Do you EQ?  I do and I love it.  Gone are the days of drawing out all my applique patterns full size by hand.  From time to time I will be adding EQ files, for quilts or just blocks, here for you to download.  Not all designs will be applique, but it is one of my favorite things to do so bits of applique sneak in to even my pieced projects regularly. 

You MUST have EQ in order to download the designs.  The designs on the EQ pages are not available as pdf files.  They are in various versions of EQ since I have used EQ5, EQ6 and EQ7 over the years.  There are no instructions included, only the EQ files.   If you don’t have EQ I’m sorry, but writing instructions takes a LONG time and cuts into time that I could  and would rather be quilting (or playing in EQ).   The verison of EQ that the design was done in is noted by each design.  

Please respect copyright; just because these designs are offered free doesn’t mean they aren’t governed by copyright laws.  These patterns are for your personal use, to make as  a gift for someone or they may be made for charitable purposes or you may sell a quilt made from them but not mass produce.  The files or printed patterns from these files are not to be used or distributed  in any fashion and should not be shared via email – they are for the downloader’s personal use only and anyone else wanting a copy should be directed here to download their own file.

Be sure to save the file to your computer.  The patterns are here today but may be removed at any time. I will not individually email files to anyone.   Just click on the name of the quilt name or block name to open the link.  If you find a link that is not working properly, please let me know and I will investigate.

If you make a quilt from one of these designs or use the blocks, I hope you’ll share a photo of it with me so I can post it on my blog.


A note about the final skinny border added to the designs – this is just the binding area.  I like to see what the quilt will look like totally finished so usually add that skinny border to represent the binding.


  1. I am a new subscriber introduced by Deb Webber, who is wonderful about sharing her finds. I am so happy to be part of your following. Thank you.

  2. Can’t seem to get my name on your mailing list. I don’t have a website. Is that necessary?

    I am interested in downloading the new design you created and don’t know how to go about it. Hopefully I can figure it out.

    • Carole are you talking about Frozen Delights? Click on the icon of the quilt in the right sidebar or go to the PAGES list and find it there. It will open the page with all the pdf files for the patterns.

  3. Thank you Denise. I am not one of the ladies that sent u an Email. I could not figure it out, so I just gave up on it. I am in the process of D/Ling instructions now, however
    what I really wanted – I cannot have, the darling little border that you say is to take the place of the binding. I just love it. Is there anyway that I could get it I would surely
    appreciate it. You came down a little strong in you comment, but some people don’t
    realize all you do. I still admire how you manage to get everything done and hold down a job too. Oh, yes, where I go, My crochet goes. Now, I guess I am in the category of the ones that make it a long day for you haha, Sorry , I am on my way to Time Out. I so enjoy your articles, and I did get a big kick out of your email today.

    • Esther – Your comment is left on the Free EQ Download page – if that is where you were looking for the free PDF files you would not find them there. Free EQ files can only be downloaded if you have Electric Quilt software. Regular PDF downloads are found as explained previously.
      I’m confused by your reference to the “darling little border that you say it to take the place of the binding.” I don’t know what design you are talking about. If you are referring to the general note on the EQ download page that states:
      A note about the final skinny border added to the designs – this is just the binding area. I like to see what the quilt will look like totally finished so usually add that skinny border to represent the binding.

      I added that information since I had some people asking about measurements for those borders thinking it was a final little border on the quilt. As it states above, it is


      truly a border – it is simply showing how the projects looks completed with the binding on the edge. So you simply add binding to your project.
