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 un-seen designs to others, and occasionally share designs by making some EQ6 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 design above is the one which is most often called Drunkards Path. Look what happens if we add a second contrast fabric. It sort of looks like a couple of twisted ribbons criss-crossing each other. What if I twist … Continue reading
Yesterday the Patchwork Jigsaw designs I shared were designed with single units. With the designs for today the basic squares are used to make 2 x 2 blocks before constructing the quilt top. I am wondering if there are more … Continue reading
