Starry Path Quilt Designs from Stof genoeg

Linda Franz keeps releasing new Inklingo shapes! I just can’t keep up. Not all of them are easy to draft and play with in EQ, so I am not showing designs with shapes from Willyne Hammerstein’s Millefiori books. I have … Continue reading

Virtual Challenge 1 from Virtual Quilter

Probably the first challenge is to find the time, but if you beat that challenge, here goes!


Select a block  from the

Electric Quilt Library … Classic Pieced … Antique Mosaics.


Add at least four seam lines, then play with colour placement.  If you are brave, also delete some lines, before or after you play with colour placement.


One thing to keep in mind when playing with colour is that colour gets a lot of the credit while contrast does a lot of the work.


I selected the first Antique Mosaic block, Mosaic  No 1.

Challenge 1a

The grey version from the library.

Challenge 1b

EQ Dozen + Quilting 5 from Virtual Quilter

EQ Dozen + Quilting 5

The EQ Dozen series of project files all began life in EQ5, and continue to grow in EQ8.

Fig Jam 27 from Virtual Quilter

Fig Jam 27

I spent a large amount of time since my last post playing with the new toy in my life.

I drew some applique and quilting designs, added some quilts to several folders, one of which dated back to EQ5, along with quite a few others. I also spent a bit of time browsing through some of the block libraries, and the fabric library too.

I am keeping EQ7 and EQ8 files in the same folders so I can see at a glance which ones have made the change. In theory this will stop me converting the same project files to ...

The Mickey Mouse quilt is happening! from living, quilting and stuff

Fabric is cut, blocks are stitched and on the design wall. I ended up creating a different pattern than I thought I would - two reasons:

  • The overall image was boring so I did some more playing in EQ6. I have spent over 20 hours working on the design of this Mickey Mouse Quilt

  • I needed to match my fabric cutting to the various amounts of each print that I had

I played a bit with the the order of the diagonal  squares (blue, plaid, and red). Now I am sewing the rows together... should be pretty quick ... hopefully I will ...
