Lovin’ Spoonful 51, 52 from Virtual Quilter

Love the spoon which inspired this series of designs … love the design above.

The title for the series had a different inspiration, from a different era to that old spoon.

Love the second one more!

Star for Selina OP 11, 12 from Virtual Quilter

A formation dance team made up of stars!

The stars in the second design look as though they are trying to imitate a major star.

Sealink Starr OP 9, 10 from Virtual Quilter

Choose one block, add/subtract a few lines, add fabric samples, and see what you get.

Note, the second design does use the same block as the first.

Kelly’s Custom Quilts 21, 22 from Virtual Quilter

Love the idea of creating a design by using different background fabrics, and designs like the ones here show why!

I like the first one best, but I have learned something from the second one … use finest, dotted line available in Electric Quilt for the best quilting lines when added to a blog. The quilting lines are fine when they are printed out, but tend to look splodgy when uploaded.

Pieced Patched and Pretty Quilted 9, 10, 11, 12 from Virtual Quilter

The first design today looks like 9 applique blocks set on point with quilted sashing, but it is 9 applique blocks in a 5×5 straight setting with alternate blocks quilted.

I have just worked out how to stop the quilting designs I add to designs from smudging like the one above … don’t use broken lines, use a fine solid line! … but I think I would still use the broken lines when printing pattern sheets.

Well, I thought I had sorted it out!

Back to the drawing board!

9 Patch ‘n’ Apps 14, 15, 16 from Virtual Quilter

Love the first design for today. Who would have thought that such a bland change of background colour could have such a great effect!

I like the second one too, but it doesn’t excite me as much as the first one.

Like the last one, but not as much as the first one … the applique blocks in the corners are too busy … maybe they should just be quilting motifs, or a variety of less busy appliques.

Patch Play Quilted 21, 22 from Virtual Quilter

I like everything about this design. It isn’t the most exciting design, but I like the colours, the background quilting combined with the motifs used in the corners and the borders is the sort of quilting I prefer.

Don’t like the second one as much … centre is too busy compared to the corners and border.

A Spoonful of Sugar 7, 8 from Virtual Quilter

Love it.

Love this one too … they remind me of applique quilts made a century ago.

Dear, Dear, It’s Quilted 25, 26 from Virtual Quilter

Love the spaces left for quilting.

Maybe a bit too much space for quilting in the second design.

Brooksea 19, 20 from Virtual Quilter

Very, very interesting!

By comparison, I think the second one is quite boring!

Brandis Street Blocks 6, 7, 8 from Virtual Quilter

Not quite as complex as it appears as there are some intricate quilting motifs which look a bit like applique in there!

These designs make me think of some of teh antique designs I have seen.

I love the last one as it has a bit more open space between the applique,

Nan’s Nine Patches 33, 34 from Virtual Quilter

Very, very interesting, but the middle looks a bit blank!

Not much in the middle, but it is better.

Dainty … in size (with 9 inch blocks) and design.

Interesting sashing, and love the whole thing.

Kelly’s Custom Quilts 19, 20 from Virtual Quilter

Interesting effect of using low contrast background behind applique designs, made more interesting in a custom design arrangement of blocks.

I love the second one!

Quilting at Eleven 29, 30 from Virtual Quilter

The quilting motif in the first design today is based on one of the pieced blocks. I love the flowing lines.

The second design has the blocks set on point and looks much busier.

My favourite for today is the first one.

Brandis Street Blocks 5, 6 from Virtual Quilter

I like it. These designs use similar colours to the 1970s floor covering the block designs are based on, just after the 60s orange started to become unfashionable.

I love the second one, but am not happy with the way the quilting looks here. Perhaps my virtual thread is too thick, or the design has too much detail.
