Quilt Design A Day

QDAD DESIGN001_cropCheck out the inspiration photo and palette at design seeds.

I watched Anne Sullivan’s webinar through the Modern Quilt Guild explaining the concept of Quilt Design a Day and took to heart her reassurance that one can participate without necessarily using a computer program to do it.  Although that is something I also do plan to look into!

This was done in two stages

  1. outline the pieces on quad ruled paper
  2. trace over onto sketchbook paper and colour

Starting a list of ‘missing colours’ to pick up either markers or perhaps watercolour pencils whenever I’m in an art supply store.  This palette also has a light cream that I don’t have anything close to, a very low volume colour.

The colouring was done with oil pastels.  The blues and gray reproduced well in the scan but the lilac around the gray in the centre portal is disappointing.
