I want to make one like this … another dream project to add to the list!
All because I made a mistake in Electric Quilt 7 … by adding blocks to a quilt layout with just the background colour added. Sometimes it really is worth making a mistake, providing you learn from it!
I really want to make one of these designs, but I will not be starting new projects this year … this years project is to pack up and leave this town for another, as we have reached the age of retirement. I have plenty of projects to work on, and all I have to do is make sure I keep all the bits together for each project … including needles, thread, etc!
Wish me luck, or be prepared to lend me anything from a rotary cutter, to a pin!
At least everything I need for virtual quilting is right here in the computer.
Love it … just a hint of colour so I can imagine it in any colour I like, or just as it is.
There is some room for a little bit of creative quilting after outlining the applique pieces, and plenty of shapes to use , though just cross hatching would be ok on this one.
Love this one too, especially the way the square has grown points.
Blocks direct from the Electric Quilt library, borders too … all I had to do was pick a setting, add blocks, choose colours.
I haven’t played in this project file for quite some time, and I am thinking that I would change the colours a bit, change the setting a little, leave more room for quilting … but I would not change the border!
I have spent a lot of time modifying applique blocks since I started using Electric Quilt. I usually start by rotating the design 45 degrees … then start removing pieces, multiplying pieces, shrinking pieces, enlarging pieces to create a series of block designs.
The result is a series of at least 12 blocks which are perfect to be used together.
This project file has 38 variations to applique, and over 100 quilting designs.
I liked this one, but thought I could make it better.
What a difference a few block changes,and a twist, make!
I love Electric Quilt.
Very interesting design.
Interesting, but I like the first ones more than this one.
More interest, specifically the straight zigzag lines which give a fleeting impression of blocks set straight … until you focus on the logs in the blocks.
Onpoint and curved seams … another interesting design.
There are well over 200 designs in this project file, and they are all interesting.
With several project files of similar size featuring Log Cabin blocks, I can continue Mid Week Retreats for a long time.
I like it … but I would like it more if it had some quilting added.
Nice one to start the week.
I like it. Some piecing, some applique, and some simple quilting lines.
More piecing but with curves, less applique and not a lot of quilting apart from the outlines which I don’t add to virtual quilts, as I do it close too, but not directly in the ditch, so the lines of quilting don’t show a lot, but it still adds the third dimension to the piecing and applique shapes.
