September QDAD Round-up

My two favorite Quilt Design a Day (QDAD) designs from September:

What I love about this design is that it goes from neatly stacked to unraveling.

The random length of color spokes just worked.

My two least successful designs from September:

I want to redo the colors on this one. I think it would look better with a white background. I’d also like to experiment with the thickness of the background crosshatching to see what emerges.

Crossed Leaves, 7 September QDAD design

This design ended up too one-directional. Though I really do love the center crosshatching.

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.

September’s inspiration is a circuit board. I spent a good portion of my summer cleaning out our work spaces and getting rid of old equipment.

Circuit Board

My first design started out as the lower left hand block. I then tiled the block, but a little differently than normal cutting off sections of the block so it looked a little more random.

The second design uses the same idea of circuits, but composed differently.

My final design ended up looking like watermelons, but I kind of like the ode to summer.
