I quilt because it not only satisfies my creative side but just makes me plain old happy! I love playing with colors, patterns and fabric. It makes me happy to know that the folks I gift my quilts to are loving and enjoying using them as much as I enjoy making them. And when I am under my own quilts on a chilly evening, and I look around my living room and see my daughter and hubby snug under theirs, it just makes me smile.

I quilt because it gives me satisfaction to have been able to create something by manipulating fabric. That satisfaction is an important part of my well being. Quilting is my way of maintaining good mental health without the use of medication. In plain words, over the years I have had other hobbies but in each case it was my sanity saver. The fact that it gives me beautiful end products is a real bonus. I also find joy in being able to share the end result with someone else. Whether this is a dearly loved person or a total stranger the joy is the same. Of all the hobbies I have pursued over the years none has been as fulfilling as quilting because there are just so many different facets and avenues in quilting unlike most other hand work forms..

I feel the same way.  I love the look on their faces when they see the beautiful finished outcome of that pile of material I had on the table.  After it all finally comes together.  I also give all of mine away.  They just treasure them. (family)  Have two more going at the same time.  Hit a wall on the first one, had to take a break for a while.  This is my first visit on this site, I think it's great!  Will be checking it out more often.   Happy Quilting!                Pat

My husband does not understand. When I first started quilting he said if I wanted a blanket, why didn't I just go buy one??!  Sometimes I think he is right. Most of the time, not!

I quilt because I am Bipolar, and have a very low self esteem, and it calms me and makes me feel worthy. I quilt because I love all the colors and patterns are so intriguing. I am not a good quilter but I am a happy quilter.

Where dome get this reason??  I have almost all the rulers made, several rotary cutters, ditto mats, all the fabric in the world, a couple of sewing machines and a longarm so I guess if I need a reason to keep quilting, I'm gonna get me one of them too!!

If you want to get warm, go wrap up in a blanket.  If you want to feel loved, go wrap up in a quilt made by someone you know.  Therein lies the difference between a blanket and a handmade quilt.
