    OK, now that we know what everyone dislikes about making quilts. What is your favorite part about making quilts??

    I love all of it. By the time it's time to move on to the next stage, I am quite ready to do something else. So I look forward to every stage....

    I love seeing my ideas come together the right way, but I also enjoy the look on peoples' faces when they receive one from me. :)

    if it is a quilt i design than i enjoy every step of the process. if it is a kit.. surviving! don't know why i have problems with kits. perhaps it is an authority issue.

    Usually I love it all, except the B word. Right now I love ironing, because my fingers are warm being close to the iron. Never thought I would like ironing.

    I love the excitement of a new project, choosing my fabrics/colors and seeing the top come together with each new block! LOL!

    I love selecting a project (though it takes me forever to decide which one to do from the gazallion patterns marked "MUST DO"), selecting the fabrics, cutting, piecing, and I LOVE applique! Then, my bubble is burst when reality hits--I now have to BASTE that sucker!! But then, I struggle deciding how to quilt it (by hand), and finally, the total enjoyment of hand-quilting! I even love to do the binding. So, I guess I love EVERYTHNG enough to compensate for the HATRED and DREAD of basting!!

    I love choosing the fabrics and putting together the entire top. After that I want the quilting and binding done ASAP so I can move on to my next project.

    I love the idea of creating something new! I rarely use any pattern but what I design so every part from beginning to end is what comes out of my head. Sometimes I am afraid my head will explode I have so many ideas.
