    I hate sandwiching!!! Also, I'd rather not do ANY appliquing either hand or machine. But, I love choosing the pattern, figuring fabric, selecting fabrics, etc.

    I still do hand quilting and marking the quilting design on to the top is my downfall. I have many tops just waiting to be marked. I have purchased a Bernina with a BSR and one of these days I will master it and start machine quilting. Then marking will not be as necessary.

    I love piecing, but what I hate the most is there is only 24 hours in a day to play with it.

    I hate the sandwiching. I also have a dickens sometimes with the binding. But all in all I have enjoyed the final results. Now I need to make myself a quilt and keep it.

    I agree. It is the most frustrating part for me. I'm too impatient!

    I can't get down on the floor any longer -Well I might get down, but getting up would be questionable

    I am not fond of crawling on the floor to pin the quilt together. Now with back problem it is even more difficult. I am going to try spray basting next.

    BSR is a stitch regulator used in machine quilting. Really helps keep stitches even.

    I can't say there is a part of quilting I like least---I have something I like about every part of it. I never allow unwashed fabric into my sewing room! The moment it comes in the house, it's in the washer. That way, I never have to wonder if I have washed a certain fabric when I am getting ready to sew. I used to dislike handfinishing my bindings---I piece and quilt on my machines---but recently I find I enjoy the task of handwork on the bindings.

    On another note, it is great to be back to the Quilting Board. My computer has been 'down' while my DH completely wiped the hard drive and then reload everything in order to (hopefully) get rid of the virus that has been bugging me for months and months. He essentially made me a new computer!
    I hate the part when you think your machine has broken down. Nope, operator error.

    I think the cutting and measuring part is what bothers me most.
    I'm terrible at measuring. I actually break out in a sweat over it.
    Everything else is a breeze for me, relatively speaking. I don't mind binding at all. And usually I hand quilt which is so relaxing. If it's queen or king size, I send it to my quilting lady who is an angel. 8-)

    And I adore the quilting part, just would like to find someone to trade with - they piece my quilts and I'll quilt for them! I don't like hand work, but I love the look of hand-sewn bindings so I do them.

    lol - DITTO here!!

    I really enjoy hand stitching the binding. I use tiny stitches (approx. 10-12 per inch). I find it very relaxing.
    ((ok so I'm odd :roll:))
    I love the designing and piecing of the quilts. I even like hand stitching the binding but the quilting part is the part that gives me the most headaches. Maybe that is why I have so many tops made and stacked in the corner!!!!!!!
