To thank the blog readers for their generosity in the Joplin efforts, I wanted to design a quilt and do a quilt-along for any who want to do it with me — kind of a “thank you” gift to all the blog readers. I’ve been playing with Electric Quilt and coming up with designs and am not sure which one I’ll choose. Maybe I’ll post them as I come up with them and then in the end, we might vote and see which one to do or . . heck, I guess we could do them all. I don’t have a clue when we’ll get started . . it may not even be til after I get moved.
Here’s one of the designs I like:
Or, here’s a version in earthy tones.
What do you think about this design?
Beth in AZ says
oh I like them both! I’m hunting for my next QOV. I think this would do very nicely! But then I think I have loved every quilt you have posted! OH gee..I think I sound like a groupie! rotlf!
Beth, some say that the first step in ‘recovery’ is admitting you have a problem. 😉 You say ‘groupie’ like it’s a bad thing! 😀 LOL! Enjoy!
Beth in AZ says
LOL Ida! I think it would be a bad thing if I didn’t already know I’m NOT alone!
Sharon Spingler says
Love, love, love the earthy tones!!!!
I love the brighter colors so my eyes go to the blue, I looked at the other but just didn’t like it as much as the blue one.
I really like the setting! Two blocks alternating on point, right? I’d probably sprinkle some purple in with the earth tones; I really like purple and green together.
Thanks so much for all that you do for us and everyone. Love the red, white and blue.
I really like this quilt. Love the red, white and blue.
Love them both! You inspire me to do more playing in EQ!
Kari in UT says
I really love this pattern, I am leaning towards the blue, but if we do this pattern I will probably do it in pinks and greens, since that is my nephews new wife’s favorite colors and I owe them a wedding quilt.

I really like this design. I love earthy colors…..but I haven’t made a red, white and blue yet…..so, whichever works for me.
Jamie @ BeachHouse Quilts says
I love this one! I, too, would make the blue and red version as a QoV.
love the red, white and blue!
I love it! Especially the earthy tones.

looks like a great quilt!! Always fun to see them in different colors!
I love the earth tones version. I’ve had EQ 7 for a while now and just can’t seem to get things to go right. Of course it’s kinda hard to concentrate with all the commotion at our house.
Karen in CA says
Love them both but leaning more toward the color combos in the second one. I’ll play along with whatever design you choose.
Nancy Latham says
I too thought this would make a great QOV. I am on the look out for any pattern that works for them. Most of the ones I have made from your patterns go to QOV.
Diane Hines says
I love the design, especially the blue one; but I like almost anything that is blue.

i like the red, white and blue
and need to make it lap size so I can donate it to Ft Hood returning ill soldiers
maybe it’s my computer (it’s an old one) but some of the joinings where the dark and light blue borders of the squares come together just don’t look right; as though they are jagged, in a “streak ‘o lightening” sort of way.
the center joinings are perfect, and the sides are perfect, but the joinings of squares 1-2 and 3-4 are jagged.
since no one else commented on it, it must be my computer.
other than that, i like the design.
oh wait—i see what it is! you’ve substituted a dark blue square for the light blue square in those blocks.
not my computer after all! WHEW!
I like this design, Judy. I love the way that changing the coloration slightly for the center blocks vs. the edge blocks adds so much to the design. I’ll try to quilt along, though I’m supposed to be working on UFOs this year 😉
Nice design–I really am drawn to quilts with lots of diagonal lines in them.
I’m stunned that it has plain borders, lol!
Barbara Winkler says
I’m ready for another new one–they all seem to be Quilts of Valor these days!!
