Anna Karena 7 from Virtual Quilter

Interesting, but I think the border is too wide, and could use some quilting.

Quilted Border Beauties 12 from Virtual Quilter

Love this one! Could applique the bigger pieces, embroider leaves and stems, then add quilting!

Annie Clover’s Curved Illusions 18 from Virtual Quilter

I wouldn’t mind living with something like this design … though there would be a waiting period while the quilting was completed, and I think I would change the border quilting.

I set out to start quilting two projects recently … one will continue as planned, but the other was going to be by had, decided I could do it by machine, but it is back on the hand list!

Patricia’s Patches Quilted 13 from Virtual Quilter

I love using low contrast for some pieces in pieced blocks as I have done in both of the pieced blocks in this design.

Love the peacocks too.

Aunt Flo’s Quilt 18 from Virtual Quilter

I love this!

Though I have to admit that there is too much piecing involved. I have spent the last week sorting out pieced blocks in my Electric Quilt library, and I have barely scratched the surface. One series of designs I originally called Whit’s Whimsies, but it has been renamed to Whit’s End … I was at my wit’s end trying to get get them in some sort of order!

Patch Play Quilted 12 from Virtual Quilter

Love the quilting motifs in this design … all based on the applique blocks.

Lovin’ Spoonful 36 from Virtual Quilter

Looks old fashioned so would look OK in our room, but probably too formal. Perhaps different colour scheme would suit better!

Felicity Anderson Q’n’A 4 from Virtual Quilter

Nice, but not sure about the background fabric.

I think I would like to have a lighter background, but then the white lillies are going to melt into the background. I just tried black but didn’t like that as the applique designs were overpowered by the extent of the black.

One thing about playing with design in Electric Quilt … always learning about what works and what doesn’t work for me … and if it doesn’t I try to change it.

Fiddlebob Quilt 5 from Virtual Quilter

I like it!

Love the way the applique designs in this series work as quilting motifs.

Fig Jam 34 from Virtual Quilter

I should have renamed this one to The Fig Thieves!

Annie Clover Quilted 13 from Virtual Quilter

I like it, but I think the centre block would make a better quilting motif than the one I have used in this design.

Quilting Thread and Beads 14 from Virtual Quilter


I know it is not polite to shout, but I didn’t want anybody to miss what I said.

EQ Album Revisited 19 from Virtual Quilter

I like it!

A little bit of applique, room for quilting to shine.

Autumn Daze Quilting 16 from Virtual Quilter

I stepped outside with my morning coffee … but only briefly.

Autumn was over a month ago, and the frost on the ground this morning was a reminder that we are looking for some nice steady rain, not frost!

I like today’s design as it looks like it would be warm if it was real instead of virtual. Thankfully we do have real quilts on our bed, and the spare beds even if they don’t look like any of the designs I share here!

Patched and Pieced 32 from Virtual Quilter

Another old fashioned looking design.

I love the border on this one, but there is a bit but! It is way too wide!

Now I love the border even more, though there is a lot more piecing to do in the narrow version.

Another reaon to love Electric Quilt … it took just a few seconds to change the design of the border.

Another reason to love Electric Quilt … it takes just a few minutes to add quilting!

Lovin’ Spoonful 36 from Virtual Quilter

I love this series, and I love the spoon which started it. Every design in this series reminds me of antiques every time I open the Electric Quilt project file. I keep trying to find a much brighter colour scheme, but they just look wrong to me.

Perhaps it is the influence of the antique spoon!

White Quilting 10 from Virtual Quilter

Quilters don’t always cut up big pieces of fabric and join them back together.

Sometimes we use just two very big pieces of fabric and go straight to the quilting.

(If fact, the cutting up and joining back together part of the process is technically patchwork.)

Pieced Patched and Pretty Quilted 1 from Virtual Quilter

Another one from the lost and found box. I think my virtual quilt UFO collection is rivalling my real UFO collection.

I like the fabrics, like the mix of pieced and applique, like the border … and it would look right at home in our bedroom!

Another one to add to possible future real projects!
