    My favorite is picking the fabrics and the least is putting borders on....maybe that is why I don't get many finished?

    The most

    Hmmmm

    Well before the days of drastically fixed income I used to like picking out the fabric best. I can't afford to add to my stash, only buy for specific quilts (my stash is adequate, but I'm going to have to add some lights--oh boy trip to LQSs), so now I have to say that piecing is my favorite part.

    I love to sew on the machine and I love to put puzzles together.

    I enjoy the quilting because I have a longarm and love using it. I have worked out a plan with a good friend. She cuts and pieces for me and I quilt her quilts for her.

    I like the planning, piecing, quilting and binding. Cutting and sandwiching, not so much. I love the end result, though, enough to make it through the parts I don't like!

    I guess this is why I love quilting, it is so varied. Sometimes I even just like cutting the fabric, so when that is my mood I take stash and cut for an eventual crumb quilt.

    Of course, buying the fabric is tops in my book. Then I enjoy making the top. It is down-hill all the way from there. My interest begins to flag. I have two quilt tops hanging on my design wall, two quilts waiting to be quilted and one quilt top still being sewn. That one has to be finished--it is for #3 daughters birthday.

    I'm with you. It's the "process" that I enjoy. I have to admit that sometimes I go into a "gotta get it done" mode, but I usually make a mistake when I'm in that mode, and quickly revert to enjoying the "process". Right now I'm enjoying the process of FMQ. I'm finally getting a little bit better at it, so am enjoying that process a little more now than before.

    I love the entire process from purchasing the fabric, to cutting it up, piecing it back together and quilting it. And of course the binding means I am almost done.

    I love piecing and quilting but I have an LA so I look forward to that part. I also love to plan them.

    Oh, yes, I love that part. And, if they pet it, even better!

    The part I struggle with is putting the top together. All those blocks, adding the borders, it's so cumbersome.
    But, I love the binding, such a feeling of accomplishment.

    My all time favorite part is hand sewing the binding. I do like doing everything ...but quilting is my least favorite.

    I do like all aspects of quilting. My most favorite is making memory quilts for people out of loved ones clothing. So I guess I could say creating different & one of a kind quilts. I am big at fabric touchy feely.

    I think that the different activities in making a quilt are the reason I love to quilt so much. There is always something that I can do in any mood or any time. One of my favorite times is hand quilting on a cold night with a dachshund
    or two sleeping underneath.

    like several before me I enjoy the entire process ... from buying the fabrics to cutting them out to piecing them together .... and even getting them ready to quilt ... but I honestly believe that hand-sewing the binding is my favorite part of all 'cause that does mean it's almost done.

    For my granddaughter, it's choosing the pattern and fabrics. For me, it's the hand-quilting part of the quilt.
