Ann’s Album Q ‘n’ A 12, 13, 14 from Virtual Quilter

Love the first one today!

These designs have narrow sashing, but not always in a contrast colour. In the first one there is a slight contrast around the corner blocks, the one above has sashing in the background colour.

You can also have different colour fabric backgrounds for some blocks.

Bush Garland 3, 4 from Virtual Quilter

These blocks were first drawn with pencils on butcher’s paper, then transferred to Electric Quilt 5 … and I still like them.

Australia has some weird and wonderful native flowers, with lots of colour.

Bubbles 6, 7, 8 from Virtual Quilter

I wondered what I could do if I was ever silly enough to accumulate a large box of small, circular scraps, so started playing with the idea in Electric Quilt.

I started just scattering them around, then thought I could follow lines … like the lines of Double Wedding Ring.

Looks good to me!

I suspect that the many variations possible with String of Beads. I must remember that when we have a rainy day, and no shopping to do, no appointments to go to, or even visits to family and friends which cannot be put off until the weather is ...

White on White Gold 16 from Virtual Quilter

About to hit the road for a couple of nights away, so just one design, but that is all I promise anyway!

However, I have made the decision to share more most days from now on … if there is time!

Ferns and Flora 14, 15, 16 from Virtual Quilter

Today’s designs are leaning towards traditional, which is the style I like, but I like original designs, regardless of their style.

In this project file I like the way the blocks create lines and shapes within the overal design.

We are enjoying some cooler weather for a few days, hopefully enough to allow firefighters to get on top of fires around Australia.

Christmas Weddings 15, 16 from Virtual Quilter

Life doesn’t usually get boring at this time of year, but how about throwing a wedding into the timetable.

At least Christmas and weddings share bells!

Tangled String of Beads 29 from Virtual Quilter

Love it!

Please note, the daily virtual quilt designs will appear as usual over the next week, but that is because WordPress allows me to schedule ahead. In real life we have visitors coming, going, returning, and sitting around eating, talking and laughing. I will return to what I call normal sometime next week!

Floral Wedding Ring OP 31 from Virtual Quilter

Love it!

Iprefer applique to piecing, so something like this would be my choice for a real Double Wedding Ring quilt.

This project file has no new designs in waiting, and I am trying to decide how to quilt these designs. I would start by outlining applique, but would the blank spaces look better with similar quilted shapes, or use the more traditional pieced version as the basis for quilting?

Textile Inspiration White Out 15 from Virtual Quilter

Love this.

I would never have thought of using floral applique block designs without also using colours. I am not sure how I managed to remove all the colours from a quilt top, but I rather liked the effect, and I have one of these on my list of quilts I want to make. Hardest part will be choosing the background colour!
