Anns Album 62 from Virtual Quilter

I am amazed how many designs can be created from any given set of blocks. Even just two blocks can be alternated or used in rounds. There are still more designs in this project file, created from 10 blocks, most of which have been modified a few times.

I like the restful colours in this project file.

Ann’s Album Q ‘n’ A 8, 9 from Virtual Quilter

Love this … the narrow sashing disappears in places but frames the colour changes made to the applique backgrounds.

I rather like this one too.

Red and Green 30, 31, 32 from Virtual Quilter

With sashing …

… without sashing.

I like the version without sashing. 

I would like the last one more without sashing … sashing breaks up the overall design too much.

Something to think about … do you support quilt designers?

Border Beauties 38, 39 from Virtual Quilter

Border Beauties 38

Trying something different … joining blocks separated by a solid block, but with a contrast line added to the centre of the plain block. An idea which would work better with different pieced and applique blocks, but interesting!

Border Beauties 39

In this second design the sashing is nearly as wide as the blocks … which makes some odd shaped pieces … do you know how to use paper templates stuck to the wrong side of a clear ruler to cut weird shapes?

On Ringo Lake--Chocolate Lovers Edition from TheEclecticAbuela

I finished my version of Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt called On Ringo Lake. I call mine the Chocolate Lovers Edition, since my cornerstones and other pieces are made of fabric printed with chocolates and chocolate chips.

I changed Bonnie's aqua to green, but I stuck with her other suggested colors.

On Ringo Lake--Chocolate Lovers Edition (76" x 92")

Nearly everything came from my scraps/stash--even the backing fabric. I thought backing was a good use for the fabric since the print is ...

Super Sashing 31 from Virtual Quilter

In this project file I wanted to see what would happen if I made the sashing half as wide as the blocks. The results are certainly interesting.

Super Sashing 30 from Virtual Quilter

Super Sashing 30

Rather dramatic!

I think I could play with this concept for hours. Basically it is just designing a quilt with sashing, but using the background fabric in the sashing as well as the blocks. Some designs could be modified to eliminate seam lines, but at the basic design level it is easier to just blank out the sashing with the background fabric.
