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.

EQ Album Revisited + 23, 24

Just two changes from the first version to the second. The block change is insignificant, the colour change in thirteen blocks makes a huge difference. This is an indication that colour and contrast choice is more important than block choice … Continue reading

Log Cabin Leaf Central 56, 57, 58, 59, 60

I like it, though would find the applique repetitive. The second one is more so, but I still like it. That is better … more variety! Variety of applique again, and an interesting setting. Love the setting in the last. … Continue reading

Piecing Playtime 4, 5, 6

I like lots of things about today’s designs … but not the colour. I like the large print used in some of the blocks and the border, and the contrast is OK. I especially like the dark, light, large print, … Continue reading

Red, Black and White 10, 11, 12

Interesting! Love the second. Love the third, but I would look for a black fabric with more subdued print … or none at all.

Super 7s OP 21, 22

Very interesting! Another interesting design. I would usually say that the second, with the applique, was my favourite of the two, but both these designs are something a bit different to the average quilt designs I cannot pick a favourite.

Another project file that was about to be retired because it was about to be empty of new designs to share … or an excuse to update the colours and carry on. Well, I haven’t changed the colours yet, but … Continue reading

Less Logs in the Cabin 81, 82, 83, 84, 85

Now that is interesting. Note that the less logs in the title of this series refers to the fact that there are only three rounds of strips around the centre instead of the four I usually use. In any Log … Continue reading
