Pieced Patched and Pretty Quilted 3 from Virtual Quilter

What is not to like?

There are pieces, patches and quilting lines.

That is all I ask of a virtual quilt.

Old German Design 11 from Virtual Quilter

I like this one, and like a return of contrast after a week with little colour contrast.

A Whiter Shade of Pale 21 from Virtual Quilter

Getting the contrast right in any quilt is harder than choosing colours … low contrast would be harder, but I love this design.

White on White Gold 15 from Virtual Quilter

I haven’t used anything from the White Out collection of files, so I thought I may as well keep sharing them until mid week!

I like this one!

At first I thought it would be interesting as a whole cloth quilt with cross hatching filling in the areas not filled with quilting motifs rather than applique designs. Then I thought it looked like crochet lace added to a tablecloth … or maybe knitted lace. Or embroidery.

I think I should stay out of the sun for some time!

A Whiter Shade on Antique Gold 17 from Virtual Quilter

I think the the outer applique blocks would be a great quilting pattern!

White Quilting 11 from Virtual Quilter

I love this, despite the background fabric not being very inspiring. I was looking for something to make the quilting show clearly as a virtual quilt rather than a real quilt.

A Whiter Shade on Gold Quilted 12 from Virtual Quilter

Interesting idea … low contrast fabrics for quite complex applique designs.

Annie Clover Quilted 14 from Virtual Quilter

Birds in the Orchard 12 from Virtual Quilter

Something a bit different … I usually think of double, queen and king size beds when playing with quilt designs, but one day I added some singles to the project file I was playing with.

Beth’s Brunsvigia Quilts 4, 5 from Virtual Quilter

I like this one.

And this one too.

This is a hint of what this month’s challenge is all about … and coming to this spot in the not too distant future.

Ann’s Album OP 15 from Virtual Quilter

Pretty and dainty, room for quilting. What else does a quilt design need to be?

Border Beauties 43 from Virtual Quilter

Love the applique border … even though the blocks need a bit of a redraft to fit properly.

I also like the distorted blocks in the sashing … an idea which could fill in some time playing with a variety of blocks to see how they work in this sort of setting.

Applique Elegance 6 from Virtual Quilter

It is only virtually appliqued, but it is rather elegant.

Julie’s Block 18 from Virtual Quilter

I have drawn a lot of floral applique blocks, but I also have a collection of pieced blocks made up of squares and rectangles which Electric Quilt will turn into quilt settings at the touch of a button.

I don’t think the blocks themselves would translate into great quilts, but as custom quilt layouts they work for me … and I really should play with them more often.

By the way … look for the mistake … and count how many times I repeated the mistake!

Wattles and Waratahs 1 from Virtual Quilter

Wattles and waratahs, along with gum blossoms and banksias, are a few of the flowers found in bushland in Australia. I found this project fie while sorting block designs, and can see potential for some modifications to the blocks in the future … but I will try to concentrate on sorting blocks for now.

Some of you may have noticed that the midweek Log Cabin retreat was a day late. I scheduled a few posts and got the order wrong … hope it didn’t confuse you too much!

Now I will go back to sorting block designs.
