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 un-seen designs to others, and occasionally share designs by making some EQ6 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.

When I started this project series I wanted to make the sashing the dominant part of the design, but there are a lot of blank spaces in this one which could feature some spectacular quilting. Advertisements

I love it!
Sashing is what we use to separate blocks to change the look of a quilt. This series of designs explores what might happen if you use sashing to create the design, then add a few accent blocks.
I have used four applique blocks in this layout, and I would be tempted to use tone on tone blocks in other areas of the quilt, or simply quilt block-like designs into the spaces, simply letting the sashing shine.
Have you ever thought of using sashing and sashing squares as borders? How about sashing blocks individually and floating them in the quilt.
