Inspiration in the Everyday

Taking photos from my everyday life and finding design inspiration in them. Inspired by my participation in the Quilt Design A Day (QDAD)  group on Facebook.

March’s inspiration is a fire hydrant.


My first design was inspired by the two side “gears”. Duplicating and rotating the basic block until I created a layout I liked.

 The second design is based off of the top of the hydrant. I started with the hexagon, then experimented with a couple of different borders to create a mini-medallion design.

Third design is a cross/plus sign design. These seem to be fairly popular right now and I wanted to do something a little unusual. I decided to play around with proportion.
