I like choosing the fabric, cutting, and sewing the pieces together. I also like applique quite a bit.

Don't really like putting the backing and batting together.

I love the quilting process so much that sometimes I just sandwich two pieces of fabric together and quilt them just for fun.

I love all the planning, and laying out designs on graph paper to be colored in with colored pencils. Brings out the 6 year-old in me. I also love the math (not that it always add up, lol)

Then I love to audition the fabric and pick the perfect combinations.

Cutting - so/so, sewing the blocks - OK, putting the rows into a top - allright....and the rest is why I have UFOs.

Me too...I also really enjoy the quilting, binding is great too...It is very satisfying and it frames the whole quilt.

Aside from buying fabric, sewing on the binding by hand is my favorite part. To me, it means my quilt is done and all my hard work will soon get to be enjoyed!! I also like the peacefullness of just sitting and sewing. I would love to hand quilt, but my arthritis would never let me do an entire quilt.

I love the excitement of finding that oh I can't wait to get started pattern, picking the fabric and had quilting and then the binding. Really I love it all. Isn't it why we are here because we love quilting and sharing

Since I am relatively new at this I find that planning and designing it is fun.
I love to quilt with my walking foot on the machine.
I do not like the cutting process!

No doubt: I enjoy hand quilting most, but I also like designing my own quilting patterns.
