9 Patch ‘n’ Apps 9, 10 from Virtual Quilter

Love this one …

Love this one more!

I love making blocks merge into the background so they become part of the overall design rather than individual blocks.

10 Plus Mods OP 3 from Virtual Quilter

10 Plus Mods OP 3.JPG

I selected 10 pieced blocks, and modified some of them, some of the time for this series.

I love the border, which is basic Nine Patch blocks with the contrast placed a little differently to the way it would normally be used … and used on point just to confuse the viewer!

Red, Black and White 9 from Virtual Quilter

Red, Black and White 9

Not as simple as yesterday’s simply quilted design.

Selina Pearl 5, 6 from Virtual Quilter

Selina Pearl 5

One block, with a few seam lines missing here and there.

Much more fun than making exactly the same block over, and over, and over …

Selina Pearl 6

Love both designs.

The block was named after my Mum’s big sister.

Happy Mother’s Day.

9P in Play 43 from Virtual Quilter

9P in Play 43

Some basic 9 Patch blocks, along with some not so basic.

I like it.

I am wondering how long it will take me to go through every project file and convert it to EQ8, which I have been doing since EQ8 arrived in November. I have put a few files into retirement after I shared the last designs, and didn’t feel like playing in that area of my playground again, but most get a design or two added, or a face lift with new fabrics, sometimes I add the quilting layer. Opening some projects is like opening the door ...

EQ 9x9s at Christmas 6, 7 from Virtual Quilter

EQ 9x9s at Christmas 6

A very rich colour scheme, another series of designs in colours which could be used all year round.

EQ 9x9s at Christmas 7

This one could be called ‘Starry, Starry Night.’

EQ 9x9s 75 from Virtual Quilter

EQ 9x9s 75

Still love this series. It was one of the first ones I started when I realized that I needed to have a few spare designs on hand if I was going to add a quilt design here everyday.

It started a passion for exploring designs using a small collection of blocks, and I am still amazed at just how many designs can be created using, in this case, just nine basic blocks.
