The third block from the top...and the bottom block is my second favorite! The cover and pages look so cute!

Jean said...

I love the first one! The flowers are just precious! Thanks for the opportunity....piece.

Brenda said...

I like all the ones that combine applique and piecing. congrats on the book!

Sherry said...

Well there all great but if I was to have to pick one I would pick the top one.

Ruth B said...

I'm having a very hard time choosing between 3 & 6. I think it is the colors in 3 that draw me in but I'll go with 6 as my fav. The book looks amazing and the kind of book I love love love. Congrats!!

Mary Grace McNamara said...

Kristen said...

I would pick the top flower one with the rick rack! I like how their is appliqued added in each block!

Yvonne said...

I love the pink applique block, second from the bottom. I also love the beautiful teal quilt on the front cover. Congratulations on your new book, I would love to win it!

Laurie said...

Mmmm, I thought I knew my favorite block until I enlarged the photo! Then it became much more difficult to pick! I really like the first block AND the bottom TWO blocks! My first choice was the very bottom block because it looked like something I could handle - a fairly simple piecing with not too much applique - BUT.......then when I looked at the blocks with more detail, I thought maybe I could really do any of them!! (At least with some patience!) So, I guess if I have to pick it would be the very bottom block. What a cool idea for a pattern book! Congratulations and I'm wishing you great success with it!

Mia said...

that looks awesome! i love the pinwheel.

My grandmother was a quilter but her quilts were made from feed sacks and were to keep us warm. The fabrics might not have matched but they sure did feel like love to me. I love the last block the most; but, I like them all.

Chris@Cats On My Quilts said...

I love the second one with the HST's. I lovemaking half square triangles and I think they always make such pretty and interesting quilts.

Kelly O. said...

I think quilt block #6 (bottom) is my fave!

Rafael's Mum said...

I love the windmill of pleasure block as I can see the quilt and it is gorgeous! Besides, my favourite colours! Thanks for the fab giveaway.

Needled Mom said...

How can someone pick their favorite. I love the pinwheel - always one of my favorite blocks anyway.

Congratulations on the book. I know it was a long time and a lot of work in the planning of it.

PunkiePie said...

Third block from the top is my favorite!

Jeannette said...

Block number four is my favourite, anything that is appliqued I love with the combination with pieced blocks. Thanks so much for the chance to win

Kelley O said...

All of the blocks are great but my favorite would be 2nd up from the bottom. The cute pink flower in the center with the tear-drop shaped leaf appliques around the block.....It's beautiful. Thanks for sharing your talent with us.

Kristy said...

The Ohio Star Block would be perfect, because I live in Ohio. I have two big events this year...my daughter is getting married and my son and daughter-in-law are having our first grandchild. So I have quilts to make, and the Ohio Star would be perfect. I really love the pink and green one too. I would be over the moon to win your very inspiring book. Kristy in Ohio

sweetbabies00 said...

I like them all, but the pinwheel is the one I would chose to make first. I love the brown in the block. Great job on all of them!

Kristy said...

I have fallen for the top block. The flowers remind me of black eyed susan blooms.
