Sunday sketch #126

A few of my recent Sunday sketches (see #122, #123… and even #124) have traced a thin line from one side of the page to the opposite side. Finally, I pulled out my dot pad and gel pen, and tried hand-sketching some related designs.

I think right-angled triangles – in other words, half-square triangles – are my favourite shape. I like all the movement in the above design, but I also wanted to see how these shapes would look in formation, all facing the same direction.

I like it! Big arrows pointing down, or double-headed HSTs facing up.

I might try recreating these designs in EQ8 so I can add some colour. I think there could be some interesting opportunities for transparency, too.

These designs could be translated into quilt patterns using HSTs, squares and rectangles.

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 #123

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.
