other, and coloured them accordingly. That presents lots of opportunities for different palettes.

All the crosses could be coloured the same, of course. And the circles don’t necessarily need to be completely filled.

But filling the circles makes them more prominent, changing the overall feel of the design.

This week’s sketch is made up of circles (comprising 8 sectors of equal size) and squares. I really don’t know how I’d make this one. How would you join the sectors to the adjacent cross pieces? I guess you’d have to use templates and probably partial seams? It might be easier for hand-piecers rather than for machine-piecers? Part of me wants to try it just to see if it’s possible (which I’m sure it is), but the other part of me knows I have many more (easier) sketches to make first 🙂
