Playing with Ideas

I have been playing around with some idea for quilts using only two shapes that can be cut with the Accuquilt Go cutter (but you CAN cut them by hand if you don't have the cutter.)  The two shapes are the triangle (6.5 inch) and the Chisel which is 3.5 by 6.5 inches.)
So without further ado here are the images exported from my old version of EQ. (if only someone would take pity and send me EQ version 6 or 7.)
First is "Chiseled in Fabric"





















Next is "Whirling Chisels"


I am thinking Accuquilt should hire me to make patterns for them. What do you think?

I think your right AccuQuilt should hire you..!

Jackie said...

They are great!! You know you can submit patterns to them. Make sure though that they publish them as yours.

Patty said...

Very cool like your designs.

Barb said...

I think they should...but you have to write the directions too...

Pat said...

I'm sure you could also write the directions quite easily. These are wonderful patterns, Gene!

Maggie Dragonmoon said...

Yes, Accuquilt should hire you. Your patterns are lovely!

Melissa said...

Accuquilt is missing the boat if they don't!

Greg said...

I'm thinking you should cut several kits and sell them... And send one to me for giving you the idea!!!! And yes, Accuquilt should hire you!! Nice designs.

Barbara said...

Incredible how many design ideas can come from the same elements. Great that you are having so much fun and relaxation with this!

they are both great but the second one really catches my eye!

Love your designs, and yes you should sell your patterns. Isn't the GO the most wonderful thing! It sure makes my life easier.

I like the second design. It resembles pinwheels and those are my favorite.

Accuquilt should trade you dies for patterns :) Writing the directions is the hardest part for me.

Hi there Gene....yep, Accuquilt do need to invite you to do patterns for them....the ones above are great....and the fact that they can be cut by hand for those of us who aren't fortunate enough to have a GO in our list of tools/supplies! Hugs Naomi

Wow! I like both of them. Yes, write some directions and send them to AccuQuilt. You are just having way too much fun!

My favorite is chiseled fabrics. Like those EQ layouts you have made.
