The rail fence was one of my very first, and it went together so well, and can be done with so many color combos!

I really like the good old log cabin pattern. Thank you for this giveaway!

I like the disappearing nine-patch. It looks like one put a LOT of work into it, but is instead pretty easy. Always a bonus for lazy folks such as myself. :)

I'm more of an abstract pattern lover. I've currently been making quilt blocks out of my childrens old clothes, so they come out in all sort of wonderful patterns - wherever the fabric will fit and look beautiful.

This would be so fun to read to my girl. I love sewing and am wondering how to include her a little more.

Brigette Joy said...

I'm new to quilting, so I don't know the patterns. The book you are giving away sounds like a neat way to learn about them!

I love a simple nine patch because you can combine it with any other more complicated block and it still works. x

Kathy H said...

My favorite block is the Ohio star. I think it is because that is the only block I ever saw as a kid. No one I knew quilted and it was probably on a store quilt.

Annie said...

I love the log cabin block pattern- classic, but can be updated in really fun ways! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

Genevieve P said...

I like log cabin. So many variations on a very simple block!

I love the log cabin. It is so much fun to make, and it is fairly easy. I also really like the disappearing nine patch!

Kristen said...

Of all that I have ever made the humble nine patch is my favorite. Scrappy and fun!

Holly U said...

I'd love to have this for my son, since he sees me sewing and quilting. My favorite was Celtic knotwork done with bias tape. Turned out great!

T. Rehder said...

My favorite block is the pinwheel, simple and classic!

MissMary said...

My favorite block is the Cathedral Window. The first quilt I ever made was a hand-pieced CW, and I chose it because the thought of "real" quilting intimidated me. Also, my mom made one when she was in her early 20s. I wanted to follow her path!

Lindsay said...

I love HST. They are so versatile.

♥Duff said...

My favorite block is the Ohio Star! I love it regular or wonky!

Nine patch has a certain attraction for me and its not just because its straight forward, I think there is something deeper, yet to discover what though. Enjoying your blog and thanks for giveaway.

Ohhh! What a Fabulous giveaway!
