    For sale, or for hire... or for gifting?

    Or is each one a unique creation?

    I never make the same quilt twice. I must get bored very easily.

    When I find a pattern I enjoy I'll make several. Its amazing how different fabrics will make the pattern look unique.

    I have made the same pattern more than once, just in different colors.

    I try not to. Which is pretty bad considering the amount we all spend on patterns some times.

    good question! I usually don't make the same quilt twice...except for the turning twenty that is so versatile and quick.

    I have only done the same pattern a few times, usually each of my quilts are 'unique'. ;)

    If I like a pattern, I may make several. Just use different fabrics, colors, and quilt a different size.

    I've made several Lone Stars - but trying something different in the setting each time. Yeah, they have the same star, but no 2 really look anything alike.

    Also Blooming 9-patches - more than a dozen as those are so much fun (for me) working to get the right fabrics. And those can end up with totally different looks - kids brights, elegant, oriental, etc.

    I actually got sick of doing 9 patches so I used the fabrics chosen for my last Blooming to make a Lone Star. ;-) The star is done but it's in my UFO pile (for over 4 years :roll: ) while I ponder the setting.

    I've made several RainyDay quilts - again, just testing how the the different fabrics can work.

    I don't ever use "collections" of fabrics, or charm packs or layer cakes. Way too matchy matchy for me. I much prefer making my own fabric choices. Totally.

    I have a fabulous baby quilt I make all the time because it's perfect and graphic and ignores whatever 'decor' the parents might have in mind. ;-) And I always, always know I have the fabrics needed on hand.

    With the exception of the baby quilt (which can look similar even though each has different fabrics), I consider each one unique.

    I made this quilt twice - http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-52342-1.htm

    The first time was for my oldest DD - then for my youngest DD - story inside of the original post.
