A while ago the great team behind Quilt asked me to become their creative advisor. Excited by their vision I accepted the offer. This is the icon I designed for their iPhone app, together with the in-app "Button Button" you tap to add content.

Real nice, I'll try it with a few friends ;)
Curious why you used a button for quilt?
(my Mom was a quilting freak is why I ask)
Awesome work man!
Same question as @Alan Houser! It looks lovely though.
@Alan Houser @Kyle Decker 2 reasons: A button is a simple shape, and it's very recognizable on your home screen.
great icon, and i am sure it works excellent in the ui as well!
@Tim Van Damme Gotya. I see screenshots of the actual app, and it makes more sense. I immediately thought a "Thimble" would be my first go-to, but everyone knows what buttons are for sure. :) great job.
Threads lack depth. Overall it looks really flat, shading and gradients could be more complex.
I really like the bright orange colors and textures on the button @Tim
Pretty damn good sir!
Hmm, dribbble becomes not the place where you can get some advices or critics, but the place with only "like button" (just like facebook).
I like this shot in general. Great colors and very simple but nice texture for threads. But I agree with @Martin Sorensen that it looks flat. And even threads could be more realistic and more 3D by adding tiny gradients and shadows and maybe making it not so smooth.
Sure, it's just my vision, and I think it's great when there's place for improvement.
cool. did you mind about making icon a bit more stylized? maybe more like plastic?
Here it is :) I loved your idea from sketches and then the smooth execution on the icon!
Great icon, design is superb, as usual, Tim.. But not sure I associate a button with quilting. Quilting is more of sewing of patterns together, etc... (sorry, my mom is a major quilter)
Awesome icon idea!
Very, very, nice Tim. Love it!
I will have to agree with some dudes above that it feels very flat and unrealistic and doesn't invoke any emotion.
Looks really good!!
Looks really cool.
My 2cents.. Why everything need to be very realistic? is there realism is the only word left in IOS design. Everything has some reason behind it & if its serving the reason. Great.
Guess Facebook will have to buy Quilt now.
Sorry man, but this is totally awful for me, nothing good on it, I must be honest to you.
