    One of my most favorite quilts I have made is the quilt in my Avitar. It is called "Twice as Nice" by Glad Creations, Inc.
    I made it for DD#3 as her going away to college quilt. It is queen size and I also made 5 pillows of various sizes to go with it.
    We worked together to pick out the fabrics and she picked out the pattern from my "stash"

    I love the colors in it. It went together nicely but looks really complicated. I have had so many complements on that quilt.

    I hope to make it again with a little more green in it, someday!

    It would have to be the one I made for my SIL. It was also my #2 quilt I ever made.

    When I was going through my divorce my ex wasn't paying any support even though it was court ordered. Christmas was just around the corner and I was lucky if we were going to have food on the table let alone gifts under the tree. I always sewed but never quilted. My DD loved nightgowns from the time she was 2. Since I don't like fake fibers I made all her nightgowns out of flannel. DD was 9 at the time so I had lots of flannel scraps for a top and yardage the were suppose to be for nightgowns to use as a backing. I can't remember what I used for batting I might have even had batting, but I sewed her a simple patch quilt and tied it. The quilt was her Christmas gift, she is now 24 I came across the quilt last week, she had packed it way a few years ago. I want to wash it and repair it if need be. I think she would really like to have it at this time in her life. This quilt symblolizes to me that even in the hardest of times a simple quilt made with love is all that is need to make it through another day. It was on that quilt that I hand embroidered a red heart with the year in the middle. Every quilt I have made for my children since that one all have a red heart.

    This is my favorite quilt that I made. I had a ton of fun making it. I couldn't find a picture of it on my den wall but this will suffice I think.
    It is called "Just John." You may have to squint a bit since it is like pointillism and this picture is a bit too close.

    It would be quilt #2. I made it for my son about six years ago. He picked the pattern and fabric colors.

    Thank you. I put the photo in photoshop and used the mosaic feature. Then just took it line by line and fussy cut my fabric so that I had the shading where I needed it. I used all batiks. I also cut my binding so that it matched the fabric on the outside. I didn't want a "frame" around it.

    After struggling with HST and flying geese to make a "spectacular" quilt for my grandson, I realized that my all time favorite quilt is one I did with a fabric I loved, alternating colors of 6-inch squares and a couple of borders. Also a simple design that I hand quilted.

    My favorite so far is a quilt my mom and I made together for my sister's birthday this year. It is by far the most challenging quilt I have tried, and mom stuck it out making all the flower blocks except 2 that are paper pieced...I did those 2. My sister loves Victorian looking things, and this looks great in her bedroom. It's queen bed sized. I love how it came out. The pattern came out of a QuiltMaker magazine issue.

    It's really called "Mary's Garden"...fat fingers!!

    Oh this is a fun thread! Here is my very first big quilt, made for my son and his wife for a wedding gift. I hand quilted it and thought I would never finish on time! I was still sewing the day before I had to fly out. Whew!!

    Here is my favorite. It was one of my earlier big quilts. I am not very good at visualizing colors, so on this one I followed the pattern very closely and it worked

    I love the flower in the cabin...and it does look like the one in the book I bought. You did a great job. I have made this quilt 3 or 4 times, but had to enlarge the pieces by 1/8 or 1/4 in to be able to handle them. I also had one of my quilted in circles.

    I'm not sure if I have a favorite, but I think this is the most appreciated quilt I have ever made and given away.
    I made this for my grandson to mark a very important event in his life.

    I think it is PATCHWORK BOOK BY PAM BONO "QUICK ROTARY CUT QUILTS".

    I gave all my quilt books to my sister so can't check my copy, but did a search and found an old listing on ebay for this.

    I guess it would be the top I just finished, and am getting ready to hand quilt it. Lots of pieces, and loads of fun. Also my first 2 color quilt.

    I love this quilt. It was a challenging pattern with all the individual circles sewn together and when you look up close, not all of the circles are 100% round. BUT: I found the perfect use for one of my favorite fabrics; I got to use a rainbow of colored FQs.; the white fabric was my grandmother's linen (she died in 1960).

    The name of this quilt is "3 generations" because I used my grandmother's linen, my Mom is the recipient, and I am the quilter.
