Of late I’ve really been crushing on geometric designs. There’s just something about them – especially when done in shades of one colour. They just make me want to design and sew all the things!
So when I started stalking my partner for the Schnitzel and Boo Mini Quilt swap… the geometric animal idea was sort of there in the back of my mind. I was tempted to do a bird because well, I love birds. But let’s be honest, that would have been more for me than for my partner! So I settled on a bear. So secret partner – this was designed just for you!
Here’s the block I made. Obviously I still need to make it into the mini quilt but I was a bit excited and wanted to share my progress. I used 7 different shades of blue. I think the hardest part was trying not to have the same in sections next to each other.
Don’t be surprised if you start seeing a few more geometric patterns popping up in the near future. I’m a bit addicted. But in the meantime, for those who’ve been asking for the bear pattern, I’ve listed it in my Craftsy shop!
