I love the old fashioned hand stitched Cathedral Window, maybe best of all. I wish I could trust myself to start one - completely scrappy & traditional ... and NOT have it turn into a UFO!
(I have a blog with email in profile plus a couple of giveaways as well.)
Goodluck & Happy New Year, everyone!

See I messed up already! My favorite pattern is probably a simple nine patch. You can do so much with a nine patch or four patch and sometimes simple is all you need!

Gene Black said...

I love a disappearing nine-patch quilt pattern. It is easy but looks like you did a lot of work.

Yes I have a blog and my email is attached.

Thank you for hosting!

Jessica said...

Gosh, I have to pick a favorite pattern? Hhhhmmm, I'd say either Irish Chain or Buzz Saw ~ and I've never made either one! I haven't decided if I'm going to do a giveaway yet ~ I probably will! :)

R.H. said...

Not sure if you mean block pattern or commercial pattern. For a block my favorite is the 6 point star (I hand piece and learned how to do inset seams) for a commerical pattern, well it would have to be Grandmas Favorite Quilt, part pieced, part appliqued.
Happy New Year

Cindy said...

My favorite quilting pattern is the Scrappy Cabin. I can't remember who came up with the idea, but I read a tutorial online and then made a few quilts this way. Basically, you trace out a log cabin design on interfacing and use that as your foundation to piece the block.

I live in Canada, but have access to a US postal box. I hope I can enter, please :-)

Thanks,

Cindy
