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.

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.
Love it! Who would have thought that one simple shape could lead to so many lovely designs?
The design above was one of several I have in this project file which use the simplest border string, and a collection of the corner designs which I found, and I was curious enough this morning to see how many … Continue reading
That looks like a huge pile of beads to prepare and stitch, but experience tells me it is not as time consuming as it looks. Not quite as many beads, but very interesting design.
