Just wondering if there's a way to return the matrix block number during the loop?

For example:

{% for block in entry.myMatrixField %}
  {% if block.type == "quote" %}
    <blockquote class="quote{{GET_BLOCK_NUMBER}}">
      <p>{{ block.quote }}</p>
    </blockquote>
  {% endif %}
{% endfor %}

Might return something like this:

<blockquote class="quote1">
  <p>Curabitur aliquet quam id dui posuere blandit.</p>
</blockquote>
<blockquote class="quote2">
  <p>Curabitur aliquet quam id dui posuere blandit.</p>
</blockquote>
<blockquote class="quote3">
  <p>Curabitur aliquet quam id dui posuere blandit.</p>
</blockquote>

Thanks, Mark

Yes that's possible, all Twig loops have a loop variable:

loop.index - The current iteration of the loop. (1 indexed)
loop.index0 - The current iteration of the loop. (0 indexed)

Example:

{% for block in entry.myMatrixField %}
  {% if block.type == "quote" %}
    <blockquote class="quote{{ loop.index }}">
      <p>{{ block.quote }}</p>
    </blockquote>
  {% endif %}
{% endfor %}
