We are creating a Gallery in QCA that you'll be able to use to search for various quilt images (and post your own to your very own Gallery!) - and we want to have a list of the most common terms and tags to make your search as easy as possible. To that end, we need your input!

 

What are the most popular:

  • blocks used in quilting?
  • techniques used in quilting?
  • fabric types and patterns used in quilting?
  • quilt sizes?

Just respond to this post and be sure to include the heading along with your list. Doesn't matter if there are duplications! For example:

Blocks:

  • Bear Claw
  • Rail Fence

Fabric:

  • Plaids
  • Florals
  • Cotton

Techniques:

  • Embroidery
  • Applique
  • Foundation
  • English Paper Piecing 

Thanks for your help!

Replying to the Gallery questions:  I like to make either baby quilts or king size. with a king size it can be a cover for queen or full. and you never know when someone will upgrade their sleeping arrangements!!

I also like landscapes but not applique(I do a lot of piecing)

My Favorite block has become the Carpentar's Star or Wheel.  I've done is as the one block supersize or multiple. 

 

My favorite fabic is cotton florals in more earthy tones

 

My favorite technique is quilting in sections.  I like to try a variety of piecing techniques but when it comes time to put it together I like to do it in sections.  The book Block by Block has a great method.
