    Cool

    I like to take blocks, items, scraps of stuff no one wants to use and make them into charity quilts. I dislike patterns...they are the bulk of my UFOs.

    I really like to try lots of different things and enjoy creating my own patterns. But if I need something quick, I have made Bonnie Hunter's Star Struck pattern several times. It's easy, uses up my scraps, and I have yet to be disappointed with the results.

    Guess I would have to say the "I Spy" - love the hexagon style, the patchwork style - even the rail fence version. My favorite is the one that make kids and adults smile and look at the various fabrics.

    Log cabin,9 patch and Bento Box. All great scrap quilts sometimes the 9 patch sections are leaders and enders, so I get 2 quilts done at once.

    I like DP9, Lemoyne Star and 10 minute blocks. You can see I go for the easy ones!! Someday I will have to tackle one that takes a lot of time. But usually am in such a hurry to start another quilt that I can't wait to finish the one I'm working on.
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    I usually gravitate to a new pattern each time, but for some reason I had several requests for this same pattern for several baby quilts. They generally have a diaper bag to match (as seen in one of the pics). Luckily it is a fairly easy pattern that I found in an old magazine (I think it was a McCall's Quilting from a few years back). It's amazing how much difference the choice of fabrics can change the looks. I love making the prairie points and they look harder than they are.

    I am new to quilting, just a few months ago started doing it serious. I would start a top and run out of fabric and put it away for sometime years. But the since about 3 months ago I've completed one log cabin queen size quilt, finished just yesterday a wavy log cabin top and almost finished a second wavy log cabin top. Love doing them.

    I have made "yellow brick road" by Atkinson designs many times, usually for baby quilts.

    I don't understand "leaders and enders". I have seen that term more than once in the last few days. Could someone please explain?

    I have SO many favorites....and so many on my "to do" list but I love making "trip around the world" and "twisters"
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    I have the Fab Five by Abbey Lane quilts several times. Love how I can applique, embroidery, and change the size easily. Just a fun quilt for me.

    I get a set of wild modern fat quarters once a year (fabric store sale) and I usually make a Turning Twenty to showcase the fabrics. So far I have three done and love them. The fabrics are so unusual that the pattern is really secondary.

    I also have made more than one Buggy Barn Angel quilt. It is a great one to give to someone with a health crisis or a special need. Nine angels and a border with our without the words (faith, hope and love) is a perfect larger lap quilt. Or make 12 angels and put it on a bed.

    Peggi, Thanks a million for your answer. I have been thinking about this for the last few days, and thought nobody would see my question because it was posted very late in the day, and I didn't think anyone would see it anymore. I don't know my way around this site very well, so I don't know about saving threads, and I don't know where these threads come from. They are obviously somewhere else for a day or two before they get here.

    But I knew what leaders and enders were. I could figure that out. We call them "startie-stoppies" or "spiders". But I couldn't figure out what that had to do with 9-patches coming out the end of your quilt. You have been super helpful. I just get such a thrill when I have an Ah-Haaa moment and have learned something new. I love the system of sewing something instead of just putting thread on a scrap.

    Now I will see if I can find out how to PM you so you can read this.
