Quilted Desktops are now available!

Welcome to Piecepatcher - one Canadian quilter's website. My name is Zelma and I love quilting, digital scrapbooking and graphics, cross-stitch, Electric Quilting software, books, cats, Canada, and genealogy.  This site features quilting - I also created and manage a few non-profit websites, as well as our family's pages. 

What's here?

  • Quilted Desktops are (free) desktop wallpaper backgrounds for your computer, which I will post from time to time.  The previous series - Quilted Calendars - are no longer being designed, but are still available to download for your desktop.  After 9 years and over 100 calendars, I wanted to do something different. 
  • Sign up for my announcements group (at yahoogroups) to be notified whenever a new desktop is available.  Subscribers also have access to the subscribers-only bonus files, they may be downloadable EQ projects or layout ideas for quilt blocks from previous calendars.
  • Find out how despite being extremely busy running this business, I was able to first lose weight and then maintain it. I was lucky enough to discover a dietary supplement called Garcinia Cambogia which you can purchase at http://www.garciniacambogiaincanada.com/where-to-buy-it/. Without it, my weight loss would never happen.
  • This site also has free quilt projects and patterns, EQ ideas and shared EQ files, find quilt inspiration.
  • See some of the quilts and other things I've made in my quilt album
  • Browse some of my favourite (Canadian & EQ) quilting links
  • Follow the progress (very slow) of my "Dear Jane" quilt
  • Etceteras is my blog where I share bits and pieces of my quilting life, what I've been sewing lately, what's finished and what's planned, sometimes knitting, cross-stitch or other things I'm working on.
  • The Bookshelf is where you'll find my Amazon.ca recommendations for books that I personally own - quilting, creative stitchery, and more - as well as other selections.  Purchasing your books through my bookstore links helps to support this website and is most appreciated!
  • And here's where you can find out more about this website, including how to contact me and my privacy policy. Check below to find more great quilting sites via webrings and some links to software and other websites.

Stuff I like! - the following are not paid advertisements, and I am not affiliated with these companies,
I just really like their software, and just want to let you know about their products.

I use Electric Quilt to design all my quilts and all the quilted calendars and projects on my website, I've bought several of their software programs and fabric collections.  Great product and great support from their friendly staff.

A useful little program for organizing records, I use AZZ Cardfile for all kinds of things, from my webpage links, address books, inspiration quotes, EQ tips and ideas, quilting projects, recipes and lots more.

 Picnik! My new favourite, an online program for editing my digital pictures including those in my Picas and Facebook albums.  Easy to use!!
