QDAD: Quilt Design a Day (week 13)

I decided to create my own theme this week, Plus designs. I loved the focus on a single topic and will definitely try and do a few more of these.

Using a repeatable block design, with solids that represent the above colors.

I also decided to try this one in prints. I like how the differences between the solid vs. print a lot with this design.

This is one of my favorite designs this week. I love the color palette and the simplicity of the design.

Playing around with a repeatable block made up of the plus and arrows within a cross/plus layout. My favorite landed up being the second option which looks like a wonky totem.QDAD_Crossquilt3_18September_tower

The first option, I had as a full nested plus/cross.QDAD_Crossquilt3_18September

Thi s is the second design that I love this week. It was inspired by a game of Tic Tac Toe (Naughts and Crosses). The line for the two colored background represents the winning line.QDAD_TicTacToe_19September

There are two design competitions going on at the moment, so if you want to give designing a chance it is a great idea.

If you want to check out more of my QDAD designs you can find them here. Stay tuned for next week where I focus on a minimalism study using only red, white and black.

    I remember being so relieved when that pumpkin and gourds palette showed up. 🙂 Finally, a palette I liked! I love when you play with adding fabrics mostly because it IS so different. I’ve been designing with solids for so long, I have this QDAD-induced barrier to prints now a days. 🙂 So I love that you play with prints to remind me that oh yeah, those really work too! lol
    Beautiful designs, as always. You really have such a wonderful style.

    I particularly like the two palettes with greens and purples. I’ll never, ever, ever switch over to using just solids, I love my prints too much, but for me half the fun is finding the right print in the right colour.
