    What Your Quilts Say About You

    I was thinking about the patterns that I like the most. Boxed Squares, Log Cabin, Trip Around the World. I believe that these patterns say that I am (or want to be) well ordered. I have never done a crazy quilt, and even when I do a scrappy quilt, I must keep some kind of order. I make sure that certain colors are near certain other ones. I cannot just throw stuff together.

    Do the patterns or colors that you pick say anything about you?

    Mine say I'm pretty square. However, I have made some crazy quilt vests that are extraordinarily pretty. Each usesdefinite colors--pink, brown, blue, etc. froggyintexas

    Boston, my quilts say the same thing about me that yours say about you. I like order in my environment and therefore in my quilts too. The idea of pulling scraps out of a bag sight unseen and sewing them into the next space makes me crazy. Just my own personal weakness.

    I think it was growing up in a large family, having four kids of my own and running a large company that made (and makes) me feel like I never quite have the control over my environment that I would like since there are too many moving parts. I try to make up for in my quilting, I guess.

    I, too, am ordered, but most of my quilts are of soft/comfort fabrics (especially flannel), so I guess that says something as well.
    Courtesy is not optional.

    Mine are very traditional, scrappy makes my eyes go crazy, upsets my balance....I like thing balanced, and organized. I particularly like it when the blocks make another pattern within the quilt. I can go with a wide color palate.

    Mine may say that I really like balance, and a good amount of organization. I have "learned" to like scrappy quilts- and mine are controlled scrappy. But I do say that I love samplers that have all kinds of sizes of blocks! They are a fun challenge to make!
    I like bright colors, or softer ones, but not muddy or drab. And love large florals too!
