My two favorite Quilt Design a Day (QDAD) designs from January:
This was the first day of my self-challenge to design with rectangles and the spark photograph was buttons. Funny how that works. I love the simple beauty in “Line Button”. The various sizes/widths of the rectangles make this design striking.
“Windows to the Night” started out as a four-block design that I rotated around, adding the red square at the end. I remember being surprised with the final design.
My two worst designs in January:
In “Smiles” I really enjoyed the half-circles and playing around with placement and negative shape. However, it seems too busy and the colors are a bit off. (I think it’s the gray, but I’m not sure. And since I’m not so enamored with the design, I didn’t go back and play with it.)
“Monster Mouth” was interesting to work with the shapes, but it’s too harsh for me.
