EQ Mexican Rose Quilt 18, 19, 20

Interesting concept in the placing of blocks around the edge.

Also interesting is that I placed them where I already had quilting motifs. I left the motifs as they were, but would I still quilt an outline of the applique? I think I would.

Sometimes I think that I waste far too much time designing virtual quilts, and not enough time working on real ones, but I keep finding interesting things that lead me to try new concepts, and by doing it here on Electric Quilt I don’t damage any fabric finding out if the idea is worth transferring to reality.

I should add that I often notice things when I open a project file I haven’t looked at for months, or even years, that I didn’t see when I was playing way back when.

The only reason I have a favourite for today is because one of them has made me think outside the square … well inside the square really!

About Virtual Quilter

I am a quilter who designs many more quilts than I will ever make, and I am sharing one quilt design every day in Virtual Quilter. I also share my completed projects in Stuff-Ups, and Christmas decorations in Christmas Everyday of the Year.

    These are pretty, Judy! I am glad that you give yourself time to develop as a designer! Tastes change, and we learn new things along the journey that make revisiting an old idea worthwhile. 🙂


    • Laura,

      My tastes have changed over the years, but there are times when I just simply look at something a little differently to see more, or different, possibilities to what I noticed when I did the original design.

    I find the block placement in the first design really interesting too.
