This year I want to practice working on not-so-great designs that I’ve done; exploring how I can make them better. Hence, QDAD Redo. I’m going to go back to last year’s QDAD Round Up to choose one of the two bad ones and rework them.
For September, I choose “Roller Coaster Tressil” from September 11, 2015.
I was surprised by where I went on this redesign – pixilation. I admire the hard work and technique that goes into making pixilated quilts, but I am not naturally attracted them. That being said I really enjoyed experimenting with this form.
I like to start by identifying what part of the design I like. In this case, how the blue and red rectangles overlapped.
You can tell by these last few versions, once I like a design, I spend some time experimenting with color.
Can you see another design path to experiment with? Are you partial to one of the other designs along the way? Why?
