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.

This project file started when I wanted to find ways to turn corners of beaded corners … it continues to grow several years later. A single straight line of beads can turn a corner without any embellishment, but it is … Continue reading

I have spent many happy hours playing with little leaf/bead shape, creating designs of all sorts, but this project file is confined to simple borders … and getting around the corners. The one on the left shows five different corners … Continue reading
This project file was started so I could see how many applique beaded border designs I could find … and how many ways I could turn corners! I also liked the way so many similar borders looked when used exclusively.
We can all see the applique shapes, but part of my brain is seeing quilting lines … and I love both views!
Same simple shape as yesterday, and the day before … and I love this one too.
One applique shape in all but one border … that one border has a few round beads added. Adding more shapes could lead to lots of fun when stringing virtual fabric beads, just like it does when stringing real beads.
