    I do make different versions of one pattern -- but color is not the only thing I change, I usually change some of the elements of the quilt as well.

    Once I make something once the challenge is gone. Only the Baltimore blocks do I sometimes use more than once. Such a waste of money since patterns are pricey but I can't design a pattern so I have to purchase them.

    I think I have made 6 OBW because they all turn out so different. I have also made several 9 patch pizzaz quilts. Both are not difficult. Right now I have a spider web quilt half way done. It is great using up stash fabrics. I may make another of those.

    I have a file of purchased patterns of favorites that I fall back on when I need a pattern and use them several times for a quick quilt. I like to make my own applique patterns and I have a file that is 6 inches thick of patterns since I started quilting.

    Most of the time "once" except for log cabin or 9 patch, there is just so many ways to set a log cabin I think one could do them hundreds of times and still not repeat a layout. With 9 patch I usually put the 9 patch in the center of a block and then piece triangles or rectangles or both to change the look.

    Sometimes I use a pattern more than once. I made a cute dog quilt for my dd friend; another of her friends (different group) got the same quilt in a different color. I have fabric for 1 more and hope to make it for my dgd. Guess if I like the pattern and it is fun, I'll use it again. If I don't enjoy making the quilt, I'm ready to move on to a different pattern.

    So far I've used some of my patterns more than once, but I get excited about trying something new. Since I want to try new patterns, I think I might try a sampler soon.

    I have made this Turning Twenty quilt at least 10 times, it is very fast, easy and you can put any colors in it. I made it 7 times one christmas for the grandkids in the family. I love the pattern and also bought another of her books.

    I have too many patterns collected to use the same one over. I will never get to make them all if I use one pattern over and over. However, I do have one pattern that I like that I have used more than once.

    Depending, sometimes I'll use the pattern more than once if I find fabric that cries out for that pattern. I have made chair cushions for myself and my Mom using the same pattern for each set. No, I have 4 chair cushions for my dining chairs of 1 pattern, 6 chair cushions of another pattern for my Moms dining chairs and 2 chair cushions of another pattern for my kitchen chairs. I thought about using different patterns and the same fabric but couldn't picture all the pieces.

    Never have purchased a pattern....Love templates - make my own - and go from there. Seems more creative.

    I plan on only one use and then find myself making the same thing 4 or 5 years later and in different colors and enjoying the process I made 4 watercolor quilts 2 king 1 queen and 1 twin and that was way too often.
    I'm an obsessive compulsive quilter and batik aholic. I make only king size quilts.

    Some of you have said you collect patterns in a notebook. Mine are in a file cabinet, have more to file and then there are the quilting magazines with tabs hanging off the sides and then there are the ones I find online. The supply of new ideas never ends. I will live forever if I make all the ones I want to make.

    I collect Sunbonnet Sue patterns and they are all different and I mix&match from different books for my small quilts. As the saying goes"I don't do bed quilts" instead of windows lol.

    If I really like a pattern I will make it multiple times - using different fabrics, with slight change ups to make it mine.
