A Spoonful of Christmas 21, 22 from Virtual Quilter

Love the first design for today.

I wasn’t happy with the way my day started … no internet, so today’s post is rather late, but I had plenty of time to play with quilt designs while I tried to work out what was wrong, and wonder if it was something I did, or the internet in general. Still don’t really know, but I am attached to the web again.

Designs like these would make it really worthwhile to make the bed every morning!

Fiddlebobs for Christmas 1, 2 from Virtual Quilter

New project file, with new fabrics in new colours, and the original blocks which are being modified, but starting with just fabric colour changes.

I think I would like to make one of them, but cannot decide if I would put it on a bed, on a table, or a wall!

Daze of Christmas 25, 26 from Virtual Quilter

I love it!

Love the way the stars near the corners are framed … a nice contrast to the other blocks.

Christmas is approaching … a group of quilters yesterday spent more time discussing Christmas shopping than fabric shopping!

Christmas Patch Play 13, 14 from Virtual Quilter

Very understated Christmas quilt, or a quilt that could be used all year round.

Still understated, but what a lot of space for some spectacular quilting!

Annie Clover’s Christmas Quilts 17, 18 from Virtual Quilter

Traditional Christmas Colours, but if they are favourite colours these could be used all year round.

Love the outer blocks in the second design!

Gingerbread Christmas 29, 30 from Virtual Quilter

My favourite sort of gingerbread … no messy kitchen, no crumbs!

To be honest, I love gingerbread, but dislike cooking and cleaning.

However, all the cutters required to make the gingerbread would make great Christmas Tree decorations.

Pieced Trees 1, 2 from Virtual Quilter

Christmas trees are being brought home, or brought out of storage, and lights and decorations added around the world, reminding us that it is the season to be jolly.

From now until Boxing day I will be sharing quilt designs with a strong Christmas flavour, or simply in the red, white and green I prefer for my Christmas decorations.

I love the second one.

Bendigo Laceworks 5, 6 from Virtual Quilter

I love old buildings with wrought iron lace around the roof line and the veranda. Bendigo is one place to see a great collection. The colours I have used in this series represent the fertile soil around Bendigo, and other areas where mining was important in the early settlement period, and the farming communities which replaced the miners.

My favourite today is the second design.

Wedding Fans 55, 56 from Virtual Quilter

Notice the way the Wedding Ring blocks have rounded out the fan blocks … very interesting.

In the second design I love the tips of the fan blocks showing around the edge, caused by all the blocks being on point.

Cathedral Window 27, 28 from Virtual Quilter

I love stained glass windows and would love to be able to create my own. In the meantime, I can play with designs for fabric versions.

Love the second design.

Desert Flora 17, 18 from Virtual Quilter

Sturt Desert Peas grow in deserts, and appear after rain to form a mat of foliage with the red flowers sitting well above the foliage. I have had them grow in my garden once, though my Mother had them grow every year in a bit of dirt held in place with an old tyre. We were not allowed to play in that little patch of dirt so just as well we had a whole farm to play in!

Love the second design … a garden bed I can only dream about!

Deena’s Delight 5, 6 from Virtual Quilter

Very dainty and feminine!

Very busy, but with a little room for quilting to share the limelight, and not all of them have been used yet. I need to spend a little bit of time concentrating on the quilting designs.

Red and White Applique 5, 6 from Virtual Quilter

Red and white together looks stunning, but not something I would like in my bedroom. My favourite design today is the first one.

However, a lot of sporting fans barrack for teams who wear red and white, so there may be a lot of people who would love a red and white quilt on their bed.

Fiddling with Fabric 7, 8 from Virtual Quilter

Love the first one, but love the second one more!

EQ Mods 33, 34 from Virtual Quilter

Very delicate. Quilts of this sort of colouring on a bed should have a bit sign in the room saying

DO NOT SIT ON THE BED. The blocks in this project file came from the Electric Quilt Block Library, but some of them got changed a little.

I like both of these designs.

Fiddlebobs OP 21, 22 from Virtual Quilter

Very interesting!

Very interesting, but maybe a bit too tangled up!

Brandis Street Blocks 29, 30 from Virtual Quilter

Love the design above.

Love the second design too, but in a real quilt some of the quilting motifs would be changed to filler designs … straight lines, cross hatch or stippling, and use thread matching the background for those areas, contrast thread for the remaining motifs.

Ferns and Flora 27, 28 from Virtual Quilter
