Michele Rosenboom, textile designerMichele Rosenboom All the judges agreed that Michele’s designs were lovely and the dream catcher motif was a great interpretation of the design challenge.  The readers were in agreement since Michele also won the Reader’s Choice Award.

Judge Remarks:

  • Dramatic and jazzy, with excellent choice of motif for the secondary design.
  • I like zig zags and I love designs with circular elements in them. My own quilts use circular elements, so this really speaks to me.  I’d buy all of these if I was in a quilt shop and found bolts of them. They are lovely. You did a really nice job, Michele!
  • I really liked your take on this challenge.  Your primary pattern is really dynamic.  I feel like every time I look at it I notice another element.  I really like how you manipulated the negative space of the design with the purple swirls in the background.  Your secondary print is a really awesome fabric that I can imagine quilters buying in every colorway and using constantly…I like the visual linkages to herringbone and arrows.
  • Michele, I love your inspiration and what you did with it. You constantly amaze me with the sources of your inspiration and how you manipulate that inspiration into something completely new. You are on target with the current trends. I can see these designs working well in a wide range of products, including quilts.

Sadly this week we have to say goodbye to Krishna Chavda.  We wish her continued success in all her future design word!  We know she has the eye!

Stay tuned for thoughts from the judges this week as well as the fifth design challenge reveal on Friday!
