Krishna Chavda! The judges loved the subtle integration of the actual street maps that define your life! And those colors! Talk about bright, cheerful, inviting…they were a hit! We can imagine both your prints in endless colorways, capturing the interest of lots of quilters…
- Love, love, love! I love the designs, colors and inspiration. The second design works easily with the main design and I have no trouble seeing them being used in the same quilt. I can easily envision multiple projects using the prints and the solids you created. For me this was a very strong collection, but I am partial to bold, vivid colors. Excellent Job! -Madeleine
- Krishna I loved your designs for this challenge. I was inspired by the little maps of your life. Growing up in the country I could also relate to the pot holes and bumpy roads life sometimes gives us. The coloration was great and I liked the palette you chose. I would without a doubt love to use these designs in a quilt. Best wishes to you as you continue to design. -Susan
- I like the bold, warm, contemporary color palette of the first print. The tightly packed circles create a nice secondary pattern of negative space. It is a good variation on a current trend of large scale circle prints. You made it unique by putting the map designs in the circles, varying the map and the color. Nice! Now the viewer could be looking through a purple mesh. I love the dark purple. It calms down the hot yellow/orange/reds. Your first print is one of my favorites in this challenge. -Linda
- Your primary print circumnavigate is really awesome. The colors are perfect. -Ellen
This was an incredibly tough round of competition to judge. All the designs were top notch, and it was exciting to get to know the designers a bit more! Unfortunately one person does have to go home, and we are sad to say goodbye to Emelia Haglund today.
Not only was it a close race in terms of judging, but the readers were torn too. Congratulations to Tammie Bennett for winning this month’s Reader’s Choice Award with her bright, fun designs!
Check back throughout the week as the judges share their remarks on this challenge. Also, TPB will be at Quilt Market in Kansas City this week! Check our Facebook page for updates from the event! And Friday May 18th the Fourth Design Challenge will be revealed…
