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.

Most star blocks are pieced, but I wondered if stars could be appliqued. A centre circle and some tear drop shapes proved to be quite versatile, and someday I might try rounded diamonds. But for now, I love these blocks! They … Continue reading
