    Right now I have a list a mile long, but each for a specific purpose. Not sure I could enjoy it as much either without an end purpose....but then again I'm pretty good at coming up with excuses ... um purposes...for the project I want to try next. I know lots and lots of people who don't quilt or sew, and they all have birthdays, Christmas, Easter......etc.

    I think there are process people and project people. i am a process person and the process means a lot to me although I do like the finished project. On the other hand, my friend likes to end up with the project and that is the entire motivation to start. she like to sew, but the end is always in sight.

    I'm sure you're not the only one who needs a specific purpose but for me, just because I love the fabric, or want to try a new technique, or am intrigued by a pattern is enough "purpose".

    I do some with a purpose in mind and some I do because I love to quilt and some I do just in case I need one for someone.

    When I am in the mood to make a quilt I know that the homeless shelter will welcome it so I feel like I am doing something good for someone beside the joy I get from quilting. After looking a different quilt patterns here on the Message Board I am always inspired to get quiltting.
    :lol:

    I don't need any more quilts to stay in my house.

    I'm with you. It's the creative process that draws me. If I find a pattern (or fabric) that appeals to me, I just have to do it. Can't ever let it defeat me though. I made a Spicy Spiral top the other day & had half of it together wrong. I may not finish this one but will do another one just to get it right. That's just me.
