Do you remember my logo mini quilt from back in September? I finished it up.
I adjusted the curves on the R and P so they were squatter. I did this gradually so as not to create a point in the curve. (Though, seeing this picture, it looks like I went a bit too far with the P.)
I trimmed the borders slightly so the mini is a square.
For the quilting, I outlined the letters, and did straight-lines for the border area. And I had just enough of this red and white helix fabric leftover for the binding.
Now to hang it up in my quilting room.
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.
ReUUUse It, 5 September QDAD design
The random length of color spokes just worked.
Sand Storm, 25 September QDAD design
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.
Roller Coaster Tressil, 11 September 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.
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.
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.
