Time to set another series on point, and because there are several series with the same fabrics I decided I needed a complete change.
You can check out the original fabrics way back in the beginning of EQ Album
This time I have deleted the original fabrics, kept some of the additions from EQ Album + and introduced some new.
Too many choices, so settled for the dramatic red and black, or black and gold with just a touch of red.
Or how bout some very subtle gold on cream?
I like them all, so will just mix them up.
Of course, I can also vary the size, or the number of blocks.
Even make them a bit too dark, though that might still be that my new monitor is still set a bit on the dark side.
(There is some colour there!)
And back to gold on black for the final virtual quilt for the day.
And my favourite for the day!
You can see all of the EQ Album series in EQ Album and EQ Album + Archives
Only two more sleeps until Electric Quilt 7 is shipped.
Twelve more virtual quilts required for me to meet my challenge of reaching 1,000 virtual quilts by that day.
I have learned a lot about what I want to do after the challenge is over while uploading 250 virtual quilts in less than 6 weeks.
I know I have way more virtual quilts than I need to keep Virtual Quilter busy for several years …. and the project files are still growing.
I know my computer needs some serious housework and some extra brain power added, and I would like to live somewhere those in power think is important enough to provide a much better internet service. (But we can’t all live in that little bit of space!)
I know there are not enough days in the year for me to write full instructions for a huge volume of designs,and not enough money to go around for people to pay for full instructions every time they want to make a quilt..
But I know I can prepare a fairly large volume of original block pattern sheets with the help of the Electric Quilt program, and sell them for a small price.
Quilters would only need to purchase the block patterns for the blocks they need for a specific quilt, or purchase all the blocks I use in one series and have more than enough quilt designs to keep them going for as long as I can keep designing virtual quilts.
Specific instructions would be minimal, but more detailed instructions for a particular technique could be available separately for those who need them, and some virtual and real quilts will get the full pattern treatment.
Do I need Electric Quilt 7 for this?
No! Not really.
Though there are some features which are very high on my want list, so am I looking forward to playing with the new toy?
