Patterny friday five

1. How many pattern books do you own? I had a good many to begin with, and I just inherited more. The funny thing is that I rarely make anything out of them, I just use them for inspiration.

2. Do you make up your own patterns? To some extent, yeah. Nothing fancy, though.

3. Did you know most fabric companies offer free patterns? Yes. I've never done one of them myself, but the patterns for this quilt of my mother's came with the fabric, I believe. (Robyn Pandolph's "Moondance" line, from a few years ago.)

4. Do you use the internet to get patterns? Yes. Paper-piecing patterns, especially.

5. Do you prefer traditional (think churn dash, nine patch, 30's) patterns verses modern, more contemporary patterns? I think just about any pattern can look modern and it's more a matter of fabric choices than which pattern you use. The quilt in my icon is a "modern" one but I like tradtional patterns a lot, too.

I agree with your last question. Fabric really does make a huge difference for affecting the feel of the quilt.

Beautiful quilt. I have always known that block as "kaleidoscope" - it's always fun learning something new.

The internet is great about paper piecing patterns!
