    Hi everyone,can we talk?
    Which do you dread the most? I think for me it's pressing the final quilt top before putting it together. Trying to keep all the seams flat and going the right way can be tiresome. I know a lot of you have complained about doing the binding, but for me that means home stretch, almost finished!!

    Just the other day I was trying to figure out what my most favorite part was, now you have me thinking in a whole different direction. But this one is easy - seam ripping! My lovely patient youngest daughter used to be my favorite seam ripper, but then she had to grow up and move away. :-( Now I have to do it myself.

    Mine is making the sandwich. Well, that final press comes in pretty close to the sandwiching too.

    Making the sandwich . I can't get down on the floor anymore because of bad knees, so I have to do it on my mothers king size bed. It's very difficultto get it smooth.

    I have to say cutting is my least favorite thing. I know this it is a lot easier than it used to be, but, for some reason, it seems to take forever. Once I'm done with that, the rest goes pretty fast.

    Ok...this is going to sound terrible but it's the acutal quilting that I dread sometimes. I love the planning, cutting and peicing phases. I dont mind the endless pressing and sandwhiching parts. But hand quilting takes so long and I am still learning to machine quilt...so it's the phase of the process that frustrates me the most.

    I am with you on this! I machine quilt, and it seems that it takes me longer to do all of this than putting it all together. I keep looking - how many more 'rows' or panels to do :shock:

    Piecing is my least favorite to do. I'd rather be quilting!

    Now that I have the frame and mid-arm so I don't have to roll around on the floor pinning, my least favorite is pressing seams.

    Anything post top completion. Well, not really HATE-hate but sort of don't really like. If I ever want anything FINISHED, I can't afford to HATE the process coz it's all important.

    I am not crazy about cutting and measuring. Hand sewing the binding is also not my forte. I don't mind making the quilt sammy - I find it oddly enjoyable although sometimes it hurts my fingers. What I love most about quilting is free motion quilting! Yippee!

    I agree, I don't mind doing binding, I like challenges, but sandwiching drives me nuts.
