Repeating Quilt Patterns

A member at Stashbuster asked the question of the group: Do we make the same quilt pattern several times, or do we try something new with each quilt?

As a beginning quilter, I made dozens of scrappy checkerboard-patterned quilts. For the last 10 years or so, I've made mostly one-of-a-kind quilts, designed by me specially for the recipient. Each has its own distinct pattern and look. However, for one recent quilt I made a smaller companion quilt for charity, so I suppose that's a repeat. For my charity quilts, I usually do the same pattern over and over. The Turning Twenty style I use is quick and easy, and I can churn out several quilts in a hurry.
