QDAD: Quilt Design a Day (last designs of the year)

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.QDAD_IceCream_12Dec(1) QDAD_IceCream_12Dec

14 December: Modern Log Cabins
I wanted to play and make a modern log cabin version with this vibrant color palette.QDAD_16Dec

This is the same block as a repeat which may be interesting if I change the colors around a bit (reducing the repeatability).QDAD_16Dec(1)

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”.

    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…..
