quiltmom said...

Well Crystal,
It is hard for me to choose my favorite block but I would say it is a toss up between log cabin and any star pattern variation. I am a traditional quilter except that I love color and particularly batik fabrics.
Thanks for hosting such a nice giveaway.

Hello from the state of Maryland. Beeee-u-tiful fabrics! My favorite block pattern is the disappearing nine. It's my next venture, and will probably spend more time turning them around and seeing what they turn into, than actually sewing a quilt together.
