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 is based on one block, but with the background fabric used for some of the pieces. The seam lines between the coloured pieces are used as the quilting motif. I prefer dark backgrounds for any star block, … Continue reading
I find that when I start a new project I tend to use muted colours, a minimum number of fabrics, and concentrate on getting the contrast in the right places for the design to work. Working with pretty or bright … Continue reading
Lots of little blocks equals lots of design possibilities! I love the second design, but if I was going to make it, I would spend a lot of time swapping colours.
I have a lot of fun mixing unrelated blocks to see what happens. I usually get carried away by the blocks and just go with whatever fabrics I find first, and promise myself that I will play with colour another … Continue reading
Nice one, even if I do say so myself. Love the second one.
