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.

EQ can turn blocks into quilt settings at the click of a button, but there is a catch. The blocks must be made up of squares and rectangles, no triangles or any other shapes which involve any angles other than … Continue reading
I am not sure if this is a new challenge, but I should have used this as the first challenge with the little bit of editing I have done. This post originally appeared soon after my Virtual Quilter blog first … Continue reading
