I'm Quilting, But Now I Want to Piece
I always have several projects going at the same time and I think that I know why. Every time I'm in the final stages of completing a quilt, (as in quilting it,) I want to do piecing instead. It happens every time. Maybe it's because I really like piecing, but as for quilting, not so much.

I piece for several weeks, then get busy and quilt them.

I am having trouble finishing a quilt right now due to this. I think I finally put my finger on why I am not as enthusiastic about quilting part of the time. I like the process. Completing the quilt is a joy but itís more laborious than piecing and makes me tired faster.

Same here, the actual quilting process is hard for me.

Yeah...I think you guys are on to something. My shoulders just ache terribly when I'm quilting, due to having to manhandle these giant quilts.

I like the creative process. My mind is engaged. Quilting, to me, is drudgery. I think about how much I'll like having it finished.

I also usually have 4 or 5 tops ready to quilt, then get busy and get them quilted, then make more tops, sometimes I'll be basting one top and working on quilting, or making another top, but to do that, I need to have everything cut out.

Right now I am on a piecing rage! I know why. I have an accuquilt and have been putting together quilts right and left. My quilting machine is down right now. That doesn't help either. I have 11 tops made and working on another one. I feel your fingers.

Occasionally I will have a quilt that pieces and quilts perfectly. It makes me reluctant to finish it since my work so seldom goes well through the whole process.

I am quilting now also and I do not like this process. My FMQ is not good and I don't even want to stop and practice. I have three to quilt and then I can build some more or go on to smaller projects.
