Sunday sketch #178

Most of the curvy designs I’ve created lately in EQ8 have some kind of internal symmetry – which, let’s face it, isn’t that unusual for me. This week’s Sunday sketch, featuring a pair of hearts, is a simple two-colour design that’s the same up as it is down.

Those curves are so voluptuous! Like a modern, geometric version of a Rubens painting or a Botero sculpture. (Hey, maybe I should add this design to my quilts-honouring-artists series!)

This design is just curved blocks, squares and large rectangles. If you could power through the 16 drunkard’s path blocks, you’d be done in no time!

The drunkard’s path shape (single or double) is now something I’m comfortable sewing – so I feel like my brain is more open to the possibility of creating designs with it. Unfortunately I still can’t draw a decent curve, so I use EQ8 to design curve-based quilts. I can’t always translate what’s in my brain to the screen, but playing around with the software can still produce some fun(ny) ideas.

The colour and the optical illusion just feel really 80s to me, although I can’t put my finger on exactly why… it reminds me of something, but I’m not sure what.

You can probably see from the hints of red along the bottom and right-hand side of this image that the design started out a bit bigger, but I cropped it. I’ll often create something in EQ8 and then decide that I like a smaller version. It might mean that a block is cut off (and that the actual construction of the quilt might take a little more effort), but I usually think about design first, construction second.

This design could be made into a quilt using a ton of drunkard’s path blocks and squares of background colour. Not technically difficult, but very repetitive!

A quick and simple curvy design.

You could colour this in different ways to make it look quite different. The blues make it feel quite water-y to me, a bit oceanic.

This would be easy to make into an actual quilt: it’s just drunkard’s path blocks and rectangles. Grouped into threes to make a block, then repeated in a 4 x 4 layout.
