    My favorite block is bow ties. Fast and easy. It can be controlled or scrappy. There are many layout possibilities.

    Quilting pattern or Quilt Block? If it is block I love hearts and stars of any kind!! Irish chain in any shape remain a favorite also.

    Quilting pattern would be also anything in hearts or stars.

    definitely the log cabin block and crazy quilt block, I like that they are both easy to put together and there are so many variations!

    I don't think I have a favorite ... I quilt because I like the colors and the angles and the fact that my effort produces a practical product ...
    :?: :?: :?: I would have to say whatever I am working on at the moment is my new favorite ... scrappy is the style ;-)

    While I love many, my favorite has to be log cabin and all the various ways it can be put together.

    Renee, i seem to be following you! I agree with you, the simple log cabin with all its variations is one of my very favorite patterns.

    But my all time favorites are very complicated patterns that are beautiful, and so complicated that I feel absolutely no need to do them myself! (See all the time I saved!)

    I have tons I like, but I consider the Log Cabin a real prize quilt. I love the way you can do so much with it, and I also like that it's what I call a "quilter's quilt" - I think we can appreciate them more than the average person!!

    I like log cabin, crazy quilts, quilts showcasing a needlework or applique to make. I guess you could say I like the picture (fussy cut) quilts.I love the look of the Dresden Plate. I have no desire to make the complicated angle, triangle quilts but I do appreciate the amount of work involved.

    Thanks. I always look at patterns and wonder hmmmm how can I make that doggie. Ha. Usually all it takes is using doggie fabrics. I'm a dog fabric junkie. :thumbup: I guess dog junkie anything. ;)

    There are a few that I dislike or else I have yet to see them used in a quilt that I like. There are a few that are so optically illusional (such as Tumbling Blocks and Bargello) that they make me dizzy and nauseated. I greatly admire the work, the fabric selections, the skill required to create a Bargello quilt, but they make me physically ill to look at them. I don't think I have a favorite, though, because the color choices and the block/piece layout of a quilt makes all the difference in the world. I'm not normally a big fan of Drunkard's Path in all its many layout options, but they had a DP quilt displayed on the local hospital lobby wall last year that was one of the most gorgeous quilts I have ever seen. I came back a few months later with my camera, but they had replaced that quilt with another one, dang it! I waited too long. I did a sketch when I first saw it, but the sketch is a bit "iffey".

    Pinwheel is my favorite block. I love the way they seem to be so free flowing. They remind me of the swings at amusement parks, my favorite ride for the same reason - because swings make me feel free flowing. Wheeeeeeee!! :lol: :lol:
