OK! So where do you live? When I get good at this (not "if"... "when".) We will make great neighbors! HAHAHAHA

:) I know exactly what you mean. I don't like the piecing much - I LOVE the quilting!

I've even bought quilt tops so that I have something to quilt.

If there were someone nearby who loves piecing and hates quilting, I would probably trade tasks with them in just about a heartbeat.

It will get better!!! I promise!!!

I have quilted a couple hundred quilts, at least 24 of them were queens and the majority large lap/twin size all on my regular sized sewing machine!!!
You can do it. Now, my quilting is not fancy, it is my least favorite part and I sure am tired and sore when I am wrestling a queen size on the machine but it can be done.
My dream is to some day own a Long Arm machine. As of yet, I have never sent out a quilt to be "quilted" for me.

I think it is so wonderful how God made us so different. I wonder sometimes if He did that so we would learn to work together as a team in order to get things done.
If no one liked to piece but only to quilt, there would not be this wonderful site where I have met such sweet and helpfull people. Maybe we should start a new section... I will piece for you if you quilt for me, and the other way round. The only cost would be shipping, and we would each get to do the part we like. HAHAHHA

I bow to you casting dozens of roses in utter admiration. :-D

At the same time, not every aspect of quilting comes easy for every quilter. I love machine applique, but don't like hand quilting. It might be that you just aren't one to do your own machine quilting, but you are probably excellent at piecing or picking out colors or teaching others or something else and machine quilting just isn't your cup of tea. The good thing about that is there there are a ton of long arm quilters ready willing and able to do that for you on their fancy machines. Don't be discouraged, but rather focus on what you're great at! :thumbup:
