    Making blocks and binding. I like to do the binding by hand. It gives me a connection to the quilt.

    i love to come up with pattern/color combinations, but if i have to pick a favorite, it is hand quilting.

    Buying patterns, and piecing blocks. It used to be hand applique, but hands went bad.

    Sewing the blocks and hand quilting are tied in my opinion. My least favorite are cutting and ironing.

    Piecing. I stink at everything else. :D Come to think of it, I'm not that great at piecing either. I'm just a wanna be. I'm real good at buying things, just not using them. :shock:

    Binding--without a doubt my very favorite part. Mainly because that means I'm almost finished and get to start another one.

    That is a hard one! I enjoy all parts, but I think it is the admiration and thanks I get when giving one as a gift. But, I do like completing something, especially if it has been in the stack of UFO's for a long time.

    deciding on colors, finding just the right fabrics and then piecing the top....the rest is just frustrating

    I love all the steps but my favorite is the quilting of it. I put on music and relax and quilt.

    I like all of it with as many new gadgets as I can find. Machine quilting all the way. I hand sew the binding to the back of my quilts, only because it looks much neater.

    Putting fabrics together and cutting. Binding is fun, too.
