QDAD: Quilt Design a Day (Week 10 & 11)

I had created a couple of designs, the week before last before taking a small break…so this is a combination of weeks. Here goes:

21 August: Coral Reef

I loved this picture and colors. It reminded me of my Marine Sciences paper which studied reef topology and the dynamics of wave theory.

22 August: Fenced Pastures

One of my husband’s favorite color combinations is green and yellow. Since today was our wedding anniversary and the color combination was available today…this is for him. QDAD_Crosses_22August

28 August: Cherie

This design is inspired by some dashed pillows and rugs that I have seen around in magazines this season.


29 August: Fractured

Inspired by the cliffs along the coast in Napier, New Zealand where you can see the layers of the earth and the fractures from the tectonic plates.


1 September: Pretty Little Liars

The color palette I loved on this one, which was supplied by one of our members. This design was inspired by a cardigan I had seen in my TV obsession “Pretty Little Liars”.


2 September: Divided Circle

Inspired by a Circular shelving unit currently available at the Land of Nod.


3 September: Sky Scraper

Screen Shot 2014-09-04 at 6.29.31 PM

I had this design originally in the color palette above and I did not like it at all, so this is take 2 in just black, white and grey.


That’s it, next week I am super excited as we are doing a challenge. Challenge = Use inspiration from the environment around you to inspire your design.

    Some very cool designs. That coral reef inspired one is probably my favorite. It alike a grown up, slightly pixelated version of a chevron. Or mountains 🙂
