Autumn Patches 19, 20 from Virtual Quilter

Very busy, but I like the four plain squares near the centre … somewhere to rest the eyes.

Borders are a great way to make a collection of blocks made for a double bed big enough for a king size bed. I would be happy doing the applique, but would simplify the pieced one.

Nan’s Nine Patches 35, 36 from Virtual Quilter


I love the second design, but it certainly lacks the WOW factor of the first one!

Penny’s Patch Play 17, 18 from Virtual Quilter

It is busy, but I like it anyway.

Like the second one too … it has room for the quilting to shine.

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.

Elevenses 67, 68 from Virtual Quilter


Lovely … and restful.

Right now I could use the restful part of that!

Daze of Christmas 19, 20 from Virtual Quilter

I like it! I have never been a fan of quilts made with one block design repeated all over.

I much prefer to break the monotony of stitching up a great pile of identical blocks, and I like seeing the interest just a few different blocks added to the quilt top make.

I love the second design!

My Bright Patches 15, 16 from Virtual Quilter

I don’t think I would enjoy making up any more than four or five of the pieced blocks in this design, but would be happy to make up to four of each of the five pieced blocks … which just leaves the eight applique blocks.

I like the second design, but if I had to choose one of these two to make up I would make the blocks for the first, and add the applique border from the second.

Hanging In There from Quilty Folk

We're mostly doing fine, just feeling headachy and stressed. Very thankful that so many of the people we know and love have been able to return already to an intact home. Today though, the fires are a few miles away and across the Columbia river. Much closer than we can possibly be happy about. No evacuation notices for our little town just yet, but it could come. Uggh. I've got a file box of important papers ready just in case, but nothing else. We're just tired. Weary. Sick that this particular fire was started intentionally. Some people ...

Autumn Daze 75, 76 from Virtual Quilter

Two designs from one of my favourite project files today.

Not too sure about the blue … partly because it is not my favourite colour … but I think it would look better with more blues amongst the border scraps.

Nan’s Nine Patches 31, 32 from Virtual Quilter

I much prefer applique to pieced quilts, but I love the design above.

Love the second design too!

Maybe my eyes are telling me that the curved seams are applique!

Ormes Inspired For the Finish from Quilty Folk

So... How bout a hundred pictures of the recently completed 'Ormes Inspired' quilt top? It was one of those spring days where it was overcast one minute and blazingly bright and sunny the next. Hopefully you can figure out the true color of the quilt eventually if you look at enough pictures!

Ormes Inspired 
This quilt top was started back in August of 2019. Sort of a spur of the moment project but then, not really. I had been eyeing this pattern for a very long time and in fact had recently gotten permission from the very talented artist Jane ...

EQ OP 29, 30 from Virtual Quilter

Wish I could sleep in like that cat! I woke up at 5.30 this morning, got up at 6 because I was sick of laying around doing nothing … except trying to go to sleep!

And just like the cat, I got up and started looking at virtual quilts!

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!

EQ and Me at Christmas 7, 8 from Virtual Quilter

I like it!

The blocks in this project file are straight out of the Electric Quilt Block library.

I prefer my Christmas decor to be clear and bright red, white and green, but would accept that is was once much righter, but has been loved and used, and so washed, many times and has faded.

The second design for the day lacks some quilting!

So, two things to work on for next Christmas. Add some quilting to this project, and start a new project for those who like a blue and white Christmas.

Daze of Christmas 15, 16, 17 from Virtual Quilter

Like the first offering for today … could be just a general quilt, with just enough of the Christmas colours to be seasonal.

Mind you, in Australia we rarely need a quilt during the Christmas break, which is why I have a Christmas quilt with no wadding!

Change the background colour, add a little more red, and it is a little more like Christmas!

I love this last one!

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.
