It's all in the fabric and color selection. You can change the entire look and focus of a pattern by simply selecting new and exciting fabrics. The fabrics you choose can change and make a quilt pattern fresh and new. The majority of quilt block patterns have been around for a long time. The settings may change or the block combinations, but a Churn Dash is still a Churn Dash. Maybe it's time to rethink and revisit some of the classic quilt patterns or blocks. Think of a favorite quilt pattern you've done in the past. Would your choice of colors change if you were making it today? Any pattern can easily be updated and pieced again. Is there a pattern or block you just love? If so, maybe it's time to consider it as your next project. If you liked it then, I bet you'll like it again. Oldies but goodies apply in quilting too.
