    I hate cutting, like hand quilting, and really love binding because it means I'm nearly done.

    I think I like everything everyone's mentioned, but my favorite part(s) are:
    1. the look on someone's face when I hand them "their" quilt
    2. sleeping under a quilt that I've made

    I love piecing, and watching it grow.
    But really my favorite is putting in that last stitch and starting on my next project.....

    I love giving them to someone I know will use and appreciate them. I have completed all but one UFO and will tackle that one shortly. It will be with brocade fabric...A little scary for me as the fabric is so expensive. But I am down that one being the only one left to start sooooo my favorite part of that one will be to make the first block.

    the idea process, the sewing process (whether it's hand or machine)....and the sleeping under/giving away process...

    Gotta live another 100 yrs to finish all the ideas I have...

    I like everything about the process - some things are tedious and yes I make mistakes but the big picture makes me happy.

    Picking out the colors and sewing after them together after picking out the pattern. Can't say I like cutting the pieces cause it takes so long.

    I love the planning-cutting-piecing. I hate sandwiching (probably because I'm not good at that) and I was very surprised to find that I do not enjoy the quilting at all. I love bindings!

    Shopping for fabric has to be the absolute most fun part of quilting! Sandwiching the quilt is not so much fun. Hurts my back, and it seems no matter how careful I am at pinning the pieces together, it's never perfectly centered.

    I absolutely agree with you. I love that wonderful moment when you spread it out and really look at what you've done and all the little things you worried about have turned out just fine. It's all good but that is my absolute best.

    I love the piecing and mostly the hand quilting. I really don't like the cutting and putting the layers together.

    Putting the three pieces together to get ready to quilt. I always end up having a crease someplace on the back of the quilt. - J

    I basically love all aspects but my least favorite is getting it sandwiched and the final quilting done.

    Me....I love piecing the tops....I just love seeing the colors go together and the shapes take form.....like putting a puzzle together. I can just do this over and over and over. Gee, if I did this, I could have a never ending stack of UFOs. But it's like an addiction even while I am finishing a project I find myself day dreaming and my mind wandering on over to a new project.

    Anyone else have that problem....or am I bi-polar, tee hee. :-D
    I am just like you,I can piece tops for ever and keep thinking what one next.
    Me too!!! I lie awake at night thinking about the next project (not even close to finishing the first 10...)....what a great addiction!

    I can't come up with a "favorite" part, but sandwiching a quilt is my least favorite.

    Mine is the piecing, love to see all the beautiful blocks come to a reality, then I love the binding, only because I know the quilt will be finished!!!!

    I love it all except waiting for the quilt to get back from the longarmer. I would love to quilt my own but I just don't have the room for a longarm. I always worry if I am going to like what she does with it also.
