I love the second design.

Floral Wedding 55, 56 from Virtual Quilter

Very pretty.

Love the second design, though I think I would tone down the colouring in the applique blocks in the corners if I was cutting up fabric to make this one.

Lovin’ Spoonful in the Pink 17, 18 from Virtual Quilter

Regimental was the word that popped into my head when I looked at the design above, but then I thought that these were not great colours for any regiment to be wearing anywhere but on a parade ground.

Nothing regimental about the colouring now … very dainty!

Fig Jam 37, 38 from Virtual Quilter

I have loved playing with this project file, and modifying the blocks to fit crazy ideas.

I think this project has served it’s purpose, and I certainly can not see anybody, including me, want to have fig jam all over a bed, so now i have shared all the designs the project file is going into retirement, though a little idea is trying to break through concerning a wall hanging to go in the kitchen where I make my fig jam.

Or perhaps a tablecloth!

I did say the project file is going into retirement, not the bin!

Dainty.

A little bit more colour, but still dainty.

Fiddlebob Quilt 17, 18 from Virtual Quilter

Very interesting design with a lot to like about it, including the quilting motif.

I love the central part of the second design, but not really impressed with the outer corners.

Ann’s Album 79, 80 from Virtual Quilter

Interesting design.

Not as interesting, but I like the traditional feel about it.

White on Bright 9, 10 from Virtual Quilter

Something to brighten up the day, and drop a hint to those in charge of the weather that spring has sprung, and we expect a sunny day or tow before the end of the month.

These designs would save a lot of anguish about what fabric choice. First select white, then grab a darker colour!

The local sporting colours where I live now are red and white, my home team when I was growing up wore blue and white, my Dad’s favourite state team was black and white, it would depend on who I was making the quilt for.

Tiled Applications 9 from Virtual Quilter

Dainty and subdued, nice choice for a restful look in a bedroom.

I like the second design best of these two.

I would really like to change the title of this project file, but have no idea what to change it to. All suggestions will be considered.

EQ Dozen + Quilting 23, 24 from Virtual Quilter

Oh, so pretty!

I would like to make it a little more interesting to make a real version … there are too many of those five petal flowers … though I don’t mind the quilted only ones.

Would be more interesting to make but a bit too busy for my liking.

Petal Power 3, 4 from Virtual Quilter

My garden features lots of pink, and lots of green … far too much as much of the green at the moment is weeds.

However, in virtual and real quilts I can limit the amount of green, and I love the results.

Less blocks, smaller quilt unless the blocks are enlarged, but still pretty.

Kelly’s Custom Quilts 33, 34 from Virtual Quilter

Oh, so dainty! Love it!

Love the second one too, partly because only the background fabric has been changes for some blocks.

Sunny Coneflowers 1, 2 from Virtual Quilter

This project file was started with a collection of blocks which needed some attention, and the block collection has grown and is now appearing in some quilt designs.

Flowers are often seen dancing in the wind, but in some of these blocks the flowers seem to be following more formal dance routines.

Brandis Street Blocks 21 from Virtual Quilter

I love this collection of blocks which were inspired by an old scrap of linoleum found at the bottom of a drawer.

A lot of the shapes could make rather nice embroidery designs as well as the applique and quilting motifs I have used them for.

Felicity Anderson Q’n’A 17, 18 from Virtual Quilter

I wonder how easy, or hard, it would be to do a really big applique block?

It could be very impressive when complete, but getting it done could create some problems.

Many more applique blocks with an interesting result, though the quilting is a bit boring, apart from hose eight quilted versions of applique blocks.

Patricia’s Patches Quilted 27, 28 from Virtual Quilter

I love the first design … sort of old fashioned but not a copy of the old styles.

Neither of today’s designs have pieced blocks, though others in the project file do.

Love the second one too.

Aussie Floral Inspiration 7, 8 from Virtual Quilter

The shapes are inspired, but the colours are not … the flowers represented in todays designs come in reds, not pink and purple.

The colours are more English cottage garden, and i had a lot of fun playing with the colours, and my hands didn’t get dirty once, unlike the real garden outside.

EQ Album OP 45, 46 from Virtual Quilter

EQ Album OP

Love the first design.

Another old project file using Electric Quilt Library files and fabrics popular in 1980s, which were reproductions of much older styles.

I am pretty sure that quilts in the original fabrics of this style did not mix up blocks like I do! I was looking for a way to use some blocks several times, but not have to make enough identical blocks for a queen size quilt .
