EQ Mods OP 18, 19, 20 from Virtual Quilter

I like the first design for today. Almost too busy, but with soft contrasts compared to most quilts, and most art work of any kind.

I like the second one too.

Interesting use of colour and contrast placement in the third design too.

All blocks are from the Electric Quilt block library with some very basic modifications, so if you have EQ you could reproduce these designs.

EQ Mods 29, 30 from Virtual Quilter

Love it!

Both these designs use blocks from the Electric Quilt library, and the quilting motifs are modifications of one of the applique blocks.

A challenge for you … copy these designs, then add your choice of fabrics.

Baker’s Dozen 37, 38 from Virtual Quilter

Something like this would look stunning in the right setting.

The second one is not as stunning, but would still look good.

Wedding Fans 49, 50 from Virtual Quilter

Love the first design today. No full Wedding Ring blocks, but enough bits for most quilters to recognize the parts.

Looking at both of these I think they would be great designs to use on a tablecloth for the table holding the wedding cake.


Something else to celebrate …. Electric Quilt is now 30 years old.

I had been quilting for quite a while before EQ was born, and it was quite a few years before I bought EQ5. I had quite a collection of block designs on paper, quite a few of them drafted and ready to use, and I ...

EQ Pearls of Wisdom + Giveaway from easypatchwork

Have you hear the news? The Electric Quilt Company is celebrating 30 years of business! It is hard to believe that another five years have gone by. It seems like just yesterday the new EQ8 version came out. What is EQ8 and the Electric Quilt Company? The EQ Company produces the leading quilt design software (EQ8) which I use just about daily in my own designs. It doesn't write the patterns for you, but it takes out all of the math guess work, cutting and dimensions are easily adapted from line drawings in the program. It even prints out ...

The Serendipity tool in Electric Quilt is the tool I use when I want to be surprised by what I design … after I select the tool and the block EQ does the twisting and turning for me. I love the design above, but not excited about the one below.

The second design has the original block in the side borders.

PS I do love that the link colour matches the quilt designs!

EQ 9x9s OP 22, 23, 24 from Virtual Quilter

Basic blocks from the Electric Quilt library, but the design looks anything but basic.

Tipping the block on point makes a big difference.

So does including narrow sashing between the blocks but using the background fabric in the blocks. Even the little shares look like a bit like stars in the dark background.

X marks the spot!

Love the second design!

Note that the block used to create the designs in the centre is featured in the border of the last design. Easy to pick it in the last design, but well hidden in the other two.

EQ users rejoice! NEW Blockbase+ and a GIVEAWAY!!! from Quilting with Kimberly


Cheeto helped us draw a winner at random (okay, we used a random generator) and the lucky winner is Judy Valentino! Congratulations, Judy!

I’ve been an avid user of Electric Quilt software since 1992. The first version I used (almost thirty years ago!) was version 3, and I’m now using the most current version which is 8. While all the versions have been amazing through the years, I’m thrilled with how version 8 is so easy to use and user-intuitive. I’m also very proud to be an EQ Artist!

For many years ...

Logs on Point in Purple 51, 52, 53, 54, 55 from Virtual Quilter

Interesting …

… but more interesting to see what happens if the centre is modified …

… then modified again.

I like the last of the modifications.

Love the one above …

… and like the last one for this weeks mid week Log Cabin retreat.

And while you are taking time out from whatever you should be doing, here is something else to look at.

EQ Dozen OP 53, 54 from Virtual Quilter

On the whole I think I like straight sets over on point most of the time, but I still love playing with on point settings.

It is worth it when you find designs like the one above!

EQ Mods OP 14, 15, 16 from Virtual Quilter

Today’s designs look rather old fashioned, but they also look warm and comfortable.

The blocks are from the Electric Quilt block library, but with some modifications.

I am sometimes surprised that I have spent so much time making quilts that I like the look of to put on a bed, and then we spend most of the time in the bedroom in the dark with eyes closed. However, I love seeing a crumpled quilt on a bed which has kept somebody warm and comfortable overnight, and enjoy making the bed a lot more if there is a real quilt ...

This project file uses the Serendipity tool in Electric Quilt. Playing with this tool can be very addictive, but a lot of fun, with some very interesting results.

The block I started with for this series of designs is the one I used in the borders.

I love the second one today.

EQ Mexican Rose Quilt 21, 22 from Virtual Quilter

Very neat … I like it.

By the way, the EQ prefix in the title indicates that this project file started with a block from the Electric Quilt Block Library. Modifying blocks from the library is a great way to practice using the block drawing tools in Electric Quilt.

I like the second one too.

Sadly this is the last design in this project file, and it is now retired, though it may reappear one day with new colours, and maybe some more variations of the Mexican Rose block.

Baker’s Dozen 31, 32 from Virtual Quilter

It is not very often I use a lighter fabric in the border than the dominant fabric of the blocks in the centre.
