    What is your favorite part of making a quilt? Cutting it out? Designing? Piecing? Quilting? Binding?

    Me....I love piecing the tops....I just love seeing the colors go together and the shapes take form.....like putting a puzzle together. I can just do this over and over and over. Gee, if I did this, I could have a never ending stack of UFOs. But it's like an addiction even while I am finishing a project I find myself day dreaming and my mind wandering on over to a new project.

    Anyone else have that problem....or am I bi-polar, tee hee. :-D

    Planning! Pattern, color, layout, picking fabric. I think I like it because the 6-year-old in me can come out to play. She loves to color on grid paper.

    I agree with both of you. I love the planning, the hunt for fabric and the making of the top. I can take or leave the quilting part. Although I don't mind the hand quilting, just do small projects.:)

    No doubt: the hand quilting and planning the quilting designs!

    Machine piecing, hand appliqué, hand quilting, and hand binding. Cutting, basting, blech! I hope to learn and enjoy machine quilting better.

    I think I have come to the point where I like designing patterns the most. Second would be cutting the fabric.

    My favorite part of making a quilt is wrapping it around the new owner!
