This is the last designs of the year. I have had a blast these past 6 months, and would strongly recommend having a go if you have any wish to start your designing your own quilts.
The palettes for the following designs are on the groups Facebook page.
12 December: Ice Cream Sandwiches
This is the final design I choose to post on the group…
But I was playing around with stripes before deciding on the center square.
14 December: Modern Log Cabins
I wanted to play and make a modern log cabin version with this vibrant color palette.
This is the same block as a repeat which may be interesting if I change the colors around a bit (reducing the repeatability).
15 December: Winter looking outside in
This design was inspired by the color palette photo of the day. I loved the shapes in the window, the snow covered ledge and frame.
17 December: Luis Sacilotto Inspired
With this very green palette I wanted to play with a monotone stripe block, and using the shapes within shapes again.
18 December: Vases on the shelf
An abstract interpretation of vases on the shelf which was the photo inspiration for the color palette.
Next week, I am thinking of spending some time sharing some of the artists I have been inspired by of late. I love researching their works and seeing how I can use some of their ideas and build up to creating my own designs. I hope that this will be a great avenue to share.
Please Note: If you would like to make or use one of my designs, please email me (ml_wilkie(at)hotmail(dot)com) or leave a comment below. I am happy to talk with you on options and provide the relevant measurements etc. or have you test out a pattern. Also, if you use one of my designs, please use the following text to credit me the design: “Designed by Michelle Wilkie @ Factotum of Arts”.
Thank you for all the inspiring designs you’ve shared this past year! I came across your blog just a few months ago and I’m really happy I did!
I wish you and your family a Very Happy 2015!
I just love all these designs you’ve come up with this year! I can really see how many of them would come alive in fabric…..
Love the stripes with stars with the fabrics, it adds a whole new interest to it! Also love the winter looking outside
