In the latest patchwork-themed Spoonflower design challenge, I chose to showcase my recent two-tone geometric designs. At first, I thought of a simple square layout, but then became interested in something more complex. After drawing out a few layout ideas, I came upon an old drawing of mine, circa 10 to 30 years ago, and I knew it was the one. It was really messy and didn’t have a seamless repeat, so I needed to make a lot of tweaks.
The two-tone geometrics, along with the related solid colors are an excellent choice for modern quilts and they are already available at Spoonflower in the “Festive Colorful Dots and Coordinates” collection.
While filling in the various patchwork areas, I took the approach of creating an abstract painting, with an area of warmer color concentration surrounded by cooler colors. The result has a feeling of refracted light or “abstract expressionism meets patchwork” – a sunburst area surrounded by cooler tones.
For the best look on various home decor items, this design will be made available in a few scales.
