    I would think Double Wedding Ring or Grandmother's flower garden as both are so old.

    I kinda doubt that most log cabin quilts were made using a purchased pattern so "best selling" wouldn't apply to them. Purchased quilt patterns are a relatively new concept.

    Yes, I have to agree with the Log Cabin, as that is one of the very oldest patterns there are. Well documented in the early 1800's, and before that!!

    I remember reading somewhere in the 1990's that Eleanor Burns Log Cabin book was the best selling quilting book of all time. Not sure where I read it and it's been a while but I think she revolutionized modern quilting with that book.

    I think in the past few years, "Yellow Brick Road" is one of the most popular.

    ditto!!!

    In days of yore, patterns were not used. Quilts were just made!!! :)

    I would suspect your best selling pattern would be something relatively modern. Also, quilt patterns tend not to be individual, and more in books.

    As for the most made pattern .... that's where your Log Cabins, Dresden Plates and GFGs would likely rise to the top.

    How about all those patterns that were published in a Kansas newspaper? Was it the Kansas City Star? They published a new pattern every so often and to this day, they are highly prized patterns. These were published in the days of the Great Depression, if I am not mistaken. ( on second thought, I very well could be, it could have been during the dust bowl days, or???)

    Those were the first two patterns that came to my mind. My aunt who was THE quilter in our family did GFG and one heck of a lot of bow ties, too.

    Best selling??????????

    Now that I think about it, that would leave out some of the most cherished patterns of all time. If there were templates, they were passed down and never paid for. Not to mention the patterns in newspapers and magazines that weren't charged for.

    And at what period of time would anyone have kept track of money transactions.

    On a similar bent, I hate when the movie with the most income is touted. Cripes. I've seen Gone with the Wind a couple dozen times. Only paid to watch once. Same with Wizard of Oz. How much did it cost to go to a movie in 1939? 10cents, a quarter?? You can't buy a stick of gum for a quarter nowadays.

    I'm going to guess there are very few PAID FOR patterns of the log cabin. It is such a simple block, no pattern is needed.
