Lovin’ Spoonful in the Pink 13, 14 from Virtual Quilter

Love the block in the centre of outer row!

Like the second design too, but the first wins today’s vote.

White on Bright 5, 6 from Virtual Quilter

Snowflakes was my first thought when I did this one, but the yellow is the right colour to melt the snowflakes very quickly!

They could be lace rather than snowflakes!

Aunt Flo’s Quilt 25, 26 from Virtual Quilter

Lovely, and this series of designs always reminds me of Aunty Flo’s tatting.

I tried to learn how to do tatting, and tied myself in knots, and the thread, but neither me nor the thread looked anywhere near as good as her tatting!

Love both of these!

Brandis Street Blocks 5, 6 from Virtual Quilter

I like it. These designs use similar colours to the 1970s floor covering the block designs are based on, just after the 60s orange started to become unfashionable.

I love the second one, but am not happy with the way the quilting looks here. Perhaps my virtual thread is too thick, or the design has too much detail.

Anita’s Q’n’A 19, 20 from Virtual Quilter


The first one is lovely, the second one is absolutely beautiful, in my never humble opinion.

A Spoonful of Sugar 3, 4 from Virtual Quilter

I don’t like this design, but I do love it!

This project file is simply a recolouring of the Lovin’ Spoonful blocks, along with a few blocks getting modified slightly.

Love the second one even more!

Lovin’ Spoonful 49, 50 from Virtual Quilter

Love the first design I am sharing today.

Love the second one more … still hard to believe all these designs are inspired by an engraving on an antique spoon!

Autumn Daze Quilting 21 from Virtual Quilter

Another Aussie autumn coloured quilt … crop stubble in paddocks, dull green tree foliage covered in dust, blue skies, and in real life I can feel the cooler breezes.

Not too sure which one I like the most, maybe the second if I added another solid border, but not too wide.

Lovin’ Spoonful Reprise 1, 2 from Virtual Quilter

I have been playing with the colour scheme of one of my favourite series of blocks. I love them, hope you do too.

Change of border, now I can’t make up my mind which colour I like!

A Whiter Shade of Pale 27, 28 from Virtual Quilter

A very restful design … which is my excuse for not using the background fabric in the corners … I must have had my eyes closed!

Still blank corners, and I quilted over the cat!

White on Bright 2, 3, 4 from Virtual Quilter

Yellow would not be my first choice of background colour, though I like the way it looks. these designs would look OK printed out about 3 or four inches square, laminated and hu ng on a Christmas tree … one of many uses I have found for Electric Quilt over the years.

I like the extra bit of quilting added to the second, and I would fill in the blank spaces with some straight line quilting in a thread to match the background fabric.

Love the last one!

Gran’s New Beads 9, 10 from Virtual Quilter

Love this one!

Happy New Year … and as this year gets underway I am about to start some new virtual projects, using the blocks I have been sorting during the last year.

First though, we are still catching up with family and friends we have not seen for a long time!

I started playing with these new blocks last year, and couldn’t wait to start sharing them, but there are a few virtual quilt designs still to share, and a lot more to find in future play sessions.

A Spoonful of Christmas OP 4, 5, 6 from Virtual Quilter


Nive, but a bit busy for my taste. Adding sashing might help.

Busy, but I like it anyway. In a real quilt I would use a softer thread colour for the quilting which would take away a lot of the busyness in these designs.

Old German Christmas 13, 14 from Virtual Quilter

One of the things I have always loved about designing and making quilts is being able to change the colour scheme to suit the occasion, season, or the colour scheme of the room the item is destined to be used in. In particular, I love adding red, white and green, with touches of gold, to add a touch of Christmas.

And I love that even the cat on the quilt can be colour matched!

Red and Green 35, 36 from Virtual Quilter

At long last my home decor is starting to turn red and green, with touches of gold, as trees, swags and wall hangings are escaping from storage.

Love the second design … mainly because there is room for quilting to shine around the applique blocks.

Tangled Irish Chain Apps 10, 11, 12 from Virtual Quilter

Love the first design for today.

Love, love, love the second one!

Must be some Irish blood in my veins, though if that is the case I should have used shamrocks for the applique! And the quilting.

Love the last one too … or three!

Fiddlebobs OP 11, 12 from Virtual Quilter

Love this series of designs, and these two are good examples of the standard.

I am not even going to try to pick a favourite today, but you are welcome to make a pick!

Lovin’ Spoonfull in the Pink 10, 11, 12 from Virtual Quilter

A bright version of Lovin’ Spoonful, a contrast to the original colours.

Love the second design, and would like it in most colourways I can think of.

Love the third, but I think my favourite of these three is the middle one.
