    I love all quilts, but I tend to lean towards folk art, theme or country styles. I love applique either hand or machine and seems like every quilt I make winds up with some type of applique on it. I really want to try to move myself forward into different styles. I love the Civil War and also the 1930's quilts. I think we all have our own styles even if we don't realize it!

    I think my style is determined by the particular project I am working on at the moment, as I think I like all styles, although I'm not good at art quilts, but don't really want to be pigeonholed into one style from another.

    I have done traditional when I first started (did the Thimbleberries clubs for a couple of years), probably did some contemporary, and have done a couple of my own layouts. It depends on your personal choices, not everyone falls into one category.

    I guess I make more Traditional quilt than any other type, but I like all different kinds. I love to try new patterns. I agree with others....whatever catches my eye.

    Like you, I love them all. I'm currently loving scrappy patchwork.

    I bounce between "standard looking" quilts, landscape and a few "art". It depends on for whom I am making a quilt or my mood, usually for whom. All are fun and fulfilling for me.

    Don't think I really have a style. I see a quilt or pattern I like and make it. Different patterns appeal to me at different times; for different people, etc

    I love modern quilts. The ones where there's a vastness of one color and in a corner is some blocks. I like that look. I like Elizabeth Hartman's style of quilts. She is so awesome!! That's the modern I love. I also love civil war, traditional, applique, paper pieced, English paper piecing, almost everything BUT I'm not crazy about quilts that people paint and glue things to. I'm not explaining myself well, but it's like they are painting on a canvas and calling it quilting. How can someone compete with a great painter who decides to paint on fabric and call it a quilt? I don't think it's quilting...it's painting. Call it what it is. IMHO!!!!!

    I don't know. If I see something I like and think I can do it, then I would go for it. So far, I guess I have done traditional.

    I do whatever strikes my fancy for the moment, or perhaps what "style" the recipient may like. I do lean towards traditional, and paper piecing. I love intricate challenges as well! Not much on the modern things tho.
    I enjoy seeing everyone's different creations, whatever style they may be!

    I belong to a modern quilt guild. We all love modern but make anything that strikes our fancy. There are too many beautiful quilts out there to limit ourselves to one style.
