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!

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!
