Sunday sketch #125

This design started out in different colours, but it felt a bit busy, so I replaced one of the colours with white. Adding some negative space really opens up the design and makes it all a bit calmer.

I really love this colour palette, although sometimes I think that rich yellow would work with anything!

It’s all squares and rectangles, so a quilt based on this design would come together really quickly.

Sunday sketch #122 followed a single line from one edge of the design to the other. I’ve created quite a few new designs using the same concept. The only difference is that instead of making the line a black stripe, I’m using it like a border separating two colours. Just like the original inspiration by Jo Delahaus, this week’s design combines straight lines and curves.

I love two-colour designs, but I can never decide on the best two colours!

This design could be translated into a quilt pattern quite easily using rectangles, squares and a few drunkard’s path blocks.

Sunday sketch #121

This week’s designs aren’t really new; they’re exactly the same as Sunday sketch #120, just coloured in differently. I’ve opted for a red and white colour scheme, because who doesn’t love a red and white quilt?!

Here’s Sunday sketch #120 recoloured:

I love how changing the colours can completely change the feel of the design!

Then I extended the same colour scheme to the edges of the design:

And reversed the colour scheme:

Maybe it’s those curved corners, but I love this one! So then I tried it without the curved diamonds in the middle:

Hmm, maybe a bit too red? I tried filling in the squares with white, to balance things out a bit:

It’s amazing how just a few minor changes can make such a big difference overall.

I think I like the first one and the middle one most. Which one’s your favourite??
