Star Applications 3 from Virtual Quilter

Star Applications 3

I really must change the contrast in this series … stars show up as bright lights in a dark sky, not dark spots in a light sky!

I do like the idea of applique stars instead of the usual pieced blocks though.

Anns Album 61

I love the on point border around the centre block which was totally unintentional, but I will be happy to take full credit anyway!

White on White Gold 13

The background fabric looks a little less gold than I thought it would, but I love the design. Lots of room for some creative quilting.

Beaded Blocks and Borders 25, 26 from Virtual Quilter

Beaded Blocks and Borders 25

Love the first, and I must remember to cut beads whenever I have scraps of fabric with iron on bonding added.

Beaded Blocks and Borders 26

Of course, I could also just add bonding to any large piece of fabric, especially if it is a multi coloured print, or batik.

The first design would make an interesting quilting design without the coloured bits too.

White Wedding Quilting 12

I think I am in love!

White Wedding Quilting 13

I went to a quilt exhibition yesterday, and bought fabric … and despite sharing a lot of low contrast quilt designs over the last few days, I bought greens, including some brights and darks!

Birds in the Orchard 10

I love this, but it needs to be quilted, and the big question is  … how would I quilt it?

Lots of space to fill!

Anna Karena 4 from Virtual Quilter

Anna Karena 4

I challenged myself to use blue in at least one series of virtual quilts.

I have never been a fan of blue, but often admire blue quilts … it depends on how well the colour is used, just like any other colour!

I like how this series is turning out, but I don’t think blue will replace green as my favourite colour.

Julie’s Block 13 from Virtual Quilter

Julie's Block 13

Electric Quilt allows users to use basic block designs as quilt layouts.

This is an example of a block made up of squares and triangles, with no diagonal lines.

The basket blocks are resized, and shaped, when placed in the design, and for each one I used the same block, then let EQ do the stretching.

Super Sashing 32 from Virtual Quilter

Super Sashing 32

I love it.

We all spend time trying to work out what colour goes with what … this colour scheme solves that problem! Still need contrast, but with just a dark and light, even that is easy.
