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!
