QDAD: Quilt Design a Day

I have just finished my first week worth of quilt design a day. It has been a blast and can be difficult depending on what the palette is or what your inspiration is for that day. It does make you look at everything, and see if something will be right for the design that day.

“Broken Society”. This design started off as just hexagons, which reminded me of a hive and society…leading to me thing of today’s society…broken.QDAD_Broken Society_13JUNE2014

Day 7: Color Palette

I loved how this color palette reminded me of earth and water colors. Anne had a great analogy of an abstract oasis so I am stealing the idea “Abstract Oasis”. This is also on my possibly make list. It is inspired by a painting at my office.

Anyway, more designs are to come, and can be seen also on Instagram.

    Yum! My absolute favourite is the Lipstick Kisses. Dead keen to do a triangle quilt one day and those colours are just gorgeous together. I especially love the pop of red, it gives it real depth.

    I love seeing all your designs in one place! You have a wonderful style; I’m really glad you joined us. 😀 I can’t pick a favorite, they’re all awesome. Good luck, your “to make” pile is going to grow pretty rapidly at this rate!!

    As I looked at each one it became my favorite, then I looked back and still liked the first ones. What a fun challenge. What software are you using? And are other people doing this too?
