Quilt Design a Day
The Quilt Design a Day (QDAD) project, started by Anne Sullivan, was a challenge to design a new quilt every day based on a provided inspiration image and color palette. The Facebook group has quickly grown to over 850 members, with an average of 10 members posting new designs every day. I have participated in QDAD since its inception, and created over 300 unique designs. Many of these designs are experimental in nature, and reflect my interests in using quilts to tell stories, visualize data, and express ideas.
Some examples of quilts designed for the challenge are below:
One of my designs for Quilt Design a Day was chosen as the Modern Quilt Guild’s (MQG) April 2015 Quilt of the Month, and released as a free pattern to all members. The MQG has thousands of members in over 150 local guild chapters around the world.
