Pieced, Patched, Pretty and Sashed 2, 3, 4 from Virtual Quilter

Every so often I stop playing with block designs, and play with sashing designs instead.

As you can see in these designs the sashing can be used as border designs too.

And then of course, you can add some blocks with some tricky bits pieced to form a frame around an applique.

Gran’s New Fans 23, 24 from Virtual Quilter

One of the project files which have been in existence for ten years, and sitting around doing nothing for most of it. Today I am sharing the last two virtual quilts and putting the file into retirement. Mind you, I am finding that retirement leaves little time for play or rest some days, and some weeks and months!

I like both of the designs, but I think the last is my favourite.

Tangled Irish Chain Apps 10, 11, 12 from Virtual Quilter

Love the first design for today.

Love, love, love the second one!

Must be some Irish blood in my veins, though if that is the case I should have used shamrocks for the applique! And the quilting.

Love the last one too … or three!

Irish Chain and Loopy Stuff 4, 5 from Virtual Quilter

Can you see that the applique blocks have squares pieced into the corners?

I like the one above … and should try this idea with different appliques. I think I need another seven days in my weeks so there is time to play in EQ8 for more hours.

Log Cabin Leaf Central 56, 57, 58, 59, 60 from Virtual Quilter

I like it, though would find the applique repetitive.

The second one is more so, but I still like it.

That is better … more variety!

Variety of applique again, and an interesting setting.

Love the setting in the last.

This is the last design in this project, and I am thinking that this is a good excuse to start a new project. New colours, and new applique! I am thinking that I will replace the leaves with flowers.

Pieced Patched and Pretty Quilted 4, 5, 6 from Virtual Quilter

I think the first one at least, lives up to the pretty part of the title.

Interesting sashing, except that it is not really sashing, it is part of the blocks.

I think all three designs are pretty!

Annie Clover Curved Illusions 19, 20 from Virtual Quilter

I wanted to see if the illusion of curves was noticeable if it was just quilt lines … works for me!

The colour helps the illusion though!

Autumn Daze Quilting 17 from Virtual Quilter

Some of us are living through autumn, some of us are heading into summer, but I like these series of designs regardless of the season.

Log Cabin Leaf Central 46, 47, 48, 49, 50 from Virtual Quilter

I am not sure how it is the middle of another week … it feels like there has just been a couple of days, but apart from the usual week days we have had a long weekend since the last mid week.

I am not going to pick a favourite this week … I like them all. A very interesting mixture of designs.

The one above is probably my least favourite design, but it is still an interesting design.

Love the fig leaves in this one … perhaps they should all have been fig leaves.

Just checking over the five designs, my favourite ...
