    I try to use my patterns at least twice. Patterns from books I tend to only do once. Patterns with templates, depending on the ease, a few times in different sizes (for instance, Apple Core about 6 times now).
    Current piecing: Zig Zag quilt & LOTL (HSTs done, assembling units)
    Hand piecing project: Apple core (TOP IS DONE!!!! Yay!)

    It depends how well it turned out! I'm self taught and can mess up most anything, so when one turns out as intended, making another one with different fabrics makes me feel better - assuming it turns out well too!!!

    I've only used them once because I have too many in my bucket list to do duplicates.

    If I really like a pattern, I will reuse it. Especially if it had clear concise instructions!

    I've made some patterns quite a few times. Some I couldn't wait to finish! Lol

    Use a pattern more than once

    Sometimes it's fun to see the identical pattern made into seasonal quilts. I have made a Christmas quilt and then applied the same pattern in fall colors and it looks so totally different but so beautiful. It was fun to see the blocks develop into a very different season. Some of the blocks were challenging and therefore required some thoughtful ideas putting fabrics together but it really was fun!

    Um I have about 20 3-ring binder notebooks with patterns ... do you think that's excessive?
