Once you start designing things in Electric Quilt and your mind just wants to create you really can’t stop! I suppose you already know that though, don’t you?

I’ve had a thing for feathered designs recently and for some reason the heart shape has inspired me.

I know there is at least one free heart shape design out there for download but I wanted to create my own in Electric Quilt. I wanted the flexibility of being able to change the shape and style if I wanted to. I did draw my design out with pencil and paper first. I’ve been playing with different styles too!

It’s not a fast process but like everything else you definitely get better and faster as you go along.

I’ve finally finished my design and my quilt top. I must say it was great to get it finished and it was a great use of the monkey wrench blocks. I found I had to move the red out to the border as it just overpowered the tea towel image itself. The completed large monkey wrench blocks made a great finish to the design too!

My completed quilt top, as you can see is quite large and will fit my queen size bed perfectly.

I’ve been working away on these blocks for some time now. A project one of my sisters commenced and handed over to me to complete for her. Japanese fabrics. It will fit the top of her double bed.

The blocks are a bit fiddly to make. The effect of reversing the alternate block really adds some appeal to the design. I really felt quilting was needed on the blocks and quilted a Japanese motif which I really like.

Something a little different today; no borders.

Oh so pretty! I think the light blue sets it off beautifully.
