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.



A gift for the toddler son of a family friend.











The completed quilt.



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.



I decided to make one of these in my favourite style; scrappy. I have been working on it for some months now. It is a birthday gift for one of my sisters who loves orange. It will fit on her queen size bed beautifully. I must admit I’m quite taken with it.
