I am a quilter who uses a computer program to design way more quilts than I could ever make in several lifetimes.
The quilts featured on this site have never been made. No stash has been harmed in the process.
This site is a chance to show the un-used and unseen designs to others, and occasionally share designs by making some EQ8 project files available by email on request.
Please note that my only association with the Electric Quilt Company is as a very satisfied customer.
I prefer to be in a tag free zone and award free area. I am just happy to know you came for a look.

The Sturt Desert Pea is an unusual flower, but makes for interesting formal arrangements which only vaguely resemble how the flower is seen in the wild. I like both of these designs, and am thinking about more ways to arrange … Continue reading
Our state’s floral emblem, though it doesn’t form neat and tidy patterns as I have arranged them in these virtual quilts. Love the second design! May be able to share a photo of a real flower later today!
From now until Christmas I will be sharing designs each day with a Christmas theme, and like these designs, some not related to Christmas, like these. Not a Christmas quilts, but I am guilty of making felt Desert Pea flowers … Continue reading
Interesting, but very formal arrangements of the Sturt Desert Pea. Here is a link to some photos of the real thing. Unfortunately, they are not the easiest plants to grow in the home garden … I put in some seeds … Continue reading
I love Sturt Desert Peas, but I keep wanting to change the background to green … but am trying to resist because these flowers bloom in the desert! I suspect that I am going to change it one day, as … Continue reading
