EQ Dozen Again 6

EQ Dozen Again 6

I started the first of the EQ Dozen project files when I thought I might run out of virtual quilts to share.

I might start another couple with different fabrics … not that i am in any danger of running out of virtual quilts, or UFOs of real quilts.

Lovin’ Spoonful in the Pink


Lovin' Spoonful in the Pink 1

While I was working out the ins and outs of the EQ8 Library system, I was working from a project file I had no intentions of ever using for anything other than as a learning tool.

I even tried adding something to Layer 2 when all I had in the sketchbook was a seagull.

However, as usually happens I added some fabrics I liked, and some blocks I liked, designs just wanted to be saved in the Sketchbook …

… and shared as a virtual quilt.

EQ Dozen + Quilting 4

EQ Dozen + Quilting 4

That heavy thread has found it’s way into another virtual quilt, and like virtual fabric in Electric Quilt it will never run out!

The last few nights the last thing I wanted over me was a quilt … even the sheet was too heavy. That is what happens in summer, but at least it is a good time to wash quilts, which is a project I will tackle soon, and no trouble with fading, as we now have shade cloth over the clothes line.

Before Pompeii 3

Before Pompeii 3

This project file has been pretty much ignored for a while, but found it when introducing projects to EQ8. Not that it was missing, just out of mind!

Most of those block designs would make great quilting motifs.

Stained Glass Early Project 4

Love the design, but if I ever use it I will have to work on the colours.

Cornerstone + Blues 96, 97, 98, 99, 100

Cornerstone + Blues 96

Welcome to the first of 52 five minute Log Cabin Retreats for 2018.

Cornerstone + Blues 97

I started Mid Week Log Cabin Retreats to share a multitude of surplus Log Cabin Quilt designs, by sharing two a day, which grew to four, and is now five. I am not making much headway in reducing the surplus, but it has turned Wednesday into the busiest day on Virtual Quilter, even though some people check out the mid week post over the weekend. Wednesdays were the quietest day of the week.

Cornerstone + Blues 98

Love the one above! One of the most interesting Log Cabin designs I have found.

Cornerstone + Blues 99

I would love to change the colour combination in this project fie, but it is not going to happen … the file would grow to gigantic proportions if I did it the easiest way, and to do it by changing individual blocks it would take quite some time … there over 500 designs. I must remember not to get so carried away again … EVER!

Cornerstone + Blues 100

That is the lot for this week … more Log Cabin variations next week, mid week.

Strawberry Fete 7, 8

Strawberry Fete 7

I have made a few changes to the size of some of the block parts … need to spend way more time, but I am liking the results so far.

More will come sometime in the future, but please don’t hold your breath waiting.

Strawberry Fete 3, 4, 5, 6

Strawberry Fete 3

Back in November I shared my first Electric Quilt 8 project file, and thought it was about time to have another play in that patch of my files, while we are able to enjoy real, fresh strawberries here in Australia.

Strawberry Fete 4

I suspect that these designs will become rather repetitive after a few designs, because even though there are many variations of the basic block design they look very similar until you look fairly closely.

Strawberry Fete 5

The colours are lovely and fresh, the way I like my strawberries, but the blocks need to vary in size to make the differences in the blocks more noticeable.

Strawberry Fete 6

So I will have to turn over some new leaves in this project file to keep me and you interested, and when I am not being a virtual quilter, or a real on either, I might have to plant some strawberries.

Welcome to the new year … and may you and your family enjoy every moment of it.
