My two favorite Quilt Design a Day (QDAD) designs from July:
Sometimes it feels like a design comes together without much work. This was one of them.
Sunset, 3 July QDAD design
I tried to copy the shape of a fold out chair from the spark image. Then played around with placement and orientation.
Tilted, 28 July QDAD design
My two least successful designs from July:
The spark image for this was a piece of ice. I tried to pull out the shapes from the ice. This was so hard.
Ice Block, 22 July QDAD design
My aim was making these circles look like cut outs. I have a really hard time achieving this effect. About once a month I try, each time gets a bit better, but I haven’t really found my stride yet.
Looking Through, 6 July QDAD design
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.
July’s inspiration are these posts holding a tree upright.
My first design directly copies the shape of the posts.
The second design is inspired from the barbed wire holding the posts together. I played around with the background color and loved how this looked with the “barbed wire” blending into the background.
Third design came from playing around with the negative space, a triangle.
