    I like picking out the fabric the best! Love to put colors together and visualize!

    I love the whole precess. Each step has some excitement in it for me. I love shopping for fabrics and then chosing thecolors and patterns to go with the design I want to make. Then the piecing...and of course I have to quilt it myself because by the time I'm done with the piecing, I know how I want the finishsed quilt to look and I can't describe that to another quilter. I just love quilting!

    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 DO have a huge stack of UFOs for exactly this reason! But before the piecing, I also love enlarging or reducing blocks, deciding how many blocks I want to make (invariably it's not one of the choices given!), calculating yardage and then...well, I hate the cutting but then I get to SEW!!!! And watch it all come together!!!!

    Buying and planning are not my fun activity. Cutting and piecing and the thrill of it all coming together, and looking beautiful (or not) is the best part.

    I would have to agree, my favorite part of quilting is shopping for the fabric and a close second is doing the planning.

    Honestly love it all!!! Enjoy choosing pattern fabrics and piecing, oh forgot tolerate cutting. Then love the feel as a quilt is basted, love hand quilting and binding or picking up a large one from the LA and admiring the work.

    the binding because then I know its almost done. I getso anxious to see the final outcome. But I do like most of the other parts except the cutting.

    Picking the fabrics and making the top. Quilting it together is my lease favourite thing to do. I really like sewing on the binding as well.

    Love all the process except the quilting which I hope to learn as I think it just finishes the whole project.
