I quilt because it is good therapy and satisfying to share my love for quilts with my friends and family.

I quilt because I love the combination of thinking and meditating that quilting brings me - while I am in the act of creation, and later when I muse on what my mind and hands have brought into being.

I like to quilt because I like putting things together. Its like a puzzle in my mind that I have to make the pieces so I can put it together and enjoy the finished product.

I quilt because it is therapeutic, calming, and the end result is always beautiful.

I love working with fabric and color, but mostly because I love making something that people I care about can use to give them love and comfort!

I quilt because I love feel and smell of the fabric, the rhythm of the machine and the ability to create something totally new from just a few pieces of fabric.  I love everything about quilting!

I quilt because I always have.  I love the whole process of creating fabric art to use, admire and covet LOL.  I love to share what I create, to teach classes and spend as much time as possible with my quilting buddies.

I quilt because I like watching those pieces of fabric come together into something unique. Also, because it closes my mind to daily stress  :)

I quilt because I have always sewn since childhood - it's a natural progression for a seamstress because clothes can't cover the whole bed.

I quilt because I have no other choice.  My life has meaning because I quilt.  And the bonus is that other like having me quilt too.  Of course it goes without saying that "Quilting Arts" has helped me tremendously to become the artist I am today.  Thank you, gang!

I quilt because it chronicles a life.  Bits and pieces, reminders of  places we've been.

The journey stitched in colors and textures and emotions.  A quilt warms the soul of those who need it in their colorful journey through life!

"I quilt because I enjoy fabrics and what happens when I touch them"  I quilt for Project Linus, I quilt for my family, I quilt for myself and I love sharing the love.  It's my expression and creative outlet, it's my view of the world around me.  And best of all, it's fun!  Love getting Quilting Arts because it's filled with inspiration and techniques that I think would be interesting & want to connect with other artists who feel the same way.

it makes me feel creative.  I just finished a quilted/paper wall hanging for above our fireplace......did a lot of strip piecing on it.  It's great to use colors that go nicely with the wall colors.......everyone thinks you have a knack for decorating!

I quilt because it energizes me and allows something deep inside to find expression. Combining fabric pieces with snippets of yarn or ribbon, then adding hand-stitching, buttons, foil, paint, lace and assorted embellishments brings me great joy.
