    Favorite quilt?

    I am working my way towards making my first "real quilt". I am hoping you have something stuck away in your files that will inspire me. I have nothing but time, so difficult is not a problem. What is your favorite?

    I love the wavy log cabin. I made two of them for my two daughters for Christmas.

    There are so many that I love and so many that I would love to try. I prefer the traditional blocks and will never have enough time in this lifetime to do all that I want to try. One that I have enjoyed making as a beginner and "advanced beginner" is the disappearing nine patch. There are so many possibilities. One that I did was done with the corner blocks "fussy cut." Loved that one. Also love the fence rail and Warm Wishes. Good luck and happy quilting.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    I've made a few trip around the world quilts and they are so pretty when done. Also like the ohio star.

    I love making so many quilt blocks...but have to say that 9-patches are my favorites...so much you can do with them. One of my favorite quilts is a double 9-patch with the blocks set on point.

    I would take a look at the quilt gallery on this board:
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...y-t189958.html
    Scroll thru and see if anything piques your interest.
    I know my current favorite is the one I'm working on now!

    My last quilt was a log cabin quilt. Originally, I wasn't really into log cabin quilts, but I was making it for someone else so it didn't matter. But as I made the quilt, I feel in love with the way it looked. And the fun part is there is so many ways you can design it and arrange it, the possibilites are endless.

    The quilt I always I wanted to make if I ever took up quilting was the Jewel Box. I did and I did - took up quilting and made a Jewel Box in jewels tones on black. I loved it, but then, I loved the Carpenter Star and several others, too.

    My favorite quilt is my first real quilt, a sampler -- it is done with a peach colored background and a brown floral for the appliques/block pieces -- the blocks were all traditional -- I bought an instruction booklet for this sampler quilt and learned as I went -- I would love to make another one!!

    I think the one pattern I love the most is a Carpenter's Star. Mariners Compass is also great. Drunkard's Path makes a interesting quilt. Check out Quilter's Cashe, you will find lots of free quilt patterns. Have fun!

    It is hard to say what my favorite is. But I have made three that are my favorites...I did a twin size Dear Jane quilt, A Crazy Quilt and my latest a paper pieced wall hanging using all Batiks which currently is my Avatar. I still plan to make a New York Beauty.

    Curved log cabin is my all time favorite because it has unlimited design possibilities.
    Here are a few to give you an idea of what I mean. Also, google curved log cabin quilts images.
