My favorite quilt block is any quilt block that I am currently working on! It seems that just as I get a favorite, my next quilt comes along - and then, a new favorite appears. I need those shirtings!!!

Country Log Cabin Quilter said...

It's a close call between log cabin and sawtooth star. Please enter me in the drawing.

Mama2KBR said...

Let's see....my favorite block. I would think that it's Sunbonnet Sue. I've always loved her.

Nancy Anne said...

My all-time favorite is the sawtooth star!

Kathie said...

I have to say I love the nine patch block and of course any star block!!!!
Love shirtings so thank you for a great giveaway!
Kathie

Mama2KBR said...

Oh dear. I got to thinking. Not only do I love Sue, but there's something about the log cabin block and how versatile it is.

I guess I like all kinds of blocks. Must be way I'm working on the DJ quilt.

Julie Dempster said...

Hi
I've just discovered English paper piecing. Those little hexagons are so addictive. They grow so rapidly and they use up lots of left over fabric.

My favorite block is any one I'm working on but I do like traditional blocks, log cabin, pin wheel.
I'd love to add to my stash. I enjoy reading the blog.

Lee Anne said...

"Stars" were in her eyes....the Variable Star block is my all time favorite....it is versatile, lovely and can be jazzed up in so many ways!

Love to Applique said...

My favorite quilt block is nine patch. Thank You for the chance to win. Hugs Debbie

Becky said...

I love the bear paw block. I especially like a real scrappy looking quilt using this block. Thanks for your generosity!

KSedlak said...

Oh, my favorite block has always been the log cabin, but I am very fond of the dresden too.
What fun to have a giveaway. I love the shirtings you have pictured today.

Lorraine said...

Great giveaway......my fave block is Dresden Plate.....

Kathleen said...

So many favorites but to narrow down to just one..........being from Ohio, my vote is for the Ohio Star. Love the shirtings.

SewLindAnn said...

My fave block is the half square triangle. It's so versatile, you can do so much with it. Love the shirtings, thanks for the giveaway

DebrafromMD said...

My favorite block is the log cabin. It's so easy to piece and you can set it a million different ways

waquilter said...

Oooh, fun drawing! The shirtings are wonderful! Have to say my favorite block is LeMoyne Star!

Pokey said...

Thank you for the opportunity, I have made a few Little Quilts from your patterns over the years! :-} Boy, hard to narrow down a favorite: hexagons, Dresden plates, hearts-pieced and appliqued, nine patch, too! I have done several string quilts, and I love their success rate.

Quilt Enthusiast said...

If I had to pick a favorite block it
would be the Ohio star for a patch block. Thanks for asking. I'm doing
a happy dance and feeling lucky.

I'm kind of partial to string quilts, does that count?

Pat / Silver Thimble Quilt Co. said...

Nice give a way...I'll be posting about it on my blog today.

sandra in VA said...

What a fun give away. My favorite block is the nine patch, little tiny nine patches...

knittingdancer said...

I have always love the Sunbonnet Sue and the Little Fisher Boys quilts. My mother made all 3 of her grandsons the Little Fisher Boys quilts. I love the colors in the fat quarters.

Lisa said...

I've always loved Ohio Star blocks, especially in miniature. I have dozens of photos of O.S. quilts in my "to-do" quilt book.

Kay Brand said...

Well... today my favorite block it the half square log cabin that Sharyn Craig did a book on several years ago. I just love how quick this block is. Every time you add a dark strip you have a completed block. (I think the book has just been reprinted) Of course my favorite block changes with the wind. A bundle of LQ shirtings would be great for my light in this block. Thanks for the chance to win them.

Nancy said...

Though question on what my favorite kind of quilt block is. I do like the log cabin, but I'm also really into the modern freestyle quilting. Thanks for the cute giveaway. I think shirting fabrics are darling and fun to work with.

Jessica said...

My favorite quilt block is something my husband gave me to celebrate our five years together. He watercolored a "pattern" and named it the "five patch." It's basically a nine patch but the two outer edges are 3 squares long. So, three squares in the center and two long rectangles on the sides. I thought it was clever. I made a mini version of it the other day and it went together easily. :D

Cotton Blossom said...

I love any block that includes a star! I am a new quilter but have enjoyed making a Courthouse Square Block and the proverbial Nine Patch. Choices are endless! I would love to be entered into the drawing. Thanks!

Chris said...

I love making 4-patches - I know they are simple, but I love making them! If I have a pile of scraps and can make 4-patches, I'm happy!

Susan Yates said...

I guess alltime favorite block is the maple leaf. I think it reminds me of the fall color change.

Laila said...

Hi.
My favorite block are Friendship star. Easy and you can play a lot with it.
Have a great day.

Sandi said...

Hi, My favorite block is any kind of star. I just love doing stars. I think your shop is great. Sandi

Sharon said...

Wow thanks for having the drawing....I can see some awesome things done with those pretty shirting's.... I would have to say my all time favorite would be the log cabin block, then anything with applique' then the nine patch...I could go on and on and on....

HOUNDDOG's NEWS said...

Thanks for having this giveaway and my favorite block is the Ohio Star. Maybe because I live in Ohio. LOL

Maryann said...

I love this blog and the monthly newsletters. I look forward to them even though I am so far away in NYCity. SunBonnet Sue is a favorite of mine. Keep up the good work!

Marla Hutton said...

I like the sawtooth star block. Thanks for the chance at some fat quarters... we can never have enough fabric!

kyquilter said...

Love the shirtings. My favorite block is Sister's Choice.

sunporchquilts said...

Ooooh, this is a hard one, but I think I have to say that I love half-square triangles, because there's no waste and you can use them in so many ways - to become other blocks, borders, whatever.

Sue Cahill said...

That is one difficult question but the answer is Sunbonnet Sue for me. She is my alter ego and I love to applique her somewhere on most of my quilts.

whitehse said...

While traveling through Georgia, I made a point of stopping in Marietta just to visit your shop, and boy was it ever worth the visit. You have a terrific shop, and I hope to return next year.

Thanks for all of your assistance.

Rose said...

During a trip in the southeastern United States this past month, I drove out of my way to come and visit your shop. It was well worth it, and I hope to be able to return next year.

Susan said...

Oh, goodie - a give-a-way! I would use the shirting fabric to make my favorite applique block!

lenasdaughter said...

Christie said...

My favorite block has to be log cabin. I've been making quilts from Judy Martin's book...and of course using Little Quilt's fabulous shirtings for my "light" fabrics and reproduction fabrics for the darks.

Sewcatherine said...

I love anything machine applique...especially using red, green and cheddar. In the pieced block category, I love the look of the house block or school house block but don't enjoy working with templates!

GeeMa said...

I love Cathedral Windows... to look at. My step-mother is going to show me how to make them.

Sheila said...

melody said...

My all time favorite block is the Bears Paw. Depending on where you are from it's been called the Ducks foot in the mud, (somedays you step in it somedays you don't)and the block has been called the Hand of Friendship. I love the latest version called the Dancing Paw. Reminds me of dancing bear on Captain Kangaroo..... now I:m really showing my age!

Buckeye Quilter said...
