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 like it … might be the favourite for the day! What looks like sashing is really just the outer strip of a Log Cabin block. Like the variation of the width of the outer strips in the curved blocks … Continue reading
I usually like designs which have dark frame around the central design, plus a dark border but with a small contrast between the border and the dark … like the one above. However, I love the one above, without that … Continue reading
Courthouse Steps is a variation of the Log Cabin block … the difference between the two is that to piece a Log Cabin block, you work around the centre square, to piece a Courthouse Steps block you work on opposite … Continue reading
Thank goodness it is Wednesday, middle of the week, so I can retreat … after the last couple of weeks I need to retreat from food, family and friends for some quiet times. (It was fun while it lasted though!) … Continue reading
Interesting! More interesting! Another interesting design. I am rather liking how these blocks are working … and because there are less logs, they are less work to make them. Results would be worth every stitch.
