    My favorite is a memory quilt made for a friend with pictures of his grandchildren.

    I made a bear's paw quilt for my nephew in the late 90's. I used the richest golds and warm browns with a fabulous bear print. The best part of all was seeing his face when he opened it!

    For me it would have to be the memory quilt I made for my younger brother after my oldest brother died. It had pictures of the stone carving my older brother had done and some pictures of the 2 of them working on stones. He asked if it was possible to make a quilt like that, then forgot about it. Almost a year later I discovered the ink jet printer fabric and made the quilt. When I gave it to him, we both cried.

    The 4 embroidered ABC baby quilts that each took 1 year to do and the one I've been working on since 2007 - a West of Baltimore (sort of - I made changes). I'm lovin' it.

    I'm so sorry to hear that. I hope making that quilt will give you some comfort.

    I hope she didn't roll over in her grave, but I machine stitched it all together, according to her plan, and hand quilted in using the Big Stitch method. I'm sure her plan was to continue hand sewing and quilting it, but I am NOT a hand quilter.
    It's my favorite
    OMG! It's gorgeous! I love it! Thanks for showing us.

    I have two favorites. First my twin size Dear Jane and the second is the first Crazy Quilt that I made. I love them both!

    Can I change my answer? I'd forgot all about what really is my favorite quilt. My (favorite) niece was born on Oskaloosa, KS & I found a pattern called "Oskaloosa Wedding Ring". So I started saving fabrics to make her a quilt when she got married. It was a large variety of navy/indigo Civil War repro prints with unbleached muslin, set block to block. I hand quilted it 1/4" around the pieces & was really happy with it. It looked old & that was what I was aiming for. She was thrilled with it & sent a picture of it in to "Quilt" magazine & they featured it. I just loved that quilt. I'm glad my niece loved it, too, & that it has a good home!
