Inspired by a typeset tray and blocks “Type Set Tray”.QDAD_TypeSetTray_26June2014

For today, I used both the cool and warm color palettes and played with arrow-like squares/pine-cone like design. In the cool colors it looks almost like a snowflake:

The warm color palette, I like both a neutral background and the bright background:QDAD_29JUNE2014_BirdPaletteLight QDAD_29JUNE2014_BirdPaletteBright

Inspired by a graphical print/drawing. These “Mod Crosses” are a 9 pieced block that I play with 2 colors and a neutral and their layout:

I then decided it may be even better if I use the neutral as the sashing, as well, and play more with the negative space….definitely love this one better:QDAD_30JUNE2014_modcrosses_negativespace

I loved the variety of this color palette and wanted to play with softer lines. The design is specifically one I could use appliqué with.QDAD_02July2014

This design was inspired by a backgammon game board. In this cool color palette transforms it into icicles.

Linking up with Lorna over at Sew Fresh Quilts for “Let’s Bee Social” (see button on the right).

    I love the backgammon board and the one from June 30th on white so much!! And the one on the 29th, too. 🙂 Loving seeing your designs, your aesthetic is definitely up my alley, so it’s great fun to see them show up in the group!

    the backgammon inspired design is fabulous. Could also work with shades of grey with white and black and a hint of a color to add pizazz.
