  1. I haven't really quilted in quite a while. I'm so excited I found this giveaway though! I can't find it now, but I believe the pattern I really liked once was called stepping stones, it was fairly simple but turned out to be a great quilt.

  2. I love quilts with triangles. Flying geese are probably my favorites, but half-square and quarter-square triangles rank up there.


    My next favorite block(s) are mariner's compasses. I bet that those would be tough for AccuQuilt to make, tho. Ah well. Maybe this post will challenge them to make them! :)

  3. Hi Nicole, wow what a great giveaway! My favorite shapes are the basic geometric ones, squares, strips, triangles, circles, stuff like that, especially since I'm still a beginning quilter. Oh, oh - my fingers are crossed, wish me luck!

    p.s. I love your Tonka & The Stars pillow, so pretty!

  4. I always find myself most captivated by pinwheel quilts

    ReplyDelete
  5. I like square and a square blocks 'cause they leave room for some embroidery if I want.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Even though I secretly hate to make half-square triangles, I am drawn to pinwheel quilt patterns. Scrap Bag Surprises is my recent favorite pattern collection - love how the patterns are written for yardage to buy or using up scraps!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I love flying geese - I recently bought 'Flying Colors' and I'm hoping to learn about making curved flying geese!

  8. My current favorite block is Jacob's Ladder. I'm making them from my stash at the moment. Kathie L in Allentown

  9. My favorite block is the pinwheel and the log cabin. I had my quilting bee make me blocks with a pinwheel in the middle of the log cabin and it came out so great! I love them. Thanks for the chance to win! rebeccajoypowers@gmail.com

  10. I am currently obsessing about the very traditional Bear Paw block. I know I must make something with it! Would love to win this thanks for the opportunity.

  11. I’m a little obsessed with the double wedding ring right now, because I have a great idea, but am not looking forward to cutting it all out (hello, Baby Go!). But beyond that, I really like playing with pinwheels. They’ve made it into four! of the recent quilts I’ve been planning to start.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I really like some of the modern quilting designs that are popular not really sure the names of blocks but more like contrasting colors like neutrals with bits of bright point of color scattered. MomtasticStitchery at gmail (just in case)

  13. Whoa! What a t-riffic give-a-way! I just recently stitched swap blocks in the 4-patch chain pattern and loved how they looked. Thanks for the chance to win! sxygrndma48@yahoo.com

  14. I am in love with Amish Stars - they are mainly constructed of Half Square and Quarter Square Triangles - which is perfect if you have a GO! Baby.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I would love, love, love to make a lonestar someday, but I am terrified of all that precise piecing and cutting!

  16. My favorites are the scrolly ones: http://www.fatcatpatterns.com/Southern%20Gentleman.html

    I haven't actually made a quilt yet, probably because of this. I'm not really intersted in sewing straight lines, but I'm not good at anything else. :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I've never made a quilt, but I love looking at hexagons so I guess that's my favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Either flying geese or log cabin. They both allow you to showcase a great combo of colors.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I just found a block design called Solomon's Star, it's my current favourite. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love coin quilts, and anything with pinwheels. Love your site!

  21. I was reading your tutorial yesterday thinking ...boy would this be a fun thing to have in a perfect world!! well...maybe a nice thing will happen!! I think my all time favorite is grandmothers flower garden...I always feel happy when I see it!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I've never met a quilt pattern I didn't like but I have a bunch of applique designs floating around in my head right now.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love the double wedding ring. Thanks for having this wonderful giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love geometric patterns, circles are my favorite on quilts at the moment.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I don't have a favorite pattern, because I love almost all of them. Right now, I'm very interested in doing a drunkard's path quilt like the one that was shown in the accuquilt newsletter. It was done in 2 different sizes, and in solids, and it was very contemporary and traditional at the same time.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Great giveaway! My favorite quiltpattern is Storm at sea! I am planning to sew it in the near future!
    Hugs form Kirsten in Oslo!

  27. I love the churn dash and hope to make several in different styles, but I would love to win the Go Baby so I can try the apple core quilt!! Thanks for the chance!

  28. Why I am obviously in love with Scrap Vomit I see myself on the verst of an HST binge.

  29. I'm always drawn to star quilts and my current favorite s a block called love in a mist. Thanks for the chance to win this baby,

  30. I think my favorite block is this one - its an overgrown star - so simple and comes out so pretty!! http://www.sameliasmum.com/2011/06/starflower-block.html

    Enjoy!!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yay, another chance to try to win this wonderful baby for my sis. She has always been my champion, encouraging me to do more to prove I really could. To point out to me my failures are not always that but a new and quirky way of doing things. She loves to quilt but her hands are wearing out and this would be a huge help to her. My way of giving back.

    ReplyDelete
  32. My very most favorite traditional quilt block is called Interlaced Star - it lets you do lots of overlaid transparency affects with color.

    :) Linda

    ReplyDelete
  33. I just started quilting, so I don't have a favorite yet. I have bookmarked a bunch of quilts with circles on them, so maybe that is what I lean towards.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I would love to make a hexie quilt, but the thought of cutting out a bajillion hexies isn't very appealing. With the baby Go, it would be much easier.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I really love log cabin blocks, not really new but a goodie in my opinion.

    ReplyDelete
  36. My favorite has to be pinwheels . I just love them!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love any kind of block/quilt that has stars, either applique or traditional styled (like LeMoyne). If I had a GO! Baby I could totally make stars galore! Thanks for the chance to win! :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. My favourite is the double wedding ring block!

    ReplyDelete
  39. WOW!!! Fantastic give away!!
    I love kaleidoscope blocks ;)

    ReplyDelete
  40. How can you pick just one block when there are so many to choose from. I think I would pick a very basic 4 patch or 9 patch because you can cut it up, match it with a flying geese to make a star or a snowball. You can do so much with a very simple block.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Wowwww! What a wonderful giveaway. Thank you so much for this chance to win that beauty :)
    My favourite quits patterns are made with litlle squares and pinwheels.
    I learnt a lot about patchwork with Bonnie (http://quiltville.com/)have a loot at her website is fabulous.
    Thanks again. I will keep my fingers crossed

    ReplyDelete
  42. Thanks a lot for this chance! My favourite patterns for quilts are triangles to make pinwheels. Ana

  43. Lovely giveaway! I love log cabin blocks, very conservative, I know. I love the modern twist on log cabins.

    ReplyDelete
  44. oh, how exciting! I really haven't got a favorite quilt patten (to be honest) ~ really like to pick the fabric and let it 'speak' to me ~ then I figure what pattern would look best. However, I do love all the ways log cabin can be made and triangles are fun too.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm still pretty new to quilting but right now it's a 9 patch because of the versatility. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love Dresden plate!!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love the plain and under-rated half square, as the combinations are endless!! I also really like the sawtooth star as well as the Arkansas Traveler Block ... Eeeeeek!! I'm so excited ... Thanks for the chance for this!!

    MWAH!!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I love the pinwheel pattern, I made a pinwheel blankie for my daughter whilst I was pregnant. I really like the 9 square pattern and I adore the double wedding ring pattern but cant face cutting all those pieces ( so hope I win.

    Loving your new Tonka and the stars pattern, cant wait to make one for my daughter as she loves the moon.

  53. I have only been quilting for 2 years. I started with simple quilts. The more i am learning the more i love the traditional style quilting. I love the paper piecing style from the 1920's.

    ReplyDelete
  54. So many blocks out there! I love sawtooth stars and log cabins though. :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. I love so many different ones, but I really like the log cabin blocks. They can be done scrappy or whatever, and I think they are fun and not too complicated.

    Thank you for a chance at your giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  56. My favorite block is the Schoolhouse. I've never made one, but just inherited one made by my sweetheart's grandmother. I love the symbolism of it, and the cheery, independent way it looks, especially when there is a line of little schoolhouses in a row.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I do follow you as well, but thanks for the giveaway with no strings attached. My favorite block(s)/pattern is any sort of pinwheel...

    ReplyDelete
  76. My favourite is the one I am doing at the moment - I am not sure what it is called - it is the one with diamonds that join together to form a cube...does that make sense?? I saw it in a stately home I visited and then found a book in the second hand book shop showing how to do it. Clearly it was mean to be!

    ReplyDelete
  77. My favorite block of the moment is the 'wheel of fortune' or 'road to fortune' block. Thanks for a chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  78. I don't think I have a favorite block--I'm not yet a quilter, but would love to make something from the book "Block Party". I especially love the Confetti Block!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I kind of like the wonky stars. I really like chinese coin quilts, but have never made one myself. I'm not sure I have an absolute favorite pattern or block... it seems that the one I'm working on at the time is my current favorite.

  81. I'm very very new to quilting. A long time knitter I just rediscovered my love of embroidery and needle point and want to try my hand at quilting. I love this pattern: http://freespiritfabric.com/graphic-elements/gallerys/t201_1.pdf "Picnic Parade" by Jenean Morrison. The design is very simple and straight forward but with beautiful fabrics it really pops and draws you in.

  82. My favorite block, hmmmmmm , I think it would be log cabin. It is so versatile.

    thanks

    ReplyDelete
  85. I love the wonky log cabin blocks.. that way I can't make mistakes. The die that I would choose would be the circle because it is soooo hard to cut out circles.
    Thanks,
