  1. I love your modern take on the wedding ring. I think my favorite block is the log cabin because it's so versatile and can be traditional or modern.

  3. My most favourite block is the New York Beauty block- there is so much variation with it. This book looks great- can't wait to see it!

    ReplyDelete
  4. I honestly do not have a favorite block. Mostly because I'm still new to quilting and am still discovering fun ones everyday :)

    ReplyDelete
  5. I have always loved log cabin blocks! The book looks wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  6. I'm still new to quilting but I seem to be attracted to star blocks.

    ReplyDelete
  7. It's hard to pick a favorite, but I do love all the possibilities with a log cabin block. Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I favor the churn dash block. I tend to do traditional, but would love to try this block with a modern twist. Michele's book is just what I need for inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  9. My favorite is the log cabin block.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I had a lot of fun with the anvil blocks and have made a bunch but I also like the pineapple block quite a lot.
    Very labor intensive but worth it!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Well, I've been quilting forever and don't have a favorite, but I sure do like quilts with curves. And I'd love to win that book, sounds interesting!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I love the very simple and classic half square triangle...because you can create hundreds (maybe thousands) of other patterns with it..

    ReplyDelete
  13. Card trick and dronkards path are two of my favorites

    ReplyDelete
  14. I have always loved anything with flying geese...

    ReplyDelete
  15. I have always love the churn dash and the carpenter's wheel blocks...so versatile!
    You are such an inspiration to me with your modern twists on tradition. Keep up the gorgeous work!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I would like to say something different than the other comments, but log cabin has always been my top favorite block, followed by the lowly 9-patch with all its variations - I like to be able to "interpret" these blocks! Thanks for the chance to win.

  17. My fave block right now is one I designed - it's kind of like cross hatching, but more! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I've been loving making flying geese lately ~ the old way. I've got this precious fabric that I'm finally making a quilt with. Cutting it with care!
    Thanks for the giveaway ~ looks like a great book!

  20. My favorite block is the simple churn dash. Love how it looks straight set or on point. Seems simple, it is, but its a timeless block. Looks like you are having a blast in Houston. Good for you!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Log cabin blocks are my favorite. So many ways to venture out with them, and yet they still always refer back to the traditional.

    ReplyDelete
  22. My favorite is the log cabin - so many different variations. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  23. At the moment it's Pickle Dish!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. ive had a long love affair with the log cabin!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Choosing just one block as a favorite is soooo hard. I do tend to use drunkard's path and log cabin more than other traditional blocks. They are so versatile! Thanks for offering this give away!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I don't have just one. I like the log cabin (wacky). And I love the modern wedding ring quilts you have been making.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love a churn dash! Looks like a great book!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love anything with stars and card trick always catches my eye. I'm in love with the modern looking quilt and so I love to just start sewing some squares together and see where it leads me, whether I start cutting those then apart or leaving them. Love your Blog, thank you for the great giveaway

    ReplyDelete
  29. My favorite quilt block has always been the Double Wedding Ring. Of course, I never knew quite how awesome it could be until I started stalking you last year. Go DWR!!!!! (Also: I really want this book.)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  31. Of course the double wedding ring is my favorite!

    ReplyDelete
  32. It is like picking your favorite child, depends on the day!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love a 9 patch..... and a wonky log cabin. Still waiting to try some of the others! Anything with a star always catches my eye as well :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Do I have to pick just one? Bear paw, ohio star or anything with flying geese.....
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hi Victoria,
    I would have to say that Churn Dash is my all-time favourite.
    Thanks for the giveaway,
    Jacqueline in Pitt Meadows

  36. I really love anything with stars, but the DWR is a goal, and so many more! I love what you've been showing from Market. Glad you're having fun!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love your quilt, Victoria! Those colors are fabulous!
    My favorite block is the Churn Dash block. It was the first one that I learned when I took my first quilting class, and it has always been close to my heart. And, I would have to say it may be tied with Log Cabin, because, after all, who doesn't love Log Cabin blocks? Grace

    ReplyDelete
  38. My favorite is the + and X block!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Anything with flying geese! But I really want to try a DWR one day. See you in Houston.

  46. Hmmm... my favorite quilt block. I think it definitely changes frequently. My gut is telling me the log cabin because of how much you can do with it. But I also have a soft spot for the spool block ... and the churn dash ... and shoofly ... and constellation ...

    ReplyDelete
  47. The Fan block is my new favorite, but I still love a Bow Tie.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love log cabin and bear paw blocks. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I think Log Cabin is a wonderful block because it is so versatile. This looks like an inspiring book, thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I love the log cabin block, probably because it was the very first block I made when I started quilting - 1" strips!!! We were to learn accuracy also - UGH!! And I still love it, as there are so many possibilities with making them look like half square triangles.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I really like new York beauties. This book looks great, very inspirational.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Difficult to choose just one but at the moment it would have to be Flying Geese, I love using them in a quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I love the Bear Paw but have never made a quilt using this block... I love the idea for one in the book, so that might be the ticket for me!!!

    ReplyDelete
  93. This looks like a great book! Thanks for the video chat. Its very hard to pick a favorite block, but I like any design that gives an asymmetrical look to the block like a Log Cabin, Birds in the Air or Split 9 Patch. The layout possibilities are so fun with a block like that.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  97. I think the Log cabin is my favorite pieced block as it was my very first quilt in the 70's and one I did just this summer.

    ReplyDelete
  98. I love so many different quilt blocks, and appliqued blocks are especially appealing to me. But there are a couple -- the first couple that I learned to make-- that are and always will be two of my favorites--- Ohio Star and Shoo Fly. :-) The idea of showing classic blocks made up in modern fashion is SO interesting! Great idea for a book!! Thanks so much for the chance to win a copy! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  99. I love star blocks, but because there are so many blocks to choose from, my favorite block is the one I am working on at the time. Thanks for a chance to win a copy of the new book.
