EQ Dozen + Quilting 13, 14 from Virtual Quilter

I love it!

I thought I was being smart by adding motifs everywhere in this one, but less motifs and some simple fill would work better.

Love it!

Love it!

I would like to say that I love this one too, but I hate to repeat myself too often!

Kelly’s Custom Quilts 13, 14 from Virtual Quilter

The design above uses one of the features of Electric Quilt, where a block using only squares and rectangles can be used as a quilt layout.

In this case this is how you could make a ‘wholecloth’ quilt from two different fabrics when you can’t get to the quilt shop and want to start a new project now!

I usually place pieced or applique blocks in the squares and rectangles, but this one just has quilting motifs based on applique blocks.

I love the idea … one worth playing with some more.

The second design uses a different layout, also ...

Old German Design Quilted 15, 16 from Virtual Quilter

I love playing with the pieces of one block to create new variations of the basic block. When I started playing with this design I thought it had some possibilities, but it has stretched to way more variations than I thought it would, and the more block variations there are, the more layouts of those blocks are possible.

Love the second design.

Aunt Flo’s Quilt 21, 22 from Virtual Quilter

Love, love, love the first …

… love, love love the second!

Love the first because it doesn’t have any pieced blocks, love the second because it does have pieced blocks, but they are very faded.

Beth’s Brunsvigia Quilts 9, 10 from Virtual Quilter


The leaves of my real brunsvigia are big and strappy … augers well for the flowers which I expect in 7 or eight years! (Unless I dig them up to move them again in that time frame.) It would be nice if the flowers waited for the leaves instead of appearing before any green is to be seen, but the flowers are still spectacular.

Anns Album 65, 66 from Virtual Quilter

A nice one.

I am often frustrated by the look of some colours on different computers … this project file was started on a previous computer and looked much cleaner than it does now on a new computer … perhaps I need to wash all my virtual quilts when I change computers!

Fiddlebobs OP 9, 10 from Virtual Quilter

Interesting design, and I love the name of this project file.

Love the second one!

Today’s virtual task for me is to decorate Christmas trees … the trees I was drawing for this month’s Virtual Quilt Challenge. I will share them tomorrow.

Patch Play Quilted 16, 17, 18 from Virtual Quilter

I like it!

I don’t like the cross hatching over the centre block, but I have left it there as an indication of the fill I would use in the background of all the blocks, but interrupted by the outlined applique and the quilted motifs.

I like the second one pretty much as it is, but would fill in the background spaces with cross hatching.

Love the last!

Autumn Daze Quilting 18, 19, 20 from Virtual Quilter

Love the first design today. Some piecing, some intricate, some simple applique, scrappy border, and, of course, quilting!

Love the outer border of the second design.

Love the last design too.

Patricia’s Patches OP 1, 2, 3 from Virtual Quilter

There is space for quilting, so I like it!

More space for quilting, and some quilting motifs to fill some of that space.

This project file was started to tidy up the blocks used in other Patricia’s Patches series, but I couldn’t resist playing!

White Quilting 12, 13, 14 from Virtual Quilter

Interesting design.

I like the second one, but the applique border is too wide.

I like this one … always like wholecloth quilts, though i would choose a nicer background fabric.

I often use uninteresting, dull or plain boring fabrics when I want the design to be the feature, not the background, and this project file is one of those times when the design is way more important than the fabric in the background. What colour would you use in these designs?

EQ Album OP 40, 41, 42 from Virtual Quilter

First design is a bit dark, but I like it.

Very interesting. The lighter centre is nice, but the red blocks make it pop.

I would say that all three of these designs are anything but boring.

EQ Album + 44, 45, 46 from Virtual Quilter


The cat finds it interesting, I think the centre should have been lighter … about the colour of the cat.

New colours, but I do like the lighter centre in this one!

Looks like the cat got is a bit miffed about the new colourway and left the site!

After Pompeii OP 27, 28 from Virtual Quilter

Nowhere near as busy and I love the second one … some open spaces for quilting to shine!

Wedding Fans OP 51, 52 from Virtual Quilter

Interesting bed topper.

Like the second one … and big enough for a queen size bed.
