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.

If I decide this is the next project to start I will need to spend some time playing with quilting designs for those blank borders. Note that there are three different ways of turning the corners … This project was … Continue reading
I like it. I have some scraps of fabric with fusible added, and today I think I will use my new toy to cut some of them into ‘beads’ … this possible design needs 940 of them, though I suspect … Continue reading
Another one I rather like! I did miss putting the half beads in the corners of some blocks … in a real quilt I add beads over the joins after the quilt top goes together, and when the quilt is … Continue reading
Love it. One background fabric, one feature fabric, one applique block, modified for some of the quilting. I think I would quilt the corner blocks with the unmodified block design, but use thread matching the background fabric for the centre … Continue reading
There are lots of ways to make a feature section in a string of real beads, and this project file is where I tried to find a few ways to get around corners in the quilter’s version of String of … Continue reading
Love it! Batik fabrics are perfect for the ‘beads’ in these designs … the changing colours are gentler than in most prints and add dimension to the beads. Hand dyes are also great.
Oh so pretty! I could live with that.
