    Re: What is your favorite Quilt block

    I love that it looks like sashing and corner setting blocks on every one, but what an easier way to do them! I really wanted to do this layout for the D9 patch, but I didn't think I had enough 'character'
    fabric for the I-Spy part. But, I will do this version some day.

            I think they meant that they are a fan of the log cabin...

              My very favorite quilt is the log cabin; I've done several and it was the first quilt I was taught to piece by hand by my quilting granny.

              I often try to remember some of the quilts she did that I could replicate. Clam shells - oh endless long nights watching Johnny Carson and monster theatre cutting those rascals out - and she did the most fabulous fans and wedding rings. I can dream of them in my mind. I often wonder what my granny's reaction would be if she were here with me today sewing and quilting. She didn't own a sewing machine, had no clue of strip piecing, she couldn't read but studied pictures and did a durn good job of creating quilts from that. I do have one unfinished quilt she and my Poppa were working on before it died. It needs a binding and for years I have wondered what type of binding to use. Perhaps I will dig it out and post a pic. Your brilliant and creative minds may be able to help me out.

              Blessings

                That figures I'm thick skulled! I feel like an idiot. I love the grandmothers fan so much. When I saw fan my mind just took off in that direction. Forgive me.

                  My favorite to look at is the Dresden Plate. But the Log Cabin is my favorite to sew. I hope to try some new things following Jenny and using her quick and easy methods.

                    Mine would have to be Bear's Paw (it keeps getting in there somehow), Log Cabin ('specially off-centre), 54-40 or Fight (tho' must admit, not very good at it), Friendship Star and I just luuuurve EPP hexis.

                    That's a pretty hard question, middlesis, and a really good one. I suspect there will be lots more replies yet, LOL!

                      I'm having a love/hate thing with pinwheels right now, but think my favorite is the disappearing 9 patch. You get to showcase some pretty fabrics, you look like you did a lot of cutting and sewing but with the precuts it's a jiff. If you want to add some scrappiness you can do some fun borders, but I like them on their own.

                        I think my favorite block is whichever one I am working on at the moment!
                        I have made a bunch of single blocks for the "round robin" type swaps I have been in the last few years. Wit the first one, I tried to make a different block for each quilt. This was great because I could build my skills, the second swap I ended up making mostly one type of block, but used different fabrics. It was fun to see how the color play worked that way too.
