    This thread is truly inspirational!

    Daffy Daphne, I think your quilt is amazing and very beautiful! Is that the apple core template? How small are your pieces?

    I have special feelings for this top. It was my first time working with batiks and I felt they had such a primal energy.

    I like to make lists. I also like to leave them laying on my sewing table and then guess what's on the list while at the fabric store. Fun game.

    Oh, I love that! Very modern!. You broke all the rules....and with bright colors! I'm not sure how you made it come out right. Did you draw it out on paper first and do the math?

    Very pretty! I love the pattern, the fabrics/colors, and the way you arranged the blocks.

    I love this one, too. It reminds me, somehow, of a tiled Moroccan wall. And I love the way you quilted it.

I said, "Oh no not that one. I have the perfect quilt for you." I showed him the panel and he said yes of course. (He's a native Texan, and proud of it.)

    I found a photo online of this quilt in different colors and copied it. It was a bear. I think I made it three times. Getting all the pieces of the panel sashed and lined up was tough. I would think I had it right and then I would sew it together. It was either crooked or not even or something. So, I'd rip and start over. The stars were my first attempt at applique. I only made them twice.

    (Please don't post my quilt to pinterest.)

    I do not have a photo of it after it was quilted. I sent it to the longarmer.

    As a native Texan myself, this has to get my all time vote! It's gorgeous! Perfect! So Texas! I absolutely love it. Lucky spouse!


    All the quilts shown are lovely. I began commenting before seeing them all -- my bad -- but just let me say they are all beautiful. Exquisite! You should all be so proud!

    This is one of my favorites. Simple but very effective and includes some of my favorite colors.

    Love seeing everyone's favorite quilt. I don't think I could pick a favorite of mine ................ but if I had to, I think my youngest daughter's wedding quilt and maybe Allietare (my first Bonnie Hunter mystery) would be favorites. Here is Rachel and Nate's wedding quilt. And the next is Allietare, my other favorite ..........

    Thank you, SusieQOH, joe'smom, and Friday1961. joe'smom, I drew off the template from one of Marti Michell's books and cut the cores out individually. They finish at 5" long.

    All these beautiful quilts are inspiring.

    This is my favorite. I haven't made a whole lot of quilts but have done some that are far bigger and more intricate but I like the way this one came out. It was for a pregnant colleague who didn't yet know the sex of her baby, hence the color choice.

    This is a great idea for a thread, thank you. I'm enjoying seeing some beautiful quilts and also the wide diversity of what makes a favorite.

    I would have to say one of my most favorite quilts, I only have a photo of the applique that was part of a whole quilt that I forgot to photograph, and now do not know where it lives, but the family fought over it after the recipient passed. The request was for a “redneck” quilt featuring hunting, fishing, and and trucks.
    Here is my first applique project, done with Elmer’s school glue, and hand stitching.
    It is a Robyn Pandolph design that was free online, with some design decisions by me (the yo-yos).

    Is this a string quilt pattern called Starry Night? I saw one in Berlin, Ohio, on a navy background in 2011,and I have been looking for the pattern ever since.

    I think this one is my favorite quilt because of the reaction I got when I gave it to my great niece who has Down's Syndrome and doesn't talk much. Her dad, my nephew, told me Winnie the Pooh was her favorite so I found a panel for her quilt. It was for her graduation but I couldn't make the open house so I took to her later - so glad it worked out that way. I told her I brought her a gift so she sat down on the floor in front of me. The quilt was folded so I shook it out and laid it on the floor in front of her. She pulled it up onto her lap, touched each of the characters and said their names. She sat there admiring and fondling her quilt for 45 minutes and then folded it and took it to her bedroom. I knew it had been a hit! The next day my nephew sent me a picture - she had spread the quilt out on top of her bed and slept all night under it! She makes her bed every morning then puts her quilt on top. My niece (her aunt) also sent me message about what a wonderful gift it was.
