    A question out of curiosity: what is your main purpose when you make a quilt? Is it meant for daily use? For quilt shows? For decoration in your house? Or just because it's fun?

    My quilts would NEVER make it into a show. But they are all made with love and are to be used.

    Quilting does take me to a wonderful, peaceful place away from the chaos of the "real world"

    My last 2 quilts have been UFOs that my aunt made 50 yrs ago - the look on her face when they were returned to her completed!!

    The look on the faces are the best and the high I get is indescribable!!!

    Fun and relaxation, mostly. Anything else is an added benefit.

    I make functional quilts. I want them to be used and loved.

    HA, HA on the quilt show comment. Never happen here. Not even striving for it.

    Daily use. I make them so someone can crawl under them and feel someone really cares about them.
