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 love it … although it is a bit blue. I do like the quilting design as it is clean and simple, and would be suitable to use with most of our modern waddings which are much less likely to … Continue reading
I love it! Love the second too, and love the both thread colours as well as the quilting designs.
Interesting design. I like the second one, but the applique border is too wide. I like this one … always like wholecloth quilts, though i would choose a nicer background fabric. I often use uninteresting, dull or plain boring fabrics … Continue reading
A little bit of applique plus a LOT of quilting. I seem to have forgotten to add any applique at all, but I love wholecloth quilts! I like the last, but my favourite for the day is the wholecloth design.
Experimenting with colour combinations so that the quilting lines show up nicely … purple lines on yellow works … … but I like purple on purple better. Follow this link to see the original colouring.
