    Dear Jane (Jane A. Stickle quilt) is actually a collection of sampler blocks.

    there are so many how can you actually choose? i love 'storm at sea' blocks...i've seen some awe inspiring pineapple block quilts...there are some beautiful log cabin blocks...baltimore album quilts will take your breath away- I LOVE LONESTAR & MARINER'S COMPASS quilts...there are $100,000 whole cloth quilts....
    impossible to only have 1 (all time favorite) mainly because i may see one that takes my breath away & believe in the moment that is the most beautiful quilt i've ever seen- then a month later see one somewhere else that knocks my socks off!

    I think it totally depends upon the fabric. I've seen simple patterns, turned into gorgeous quilts. I've also seen wonderful patterns, made to look hideous, with the wrong fabrics/colors. Guess it's true that "beauty is in the eye of the beholder."

    There are so many I love I would hate to have to choose just one. I agree with Neesie it is how it is used and the artistic use of colors and fabrics that make a beautiful quilt.

    Right this minute I have to say I love New York Beauties. I made some blocks years ago and I signed up for a paper piecing class so I can relearn to make them. I just think they are gorgeous. I'm sure there are so many more beautiful blocks out there, but I'm thinking about the ones that I made. I think paper piecing makes blocks look stunning, but I don't do it. That's why I'm taking this class. I really want to get into paper piecing. I want to be accurate, also.

    I agree completely! When asked which is my favorite, it is either the one I'm working on, one I just finished or one that I'll be starting soon. Though I have to admit to being partial to anything with an 8 pointed star!
    Mistakes are just opportunities to invent a new quilting technique!

    I think DJ is a Dear Jane quilt. Just guessing from reading the board a lot. I don't think I could pick a most beautiful pattern. I am partial to so many that I have seen and know that most are way beyond me to make.

    There are too many to pick just one. I have a bucket list of several that I think are just beautiful, but Dear Jane is near the top of the list.

    It would be impossible for me to pick just one. For me, it changes rather often.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
