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.

I like it … it looks like an old well used, faded and well loved item. At least the virtual fabric isn’t as worn and the colour appears!
Quiet, restful … winding down after a great weekend. And more space for a virtual quilter to play in after the unpacking etc after time away from home.
Quilts don’t need a multitude of bright colours for the design to shine. Colour can add lots of zing if it is used well, but contrast is the most important element in design. PS I am home again after 9 … Continue reading
Interesting. ………………………………………….. Something to think about when designing or redesigning your sewing area.
