Bright Life Alternate Colours 29, 30 from Virtual Quilter

Found a couple of designs unshared in a project file I was about to put in the retired pile, so thought I should share them. The first designs is in very high contrast bright colours.

The second design is not bright!

What a difference. I should do this more often!

Border Beauties 47, 48 from Virtual Quilter

Love it!

Also love the second design.

The cat prefers the second, but I refuse to play favourites with these two.

Annie Clover and Pieces 35, 36 from Virtual Quilter

Love it!

Not too sure why I love this project file … the assorted block designs, or the rather unusual colour combination.

Festival Garden 21, 22 from Virtual Quilter

Spring has sprung down under … well, at least the calendar has been turned over. Many of the spring bulbs jumped into action early despite a rather cold winter, and almond blossoms have been and gone.

I think I should plant a creeper on that trellis … or perhaps embroider one!

Super 7s OP 21, 22 from Virtual Quilter

Very interesting!

Another interesting design.

I would usually say that the second, with the applique, was my favourite of the two, but both these designs are something a bit different to the average quilt designs I cannot pick a favourite.

Festival Garden 17, 18, 19, 20 from Virtual Quilter

I don’t seem to be able to stop thinking about gardens, even when the weather turns cold and damp, but at least I can stay warm with virtual gardening.

I love that interlocking border, which I think was designed several years ago at a quilt exhibition when I was demonstrating some of the things I could do with Electic Quilt, and spending lots of time catching up with fellow quilters.

Another interesting effect around the centre block.

Third time playing with those same blocks, with no central feature. Probably better for a tablecloth rather than a bed quilt, though ...

Black and White Plus 28, 29, 30 from Virtual Quilter

Stunning combination of fabrics.

I cannot see me ever making a black, white and red quilt, but if I ever feel the need, or have a recipient in mind, I have the designs to choose from.

I might have to start a new project file with this collection of fabrics one day.

(I have so many things I want to do one day that I need about a year of days to do a fraction of them!)

Autumn Daze 73, 74 from Virtual Quilter

Autumn has arrived down under, along with some dust storms, rain, power failures and cool days in the last week. Keeps life interesting!

The power failure here was a whole afternoon of no sewing, and no gardening as it was raining. I did read quite a bit of a thick book played with quilt designs, and did some sewing after dark to make up for the lost time. Wonder what this week will bring?

Love the second one!

I love the first design of the day … and of the week, and of the month!

The second is interesting.

Quilted Border Beauties 13, 14 from Virtual Quilter

I love it!

Love this one too.

I like the effect of the broken border of small crosses. I have used that border before but spaced as they are around the corner all the way round, and liked them that way, but also like them alternated with the inner border. I have also used them spaced as they are here before. Another thing I noticed with a quick glance is that the grape vine almost appears as a separate border to the grapes. That would probably change if the grapes were not so ripe!

Nice one!


Saved the best till last … in my humble opinion anyway!

Elevenses OP 16, 17, 18 from Virtual Quilter


Love the second one.

I love this one too.

So very different to anything I would normally even think of doing, so have to admit it was a mistake, but not a mistake I regret making!

Patricia's Patches Quilted 15, 16 from Virtual Quilter


Something I must do for real one day is to make a quilt with some low contrast blocks along with some with higher contrast.

Or perhaps I could just use the low contrast in parts of the blocks, not the whole block.

After all, I do quite a few designs with low contrast pieces in my virtual quilts.

Log Applique Album 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 from Virtual Quilter

Found an old project file which had few designs by comparison to most, and those that were there needed attention, so saved five for today, then retired the project.

I like the challenge of trying to find suitable applique to use with, and on, Log Cabin blocks, and intend trying different colours, and different appliques in the future.

Love the one above … one of the reasons I had to use this project file one more time.

Like the one above too.

I love the last … the one which made me want to share a handful of the last 8 designs ...
