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.

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.

Needs some quilting lines added, but being Christmas Eve there are a few other things to fill in my day … maybe by next Christmas! I am always amazed how many ways one small shape can be repeated to create … Continue reading
Hmm! The centre of the first designs sort of looks like a game of Noughts and Crosses. I love it. Second design is much simpler, and I love it … no favourite for today.
Love the design above, and particularly love the block without the beaded frame. In the second design I love the quilted beaded circle surrounding that same block design.
I love playing with virtual beads … and love the results. Love the simplicity of the straight lines of beads, and also the double swag border.
