EQ Album OP 39 from Virtual Quilter

Imagine a cold day in a big, overdecorated and drafty country house … and being able to snuggle up under a quilt like this.

I think it looks a bit like an antique … and it hasn’t even been made yet. But then I sometimes let my imagination get away from me a times.

Luckily our house doesn’t get that cold, but I love the design!

Bows and Bouquets 1 from Virtual Quilter

I have been playing with some blocks for over a week, trying to sort them out into some order, but spending more time drawing and modifying blocks than sorting them.

Anyway, I reached a point when I decided it was time to see if the blocks would work in a quilt. One of the hardest tasks was coming up with a title, but I think Bows and Bouquets works.

I love it!

Now I can go back to sorting and saving them in my block library.

EQ Album 58 from Virtual Quilter

Part of me thinks this is a bit dull, but it is also restful, and a touch masculine. I think I would lose the blue if I was to make something from this series, and lighten the background a little.

This series would have been created in EQ5, when historical prints and colours were preferred. Looking at some of the fabric available now I am thinking that maybe we are going back to the future!

Autumn Daze Quilting 15 from Virtual Quilter

Love it.

Specially love the illusion of the light weight diamond half hidden by the heavyweight square.

Fig Jam 33 from Virtual Quilter

The fig tree looks a bit tired at the end of a long, hot summer, but several buckets of fruit were shared with others after I made more than enough for my own use.

A Whiter Shade on Antique Gold 16 from Virtual Quilter

I like it, but the design I shared yesterday is more to my taste, and something like that could well become my next UFO!

Textile Inspiration White Out 13 from Virtual Quilter

I love it!

I have a healthy stash of fabrics of all colours, but I am thinking that my next project start just might be white, or close to white, on a muted gold background.

Patricia’s Patches Quilted 9 from Virtual Quilter

Love it, but still haven’t worked out why the quilting lines are smudged.

Perhaps I marked the quilt top with gold coloured pencils!

Garden Festival 13 from Virtual Quilter

If only the summer would go away so my garden can grow, without being sunburned every day!

Then maybe my real garden would look as neat and tidy as this virtual design.

Fantasy Floral Quilts 13, 14 from Virtual Quilter

Like it, but think I have improved it for you.

Love it.

Note that the borders in the body of the quilt have created a soft border, rather than the more defined border around the edge.

For those following the Virtual Quilt Challenges, there is a new challenge today, and today’s virtual quilts illustrate how I alter blocks to make them work differently.

Brooksea 12 from Virtual Quilter

I love it!

This design uses an example of the way I modify blocks. The block in the corner had had pieces removed to create the alternative block used next to it.

Ferns and Flora 13 from Virtual Quilter

Mmm! A project file which needs some quilting in those open spaces.

Patched, Pieced and Pretty 1 from Virtual Quilter

Found after being lost for quite some time in among some files from the computer before last!

I think it is worth bringing it out into the open.

Anns Album 62 from Virtual Quilter

I am amazed how many designs can be created from any given set of blocks. Even just two blocks can be alternated or used in rounds. There are still more designs in this project file, created from 10 blocks, most of which have been modified a few times.

I like the restful colours in this project file.

Hexie Logs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 from Virtual Quilter

Log Cabin blocks don’t have to be square.

I started this project file in 2015, and it didn’t get very far at all before I put it away and forgot about it.

I stopped with the two designs above, then restarted sometime later and added a few more designs.

Yesterday I opened it up and started playing. I found enough designs to share for this weeks Log Cabin Retreat, and then played some more to use later.

I thought a touch of applique might be interesting … now I am starting to fall in love.

I am probably going ...

EQ and Me 35 from Virtual Quilter

EQ and me are back together again after a break, so this project file seemed like an appropriate file to open. We have been back for a few days, but it is taking a while to settle down into a routine … that sounds like a good excuse, anyway!
