It would look like the one I have cut out but can't seem to find time to get to. Thimbleberries Pansy Garden in pinks, greens, purples, golds. I love pansies because it's in the viola family which is my birth flower in February. The colors are the colors in the border in my bedroom which of course are pansies with petunias. My bedroom is painted sage green and amthyst (my birth stone). It is a very relaxing, restful room. The Thimbleberries Pansy Garden quilt is a very relaxing, restful quilt and I'd like to find time to get it done. However I'm working on a quilt donation of 12 quilts to a retreat center in AZ that helps ministers, their spouses, and military chaplains. People don't realize they need help too. So it is my pleasure to donate these quilts to this retreat center. God's work comes first.

Mine would be a scrap quilt with a lot of different colors, styles of fabric and a bit unorganized.  Large, soft and a bit worn and with some repairs but warm and cuddly.

As an artist I am drawn to batiks with their moody colors and surprising imagery. I would have to be a simple quilt but with contrast.  Something like Lavender Fields by Quiltmaker but done in batiks of mixed blues, teals and greens with just a smidge of coral or lemon for pop.  The quilting itself would definitely be modern.  Large spaces with free but simple stitching so as not to detract from the "take me, squish me, squeeze me" batiks!

My quilt would be a crazy patch using silk, velveteen, specialty fabrics, and of course quilting cotton.  I am a hand and machine embroiderer, beader, and a bobbin and tatting lacemaker.  So my quilt would be embelished to the max.  No specific pattern or direction.  I'm not an organized person.  But I love the best things in life, which includes having a large variety of threads, yarns, beads and lace to "pile on."  As my husband always said, if there is a flat surface in the house, I stack something on it.  Usually the latest books, fabrics, patterns, and projects from classes; yet to be finished.  In fact, the crazy quilt probably wouldn't quite be finished.

My quilt would be imperfect for I have yet to perfect any one technique. It would be well-organized, because I am not. It would be sweet and bold and very, very pretty. I strive for these concepts but do not expect to reach my goals. But, I keep my spirit alive by having my goals and working toward them.

My favorite colors are reds and blues and tans. I completed a quilt called Points of Pride which was paper pieced and I used Moda's Old Glory Gatherings fabric collection. It is my favorite, so far.

I am working on one right now.  It is cut and needs to be pieced.  The pattern is Underground Railroad sampler.  There are 15 different blocks that were believed to be used as code quilts to guide slaves to freedom.  I have never had so much fun cutting the material as I did for this quilt.  The colors are red, green, brown, and blue, ranging from medium to dark, 13 colors in all.  In addition a beige background in 4 different shades light to dark.  I did not buy any new fabric.  I attacked my stash!  So, if I did not have enough medium brown, I found another piece of fabric very close in color to finish the cuts for that color.  Needless to say, it will truly be a very scrappy quilt.  I cannot wait to see it when it is all done.  I will be sure to post it when finished.  Stay tuned!

A quilt that represented myself would be unique and not afraid to march to the beat of a different drummer. It would be strong, with a sense of contained energy, intense, but subtle, with many interlocking layers that take attention and close study to appreciate. It would be a large color washed bargello made with at least 24 different fabrics, most fabric having multiple colors in them, with all the values from light to dark, different scales, and different styles, all harmonizing together so that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

My personality quilt would probably have a Ricky Tims Convergence quilt as a base with hot bright African colours merging into tropical blues and greens.I am a Pisces  so I like lots of twists and turns, as well as contrasts. I always have several things I am working on at once. I love applique so it would have lots of applique on it, and loads of texture quilted into it for visual interest, and a crazy different binding.

I love the batiks --so that is what i would use in my quilt. I like the bright colors , mixed with an off white or light tan, possibly a pale green, for a background. And as a nature lover, I would probably use small blocks of animals in it also.As far as the block goes--I like the traditional blocks--but I may just get carried away and do something completely unexpected too.

My quilt would probably be a sampler quilt, althought I have made quilts that aren't "sampler".  I like to mix things up, but I'm sort of controling at the same time.  It takes me longer to choose the fabrics for a block than it does to make said block.  Most of my quilts are made from stash so I go through them several times looking for just the right fabrics for each block.  Sometimes I end up buying a few pieces to have just the right fabrics.  Of course I have other projects going while I'm waiting for the right fabrics to show up.

My quilt would have many bright colored batiks because I like to think of myself as bright and cheery. It would be mostly perfectly pieced with some slight imperfections, hopefully not noticeable. It would have a lot of straight lines because I'm told I'm rigid and very determined. It would be warm and soft to the touch and when wrapped around someone it would give the feeling of being loved and secure.

My personality quilt would be an Art Deco look with blacks and reds.

Since I am Bi-Polar mine would be a WIDE array of colors.  The outside edges would be bright to represent the smile that I wear to make people think all is well.  The center will use darker colors to show depression.  Then the area between would be a mixture of scrappy color/shapes, as my life is utter chaos most of the time.  And in the VERY center block would be a cross that represents Jesus is the center of my life the only reason I can keep it together during the good and bad.

Sunbonnet Sue done in with 30's prints, nice and neat, and a bit old-fashioned. Just like a country girl who gets inspiration from her grandmother's quilts.

I have a duo personality and love pretty and romantic, which would be for me a crazy quilt of beautiful elegant fabric and flowing colors, embellishments of laces, pictures, ribbons and embroidery.  On the other hand, I love a challenge and have to challenge myself continually which would also include the Mariners compass in great detail and many points.  It would also have to have vibrant colors and shades of the colors or the Kaleidoscope quilts. All this makes me feel like dancing and winning the prize. Of course I would only win a blue ribbon from my Grandchildren as they are my fondest admirers.

Love when your emails arrive, as they are very interesting and also fun to see what other great people thank and do.

Mine would have  to be an optical illusion creating a three demential look with several medium to deep passionate reds, oranges and blacks.  Very dramatic, mysterious, rich, and deeply romantic. And maybe an element of surprise  for the fun loving, teasing side of me.

I think mine would somehow have to incorporate a subdued, friendly, but solitary quietness along with a blend of interesting textures and versatility. I really define myself on my crafting aptitudes, which range all over the place from quilting to knitting, crochet, and jewelry. An eclectic quilt where nothing really seems to match, but somehow it all comes together and makes sense.

My quilts would be colorful, carefully put together with a great deal of thought.

Mainly Blues and greens

My quilt would be in soft yellows and reds. The squares would be different patterns. Mostly small florals would be used, a nice cream for the solid fabric. The yellow would be soothing and the red would give the quilt some spice. Jean

My personality quilt would likely be a sampler quilt done in scraps with the background a dark true blue.  No two blocks the same.  There are just too many patterns, fabrics and crafts I want to try and I will never live long enough to try them all.  Or enough money to try them all, for that matter!!  But I will have fun trying.

Mine would look like a starburst or fireworks but would be all soft colors - pale yellow, pale soft green, cream, very light aqua - all restful and peaceful

A Mariners compass, in cool colors - blues, purples, and greens

My personality quilt would have a black background with the brightest colors, magenta, purple, aqua, in a star pattern. I love the drama of black or navy junctaposed with bright bright colors! Much like my life solid steady on the outside with flaming colors on the inside LOL!

it would look very eclectic.  i love the unusual.  there would be no quilt in the world that would resemble me or be able to copy me.  i would be like a monet.   lots of people wanting to copy the style and colors but can't quite figure out how.

My quilt would be an original design starting with a fabric/fabrics from my stash.  I buy fabrics I like, then decide what to do with them.  I love a challenge and lots of mathematics, so I would design my quilt as I go working around the design in the fabric. I like to choose my own co-ordinates and colors. It would be eclectic.

Mine would be a sampler quilt using "north woods" type fabrics. Lots of homespun, greens, golds, blues.

My personality quilt would be a scrappy, blues, purples and a tad of yellow for some spunk. I would have some paper piecing, applique and blocks with a new technique to learn. It would have a person touch as I am certain that I will have to redo some seams (stitch & *** as I redo). My friends will know most of my points will match as I am anal in this area. LOL But I will be extremely proud as it will represent me!!

I think my personality quilt would be my own design and would have many different garden flowers in a lattice work setting - like the beautiful garden I always hope for and with all the color and sunshine anyone could want.  Something that would relax my soul and set me dreaming - of summer swings in the shade and grass under my feet.

I guess my personality quilt would be in line to be finished, cotton material because it is dependable and durable and wears.  Bright pastel colors I love stars but I would probably be circles as that is what life seems to be the past few years.  Soft to snuggle with my grandchildren and to be compassionate to others.  Or a beach scene since that is a dream for me and my husband some day to sit on a beach at sunset.

My personality quilt would be a wonky log cabin made with autumn colours to compliment my age and complection.  It would be made with durable cottons with a contemporary pieced backing, because my life seems to be a patchwork of odd pieces made to fit together.

Mine would be a modern landscape quilt with lots of flowers and butterflies. Bright colored 3D birds sitting on a reil fence.

I made my personality quilt. It hangs in my living room.  It started with 4" blocks of dull nondescript fabric. As I made it , I became more and more disgusted with the lack of color, so I split it with a large X in the center  used orange and yellow sunburst in the exposed center and added a butterfly!  I would love to send a picture!  I love color, color, color. Those 4" blocks were given to me by a friend who moved back to Michigan and had no room in her car for fabric.
