White on Bright 9, 10 from Virtual Quilter

Something to brighten up the day, and drop a hint to those in charge of the weather that spring has sprung, and we expect a sunny day or tow before the end of the month.

These designs would save a lot of anguish about what fabric choice. First select white, then grab a darker colour!

The local sporting colours where I live now are red and white, my home team when I was growing up wore blue and white, my Dad’s favourite state team was black and white, it would depend on who I was making the quilt for.

Tiled Applications 9 from Virtual Quilter

Dainty and subdued, nice choice for a restful look in a bedroom.

I like the second design best of these two.

I would really like to change the title of this project file, but have no idea what to change it to. All suggestions will be considered.

Aunt Flo’s Quilt 33, 34 from Virtual Quilter

Most of the quilts I have made are sampler album quilts, so I don’t have to make heaps of identical blocks, and they can be a mixture of pieced and and applique blocks, but I love the design above.

I would probably fall in love with it every time I walked into our bedroom, but would be bored stiff making it!

More pieced blocks in the second would make it quicker to put together, but I like more applique in the mix than this one has.

Patched and Pieced 41, 42 from Virtual Quilter

Love the first design, and think it would look great in pretty colours, bright colours … any colours … providing the contrast is right.

Slightly more masculine than the first, and I like it.

Petal Power 3, 4 from Virtual Quilter

My garden features lots of pink, and lots of green … far too much as much of the green at the moment is weeds.

However, in virtual and real quilts I can limit the amount of green, and I love the results.

Less blocks, smaller quilt unless the blocks are enlarged, but still pretty.

A Spoonful of Sugar 11, 12 from Virtual Quilter

Very dainty, very pretty and I love it, though not for me!

More of the same, and still love it. I seem to have a purple fetish of late, perhaps because August was my Mum’s birth month, and now it is September and a great month to play in the garden which Mum loved to do. In addition, one of her favourite flowers is currently in bloom in the garden, and yes, it is a purple one!

Gran’s New Beads 21, 22 from Virtual Quilter

Very pretty.

Almost the same, but I like the one block change!

Quilted Border Beauties 25, 26 from Virtual Quilter

Pretty and dainty.

Because I share my bed with my husband this is not the sort of design or colour combination I could use on our bed, but I can design as many of this style and colouring as I like.

I have never lived with an indoor cat but every so often one gets to admire my quilt designs.

Ann’s Album Q ‘n’ A 23, 24 from Virtual Quilter

Love today’s designs, but my favourite of the two is the first!

Love the quilting motifs more in the second one.

Kelly’s Custom Quilts 33, 34 from Virtual Quilter

Oh, so dainty! Love it!

Love the second one too, partly because only the background fabric has been changes for some blocks.

Strawberry Fete 13, 14 from Virtual Quilter

Looks delicious … my favourite fruit!

Thank goodness strawberry season is approaching, though it feels as though it is moving very slowly!

Must stock up on ice-cream just in case there is a sudden burst of warm weather!

Hearts Growing 7, 8 from Virtual Quilter

Pretty.

More prettiness. I love the colours in this project file, which reflects the colours I like most in my garden, and most other gardens. Flowers of pink, purple, blue and white, with green leaves. Unfortunately there are usually green weeds too!

Ferns and Flora 23, 24 from Virtual Quilter

Very dainty! Lots of room for some dainty quilting motifs!

The second design is still rather dainty, and there ARE quilting motifs filling the spaces.

Anna Karena 23, 24 from Virtual Quilter

I love the sashing in this design. I rarely use sashing in my designs, though in many of the quilts I have made I have used sashing, but not one as interesting as the one shown above.

I like the border on the second design, but am asking myself what if I make some changes of scale of the end elements?

PS I apologize for not posting this earlier, but I had a few other things I wanted to do and forgot, but I did get those other things done!

Brandis Street Blocks 21 from Virtual Quilter

I love this collection of blocks which were inspired by an old scrap of linoleum found at the bottom of a drawer.

A lot of the shapes could make rather nice embroidery designs as well as the applique and quilting motifs I have used them for.

Love some of the lines created by the quilting motifs in both designs.

Felicity Anderson Q’n’A 17, 18 from Virtual Quilter

I wonder how easy, or hard, it would be to do a really big applique block?

It could be very impressive when complete, but getting it done could create some problems.

Many more applique blocks with an interesting result, though the quilting is a bit boring, apart from hose eight quilted versions of applique blocks.

Abigail Bolton Design 3, 4 from Virtual Quilter

I am always fascinated by the variety of designs I find by playing with the shapes used in a block design. There are over fifty variations in this block file which need some sorting to put them in order, but it much more fun playing with the block designs in quilt designs than sorting them!

Of course, the block designs can also be turned into quilting motifs.

Fine Iron Lace Q and A 23, 24 from Virtual Quilter

I always have to look hard at the iron lace decorating old buildings, and have been guilty of driving around the block to find a parking spot so I can have a better look, and maybe take a photo, several times.

The designs in this project file, and several others I have filed away, have some applique, and some quilting motifs based on the applique designs in the project along with some blank spaces. In a real quilt I would fill in those blank spaces with quilting in a thread colour which matches the background fabric, while the quilting design ...
