White on Bright 7, 8 from Virtual Quilter

You would need your sunglasses on anywhere near this lot, day or night.

I love the layout of the first design.

Love the second one too!

Double Wedding String of Beads 21, 22 from Virtual Quilter

As it is I would make this as a tablecloth for a large square table with room for two places on each side. No quilting involved.

However, if I was making it as a quilt there is lots of room for some wonderful quilting! I noticed as I was starting up Electric Quilt this morning that the hint was about using applique motifs as quilting motifs … now, that is a hint I should take note of!

The second design has some wide open spaces which need some quilting too.

A Holly Christmas 13, 14, 15, 16 from Virtual Quilter

One of my favourite project files for Christmas season, or any season with different shaped leaves, and different colour flowers instead of the berries … or perhaps including the berries.

Love the changing background colours.

I have just seen Christmas trees made out of holly leaves sometime in my future, like the bunches around the outside of the design above … something to play with between now and next Christmas!

Wishing you all a very happy, holy … and holly Christmas … and a wonderful new year.

It’s Almost Christmas 13, 14 from Virtual Quilter

It was the local pageant last night, and the Christmas spirit was present and correct, and it was great to see toddlers, preschoolers and school children running, jumping and dancing on the street following the parade and a visit from father Christmas.

It is starting to feel like Christmas!

Fiddlebobs OP 15 from Virtual Quilter


Love it! Intricate applique and quilting in the centre and lovely applique in the border, and other than outlining the applique pieces the only quilting in the border would be cross hatch!

String of Beads Roundabout 33, 34 from Virtual Quilter

Nice, but missing something.

That’s better.

Cathedral Window 19, 20 from Virtual Quilter

I keep thinking I should make this project file a bit brighter, or move the window to the bright side of the house, but despite it being very close to summer here Down Under, the weather is more winter than summer, and has been for over a week, so this is what I would be seeing through stained glass every day at the moment, regardless of where the windows faced!

I wonder if washing the windows would help? Probably not, as most of them have been hosed down in the last little while.

Bunch of Beads 23, 24 from Virtual Quilter

One simple applique shape … so many ways to add them to a quilt.

Love the second design today …. love the way the blocks came together to form frames around the clusters of beads on four of the blocks.

Desert Flora 7, 8 from Virtual Quilter

Interesting, but very formal arrangements of the Sturt Desert Pea.

Here is a link to some photos of the real thing.

Unfortunately, they are not the easiest plants to grow in the home garden … I put in some seeds and have a little patch smothered in easy to identify weeds … no desert peas! Before I try again I am going to find some pre-emergence spray so that I will be able to see any strange plants coming up.

After Pompeii 57, 58 from Virtual Quilter

For me this brings back memories of the day I started Virtual Quilter. A lot of virtual quilts have had their day in the spotlight since then!

The second one is different, but I like it, though the first one is my favourite.

Lovin’ Spoonful 53, 54 from Virtual Quilter

I love this project file, with designs inspired by an old teaspoon with engraving in the bowl.

Love the applique, love the quilting motifs, and I love the open spaces to which I would add a straight line grid, probably on the diagonal.

Birds in the Orchard 19, 20 from Virtual Quilter

Opened this project file and noted that I need to draw some more birds to use in it!

Won’t happen in the next week, but thought it was worth sharing a couple of designs anyway.

At least there are birds using the birdbaths.

Desert Flora 5, 6 from Virtual Quilter

I love Sturt Desert Peas, but I keep wanting to change the background to green … but am trying to resist because these flowers bloom in the desert! I suspect that I am going to change it one day, as even the desert looks green for a short space of time after rain.

Wish me luck … today I am going to plant some Sturt Desert Pea seeds and am hoping I have inherited my Mum’s green fingers, as she had these come up in a small area of dirt in an old car tyre for many years when I was ...

Textile Inspiration White Out 19, 20 from Virtual Quilter

I like the first design today, and still wonder why something which happened by accident still appeals to me so much.

I simply wanted to recolour a design and used plain old white, and saved it for future reference. I later tried blackout as well.

I love the second design.

Love the block in the centre of outer row!

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

Fiddlebob Quilt 11, 12 from Virtual Quilter

Love both of today’s designs … new block designs based on old fashioned blocks, with custom quilting motifs based on those same blocks.

I think i prefer the first design, but it is a close call!

String of Beads 13, 14 from Virtual Quilter

I love just about every String of Beads design I have ever seen, but the one above is one of the best ones.

However the one above is also a contender for entry into the favorites list., but this morning the first one is the winner.
