Here's a great question...

So what is your favorite quilt pattern?

I love a Dresden plate, well China Aster version of a Dresden plate.  Every time I see one I am reminded that I have one started and I should get back to it.

Today I saw a gorgeous one at More stars in Comanche.  I was so jealous that her's is done and beautifully quilted. And mine is still a dream!

I made one for my niece a few years ago.  I hated to part with it, but I know it went to a good home.

I loved the setting on this quilt and may just do my new one with a similar setting.  Time will tell!

My second favorite is a bow tie.  It was my learn to quilt, quilt when I was 16.  My aunt taught me how to quilt on a bow tie that she had made.  I was hooked!  For years I slept under that quilt every time I went for a visit.  I wonder where it is now?

So what's your favorite?  I would love to know!

Things I found on the web today...

I can see why you love dresdens, that is a stunning quilt! I'm still quite new to quilting so have much to learn but I do like star blocks and paper piecing a square in a square. It'll be interesting to see the responses :)

I could not possibly choose a favourite pattern. It's either the one I'm sewing or the one I'm drawing at the time you ask the question!
