While dusting in the corners of my Electric Quilt files I found a project file with some of my first virtual quilt designs using blocks I had just drawn into EQ5 … and was so excited that the scribbles on pieces of paper had become something pretty … and recognizable to other people as quilt designs..
I was setting blocks side by side most of the time, though there were a few with alternate blocks.
After deleting all the versions where i was experimenting with colours and borders and saving every little change, I was left with 10 designs.
The fabric choice reflects my daughter’s favourite colours for the first ten years of her life, and are very similar to the Basically Hugs and Primrose Sands ranges which will hit the shelves later this year.
(The designer of those ranges, Helen Stubbings, has a new book coming out soon too!)
