    Patterns? I have attempted to use them but when I try to follow the directions, something goes wrong. I always somehow alter them and end up with a different quilt. So I guess my answer is no I don't use the same one twice as I can't seem to even use it once. LOL And I am a pattern collector also.

    So far, I have used a very different pattern each time I have made a quilt. I enjoy the variety.

    I have made one pattern about 6 times, another about 4 and a couple 2 times. I use some others and make up my own too. Just waht strikes my fancy.

    Some favorites of mine are Trip Around the World, and the Log Cabin which I have made several of each and never get tired of them.

    Mostly I don't use a pattern, I just "wing" it. sometimes I do look at pictures.

    I have favorite patterns that I make. Different fabrics can change the pattern. Using soft colors and brights on the same pattern give it a different look.

    I have made a couple Sun Bonnet Sue quilts and Dresden Plates; although each ended up being completely different. Other than those, I tend to use a new pattern with each quilt. There are so many endless possabilities. My files are full, always saving patterns from the internet and site...then I have books and individual patterns. LOL.

    I might use it twice if I have different fabric. I like trying new patterns and techniques' some are frustrating, but when the light comes on, it brightens up my day knowing that I have mastered yet another technique!

    Humm, since I have not been quilting too awful long I have only used mine once...except for the 10 minute block patterns. But, I have a few that I will definately make again.
