    Log Cabin, I keep doing them over and over. You'd think I'd actually get good at it but you'd be wrong That's why I keep trying.

    I'm making a single Irish Chain baby quilt (this is only my 6th quilt) and it's been a lot of fun. I will be using this pattern again for a wedding gift next year.

    although i seldom (never) make the same quilt twice---i do have a couple all time favorite blocks that i like to incorporate into my quilts when they fit in---pieced i love making Jacob's Ladder blocks-
    paper/foundation pieced I love making the Ohio star block from Carol Doaks (50 fabulous paper pieced stars) book.
    those 2 blocks make it into lots of my quilts-
    i hate making flying geese...but seem to make alot of them.

    I love Lucky Stars, have made several baby quilts and 2 Christmas ones, it works up so fast and you can make as tame or as wild as you want.

    I agree with Tartan, there are so many to try... I have only done Turning Twenty on two occasions because of a fat quarter bundle I won at a fundraiser. To date, I do not have UFO's. I made a promise to myself to finish my projects before going on to the next. I have purchased fabric for my next quilt but need to put the binding on a queen before I start cutting the next one.... let's see how long this goal lasts! LOL

    At the moment I am doing lots of charity quilts, and have discovered Missouri Stars "Double slice Layer Cake". It goes so fast, and every one looks different. I was getting teased about "Layer Cake Collection", so am now using them up for Sandy relief. I think I have done about a half dozen of these so far.

    I've made Sweet Pea by Anka's Treasures twice, and the cover quilt from Amy Ellis' Modern Basics twice. The second one always goes so much more smoothly.

    I do different patterns and love working on 'Sylvia's Bridal Sampler' from Jennifer Chiaverini. I do have the materials to do an Ohio Star. I made it last year in red and white and loved it. Now have fabrics to make it in red and gold. Hope it is as much fun as the first.

    I'm all over the place and don't like doing many patterns twice. Except log cabin and 9 patches.

    You have my admiration! ! ! One of those was enough for me. Do you piece them or appliqué or....?

Hence, I have so many UFO's and projects going. What about you? Do you have one special pattern that you like to make? Or do you think variety is the spice of life?
    I love variety. I have several things going now that are all different. A fusible block quilt, fabric covered clothesline bowls, Maple leaf mug rugs, and an art quilt. You should see my sewing room. I am not very good at keeping it in order,but I know where everything I am working on is placed. Well, not always.

    Ohio Star! Don't live in Ohio but just love the way you can change up the fabrics and triangles for different looks, yet it's fairly easy.

    I'm not sure I have a favorite, but if I need a quick project I really enjoy whipping up strip quilts. I make a lot of baby quilts, table runners, etc with scrappy strips. I also like anything raw edge applique.

    For my seasonal table runners I tend to use a disappearing nine patch. They never turn out the same.

    Warm wishes is my "go-to" pattern. It's easy to adapt to ages and tastes.

    I like one block wonders. The first one hooked me and I have made at least 8 of them. All different. Favorite one is called Fall Garden Folly. It was made with fabric that my BFF said would not work for a OBW, out of a pattern that was "too busy" and a pattern repeat that was "too small." It is beautiful and looks like a Persian rug. So glad I tried anyway.

    Pinwheels......I recently finished 3 twin size for my GDs.And even tho they are all the same color scheme they are 3 totally different quilts. Later on when they are older and not little busy pinwheels themselves they can choose their own fabrics and patterns and help with the 'building' of their own quilts. Erin is the youngest and every thing is 'built' . -and according to her Gramma 'builds' better cakes than Mom : )
