    Can you name just one?

    I was just sitting here wondering if anyone has a favorite pattern that they like to use over and over. For me it was the drunkard path. There are so many variations of it and all look different using the same block. I have 2 different ones going now. I also love a variety of patterns and like to try something new all of the time. Hence, I have so many UFO's and projects going. What about you? Do you have one special pattern that you like to make? Or do you think variety is the spice of life?
    Be the best that you can be at everything you do.

    Hands down its Log Cabin.. for some reason I always have scraps that are 1 1/2 inch width.. perfect for log cabins. So many ways to place the blocks . I make a couple of them a year.

    I've never made the same quilt twice, but baskets are my favorite type. I've probably done about 10 different basket quilts, mostly applique, but I've also got Eleanor Burns' Grandmothers Garden in the still piecing pile.
    I've also got lots of basket orphan blocks when I was just in the mood to make a basket, or trying out different patterns.

    ​I don't think I've ever made the same pattern twice. There are just too many I want to do on my list and I know I'll never get to them all because QB members keep posting new ones I want to try!

    I keep making Attic Windows and Bento Box, even though I have a few others on my to-do list and even have the fabric purchased for them.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I don't have a go to pattern but I love to do quilts with different sampler blocks. I guess I am easily bored. Lol

    Variable star over and over. All gifts - I never kept one. I would love to play with all the amazing layouts and variations on log cabin. Only problem is, I really hate to piece the blocks. LOL

    I love the Drunkard's Path block, too, but gosh, to pick a favorite would be impossible.

    I've made a few Log Cabins and three Wickedly Easy. There are so many more that I want to do, though - I don't want to do any more repeats unless I need to make something fast and I'll drag out Wickedly Easy, again.

    I have only made the same pattern twice and that is because I bought 2 identical quilt kits for gifts. I like to try something different each time I make a quilt. I think that if I was to make the same pattern again it would be a snowball quilt. I like to do baby quilts and think the snowball block is perfect for baby quilts.
