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.

Love the rounded square around the centre! Not only new fans, new fabrics too! I was bored with the old ones, and had a play, then forgot I had changed them. I thought they were still in the old boring … Continue reading
Some interesting shapes created with Grandmother’s Fan blocks. I like the 3D effect in this second design. I usually ignore this series … something to do with the choice of fabrics. I might have to look at that in the … Continue reading
Oh, so pretty! I feel for today’s brides in my part of the world … it is going to be difficult to remain cool!
I hope Granny has a lot of patience as this has been waiting for a long time to be shown to you.
Like the combination in the corners … rather like a bird.
