I love how life can be so difficult sometimes, but I can get lost in my quilting and make something beautiful during a time that wasn't so great. I guess I would call that quilting my troubles away. :)

It's hard to pin down one thing I love about quilting! I love being creative, the colours, and basically playing with fabric jigsaw puzzle pieces.

Cindy Dahlgren said...

I love quilting because it's a great way to show the people I love how much I care about them, and unlike the other art work and crafts I've done, the end product is useful too. I also love the colors and texture of fabrics, and the challenge of putting it all together to get a beautiful end product. jadahlgr at Yahoo dot Com

I love quilting. It gives me an opportunity to be creative, forces me to slow down and take my time, and is my therapy as well as my hobby. I love making quilts and items, with love, for family and friends, and it thrills me to know that my grandchildren are warm and cuddled in something I have made for them. It's a hug I can give them anytime, especially when I'm not there in person.

What I love most about quilting is the sharing that it leads too. I am fortunate enough to meet almost weekly with friends for a quilting day. I have always been a fabric lover since I was a little girl, and quilting fulfills needs on so many different levels. I can't imagine life without that joy.

karen said...

Linda Cejnar said...

I don't make or create anything in my job. Making quilts fills that desire to create. When I quilt, I create a warm, useful, tangible item for myself or a loved one. It gives me a great deal of satisfaction. ljbisme at msn dot com

I love playing with fabrics, colors and shapes ! Being creative makes me feel free !

Tracine Charest said...

I really enjoy the picking of a pattern and then playing with the color combinations to see how it all looks in the end. I have a limited attention span so usually adjust the pattern somehow because I didn't read it correctly. 😁 Everything usually all works out.

I love everything about quilting, but as a longarmer I love the quilting process probably best!

Rosemary B❤️ said...

I love Fat Quarter Shop. I am so glad I found you. Over the years you have been such an inspiration to all of us.
i just know personally, I am taking care of my 93 year old parents (they are adorable) and coming home in the evening and reading your creative and enthusiastic ideas and designs, makes me happy.
I love making things to give to people I love. I have some large quilt tops made but I am afraid to quilt them. The smaller quilts for babies and even wall hangings I love making them.
I know I am not the only person that hoards fabric, then cuts it up, sews it back together AND THEN WE GIVE IT AWAY!! Because it is the love that we have for making pretty things

Janna Saeger said...

I love the colors, the feel of fabric and the fact that I do this just for me.

Barb in Mi said...

I just love the creative process of making a quilt - and that you end up with something handmade in the end! Happy National Quilting Day!

Sorry, I will start again!
When the stresses of the world enter my life, I quilt my sorrows away!

Quilt Fabric Pizazz said...

There are two things I love about quilting. Choosing beautiful fabric with a special person in mind and the lovely smiles of the people I gift quilts to for a variety of reasons. Makes it all worth while - and the making of the quilt is my "meditation". Happy NQD - and the Fat Quarter Shop for this draw.

Nita M said...

I love the designing, the use of color but most of all I love the people I have met in the quilting community.

Ann in PA said...

Quilting keeps me out of trouble...unless I'm shopping for fabric! LOL
Seriously, quilting is relaxing and nothing is more comforting that decorating with quilts, plus they make perfect quilts.

Norissima said...

I love the fact that the final product of combined creativity and beautiful fabrics is both utilitarian and decorative.

Janell Baker said...

The process of creating quilts has comforted me as much as the recipients of the finished quilt. A day without working on a quilt feels a bit empty! Thank you for the generous giveaway contest!

Cathy Weber said...

Quilting is a personal challenge for me. I try to improve my stitching and precision every quilt I make and I love to look at the very first quilt I made and see how much I have learned since I first started this wonderful hobby.

Amy DeCesare said...

Because of quilting, I have friends all over the world that I would never have known otherwise. One of my dearest friends lives in England. Also, quilting has brought me closer to my sister. We love to talk about fabrics, colors, and patterns together.

Margo said...

Quilting with my sister and best friend bring so much joy to my heart! Each piece put together is like a puzzle and brings a memory to share with friends and family

Carlene said...

Marrying into a family of grown children, it was hard for them to accept me as the new love of their dad's life after the death of their mom. Making each one a quilt and knowing the time and effort it took to pick out and complete each one for them has brought us a step closer together. I love this fact--seeing the look on their faces and watching them use the quilts has warmed my heart tremendously.

gigi said...

I love the FABRIC!

Karen said...

Quilting is my therapy! I solve so many problems during this "me" time!

Doreen said...

Quilting satisfies both arts and crafts----and I love fabric. I make scrappy quilts using old clothes as well as new fabric that I just HAVE to have!

Anna said...

1. Friendship
2. Quilts stay done. Housework has to be done over and over and over. When a quilt is done it stays that way.

Chiska said...

I love the concrete accomplishment that it gives me. It's hard in my life as a Mom to see what I'm doing as doing something. Quilting gives that to me.

I love the fabric and also the surprise when I make a quilt for someone and give it to them. The expression on their face is priceless.

I love how sitting at my machine gives me time to relax and reflect on how the project at hand will bless another person. Quilting is not only history being passed on but Love that will wrap you up even when the loved one has gone:)

Christy Miller said...

The colors, the design, rolling around in the fabric, throwing it up in the air, finishing and cuddling the quilt. Most of all thinking about the person and praying for them as I make the quilt. No, wait,did I mention the happiness I feel when I enter my quilt room and can create.

Linda said...

I love the look in a loved one's eyes when I give them a quilt, especially much later and they're still loving it (especially my grandsons!). I get pleasure in making a charity quilt that I know will warm the heart of someone less fortunate than myself. Thanks for this chance to win as I love your shop and all that you share with us!

Sorcha girl said...

Lou Wotzke said...

I love the many personal purposes and expressions that quilting allows me to express

Donna Kuykendall said...

I came to quilting eight years ago when I retired, but I had been dreaming about being a quilter since I visited my husband's aunt's home in Americus, Georgia twenty five years ago. I could not believe I got to sleep with a quilt on the bed and several hanging from the quilt stand and armoire. So I started taking quilting classes at a local quilt shop and made several great friends along the way. Quilting has given me the joy and confidence to express my love for others in a tangible way.

Cathy Jackson said...

I love that quilting is not only a creative outlet, but it also brings people together in so many ways. Those that we quilt with, gift a quilt to and meet along our quilting journey. This year my mother gave me Lori Holt's Farm Girl Vintage Book for my birthday and I also started Pat Sloan's Splendid Sampler QAL and I have not done anything in years, but these two things have really sparked me and gotten me on track. I had no stash to pull from, so I am building that and enjoying the time spent quilting with my mother and others at or LQS BOM class for Farm Girl Vintage. This is definitely a quilty year for me!

I mostly make quilts that I give away to special people in my life. It's like I'm giving them a small part of myself. Quilting is my way of making the world a more beautiful, and warmer, place. I give the gift of a hug on demand -- they just have to wrap themselves in the quilt to receive it.

Marilyn Hodge said...

I can't believe there was ever a time when I did not quilt! I have sewn my entire life and enjoyed it but never to the extent that I love quilting. It fills my days, my nights, and my dreams. Fat Quarter Shop has been part of that for many many years. Thank you!

I love planning for making quilts, shopping for fabrics, trying new techniques, and dreaming about quilting. I love cutting fabrics, piecing, sewing applique, and sharing the finished product. Quilting brings joy and happiness to my life (and, I hope it brings happiness and comfort to the lives of the recipients).

I just love how so many little bits and pieces and shapes can be transformed into a block and then a beautiful quilt. And that I can do it!!
Thanks for the opportunity to win!
