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.

Interesting, though not really fan like. I love the second one, though once again the fans are not obvious in the design,, but I am going to play with the centre bloc design to see if I can make them … Continue reading

This project file was started so I could play with beaded applique borders, in particular, getting around corners. String of beads, no matter how I tangle them up, are my favourite traditional style applique quilts to play with virtually, as … Continue reading
Interesting. I like it, but would have to find just the right quilting to use in the centre. My first thought is Double Wedding String of Bead outlines … with something in the centre. That centre is what I was … Continue reading
Simply repeat blocks … not often I share a design with just one block, but I love the simplicity of this design. The second design for today is more like my usual offerings, but I prefer the first one.
I love the first design. Enough beads to be interesting, but with some open spaces for some equally interesting quilting. I love the second one too … find a heap of colorful but close matching fabrics, and start cutting, and … Continue reading
Nice. This project file features beads of many colours, shapes and sizes, unlike the traditional String of Beads design. Love the second one … a very interesting arrangement.
