Virtual Quilts

I can spend lots of time making virtual quilts. Electric Quilt software is a fun tool for narrowing down my decisions. Here are just 3 of many quilt plans I came up with recently.

 I am trying to come up with a plan to use a few of my orange fabrics. I have a few in batik besides these.

 And I wouldn't necessarily use blue with the orange. It just offers good contrast on my computer screen. The plans above aren't final either. The ultimate size would be based on how much I like how it is going. Unless I decide to keep it small for a sample for my lectures. These are all Thirtysomething designs, so that's probably a better plan.
 I have been doing some real quilting too. Both in the studio on an old top and the sewing room. I have a few more Flying Geese units left to make for the Birds-in-the-Air ARE Flying Geese quilt.

I just pulled a bunch of oranges too. I want to make a series of one color quilts but want to add some other colors for a second quilt. I'll be checking to see what you do.

What a lovely batch of oranges! Sure to make a juicy-beautiful quilt.
