My favorite type quilt pattern right now is paper pieced. I have maybe 3 going, between other projects.

Log cabin, ANY quilt pattern that I can make MY own! Embellishments in ALL

This list of 100 Best Quilt patterns looks like a page from my Pinterest account -- I've made a few of these and have most of the others on my "to do" list! Excellent choices.

I like modern quilts with lots of negative space - and anything using HSTs.

I love Log Cabin patterns

I love the scrappy patterns best!

I like patterns that are a challenge to make

electrifying. what a smorgesborge of beautiful patterns. never run out of ideas. wonderful.

I love anything with a flower/ garden theme. They can be more complicated, but I love a challenge.

I have always loved wedding ring quilts !! I also am fond of patchwork.

I love Crazy Quilts with all the various fabrics, hand needlework, buttons, and the odd memento here and there. The Crazy Quilts make me feel special and at home.

pieced star patterns are my favorites. Though I really like them all! 5 stars!

I like the nine patch but putting my own spin on it. Always make my quilts personal to the person I am giving it too.

I like the star patterns in quilts.

I like complex quilts with stars, mariners compass, and pinwheels. 24Tangent@gmail.com

Thank you for all the wonderful free patterns! What a great resource!!

I've never attempted paper piecing but I love how intricate paper piecing blocks look!

They're not listed here, but I LOVE bear paw quilts. I think they're such a fun mix of whimsical designs and old school/traditional quilting.

I am eternally amazed by star quilt patterns!

I have so many pieces of random fabric that I love being able to use them for pretty scrap quilt patterns.

I like Irish chain quilt patterns!

I forgot about those. i might have to change my answer!

I don't know much about quilt patterns, but I can tell you I like anything floral!

I like the nine patch quilt patterns, especially the Daisy Star quilt!

I really like different paper piecing quilt patters :) They are so pretty and well put together!

I like the stars. They are classic and lovely.

My favorites are table runners. They're usually pretty quick, so I can make them in bulk during the holidays for gifts!

You can't go wrong with a Christmas quilt pattern. They're just so fun and festive! Working on one will instantly put you in the holiday spirit.

So nice to see a fairly comprehensive list like this. Some of the wall quilts look especially beautiful.

I loved the first quilt I made, an Ohio Star Quilt

Can't pick just one! I loved them all or I wouldn't have chosen to make them. But one of the top favorite is a geology quilt I made for my son. Don't know how to upload a pic, sorry.

My favorites are the quilts I have made for my daughters and granddaughters! FAVEQUILTS is the most WONDERFUL website, for those of us on SS and limited income you could not ask for anything better to provide inspiration and great instructions for so many WONDERFUL projects! I am sorry I could not upload photos as I did not know how to do so! THANK YOU SO MUCH!

My favorite is whatever I'm working on at the moment. I love this website, great patterns and ideas at my fingertips.

Favorite quilt picture is too big to download. It is a baby quilt made with first year baby clothes.

My favorite is a quilt I made my husband for our 42nd wedding anniversary. He wanted embroidered native american designs (20), a flag in the middle ( 3 ft x 5 ft), denim (recycled from his clothes) and something "world" border fabric of world globes) with FMQ by me, to represent his views and feelings. I accomplished all these goals to present him with a warm and cozy "unique (him)" quilt. It was a challenge, but I did it.

one of my favorites is a grandmother's fan I made for my daughter

My favorite quilting project is my wall hanging "Golden Gate Fly-by". No photo as I don't wish to give license to any affiliates to use it.

Every completed quilt is my favorite... but my very first one - a T-shirt quilt for my grandson's 16th birthday has a special place in my heart.

My favorite quilt project was a Tropical Parrot lap quilt I made with double batting for extra loft. It looks almost 3-D!

Hi bkycouture 6276334! Congrats. You've won our comment contest. We will be in touch shortly! Kaylee, Editor of FaveQuilts

My favorite quilt is a lap quilt I made for my husband using Canadiana themed fabric from Northcott by Moda.

I haven't been quilting for very long but my queen size Trip Around the World is the largest I have attempted and it turned out pretty well. Now I just have to complete the shams.

My favorite so far is my queen size quilt first quilt in 20 years

My favorite quilting project ever would have to be when my niece was going to have a baby, a little girl, and the whole room was done in owls. I made a owl quilt and a couple throw pillows to match.

I want to locate a pattern for the Pooh animals. I had this at one time but it was lost in a fire. I made this stuffed toys for my children and now have grandchildren who would love to snuggle with Pooh while I read them stories about Chritopher Robin. Can anyone help me? I also need help with the baby quilt that has layers and when finished looks like chenille. Thanks, Rebecca

Does anyone have the pattern for the Pooh stuffed toys? I made all of them for my children and now would like to do the same for my grandchildren a I read them the delightful stories of Christopher Robin. Thanks so much if you can share. Rebecca

I saw a quilt using boxer shorts for the colored pieces on the site one time. I can't find it again. Can you help me?

In 2002 Jenny B. Harris posted a shuffle quilt pattern using 36 fat squares. There were no directions for putting together. It was a shuffle quilt with 4 stacks of nine blocks. Can you help me out.

http://site.beverlys.com/store/downloads/t/h/the_shuffle.pdf There is a pdf of the pattern here with the directions! Enjoy,
