With all the ideas this week, the one thing that did work, was the creation of new quilt designs. They have been following nicely with several this week I would like to make.
I loved this color palette. I was watching TV and saw this sign with writing down the side which inspired this design.
I think, if I make it, I am going to make it in flame and citrus/highlight.
I loved the palette but this is not a design I will like. It was inspired by the stamen of the flower.
I decided to try to redo a couple of my favorite designs (originally posted 06 Dec 2014 and 28 July 2014 which I published the finished project on SMS 05 Dec 2014), that used circles but this time add more negative space between the circles.
I like how this turned out, it will be on my possible make list. I am likely to change the palette though… not sure if I like this masculine palette.
I am not overly keen on this palette, but I was inspired by the daily post by @designmilk (on Instagram), of this cool hanging like staircase. This is on my make list.
I think the palette will be something like this with pickle or highlight as the background.
You probably know how much I like a neutral color palette. I just started playing around with the placement of lines. I like how this works and it reminds me of road markings. This is one of my favorites this month.
I may have to make at least two versions of this as I like the negative of the above design as well.
I was inspired by a book cover my friend was reading and posted on Facebook. The secondary design/ the look from a distance is interesting. It makes the lines look slightly bent, an optical illusion.
Here is the design with more repeated blocks.
I loved the geometric shape of the fans. I was also watching TV, again, and saw a sonar-radar. This is an abstract view of the sonar-radar. This is one of my favorite designs this week (along with 2 March).
I tried using the pink as well in the design and it just did not work (in my opinion).
Hope you found some inspiration this week. I will be back tomorrow, with Blue: Colour Blog Series post (and winner’s from last month).
