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.
The first option, I had as a full nested plus/cross.
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.
There are two design competitions going on at the moment, so if you want to give designing a chance it is a great idea.
- Modern Quilts Unlimited – Fresh Ideas Competition Design a Block (closes 30 September).
- Cloud 9 Cirrus Solid BOM Challenge Design a Block and it might be chosen for the BOM (Block of the Month ) (runs all year)
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.
