Skip the binding: frame that quilt! (tutorial + fabric giveaway)

How-to-frame-a-quilt

Shortcuts. Time-savers. Beelines!

Around the holidays, quilters look to make lots of gifts—and they look for ways to make those gifts more quickly.

Choosing smaller quilts is a smart start (size matters). But what if you could also cut out an entire quiltmaking step—one you thought had to be completed every time?

Now that’s starting to sound as speedy as Santa’s sleigh!

Scroll down to see A Cut Above author Gerri Robinson’s secret for finishing quilts quickly—and get ready to say bye-bye to binding.


GIVEAWAY ALERT! Gerri sent us a gorgeous bundle of her latest Red Rooster fabric line, called “Classic Elegance.” She’s asked us to give this bundle of joy to one lucky winner!

Autums-Glow-framed-quiltHow to Hang a Small Quilt: Frame It!

From A Cut Above: Turn Charm Squares, Strips, and More into Beautiful Patchwork by Gerri Robinson

Several quilts in A Cut Above are framed. I use suggestions from my local frame shop when preparing my quilts for framing. Here are their recommendations:

  • Add a 2″-wide border to the pieced top. It’s not necessary to match the border to the quilt top since the border will be pulled and pinned to the back of an acid-free board prior to framing.

  • Layer the quilt top with batting and backing; then quilt as desired, leaving the 2″-wide outer border unquilted. Once the quilting is complete, fold the outer border toward the center of the quilt and carefully trim the backing and batting ¼" inside the quilt-top edge. Do not bind your quilt.
    spacer 10px deep
  • Lay the frame front side down on a table. Lay the quilt over the frame, ensuring the quilt is straight. Add the back of the frame and slide the frame clips in place. You may choose to finish your framed quilt with a glass front. For the framed designs in A Cut Above, I chose not to add glass.

We were thrilled to see Deb, one of our Facebook followers, join our #imadeitmyselfie challenge and show off her version of “Do-Si-Do,” one of Gerri’s framed quilt designs from A Cut Above:

Framed-Do-Si-Do-quilt-two-ways
Gerri’s quilt is on the left; Deb’s is on the right.

Deb says, “I wasn’t sure how this would hold up on the porch, but after one year it still looks the same. Kinda of wish I had splurged for the glare-free glass.” We think it looks lovely, Deb!

Of course, Gerri’s big quilts are quite captivating too:

  • The binding, for sure. When I’ve gotten this far with a quilt, I love relaxing with it and hand stitching down the binding.

    —Lynn D in NC on November 13, 2015
  • What a fabulous idea! The quickest step for me is the cutting. The slowest, probably the quilting. Thanks for the inspiration and the generous giveaway!

    Jocelyn on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing is the quickest for me. The selecting of fabric and pattern take the most time. Sure would love to win this, so thanks for the chance.

    —Karen DH on November 13, 2015
  • Binding a quilt takes the least amount of time for me.

    —Nancy Lanier on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing. I like to do all my cutting first, then arrange the pieces and piles efficiently. then I sew up a storm

    —lavonne hansen on November 13, 2015
  • The part of the quilt that is fastest for me is the actual quilting. It is my favorite part as well. It is relaxing and just finishes the project.

    —Lorna on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest step, for me, is the binding.

    —Deb M on November 13, 2015
  • sewing – cut, arrange to be efficient, sew up a storm

    —lavonne hansen on November 13, 2015
  • my quickest step for me is binding as I can’t wait to snuggle under my latest masterpiece

    —Jody Hogan on November 13, 2015
  • For me, the quickest step depends on the project. I am blessed to have a long arm machine, so often the quilting can be the least time consuming step as long as i choose a simple allover design.

    —Colleen on November 13, 2015
  • Hmmm. Cutting can go fast. Quilting on the machine can go fast, too. Thanks for this giveaway!!

    Denny on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is the quickest step for me

    —Dana on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest step for me is the sewing. It takes me forever to cut out my quilts

    —Debbie Fowler on November 13, 2015
  • I think the cutting is the quickest and the most exciting!! That means I am starting a new project!! 🙂

    —ERIN EARL on November 13, 2015
  • I like the whole quilting process, but the quickest ? I don’t know, but I just love it when I take it off the quilting frame. I do hand quilting.

    —Paulette Doerhoff on November 13, 2015
  • The cutting if there is a way to strip piece then cut I’m there.

    —Cathy on November 13, 2015
  • I’m a cutter! I love it! It’s like a puzzle trying to figure how to get all the cuts out of the smallest amount of fabric!

    —Danette Roundy on November 13, 2015
  • The sewing is the quickest part for me.

    —Lynda Black on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is always the quickest for me, even on queen or king sized quilts, because by that point I am so thrilled with the quilt, I can’t wait to see it on the bed. At earlier stages, I am likely to be distracted by another quilt idea, and start on yet another quilt project. Speaking of which, I love that "Classic Elegance" fabric line, and can imagine using it in a quilt, which I would start right away!

    —Lynn Miller on November 13, 2015
  • Doing the binding is the quickest for me, and I love doing it! It means that my quilt is almost finished, and that’s always exciting.

    —Jennifer on November 13, 2015
  • The piecing usually goes the fastest for me. Perhaps I am more confident then because I have sewn clothing for many years. The other steps of quilting are where I have to take more time to get things right. Thank you for offering this giveaway.

    —Susan Ecklund on November 13, 2015
  • Though I like all the steps of quilting, I think the quickest for me is the cutting. Thank you for a chance to win this beautiful fabric!

    —Lin on November 13, 2015
  • My Dad liked one of my blocks so much, he had it matted and professionally framed. And then he made me sign the mat!

    —Jenny on November 13, 2015
  • I love the cutting and sewing the best. The rest I have a difficult time with so I have all sorts of tops made but not finished. I love it though. i would love the chance to win the book and fabric.

    —Patricia D. Roberts on November 13, 2015
  • The easiest part of making a quilt to me is the construction process. All those little stacks of colors waiting to be joined into something beautiful. It’s like opening psckages on Christmas morning when they come together. They can all be the same or each one different. It feels like coloring with fabric to me!!

    —Debbie Painter on November 13, 2015
  • Rotary cutting is the quickest and easiest step for me, but I can speed through the sewing, too. Hand-sewing binding really slows me down.

    —Tesuque on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest quilting step for me is the cutting. I think it also the most enjoyable part for me since that is when I choose the fabrics and decide about fussy cutting. I love fussy cutting to get that extra special touch in my blocks and quilts. Thank you for the opportunity to win your Classic Elegance fabrics, I love the colors and romantic prints!

    —Maryam Hassan on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing. Probably because I find that part the most enjoyable?

    —Marcia Jacobs on November 13, 2015
  • This is a splendid way to decorate your home when not having the space for hanging a larger quilt.

    —Connie Clabaugh on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing’s probably the quickest part for me. Binding is my least favorite and always seems to take so long, which is why these framed quilts appeal to me! This giveaway looks awesome, btw!

    —Laura B. on November 13, 2015
  • Right now, the sewing…but I haven’t done anything above a beginners level!

    —Barbie on November 13, 2015
  • I would have to say the quilting.

    —Chris on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is the quickest depending on the size of the quilt. Binding is next. Piecing and quilting are the most enjoyable. But truthfully, I love it all. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Judith on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing is definitely the quickest step, since I am careful to cut accurately, and the quilting and binding steps are much more time intensive. With that said, sewing is my favorite step since I just love all the features of my Babylock machine, especially the laser beam guide which is incredibly helpful in accurate piecing.

    —Jadine on November 13, 2015
  • Piecing a quilt top is absolutely the quickest part for me. I take my time choosing the right fabrics for a project. Then I very carefully cut the pieces. Once the top is pieced, quilting can go a couple of different ways. Sometimes painstakingly slowly. Other times it is pretty quick. I hand stitch my bindings so that can take some time too. Every part is equally enjoyed.

    —chriss on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest part of quilting for me is usually the cutting. But there are exceptions … right now I am working on a traditional sampler quilt and the actual sewing is faster. Binding is not faster because it is my least favorite part 🙂

    —Margaret on November 13, 2015
  • CHain piecing! I finally caught onto that after reading many of your posts…tried it and my runners/quilts come together so much faster. Thank you!

    —Diane B on November 13, 2015
  • I love to cut quilts! Starting a new project by cutting and organizing the sewing steps is my favorite part, hence many started projects in my sewing room!

    —Deb on November 13, 2015
  • The fastest step on my last quilt was quilting, because I took it to my LQS to have it quilted by my long-arm quilter friend. This was the first time I had ever done this, and I was thrilled with the results. Not only was my quilt finished in time to meet a deadline, but Susan did a beautiful job! Thank you for the opportunity to win a terrific book and some gorgeous fabric!

    —JLouise on November 13, 2015
  • The sewing is the quickest for me and I dread the binding….SEW framing a quilt is the perfect ending!

    —Val on November 13, 2015
  • I am an older woman (80) who has gotten into quilting recently. I would love to be able to display my smaller quilts like this. Please pick me!

    —Andrea Witt on November 13, 2015
  • I enjoy the actual quilting the most because it gives me freedom of expression.

    —Mary on November 13, 2015
  • It depends on the quilt. Binding may be the least amount of time I spend on a quilt, but it’s not my favorite. I love the sewing part. I love the fabric you are giving away!! And the designs in the book.

    —Kris on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is the quickest for me. Back when I used to sew clothing; I would wish for elves to cut fabric for me. I’m still finding bags of fabric & patterns that the elves somehow missed. Piecing goes quickly until I get to the border stage. I now have 3 centers on the bed to add borders to but they go well with the 10 bordered tops (also on bed) that need to be quilted. By the time I get to binding, I am so happy to being close to finishing a quilt that the process flies by.

    —DebMac on November 13, 2015
  • i love precuts. They are time savers since some of the cutting and color selection is done for you, and with all the beautiful patterns what’s not to love.

    —lynda on November 13, 2015
  • I think cutting is the fastest.

    —Ruth Roesler on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest step for me is the binding – it’s my favorite too – ’cause that means a finished quilt!! Thanks so much for the chance to win 🙂

  • It always depends on the quilt I’m making but normally the cutting is the quickest.

    —Hildy on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing is quickest, cutting may be shorter but for me far more tedious

    —Anita on November 13, 2015
  • I find the quickest step to be the sewing. I use the assembly line method.

    —Trudi Forrest on November 13, 2015
  • Although it’s probably my least favorite, binding is probably the quickest step as up until I got my new sewing machine this summer, I have been quilting by hand.

    Carolyn Sefkow on November 13, 2015
  • My strength is definitely in selecting fabrics, designing, and piecing. The quickest quilting step for me is always the sewing …I am a bit of a perfectionist with that scant 1/4 inch and am a merciless frogger! I adore chain piecing and always plan ahead so I can assemble as much of a quilt top as possible this way. I find cutting to be tedious and quilting to be challenging–I send many tops out as I just don’t have the ability or creativity to obtain the custom look I love. Most of my quilts are personal gifts or charity quilts, and I want them all equally filled with care and love! I adore the reds in the "Classic Elegance" collection and with the ideas in "A Cut Above", I can see a whole new way to make gifts of my quilts! I can only say, "Pick me! Pick me! Pretty please!"

    —Marcia Sanders on November 13, 2015
  • I enjoy the binding because it means I am almost finished and can enjoy the fruit of my labor!

    —Helen on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest step for me is the binding, but I love the idea of framing some pieces as well.

    —Gail Bartlett on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest quilting step for me is the actual sewing of the project. Maybe it’s because I love seeing the quilt come together so nicely!

    —Linda on November 13, 2015
  • Depends on size of quilt and pattern. For example a miniature made from very small pieces that still need to be cut and blocks squared up, the binding would be fastest. Conversely a lap quilt with large blocks made from precuts would be faster to cut

    —Barbara on November 13, 2015
  • Binding goes quickest for me. Back when I used to sew clothing; I would wish for elves to cut the fabric. I’m still finding bags of fabric and patterns. Piecing goes quickly until I get to the border stage. I now have 3 centers on the bed that need borders. They go well with the 10 bordered tops (also on bed) that need quilting. By the time I am ready to bind a quilt I am so happy to be finishing a quilt that it goes quickly. Or maybe it is because I so rarely get to bind a quilt that it goes quickly???

    —DebMac on November 13, 2015
  • As a rule I find the cutting, sewing & binding to be about equal although there are always exceptions. Quilting the top definitely takes the longest, but is also the part i enjoy the most whether I do it by hand or machine. I have often thought about framing some of my orphan blocks, but wasn’t sure how to go about it. The hint about the 2″ unquilted border is fabulous. The fabric bundle is gorgeous and I sure would have a ball finding the perfect quilt to use it on.

    —Janet Espeleta on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is the quickest part of quilting for me. Framing the small quilts is a great idea!

    —Marianne on November 13, 2015
  • Probably the sewing step although I am very slow on all steps.

    —Lynda on November 13, 2015
  • The cutting goes more quickly for me when I’m making a quilt. I love all of the processes for quilt making, so every step is a joy!

    —Susan Stanton on November 13, 2015
  • My best part of quilting is the binding. After the hard work of selecting fabric, sewing and quilting it, it’s the grand finale. Then you get to see your quilt finished.

    —Cecile Emond on November 13, 2015
  • Great quilts – I love Rugby Stars!!
    The binding is the quickest step for me

    —Gill on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest part for me is the actual sewing once all my pieces are cut out.

    —Evelyn Lorenzini on November 13, 2015
  • The sewing is the quickest step for me, once I’ve cut everything out just sitting to sew is relaxing and fun !!

    —Debbie Ingram on November 13, 2015
  • For me the cutting is the quickest part of quilting. I hate the squaring up of the quilt part. I’d love to win the Classic Elegance.

    —Kris Walter on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is the quickest part of making a quilt for me. It also means the quilt is finished (unless I need to add a label)! I love Gerri’s fabrics and designs – thanks for the chance to win both!

    —Janice on November 13, 2015
  • The fastest, easiest step is cutting – Stacking, squaring and cutting multiple pieces makes it faster and quicker to get the pieces ready to make into blocks. The other steps are longer and require more time, for me.

    —Marsha Hennigan on November 13, 2015
  • I love the cutting and it seems to go faster for me.

    —Becky on November 13, 2015
  • What a great idea! I especially like "Trail of Stars" above.

    —Betty on November 13, 2015
  • Wow, these are really pretty! I like the look of it, very country/farmhouse! Also a great idea for the new baby coming!

    —Sunnie on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting.

    —Becky on November 13, 2015
  • sewing

    —Pat on November 13, 2015
  • I find binding the quickest and most relalaxing. Everything is done by the time you do the last part of finishing the binding by hand.

    —Claudia Hudson on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is the fastest, but designing the quilt is the most fun!

    —Judy Maggio on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing is the fastest part of my quilting. probably because it is also my favorite and I try to chain piece. love these framed quilts! and the rugby star, too. thanks!

    —Diana D on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is the fastest for me. Sewing takes the longest.
    Beautiful collection and book! Thanks.

    Luiza on November 13, 2015
  • I find the binding to be the quickest part of a quilt. Of course, that would depend on the size of the quilt and intricacy of the pattern in some cases.
    The bundle of fabric is beautiful and I’ve been considering framing quilts for years. This is a great giveaway! Thank you for the opportunity.

    —Chris P on November 13, 2015
  • I think for me the quickest step is the sewing. I have "sewing Sundays" where no one is allowed to bother me and I can sew to my heart’s desire. It helps to recharge me for the upcoming work week.

    —Maureen on November 13, 2015
  • I would have to say that the piecing (sewing) goes the fastest. The best part would be the binding because I get to see a finished product that I may not have liked until it was completed.

    —Brenda on November 13, 2015
  • I’m pretty quick on doing binding by hand but that doesn’t mean I’m opposed to skipping that step. 🙂 Cutting is pretty quick if it is a pattern I can use my AccuQuilt Go! die for or I can use precuts.

    —Bonni Feltz on November 13, 2015
  • I actually think for me the binding may be the quickest.

    —Tammy on November 13, 2015
  • Great ideas that I could use. I seem to always be drowning in last minute gifts I need to finish up in the weeks before Christmas. I love the frame ideas and that Red Rooster fabric!!

    —Patricia V on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is quickest because I love the choosing colors, choosing pattern and piecing. The quilting, not so much but I do it if the item is small. Binding? ummmmm nope!

    —Nancy Eriksen on November 13, 2015
  • for me binding is the fastest part of the quilt making. It doesn’t seem so but think, at this point I am at the final stage of creating yet another project made with love. Someone will shortly cuddle under it and feel so very special, yes the someone can be me but my experience tells me that the joy is greater in giving that keeping.

    Sewing on the binding is also very therapeutic. Sitting in the quiet (or not depending on what is going on around me) the focus is still just on my new creation. And at that point the anticipation of the new project bubbles to the surface/ Life is good

    —doris on November 13, 2015
  • The part of the quilt making steps that go quickest for me is the binding. I usually get that done in a night or two. The cutting would be the next. Piecing seems to be a little time here and there. I love to hand quilt so that takes me the longest to do. I love all the steps and am thankful for the time I get to do them.

    —Robin on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is the quickest for me–especially if I include precuts 🙂

    —Robyn on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is not one of my favorite things but once that’s done I get energized to sit at my machine and start sewing. Husband and housework are usually neglected until the top is complete then I go straight to my longarm for quilting!

    —Crystal Smith on November 13, 2015
  • To start my favorite step is the cutting. But the fastest step for me is the binding. At my quilt class last month we were showed how to do binding and with all the little tips and suggestions from the more experienced quilters my binding went faster and was more professional looking.

    —Sue on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest quilting step for me is the piecing. I will read through the instructions for a pattern and decide if the cutting/piecing instructions are the quickest method for me. I like to strip sew my cuts together and create my rows usually 2 at a time this way.

    —Marie Alexander on November 13, 2015
  • The binding, because I do it all by machine. I actually enjoy doing it now that I have learned how to miter the corners.

    Marsha Ransom on November 13, 2015
  • I like to make a throw to save on time. I will cut everything out and then chain piece each section. This seems to make the whole quilt making process go faster.

    —Andy Dagg on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is my solace. Not only is it the final step in my newest quilt, it is my opportunity to sit so comfortably in my arm chair with great music and truly relax with my hobby/passion.

    —Elizabeth on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing is the quickest for me and also exciting to see my project come together using my Singer Featherweight sewing machine!

    —Mary Elaine Dunphy on November 13, 2015
  • Which is the quickest step of quilt making? I really don’t know…. I enjoy each process, and never think of the time taken. BTW, I absolutely love the Trail of Stars framed quilt. The others didn’t grab me at first but that one did. Then I went back and looked at them all… they are lovely.
    It would be fun to make a few of these for Christmas presents, as well as for my own walls, lol.
    Carolyn.

    —Carolyn Kerr on November 13, 2015
  • I love the sewing part. Putting the pieces together once it is cut is so easy as long as you have cut correctly.

    —Julie on November 13, 2015
  • Of course, it depends on the pattern, but the sewing is the most enjoyable, so it seems the fastest.

    —gail on November 13, 2015
  • What is the quickest quilt step? That is a hard one to answer! Sometimes reading and understanding the pattern is difficult. But if written clearly, cutting is usually a breeze. And I love to finish with a flange or flat felled binding, finding them both simple to execute. But I do love the look of the framed quilts, and want to give that method a try too. Basically, I love each step of the quilting process from selecting fabrics, to the final stitch of the binding.

    Sharon on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting! Certainly cutting! I’m just not speedy, and choosing a design to quilt takes me forever!

    —Helen J Grantham on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is the easiest and quickest of the steps for me. My friends think I’m weird to enjoy binding, but I do!

    —Mary Ann Fogleman on November 13, 2015
  • That which takes the actual least amount of time for me is the binding. It is my least favorite part of quilting, which really does not mean much since I love all aspects of quilting.

    —Lori S on November 13, 2015
  • I’m always puzzled when folks don’t like binding. For me, it is the joyful, this is almost finished, part of the quilt. I love to sew it on the front by machine and hand stitch it to the back. It reminds me of sitting on my grandmother’s porch and piecing by hand. Anyway, that’s the part that goes quickly for me and I hope to win the fabric and book you are so generous to share with us. Love the ideas for framing small quilts. Thanks, Debbie

    Debbie Holley on November 13, 2015
  • My shortcut…I learned to quilt in the 70’s, taking a course at our local night school. It was all templates, tracing, cutting with scissors. I never did finish that quilt!! Years later, I took up quilting once again, and boy had things changed!! Rotary cutters and rulers are the best shortcut ever!! I just love gathering my fabric, and cutting out my projects! So much quicker and easier…

    —Rosemary on November 13, 2015
  • I’m a stickler for accurate cutting and piecing, and always make a prototype block before I start a quilt, so initially I am a slowpoke. I find the quilting a challenge, only because I never know what to do. Binding is the easiest step for me.

    Gail G on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is the quickest for me. I like to have my measured strips ready to grab and go!

    —Kathy E. on November 13, 2015
  • Love this idea! I look forward to trying this. The fastest part step for me is the binding as I machine bind. It took a while to get it the way I like it, but I’m getting happier with my results. I could also say that quilting is my fastest because I don’t do it – my husband does!!

    —Laura on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting, I find is the quickest for me.

    —Phyllis on November 13, 2015
  • For me, piecing is the quickest part.

    Since I like to quilt by hand, that would be the longest.

    I like the idea of framing small quilted creations, would love to win this package.

    —Sandra Brunton on November 13, 2015
  • Love the idea of framing quilts. Stunning! Love the whole process of quilting but binding is probably the quickest for me. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Kim on November 13, 2015
  • I think the sewing is probably the most fun. Its interesting to see how the bits and pieces of fabric come together and create something beautiful. I do a lot of my binding with my machine – much faster than hand stitching the binding. I have a couple of stitches on my machine that I like to use.

    —Kathy H on November 13, 2015
  • I have found a simple and quilt method for making half-square triangles. With right sides together, sew all four sides of 2 large squares of fabric. Then rotary cut diagonally both ways, from corner to corner without moving the fabric. Then cut down the centre and across in the centre. You have made 4 cuts in total and you have 8 identical half-square triangles. Square them up when finished.
    Formula = unfinished half square triangle size…double it and add 1/2 inch. This is the size you will need the initial two large squares of fabric to be.

    —Marg on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is the quickest step for me because I have had all the time to think about it during construction.
    Now Gerri has given me another option… My next table runner will be framed and glassed. It will stay flat, won’t stain or need laundering, and still protect my wood dining room table from moisture. Now I will be able to take my Grandmother’s Water pitcher from the side buffet and put front and center to enjoy its beauty and practicality!
    Thank you for the great idea and opportunity to win a prize I will use and enjoy!!

    What a lovely idea, Marianne, thanks for sharing it! –Jenny

  • cutting takes the longest, making sure I measure twice & cut once – correctly 🙂 binding is the fastest..

    Debbie D on November 13, 2015
  • Love the fabric, I can hardly wait for you to draw my name. Thanks!

    —Kathy Duval on November 13, 2015

    —Emily Remster on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing is the best part for me. I see the quilt come to life! MAGIC

    —Lanetta on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest step for me is the binding, and then it’s done. Ta da.

    —Virginia Over on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest step for me is the binding. It’s the "ta do" point, and so satisfying.

    —Glenna Pocock on November 13, 2015
  • For me cutting goes the quickest, I love the idea of framing quilts. I never actually thought of doing that. Learn something new everyday. Thank you for the chance to win.

    —Darlene on November 13, 2015
  • Piecing, especially chain piecing, is usually the quickest part of quilt making for me. Of course it depends on the difficulty of the quilt in progress!

    —Linda B on November 13, 2015
  • I think cutting goes fast, I am excited to start and get to the sewing and quilting. I tried framing a quilt before wish I would of had your great directions. Thanks!

    —Joyce on November 13, 2015
  • I think cutting in the quickest part for me. I have several quilts cut out, but not sewn together. Quilting is the slowest part for me. I love the idea of framing small quilts and would love to win Gerri’s book and fabric. Thanks for the giveaway!

    —Deb G. in VA on November 13, 2015
  • What a great idea-framing! I think the sewing/piecing process is the quickest for me. That book looks awesome!!

    —Rose on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting up yardage for quilting is the quickest part of the process for me. I chain piece at a medium speed and quilt slowly. Binding just crawls.

    —Stephanie on November 13, 2015
  • The sewing is the quickest step for me. Love the framed quilt! I’m going to try that! Thanks for the giveaway!

    —Sherry Fram on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest step in quilt making for me is the cutting step. Most of my cutting is done with a rotary cutter, ruler and rotary mat.

    —Joann Nace on November 13, 2015
  • sewing – it’s like putting a puzzle together

    —Kathy Luehrs on November 13, 2015
  • Actually, I love binding quilts! I’d love to bind one made from this beautiful fabric line 🙂

    —judy in IL on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is the quickest for me! I am in love with the little quilts to put in frames – have been collecting frames but haven’t had the time yet to make the quilts. Interesting that you don’t bind them – makes sense!

    Love the package. Thanks, j

    —Jennifer Evans on November 13, 2015
  • I would love to see ways of finishing quilts by framing. What great gifts that would be. Plus who can resist a bundle of material.

    —Joan on November 13, 2015
  • I think my quickest part is the planning. Once it is planned and organized I can get to it and make the whole thing happen. After attending quilt shows, such as the one in Houston, I feel quilting is a real art form that us in the quilting community have discovered but the general public doesn’t know. I like all parts of quilting but the best is planning the project and working through the completion and seeing the finished work!

    —Marcia on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing goes by the fastest because it’s the part I like best. Binding is the most tedious, and since most of my quilts are small, the binding takes too great a percentage of the time. So I think framing is a great idea for small, decorative or art quilts.

    —Jane on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is quickest for me. I do it all by machine for most of my quilts.

    —Sherri G on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is the quickest – although i do like to spend some time auditioning the colors before actually cutting.

    —Barb Herreid on November 13, 2015
  • I’m adding frame a quilt to my list for 2016!

    Siobhan Furgurson on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is the quickest step for me. Of course that’s after I’ve picked out my fabric. If I win this beautiful bundle, I would get to the cutting much faster – because this fabric is beautiful. Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Judi Creed on November 13, 2015
  • Even though I stitch my bindings down by hand, that’s still the quickest step. I just framed a quilt for the first time last week and I love how it turned out. I asked lots of questions at a couple framing places and then my husband and I were able to do it ourselves.

    —Lisa Marie on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is my fastest step! Even with handsewing the back of the quilt!
    This is a great idea!

    —susie on November 13, 2015
  • For me it’s the binding! Unless it’s a kit I agonize over fabric choice and placement!

    —Denise Cabral on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest step for me is the binding. I like doing the binding.

    —Marie on November 13, 2015
  • After all the prep work, the actual sewing goes quickly for me!

    —Brenda on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is the easiest part for me.

    —Kathy Brickey on November 13, 2015
  • It’s hard to choose, every quilt and project is different. I do know that I enjoy all the steps to making and completing a quilt. The only step I don’t enjoy and almost never do is marking a quilt. Stippling and all free hand quilting is my favorite thing! Thank you for a chance to win. Linda S Pewaukee WI

    —Linda on November 13, 2015
  • I am a really fast machine piecer but probably binding actually takes the least time. I absolutely love to do the hand sewing binding finish to a quilt!

    —Debbie Miller on November 13, 2015
  • Binding the quilt is the quickest part for me. Maybe that is because I love that step which makes it seem to fly. I even bind quilts for my friends and charity quilts for my quilt guild. I am making a quilt right now to frame. I love this idea.

    —Janet Beyea on November 13, 2015
  • Piecing is the quickest part of a quilt for me. When everything is cut and organized, I can just chain-piece to my heart’s content.

    —Nell on November 13, 2015
  • the quickest step for me is definitely the cutting!

    —Chris Haney on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is the quickest part for me. After that is done, I really get going on the piecing.

    —Marsha Nelson on November 13, 2015
  • I do my binding completely by machine, so that’s the quickest part. Thanks.

    —JoyceLM on November 13, 2015
  • For me, the quickest step is the cutting. Its so exciting to start a new project, although I love every step.

    —Mimi on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing for sure. I hesitate to cut and languish the binding. I have a few pieces that would look great framed and placed in my house. Thank you for the ideas and the giveaway.

    —Janey on November 13, 2015
  • The cutting is my quickest! I love to cut out those gazillion pieces (and even do so for friends!). I hadn’t thought about framing small quilts……this book opens up a lot of opportunities. Thank you!

    —Jane Coleman on November 13, 2015
  • I use my quilting frame and machine to do my quilting so it goes pretty fast.

    —Sylvia on November 13, 2015
  • I would have to say that the binding is the fastest part of a quilt for me especially if I machine bind.

    —Janna on November 13, 2015
  • Me too, cutting is most usually the quickest.

    —Charlotte on November 13, 2015
  • The sewing seems to be the quickest part of the whole quilt for me. Cutting takes time because I’m like the dog in the movie Up. Squirrel! And I’m off the something else. Quilting is something I’m just learning to do so I’m slowwwwwww at it. Binding isn’t bad to do but can take a lot of prep Tim before you sew. Yes again Squirrel!

    —Jennie on November 13, 2015
  • I find the binding the quickest part.

    —Jen B on November 13, 2015
  • The stitching and piecing is the quickest – not in time spent but in the enjoyment of seeing the colors come together to begin the process of a beautiful ending. Colors are what draw me to any design – it can be the best design ever, but if the colors are not right I am somehow unable to enjoy it like I would one of the same design with "perfect" colors……..oh my!!!!!

    Jan J on November 13, 2015
  • the cutting usually is the quickest.

    —Jo Anne on November 13, 2015
  • I can get things cut pretty quickly–it’s the follow-through that hangs me up–lol! This post is so timely–I have a little quilt that will be perfect for framing–I just need to add that extra outer border. Thanks for the great information!

    —Karen in Breezy Point on November 13, 2015
  • I think piecing is the easiest part!

    —Cindy F on November 13, 2015
  • The piecing, of course, that’s the part where we see our vision come together!

    And framing? wow, what a solution for the antique orphan squares I have! I’m thinking a frieze for above my buffet, 6 of the best squares or more, or even using them as cornices for my studio windows…. They are unattributed, just bought because I needed the old fabric to complete my grandmother’s quilt tops, and need to be used and loved! Acid free backer board… good ideas, thank you!

    —Sharon Schipper on November 13, 2015
  • I love the look of blocks in a frame, they add so much to the decor. I have done a couple with practice blocks and they look very nice. Would love to win the fabric and book.Thanks for the chance.

    —Bev on November 13, 2015
  • For me the quickest part is the piecing. I always put off the binding for awhile because I do tack it down by hand. It is not bad once I get started, but I just don’t look forward to it.

    —Linda on November 13, 2015
  • Love the cutting the feel of the challenge to measure accurately,measure twice cut once and wow you have your quilt ready for your frame!!

    lynne mulcahey on November 13, 2015
  • Well, it’s usually the cutting because I like to use pre-cuts whenever I can!

    —lorna holley on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is the quickest part for me. Next would be the quilting, since I machine quilt on an HQ Sweet 16 now.
    My favorite part is putting on the label, because that means it’s done!

    —Sandy B on November 13, 2015
  • I like the sewing – I am anxious to get the cutting over and start to see a project evolve ! Beautiful fabrics and a great book- Martingale is so
    nice with their giveaways ! Thanks!

    —Nancy on November 13, 2015
  • Binding! No decisions to make at that point. Decisions are what takes me forever, especially fabric choices.

    Lisa on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is definitely the quickest part for me, and most relaxing!
    Love the fabrics, and like the idea of framing (rather than putting on a hanging sleeve).
    Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Diantha Howard on November 13, 2015
  • Have to say the quilting… A drive to my longarm quilter with my wonderful husband followed by dinner at our favorite restaurant. 🙂

    —Sharon Koepper on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest quilting step for me is the cutting.

    —Debra Rice on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is by far the fastest part for me; the actual quilting the longest. I have also framed many shall quilts and love the results.

    —Nancy on November 13, 2015
  • The colors in Classic Elegance are rich and lovely. And the projects in A Cut Above would be fun to work on.

    —Linda Haan on November 13, 2015
  • The cutting and the binding – all the stuff in the middle takes forever!

    —Marian on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest step for me is the sewing. I love the new fabric line mostly because of all the red.

    —Patsy Philson on November 13, 2015
  • I just love these framed quilts! I will definitely try this using your tips. I also love these fabrics and thank you for a chance to win them!

    Barbara Barthle on November 13, 2015
  • I’m still new to quilting process so for me the piecing process is quickest. I’m awful at cutting. Hope to get quicker!

    —darlene macdonald on November 13, 2015
  • The quilting as I do it on my BlockRockIT. The fabric is beautiful

    Mayme on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is the easiest and most enjoyable for me. I do it by hand while visiting with friends or watching TV.
    I put one quilt on stretcher bars years ago so it looks like a picture on the wall.
    Great book!

    —Eileen on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing tends to be the quickest step for me, after choosing design, fabric, etc, putting it together is fairly straightforward.

    Wendy on November 13, 2015
  • Since all my projects are chosen because they interest me, all parts of the quilt making process seem to go quickly. But getting my pieces cut makes me feel I am on my way and sewing on the binding seems to take no time time at all. I must be addicted to my craft?

    —Delores Angus on November 13, 2015
  • I love doing the binding, it is a relaxing step for me. I also love the cutting of the fabric because it is the excitement of starting something new. Love the fabrics and the blog. Thanks.

    —Jenelle Boxberger on November 13, 2015
  • I’m currently piecing, quilting, and backing all in one step–that still takes time, but so much less than separateing the steps that it seems fastest! Then putting the blocks together and stripping takes longest.

    betty nelson on November 13, 2015
  • I like the hand sewing of binding. I can do this while watching TV, or listening to music…gives me lots of time to think…

    —Judy on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest part for me is the sewing. Just love the zen of sewing quarter inch seams.
    Thanks for the tutorial. Nice idea.

    —Laura on November 13, 2015
  • Definitely the sewing is quickest for me. My ideal dream would be to have a friend who loves to "cut" fabric and another who really quilts well so we could set up an assembly line system! In my stash, I have several squares that never made it to the finish project, but were too pretty to discard. Framing them would be the perfect way to showcase them and put a punch of color on a wall.

    —debra lee on November 13, 2015
  • Hi, I may llove quilting a lot but am not fast at anything so I do not know what to answer,
    So I will say cutting the ppiecess is the wuiskest for me and thank you for this awesome giveaway

    Nathalie Brault on November 13, 2015
  • The binding absolutely takes the least amount of time, even when I hand stitch it down.

    —Margaret Lawrence on November 13, 2015
  • I think cutting is the easiest, especially for simple quilts. I do have a stash of precuts and a cutting machine.

    —Kathy on November 13, 2015
  • Since I take time gathering fabric, cutting it accurately, sewing and pressing each seam along the way, I have to say binding is the quickest and easiest. I enjoy sitting in my sun room and watching the birds at my feeders while holding my quilt in my lap and binding. It is relaxing, non stressful work and I enjoy doing it while planning my next project.

    —Ann Marie Ott on November 13, 2015
  • Well everything takes forever cuz i am totally new to this and so end up redoing steps, recutting pieces that are wonky, taking out seams, and am pretty sure that nothing would look that good in a frame, at least not close up! Love the beautiful patterns though.

    —Laurie Lit on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is probably the quickest for me, but every process is one I love. I didn’t think of framing quilts, so the mini quilts I make from now on will have a special place on my walls. I would definitely love to win this package!

    —Renaee Juszcak on November 13, 2015
  • Since I am still learning with every step I have noticed that I am getting quicker, more accurate at all aspects of the quilt. I can say at this point binding goes the fastest for me. Fewer pieces I guess.

    —Diane Hearne on November 13, 2015
  • The binding. I love putting on the binding and seeing the project finished, maybe that’s why it goes so quick!

    —Carol on November 13, 2015
  • I actually enjoy binding a quilt, partly because the finished quilt is in sight. But I like the idea of framing a quilt because the glass would protect the quilt and keep it clean.

    Kathy on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing is always the quickest for me–If there were more hours in a day I would get more done–sewing that is–I really like the idea of framing and I must try it. I realy like this site–Keep up the good work

    Bea Donald on November 13, 2015
  • I love the initial cutting of a new quilt. I get all excited to get started sewing and see a beautiful, new, creation!

    Lois Christofferson on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest step for me is the binding. I think because it means that I am almost done and I cannot wait to see the finished quilt. Mind over matter maybe? Thank you so much for the giveaway.

    —Virginia Bronner on November 13, 2015
  • I think the cutting is the quickest step for me. I’m exciting to be starting a new project and motivated to get started before I lose interest or something goes wrong.

    —Suzanne on November 13, 2015
  • Because I don’t cut all the pieces out at one time, I’d have to say binding is quick, just 2 evenings in front of the TV or a DVD. Cutting is a little time here and there, and not quantifiable; piecing is many hours over months, especially when doing applique; quilting is waiting for a longarm quilter to get around to mine; so binding it is.

    —Judy Garling on November 13, 2015
  • Of those choices the sewing is the quickest. But planning the next quilt is really the fastest. I have so many quilts planned. I wish I could sew and finish them as fast as I think of what to make next.

    —Christine Murray on November 13, 2015
  • Binding seems to go quickly with sewing the front down by machine and hand stitching to the back. As others have noted here, it can be very relaxing and rewarding since I know I am in "the home stretch" and on my way to completing another project!

    —Deborah on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is quickest since I really want to get it done by that point. Plus I find hand sewing the binding sort of therapetic somehow. Selecting fabrics is by far the most time consuming!

    —Lynne on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is easiest and quickest for me. Maybe it just seems that way because I do it while watching TV! LOL

    —Delta Gal on November 13, 2015
  • I enjoy the cutting and binding the most in the process. The cutting is a somewhat mindless process but the binding is definately the job I do in front of the television or chat with friends. I use to not like binding but now is see the VALUE of it!

    —Arliene Zeigler on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is the quickest step for me. No matter how busy I’ve been, the few minutes watching the news allows me time to sew and enjoy the feel and the process. And it gets done quickly!

    —Pat on November 13, 2015
  • It really depends on the quilt! Sometimes it’s cutting, occasionally it’s sewing, often it’s binding. Quilting is the step I usually procrastinate the longest over, but often once I get started, it can go quickly too. Thanks!

    —Diane on November 13, 2015
  • Lots of great ideas even in these comments! Great post, too! The quickest lately is the binding because I have begun to do it all on machine. I was always leery of that, but with practice I have it down and usually get it all done in about two hours. Holds up well, too. Thanks for the chance at the gorgeous fabric!

    —Karen Dicken on November 13, 2015
  • I was thrilled to see these quilts framed! What an excellent gift! I am completely in love with these colors especially the stars. Any of them would be a great addition to my kitchen or piano room. Thanks for So many hours of fun!! I love quilting,and the stories!!
    With a Quilter’s heart,
    Diane Dikeman

    —Diane Dikeman on November 13, 2015
  • The *quickest* part for me is the cutting, and I’m glad to get it out of the way so I can relax and do the hand work! and then repeat

    —Carole-Jayne on November 13, 2015
  • The piecing is what I like best.

    —Sonia on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is the quickest for me, slowest the quilting. I get intimidated by the thought of quilting it all together and trying to pick out what I want in each section or an all over design… I’ve definitely decided to stick to smaller quilts for now as I never finish an entire quilt before starting another one or another project. The idea of framing a smaller quilt top is so appealing!

    —Jessica F on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting seems to go quicker for me. I guess I am excited to start a new project!

    —Jean on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is actually the quickest part of the quilt for me and quilting is the longest.

    —Sheila on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is usually goes the quickest for me.

    —Pat N on November 13, 2015
  • I really like the idea of framing small quilts. What a lovely gift to give or receive. I think sewing goes the quickest for me. Don’t have an Accu Cutter so the cutting can be time consuming….especially when I use scraps. Thank you for the opportunity to win.

    —Rochelle on November 13, 2015
  • I would have to say the binding is the quickest step for me. Love the idea of framing quilts!

    —Susan on November 13, 2015
  • I like the look of the framed squares and quilts. Thanks for the tip on the extra fabric to allow the framing to be easier to get squared. Love the fabrics and the designs. Fingers crossed.

    —Sue Crume on November 13, 2015
  • I think it depends on my mood! Sometimes I feel like cutting. Other times my sewing machine calls me to put the pieces together and work out the ‘puzzle’ of the quilt top and to see the play of pattern and fabric. Other times it is the binding that speaks to me–you can rest–it is done! There is something peaceful about finishing the binding by hand to say "All is well–it is done!"

    —Susan Whitfield on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is the quickest for me, although through each process, I stop every few minutes to admire the fabric and handiwork as I go.

    —Gloria Goins on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting! I use my fabric cutter sometimes, and my rotary cutter.

    Denise L. on November 13, 2015
  • Binding has become the fastest for me. I have been machine binding once I learned the process. It is quicker and seems to me to be sturdier for heavy use.

    —Danyse on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is the quickest for me. By the way, the "Classic Elegance" fabric is beautiful!

    —Teresa on November 13, 2015
  • Quilting. Cutting is the hardest for me but with quilting I get in a meditative state and just let it flow.

    —Jamie on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing probably is the quickest because I enjoy that the most. I would love to win this package. Thanks for the opportunity.

    —Sharon on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is the quickest, because I don’t hand sew it. 2″, iron in half, 1/4″ seam along the back, pull binding forward, blanket stitch along the front edge, and it matches at almost every point.

    —JaniceCarole Allen on November 13, 2015
  • Hi,the binding goes fastest for me,as I love doing it by hand.Plus it is the final step for the project! Love Gerri’s design+color choices! Thanks to You+Gerri for a great Giveaway!

    —LINDA on November 13, 2015
  • Quickest for me is the binding. I sew it on, so it is pretty quick.

    —Martha Morgan on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest for me is the binding,.

    —Martha Morgan on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest step for me is the binding. I machine sew my binding on and hand-stitch it down on the back.

    Susan on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing is the quickest for me. Cutting is my nemesis. Would love to win – thanks for the chance.

    —Kathy on November 13, 2015
  • Would love for the quilting part to be quick, but it’s all the other things. I’m a slow sew-er because I enjoy the process so much. It will always be too quick.

    —Patricia Hersl on November 13, 2015
  • I love the planning and cutting. This is the time when all things are possible.

    I am working on 2 small quilts that I plan to frame. Love all the excellent hints.

    —Sheila Bird on November 13, 2015
  • I would love to win this package. Red is one of my favorite colors and I have been a Gerri Robinson follower for a long time.

    —Christa Mac Lean on November 13, 2015
  • sewing is the quickest for me. I also enjoy cutting.

    —rachel on November 13, 2015
  • The fastest part for me is actually the binding! When I get to that point in the process, I know that the current project will soon be completed; and I am motivated to keep at it until I "cross the finish line"! I attach the first side of my binding by machine; and then follow up with hand stitching to finish the other side. When I get to this phase, I can leave my sewing room and join my husband in the family room where I do the hand sewing and enjoy his company at the same time. I am very interested in the possibility of framing some of my quilts…my husband has framed a number of items for our home and he will enjoy applying his meticulous workmanship skills to framing some of my quilting projects. We would both be excited to win this prize.

    —Linda Cassell on November 13, 2015
  • The binding, definitely the binding is the quickest part for me. One of the reasons it is because by that point I’m so excited to have the quilt completed that I just fly through that step!

    —Carol Gearey on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest part for me is the piecing. I usually cut my fabrics first prior to taking everything to construct the quilt to the many retreats that I attend.

    —Doreen Frederick on November 13, 2015
  • Binding goes the quickest for me. I’m a scrap quilter, so cutting takes forever!
    Thanks for the lovely giveaway!

    gayle on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is the quickest for me and it’s also my favorite part of the quilt-making process.

    —Susan on November 13, 2015
  • The cutting is my slowest. Binding is the fastest. I’m so anxious to have it finished that I really go to town and work hard. Plus I enjoy the hand finish of it.

    —Susan on November 13, 2015
  • None of the steps are fast because I really need to pay attention and take my time to get it right the first time.

    —Marsha on November 13, 2015
  • Personally it is binding… I don’t know if it is because at this point I have done so many and that step is the same no matter the quilt or if it is because that is the "finish"… binding a quilt totally relaxes me as well! Enjoy the finish!

    —Tonie Peterson on November 13, 2015
  • Absolutely love that idea of framing a quilt! I needed inspiration for a little nook in my home that needs a little something.
    My easiest/fastest part of quilting is the binding. I use my machine with invisible thread(if I don’t have matching thread) to put on the binding.
    My favorite part of quilting is handing the quilt over to the person I made it for,and watching their expression.

    —Denise on November 13, 2015
  • The binding takes the least time as I use double fold and serge it in place. This means that I get an exact measurement when turning the binding over. I always sew to the back and turn to the front to machine stitch in place. Easy to get the back of the quilt binding seen as sewn in the ditch! Pretty hectic Linus prefers double bindings and machine sewn as these are stronger for the children and so give more life.

    —Sandra Miller on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest step is putting on the binding.

    —Inez Glover on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is the quickest step for me–just deciding what fabrics to use takes more time!

    —CJ Hines on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is probably the quickest — I use "Suzie’s magic binding" technique. Love the quilts.

    —MaryBeth on November 13, 2015
  • Well, now the wheels are turning! I found a great frame made from old barn wood at a craft fair a few years ago, and haven’t found anything I wanted to use it for until now – framing a quilt is the perfect use for it!

    I think the binding is the quickest stage in crafting a quilt, and I really enjoy hand sewing, so I don’t procrastinate on this step. Now if I could just get myself to quilt all the sandwiched tops I have stacked up waiting…

    —Beth on November 13, 2015
  • I’m pretty quick with my piecing. Especially with precuts. Then unfortunately my quilts just seem to sit there …and rest…forever!
    This framing would be my new best friend. Great idea.

    —Claire on November 13, 2015
  • I Like this idea to frame a quilt or block. I have blocks of my
    Grandmothers I want to do this with.
    The sewing is quickest

    —pauline on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest step for me is usually the sewing!

    —Patti on November 13, 2015
  • For me, it’s got to be the sewing. 🙂 I framed my first wool wall hanging just last week and the idea of framing a small quilt would be so fun! Just need to find the perfect pattern to get started. Thanks for the inspiration!

    —Lisa D on November 13, 2015
  • Since I am still new to quilting, cutting is the quickest for me. Everything else takes much longer because I am checking, double checking and checking again to make sure I got it right! LOL

    —Liza Gay on November 13, 2015
  • Definitely, the sewing! Always takes me longer to plan and cut, but sewing is a snap! Love the framed quilts, great idea! thank you!

    —jean on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest step is the step I like least..binding.

    —Nikki Mahaffey on November 13, 2015
  • I think piecing is the fastest for me,
    probably because that is the part I love.

    —Laura on November 13, 2015
  • I think sewing is the quickest step for me. After the cutting is all done, the sewing usually goes like a breeze. The quilting and binding slow me down a bit. I like the idea of framing a quilt.

    —Leslie on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest step is the binding. However, it’s also the one step that usually takes the longest because I’m a great procrastinator. Putting the binding on means that I’m actually finishing the quilt and I do SO enjoy the process of making a quilt! I just never want it to actually end!!

    —Marilyn Rose on November 13, 2015
  • The quilting – I usually have the quilting done by a wonderful local longarm quilter who does wonderful work and has a fast turn around time!

    —Linda Fleming on November 13, 2015
  • Lovely quilts! My favorite part is the binding, and it is also the quickest because I enjoy actually finishing the project!

    —Michele on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is by far the quickest step for me in constructing a quilt.

    —B J Kinney on November 13, 2015
  • I love your website! Whaat a great idea to frame small wallhangings. I probably would not have thought of this!

    I am going to try it! Thank you for the tip!

    Linda

    —Linda Hunt on November 13, 2015
  • Definitely the sewing. I’m not too fond of cutting and find I need to really take my time to do it right.

    I love these framed quilts — would love to win this!

    —Diana S. on November 13, 2015
  • Definitely cutting is the easiest for me and next would be the binding, I attach it on by machine but then finish by hand

    —Sue R on November 13, 2015
  • My most enjoyable part of a new quilt is the cutting!! Rotary cutting is the best! Worst is TEMPLATES!

    —Dorothy Holt on November 13, 2015
  • I’m guessing the binding is the quickest and easiest but love the idea of framing. Will have to try this soon. Love the chance to win such an amazing bundle.

    —Audrey on November 13, 2015
  • I find the binding to be the quickest part…but still not my favorite!

    Linda Pawlak on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing is usually the fastest for me. It can depend on the project.

    —Donna on November 13, 2015
  • For me, the quickest is the binding – it is nice to reach that point in the quilting process (my favourite is the machine quilting though). I love the idea of framed quilts – all the examples are beautiful. Thanks!

    —Joanne on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is never a problem, although applying the binding is quick and hand finishing not so much.

    —Diane on November 13, 2015
  • For me, I think the quickest part of making a quilt is the cutting. Of course, I am not taking into account the deciding of color and placement. I really like the idea of framing — will be giving it a try.

    —Carol Sc on November 13, 2015
  • I’m a pretty fast sewer. I get everything lined up and ready to go. I chain piece as much as I can. I sew the finished blocks quickly, row by row.
    I wait to cut my borders until the main quilt is together to get the measurement I ended up with and then quickly get those attached.

    —Jami price on November 13, 2015
  • I love the putting the binding on because I only that I’m almost finished.

    —Robeeta on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is the quickest for me.

    —Nancy Magee on November 13, 2015
  • The binding – I can’t wait to get it over!

    —NancyB from Many LA on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest step when making a quilt, I guess I never thought of it, but I do know the step that takes me the most time is doing the binding by hand. Hand stitching is not my favorite!

    —Yvonne J on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is the quickest part for me. Thanks for the chance to win this wonderful fabric.

    —Karen Watkins on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is actually my quickest step…and I don’t mind doing it – I am covered up and enjoying the quilt while hand stiching the binding before having to give it away. I did frame one wool wall hanging I made, and love the way it turned out. Would love to see the ideas in this book!

    —Patty on November 13, 2015
  • The sewing is the easiest/fastest part for me. I like precuts because they cut down on the cutting for me! This would be a fun give away to win!

    —Suzanne on November 13, 2015
  • I love every part except I am not good at the machine quilting so I send mine out. Cutting of a complete project insures that I get to it and get it done, if only for a few minutes at a time. So I would say Cutting for me.

    —Loretta on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing is the quickest for me. Just deciding what to make is the longest part….so many wonderful fabric and patterns out there!

    —Lennea Heymer on November 13, 2015
  • since I enjoy hand sewing, the binding is the quickest for me. I love having the quilt across my lap and the feeling of nearing the finish.

    —Katherine on November 13, 2015
  • Binding takes me the least amount of time. I machine sew one side and sew the other side by hand, enjoyable for me and also rewarding, knowing my quilt is almost finished, minus the label!

    —Kathleen Young on November 13, 2015
  • I LOVE CUTTING ,even though it takes time it’s fulfilling to know I did it from scratch . THANK YOU.

    —Connie on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting once I get over the angst of cutting into beautiful fabric. What a great idea to frame quilts!

    —Glenda Britten on November 13, 2015
  • Hard question! I think the sewing may be the fastest for me. Cutting seems to take forever sometimes! BTW: I adore this fabric!!

    —Susan White on November 13, 2015
  • That is a difficult question to answer really. I love all aspects of the process from choosing the fabric to binding it into a lovely heritage piece. Choosing the pattern takes the longest cause there are just so many I want to do. LOL I would have to say binding is the quickest unless I’m doing prairie points or scallops. But generally even then the binding is definitely the quickest for me and one of the most rewarding because it’s the final stitches!
    I absolutely love these fabrics and can’t wait to begin my next quilt with them. Gorgeous!
    Thanks, Carla

    Carla on November 13, 2015
  • It depends on the size of the project. Sewing takes the longest if I’m using precuts.

    —Lindi Goins on November 13, 2015
  • SEWING!

    —Connie on November 13, 2015
  • Each step takes me forever. Binding is probably the quickest.

    —Georgina on November 13, 2015
  • Now that I have an Accuquilt GO the cutting is the easiest. My passion is hand quilting. It gives me peace and is good for my mental health.

    —gen on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is the fastest process for me. I sew one side by machine and the other side I hand sew, which is enjoyable to me, and rewarding since the quilt is almost finished, minus the label!

    —Kathleen Young on November 13, 2015
  • With the cutting mat, grid rulers and rotary cutters, cutting is the quickest for me. I don’t think I would be sewing quilts if I had to cut pieces by scissors.

    —Norine Oyasato on November 13, 2015
  • quickest step is probably cutting since i love using scraps.

    —jenny on November 13, 2015
  • I believe the sewing goes the fastest for me, but I am hoping to soon make it the cutting with my new cutter I just bought. The quilting also goes quite quick if I just do a meandering or something simple like that, but if I do custom it takes me a while.

    Thanks,

    Pat bley on November 13, 2015
  • For me, each quilt is a little different. Sometimes the cutting takes more time, sometimes the quilting or maybe there are issues with the stitching part. I don’t really have trouble binding – but sometimes making sure the quilt is properly prepared for the binding is an issue.

    —Shar on November 13, 2015
  • I’d have to pick binding as my quickest. I’ve been doing the binding with faux piping or a mini flange and it is all done by machine.

    —Karen A on November 13, 2015
  • I’m getting much better at binding and it goes fairly quickly now. I also love the machine-quilting and have fun with lots of new designs.

    —Gail D. on November 13, 2015
  • Depends on the quilt. If the pattern is complex, sewing can be slow. The binding is probably most often the quickest. I prep it before the quilting is done so it is ready to put on the quilt immediately–no procrastination!

    —Penny on November 13, 2015
  • That is a tough question for me, because I tend to enjoy the whole process. The only tool that I intend to add to my quilting process is a fabric cutting machine to make the cutting go a little bit faster. Everything else seems to fall into place down to the binding and that I save for road trips.

    —Sandy H on November 13, 2015
  • I like the sewing part the best of any project. It is relaxing for me.

    —Linda Taylor on November 13, 2015
  • The sewing goes the fastest for me. The picking of the fabric takes the most time, especially because it takes over an hour just to get to a store!!

    elr on November 13, 2015
  • For me I think the cutting is the quickest part of the process. Picking the fabrics and quilt pattern takes the longest because I love to fondle and sort through all the different fabrics that are available. But once I start cutting I am keen on getting it all put together. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Lynn on November 13, 2015
  • the binding is the quickest for me – it’s usually the final step to a finished quilt and so am spurred on to the finish

    —Karon on November 13, 2015
  • The cutting is easiest for me to get done. Three small kids make it hard to keep my sewing machine accessible.

    —Rebecca B on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing because I enjoy seeing the project come together, It might really be the longest but time flys as the excitement builds seeing the colors and pieces join. I love the colors in this give away chance!

    —Lou Ann Peeler on November 13, 2015
  • The sewing seems to be the fastest–and the most fun!

    Susan on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is the quickest part of the quilt for me and one of my favorite parts. I also love the piecing, seeing the pattern emerge. Of course all of the process is addicting, love making quilts.

    Gladys Bacon-Rust on November 13, 2015
  • Binding seems to be the fastest for me, perhaps because the finished product is in sight and I am anxious to start a new quilt (or two!). Love the gorgeous fabrics.

    —Kathy L on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is usually the fastest part of my quilt projects.

    Carol Bledsoe on November 13, 2015
  • It is a fun idea for an alternative for displaying piecing and quilting. And nice way to protect your work, especially if you are using vintage fabrics, or spend a lot of time on more intricate piecing.

    —Kelley W. on November 13, 2015
  • For my the fastest is the binding ~ unless that quilt is huge.

    —Stephanie Hanson on November 13, 2015
  • I love doing the binding, as this is the last step of the quilt, except for the label.

    This brings the satisfaction of seeing the finished product.
    Marion

    —Marion on November 13, 2015
  • It really depends on what kind of quilt I am making but I think binding is the fastest for me. I attach my binding to one side with my machine and use The Binding Tool to make the perfect cut and hand sew it down. I love to do it that way, it goes quickly and hand sewing it is therapeutic.

    —Annette Jones on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is the fastest part of the process for me. Cutting takes an hour or so, depending on size of quilt. All the rest take days, weeks, sometimes years!

    —Janet T on November 13, 2015
  • i love sewing ! thanks for the give away

    jubama on November 13, 2015
  • I’d say the sewing is my quickest step!

    —jane d on November 13, 2015
  • The cutting is quickest for me. I have to do that all in the same chunk of time. The rest…sewing, quilting and binding usually happens in many segments of time. Great idea and thanks for the opportunity!

    —Ruth on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing (piecing) is the quickest step in the quilting process for me.

    I LOVE Gerri Robinson’s patterns and her new fabric line is very pretty. I’d be thrilled to win her prize package!!! Thanks for the opportunity.

    —Kathleen Dalecio on November 13, 2015
  • How beautiful the fabric is and I just bought her book "A Cut Above" a month ago and would love to put my hands on that fabric!!!!

    Beth paulson on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest for me is definitely the binding! Quilting takes the longest to do as I want it done perfectly…lol. Choosing and cutting the fabrics is the most fun though. 🙂

    —Susan S. on November 13, 2015
  • the quickest part of making a quilt is the sewing, i try to chain piece as much as possible, first i put my computer on and put on a movie or something to watch whilst i pin my pieces together, then i chain piece with my machine on maximum speed. it is fast and i can sew up a quilt in no time at all.

    arlene osborn on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest part for me is sewing and my favourite part is hand quilting. I find it very relaxing.

    —Susan Elliott on November 13, 2015
  • The binding goes the quickest, I think. But the part I love is the planning (which I often do in bed as I lay before sleep or upon wakening) and I also love selecting the colors. Playing with fabric is heaven! Thanks for the great offer!

    —Corky on November 13, 2015
  • Probably assembling the quilt is the fastest step for me. I take forever to choose how to quilt it and then another forever to bind it!

    —Allison Evrard on November 13, 2015
  • Binding for sure. I constantly make design decisions all the way through. Auditioning possible changes especially to the border. The binding is pretty quick for me – and I am also excited to see it finished!

    —Diane McLauchlan on November 13, 2015
  • I’m scared when I cut the binding but I am learning every day more. Love your fabrics.

    —Barbara on November 13, 2015
  • I find hand binding such a peaceful way to finish a project.

    —Cathy on November 13, 2015
  • Because I sew and quilt by hand, the cutting is the quickiest for me.
    Thanks a lot for this giveaway!

    —Ghislaine on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is fastest because I can relax and relish in the fact that I finally finished a project! It’s a time to think back and enjoy. I have been a fan of Gerri for years and would LOVE to have some of her fabric to make another of her gorgeous quilts!!

    —Deborah Fields on November 13, 2015
  • I’m still a Beginner, so I would say the Sewing phase, because my two pieces are pinned together with a penciled line at a quarter-inch before I even walk over to the sewing machine. LOL.

    —Sandra on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is the quickest part for me! I think it is because that seems to be one of my favorite parts…it signals that the quilt is almost finished and hand sewing the binding is so relaxing for me!

    —Della Myers on November 13, 2015
  • I myself like all aspects from drawing a pattern to picking out all colors and challenging myself to try some thing different. I am cutting back on the large quilts and the frame idea is right up my alley. I am in my mid eighty’s and still learning all I can. Keeps my mind sharp and the hands busy.

    —Hazel Kuney on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is the quickest part.

    —Katharine Wolfe on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is definitely the fastest process thanks to rotary cutters. I absolutely love rotary cutters! And, thank you for this opportunity.

    —Sheila on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is usually the quickest (and most relaxing) quilting step for me. Thanks!

    —Delaine on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is the quickest

    —Katharine Wolfe on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is the quickest of the four steps for me. Reminds me of the saying that "the road to a friend’s house is never long" — the joyous "end" of making the quilt is in sight and you can feel the momentum of the celebration beginning to build. The binding is the quickest, but the most fun is choosing the pattern, the colors, and cutting the fabrics.

    Bonnie Sabel Welte on November 13, 2015
  • Probably the binding is the quickest even though I do it by hand. I know the end is near and I can do it while watching TV.

    —Rita S on November 13, 2015
  • The bindings are quickest go me. Most are done by machine….now with framing –they will be even faster….cuz I don’t even have to do them

    —Karen Keeler on November 13, 2015
  • I have two ‘quickest’assembling phases, cutting and machine sewing. Love both of them.

    —Robbie on November 13, 2015
  • Since I am a beginner, and some what of a perfectionist, each step takes awhile for me. I think the binding process is probably the quickest for me because I love hand sewing. I can definitely tell you that picking out fabric takes the longest.

    —Angelia L. on November 13, 2015
  • Unlike some folks, the binding is my favorite part and goes the quickest. When I have reached this point I know the quilt will be finished and I enjoy the hand stitching while thinking of the next project!

    —Linda Becker on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting usually goes the fastest, but sewing is my favorite step.

    —Keri Lyn on November 13, 2015
  • I still consider myself a newbie and I’ve learned that precise cutting makes all the difference, so I take a lot of time on that. I’d say sewing is the quickest step for me.

    Jinger on November 13, 2015
  • Well, cutting always seems the most time consuming to me. I love the sewing and really enjoy the binding which I almost always do by hand. This red fabric is gorgeous! Thank you for the opportunity to win it.

    —Janet Spaid on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is an easy and relaxing process for me!

    —Cassy L. on November 13, 2015
  • I have so much trouble with binding, I usually avoid it all together! I like the sewing best.

    —Leslie on November 13, 2015
  • I really am not the Gerri who is hosting this giveaway but I do find the sewing the fastest part of quilting.

    Ha ha, good one Gerri! 🙂 –Jenny

    —gerri on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is the quickest. Not only does it take the least amount of sewing, but I work faster because it’s almost done!

    —Ember on November 13, 2015
  • I love each step of the process of making a quilt, but my favorite is the sewing. Lovely "elegance" and quilt. Thanks!

    —Caren on November 13, 2015
  • Chain stitching, when it’s a possibility, is fastest for me. I’m not crazy about hand sewing the binding, but it does go pretty fast.

    —Nancy in NC on November 13, 2015
  • To me binding is a chore. I can’t say that I enjoy quilting. I probably just need more practice. Most of my stuff is knotted. Once the cutting is completed, it seems that I can sew up a storm. Maybe that is because I’ve been using a machine for fifty years. I even spent a summer in the factory on a commercial machine. Talk about speed! I’d rather quilt that put in 13 dozen zippers. I did that my last day in that summer job! Aren’t the red fabrics beautiful!!!

    —Judy on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is the fastest for me especially if you use a die cutting machine. I love the red fabrics. Our guild is doing a red and white challenge and I’m constantly buying red fabrics for variety for my quilt.

    —Elizabeth Teerlink on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest for me is the quilting – I own a shortarm quilting machine and do my own quilting. Thank you for the opportunity to win such great prizes! 🙂

    —Sheila Fernkopf on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is the quickest and the most relaxing part of the quilting process for me.

    —Sari S. on November 13, 2015
  • Binding, and sometimes machine quilting.

    —Joye on November 13, 2015
  • The sewing! My Elna makes quick work of the piecing.

    —Gail Messmer on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is the fastest for me after I’ve quilted my quilts I no I’m almost finished.I place my binding on the back and fold it over to the front to machine sew down.I think it is easy to do and no hand sewing.

    —Connie Hopper on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest step for me is the binding. It is also the best part ’cause then I get to start another.

    —Janice Mc Laren on November 13, 2015
  • It has to be the binding. By that time, all the steps are complete and I can do the binding process without any extra decision-making. After attaching the bias strip by machine, what’s better than sitting quietly with needle and thread, relishing the beauty of the finished piece with every stitch?!

    —Judy Wilhelm on November 13, 2015
  • The binding.It’s a wonderful feeling sitting down in one place and just "get er done".

    —Kathleen Moran on November 13, 2015
  • I’d have to say that binding takes me the least amount of time. It’s the one step I don’t have to recheck or plan all steps before doing. Pretty rote for me at this point unless I’m doing something like faux pipped binding.
    Also want to add that that I love framing small quilts. Really gives them that "Hello! Look at me!" impact. Thanks for the opportunity to win this gorgeous fabric!!

    —Wendy Allen on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is the quickest for me, as I find it calming, & sit with hubby, as he watches tv.

    —sandi on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing

    —Teresa Knittingdancer on November 13, 2015
  • I think the sewing because I enjoy that part the most! Thanks

    —Peggy Stoops on November 13, 2015
  • It all depends on the project. I have a long arm machine, so often the quilting can be the quickest step depending on how I decide to quilt it.

    —Dar on November 13, 2015
  • I enjoy figuring out how to use the bits and pieces that I have, cutting out fabric, and sewing. Actually I enjoy every aspect of quilting.

    —Wilhelmina Triveri on November 13, 2015
  • The binding.

    —Nancy in Montana on November 13, 2015
  • Hand sewing the binding to the back of the quilt after machine sewing the binding on the front of the quilt goes quickly for me. However, it is the planning, the color selection and the cutting of the pieces which is the most satisfying. I am also an admirer of Gerri Robinson’s quilt designs. Would love to win her new book and the fabrics!

    —Katherine K Morvay on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is the quickest, although it really depends on the quilt pattern.

    —Virginia in AK on November 13, 2015
  • I like using dies to do the cutting of my fabrics because it is so much faster and more accurate. Granted I feel every new beginner should learn to cut out and square up fabric to have the foundation down. By the time I am done putting a quilt together I am ready to start the next quilt.

    —Linda James on November 13, 2015
  • i love the piecing part so sewing is quickest for me. Cutting is boring I think, I have to do the cutting in chunks so I don’t get tired of it and quit before I even have the quilt started. But seeing the pieces come together to make patterns is fun…..

    —Lori on November 13, 2015
  • I just LOVE this fabric line .I love sewing the fabrics & creating some thing unique.

    —Charmaine on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is the quickest step as I’m always looking forward to the next project, plus love the hand sewing.
    Ps, I’ve always wanted to do a red and white quilt & that collection is drool worthy. Bhopal I’m the winner!

    —Marg on November 13, 2015
  • The fastest step for me is cutting, because I use an accuquilt cutting system. The slowest is binding because I like to finish by hand.

    —Daenette More on November 13, 2015
  • What a funny question! As a new quilter, I don’t find any step "quick" but I guess for me, so far, it’s the cutting.

    —Linda M on November 13, 2015
  • The stitching probably goes the fastest for me-I’m a slow cutter! and since I’m a beginner I’m not really that fast on any of the steps of the process.

    —amy on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing feels like the quickest, maybe because I enjoy it the most. Cutting is kind of torturous for me because of the long standing time. It’s a toss up, I guess.
    Love the framed quilts and the fabric giveaway. Thanks for the opportunity.

    —Sue on November 13, 2015
  • I’m not very quick at any of the steps, but I enjoy the cutting and piecing more than quilting or binding.
    I would love to win these beautiful fabrics and Gerri’s book.

    —Julie in GA on November 13, 2015
  • I like to get the cutting all done at once so I can then begin the challenge of piecing. Binding takes some time because I only hand sew the binding versus machine.

    —Brenda on November 13, 2015
  • I LOVE piecing – seeing the blocks and design come together is my favorite part of quilting, and the quickest part for me. I am a true topper! Fortunately I have several friends who are great machine quilters.
    Love Gerri’s fabrics and her designs are always superb. Thanks for the chance to win this great giveaway!

    —Aggiequilter on November 13, 2015
  • I like the sewing part best–probably because I can see the quilt coming together.

    —Diana O on November 13, 2015
  • i just love when everything is cut, and I get to start zipping along sewing it together! It’s so fun watching things take shape!

    —Carol Secord on November 13, 2015
  • For me it is the binding! I am so happy that my quilt is finishe, that it just goes so fast!LOL!

    Martina on November 13, 2015
  • The cutting usually goes pretty fast once I make up my mind on fabric choice. Maybe that’s because it’s my favorite step. I like the math (call me crazy).

    —Mary Lindberg on November 13, 2015
  • I enjoy sewing and usually make smaller projects. My favorite part is planning and picking the colors. The easiest for me is quilting because if the project is larger than a table runner my daughter quilts it for me.

    —Gay Wescott on November 13, 2015
  • Quilting on my long arm is the quickest. Designing the quilt and playing with the fabric gives me the most pleasure.

    Kathy on November 13, 2015
  • The actual piecing seems to be the easiest for me.

    —peg on November 13, 2015
  • Binding, I guess. Really, nothing is fast for me and that’s how I like it. It’s the whole process that makes me happy.

    —Ginna on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing is the quickest step for me. Picking the next project seems to be the hardest for me.

    —Judy Prescott on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting, of course! While I’cutting I am envisioning the sewing, binding, quilting, and gift wrapping the quilt.

    Kim Lawler on November 13, 2015
  • I love piecing and binding! I am pretty speedy on the binding part…quilting takes the longest!

    —Allison CB on November 13, 2015
  • The piecing for me is the most fun so it seems to be the quickest. Love this fabric line!

    —theresa sheldon on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting with a rotary cutter would be the quickest for me. I hand quilt so that takes the longest.

    —Sharon B on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is the fastest.

    —Quilting Tangent on November 13, 2015
  • Binding always goes the fastest for me, it’s the perfect activity while listening to tv. It never takes me long to finish and once the binding is done I can move on to the next project without feeling guilty.

    —Jean HS on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing seems quickest, but probably because I love watching the effect of the juxtaposition of the different fabrics appear as they are sewn together.

    —Nancy on November 13, 2015
  • The binding. When I start to make a quilt from a pattern, it never ends up as I had originally planned. Whether it’s adding a decorative sashing, changing the layout or adding extra blocks of a different design, the end result is always different. So by far, the binding is the fastest.

    —Audrey on November 13, 2015
  • The binding, because I machine-sew them. The fabric line is great!

    Nann on November 13, 2015
  • While it is the step I like the least, binding is the quickest step for me.

    —K Yee on November 13, 2015
  • I love the idea of framing quilt blocks! Can not wait to try it. I would love to receive a copy of the book as well as the fabric.

    —Beth on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing goes pretty quickly for me. I hand quilt and binding is not my favorite job, so I tend to put it off.

    —Sally on November 13, 2015
  • Quilting an all over pattern is the quickest step of quilt making for me. Although a quilt made up of easy blocks goes fairly fast as well.

    —cindy on November 13, 2015
  • The binding, by far! Everything else is very time consuming, but Love the process in all.

    —Carol Hinkle on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is the quickest for me!

    —Becky on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is my favorite part of quilting. It gives me a sense of peace as well was accomplishment. All handwork pleases me – so I am a hand quilter!

    —Julie in Tucson, AZ on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is the quickest step for me. Thanks for the framing info. This I will do.

    —Jacqueline on November 13, 2015
  • All phases of quilting are time consuming, but I love the sewing time the most and cutting the least. Thanks for the idea of framing quilts.

    —Dolores on November 13, 2015
  • Love to sit and Bind It is a very relaxing project to do to wind down after a Long Hard Day of work

    —Deb on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing/piecing is usually the quickest for me. Thanks for the giveaway.

    —carol n on November 13, 2015
  • My quickest step is cutting. It goes really fast with practice!

    —Meri Miller on November 13, 2015
  • For me, sewing is the quickest part of making a quilt. Of course, machine piecing! Not by hand! lol. Sewing is my MOST favorite thing to do. It’s fun and never seems like work. So, even if it’s taking me long to complete, it seems faster than the other steps.

    —Barbara Harvey on November 13, 2015
  • I think cutting is the quickest step for me, probably because I have a die cutting machine.

    —Sherril M. on November 13, 2015
  • I really enjoy hand sewing the binding so that is probably the fastest. I put in a movie and sew while I watch and listen.

    DeeAnn Fuchs on November 13, 2015
  • The binding. I love to finally get the project FINISHED.

    Christine Byrne on November 13, 2015
  • I am abysmally slow at all steps, but binding is probably the quickest. It’s the only thing I can do day after day at specific times. Gerri’s fabric is lovely.

    —Sandy W. on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is quickest, no decisions to make, and when it’s done, I’m totally done!

    —Jane on November 13, 2015
  • rotary cutting is the fastest for me!

    —Rynetta on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing my tops is the fastest part for me!

    —Mary on November 13, 2015
  • The piecing is the faster part for me. I like to sew the binding on too…I do the back side by hand so it is relaxing.

    —Kathie Feller on November 13, 2015
  • For me it’s the binding. But framing the quilt, especially a small one, makes it more likely that my gift will be preserved…and displayed. I like this.

    —Chris on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing is the quickest for me! I love to see how the colors play together but borders are not my favorite. I wish I could master binding by machine but so far, I prefer hand binding.

    —Gloria on November 13, 2015
  • I am a pretty slow at the process of making a quilt. I guess sewing the quilt might be the fastest part. My slowest part would be putting the binding on. I do not really like putting binding on a quilt. I love the idea of not having to bind the quilt and putting it into a frame. GREAT IDEA. Thanks.

    —Cindy Schultz on November 13, 2015
  • I am still a beginner at quilting, and am still on smaller projects, but I would guess the sewing is the quickest. Have a great day.

    —Dawn Jones on November 13, 2015
  • My Favorite part of quilting is the fabric choice and piecing. I do enjoy the whole process though.

    Pam on November 13, 2015
  • I think the binding is the fastest part for me.

    —Roberta Adams on November 13, 2015
  • I think the sewing is the quickest for me. Binding feels like it takes forever because I am so close to being finished and I can’t wait!

    —Ann Denny on November 13, 2015
  • It really depends on the size of the quilt but I’d say sewing.
    Dmac5958ataoldotcom

    —Doris McCarty on November 13, 2015
  • I think binding is my fastest and favorite because I can sit and do it while visiting with my family in the evening.

    —Ellen Camden on November 13, 2015
  • I like piecing the best, but I put my binding on entirely by machine, so that’s definitely the quickest part of the process for me.

    —Jill Ellis on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing is the fastest for me. . . and I agree – binding is also not my favorite so I tend to leave it and would rather start someone else

    —Nina on November 13, 2015
  • Oops I meant start ‘something’ else. lol

    —Nina on November 13, 2015
  • The binding for sure, plus I know when I’m doing the binding I’m almost finished and it won’t be long until it’s washed and has that lovely crinkled look.

    —Linda Ronne on November 13, 2015
  • If I get all the pieces cut beforehand, then sewing is the quickest. Maybe piecing is quick, because I love to piece and have it all match up.

    —Karen B. on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting. Because I’m ready to get started on the quilting and this is the necessary delay!

    —Lena on November 13, 2015
  • The binding goes quickly for me. I really enjoy the handwork.

    —Carol on November 13, 2015
  • Once I learn how to management my sit down Long Arm, I would think quilting would be fastest because I usually do simpler quilting designs.

    —Sandra Miller on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is my easiest thing to do. I like it because it is somewhat restful.

    —Joan on November 13, 2015
  • the sewing is by far the easiest and quickest step for me….still learning the cutting and quilting aspects…..never thought of framing a quilt before, i just love the idea and definitely gonna have to try it

    —sandie on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting goes the quickest as I’m filled with energy and excitement at the beginning of a new project !!!

    —Bonnie L Smith on November 13, 2015
  • The sewing is the quickest for me, especially when I can do chain piecing.

    —Julie Kordick on November 13, 2015
  • The binding, it all takes time but knowing it’s the last step really pushes me to finish.

    —Renee Welton on November 13, 2015
  • Hardest part for me is picking the fabric. I just love piecing it and seeing my plan come together

    —karen on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is the fastest for me because I love doing it!

    —dottie bishaw on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is the quickest step for me. Love the idea of framing a quilt! Thanks for the fantastic giveaway.

    —Bonnie on November 13, 2015
  • The cutting is the fastest. But that may be because I don’t take the time to measure twice to cut once! 😛

    Lynn Whinery on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing is the quickest for me. I dislike cutting and have to be in the mood for it. One day I’m going to invest in one of those fabric block cutting machines. …and, I still have quilts to be bound so does that tell you something?

    —Lynda Nunez on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is probably the fastest as I tend to make fairly complicated piecing in most of my quilts, but sometimes it just seems to be another step that stops me from finishing the quilt and I can’t wait to see the finished quilt.

    —Kerry on November 13, 2015
  • My favorite and quickest part is the piecing. I love to see the quilt grow from rows to one large quilt!

    —Debbie Bristow on November 13, 2015
  • I love to do binding. I am pretty fast at the handwork and I find it relaxing.

    —Shellie on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is the quickest for me, I see the end nearing fast.

    —Vicki H on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing (with the machine) is the quickest, hand sewing binding is not my favorite so it takes longer.

    —Sandy K on November 13, 2015
  • I never follow any directions so it may take a long time to get to the binding which goes very fast.

    —Judy Smith on November 13, 2015
  • I love the whole process but guess the quickest part is the binding. I always hand quilt my projects so that takes a bit longer.

    —Jan Horn on November 13, 2015
  • I don’t know if the binding is really the quickest step for me, but it seems like it because I am always so eager to have another project finished that I don’t mind binding at all.

    —Carol Vickers on November 13, 2015
  • The binding. Sometimes I take it to bed and sew while I watch a good movie.

    —Charlotte B on November 13, 2015
  • The binding and choosing the binding is by far the easiest and fastest for me

    —Anna reed on November 13, 2015
  • I love doing the binding, but think this is a great way to display a quilt and I have a number of old frames I could use.

    —Marlene on November 13, 2015
  • I don’t think I am fast at any of the above mentioned quilting processes. I am good at looking at quilt patterns and saying that I want to make them all though! Does that count? I do like the sewing part as I get to see the design take shape. Love the idea of framing a small quilt. Thanks for the tute on that process.

    I think that definitely rates as a special skill, Karen, so it counts! –Jenny

    —Karen L. on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest quilting step for me would be the cutting so I can get on with the rest of it!

    —Susan K. on November 13, 2015
  • Usually it is binding.

    —carol on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is quickest for me. I love to sit and hand bind, letting my mind wander to the next quilt project.

    —Kathy Tolbert on November 13, 2015
  • The sewing goes quickest for me. I have to take mt time with cutting, as I am only able to stand for short periods of time. The quilting time depends on by hand or machine, as well as how I am quilting it. Binding, that is TV watching time. Framing might be an excellent option for some of my orphan blocks. Great looking projects. Lovely fabric.

    —Nancy N on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing seems to be the quickest, as I enjoy it the most. I am slower to quilt qnd bind so have lots of UFOs around.

    —mary oddan on November 13, 2015
  • For me the sewing is the most fun and quickest but when I have time it is all great.
    Thanks for the chance to win a special fabric pack.

    —Jackie Lewis on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting would be it for me. If I can get that much done, there is hope that I will find the time to actually sew, which I love!

    —Arleen F. on November 13, 2015
  • The piecing is the fastest by far.

    —Thriftyredhead on November 13, 2015
  • The cutting is always the quickest part for me, it’s the excitement of a new adventure, the quilting is not a problem for me because i always bring my quilts to someone who knows how to do that part. I am still not confidant enough to try that. BUT the hand stitching takes me forever! Thanks so much for the opportunity, would love to be the winner.

    —Helen on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing,,,as I like to use precuts, I can really speed up by sewing alike pieces at the same time…Then I can go on to another part of the block or quilt using another sized precut…Love the Trail of Stars in the fame…

    —Lori M on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is the quickest piece for me.

    —Margaret on November 13, 2015
  • The binding goes the fastest. The quilting is the most time-consuming since I like to hand quilt my projects.

    —Bea on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is definitely the quickest step for me. I am so close to being finished a quilt that I can not leave binding until it is complete. I love to hand sew my bindings so this often leads to sore hands with a very large quilt. Framing quilts is a wonderful idea. I will try this for some Christmas gifts. I will miss the binding stage but save time. Thanks for offering a giveaway of this beautiful fabric and book.

    —Audrey on November 13, 2015
  • The cutting is the quickest for me!

    —Theresa B on November 13, 2015
  • the binding, but it is the most tedious step

    —Laura Wernet on November 13, 2015
  • Buying the fabric is fastest for me! Deciding what I’m going to do with it takes the longest. I have a collection of batiks I want to make a bed cover, but I can’t make up my mind what design to use. It will be a quick quilt top, once I decide! Meanwhile I collected some Buttercream fat quarters to make a top too. That one might get made first. I know where all those pieces are!

    I love fabric! I like simple and quick so it gets done! I let the pretty fabric do the work in a simple design. Same with dressmaking.

    Thank you for the opportunity to win! I get the fabric and my daughter-in-law gets the book.

    —Mama2eight on November 13, 2015
  • It kinda depends on the quilt. If it’s simple, the cutting is the quickest. However, for a large and more complex quilt, I think the binding is the quickest step- and maybe my favorite step!

    —Dottie on November 13, 2015
  • I enjoy all of it.
    but when I do the binding, I have the finished item.
    I hope I win the fabric, its great looking…………

    —BETTY JOHANSSON on November 13, 2015
  • I love to do the binding also. It gives me great satisfaction to know I am about finished with my project. I think framing pieces of quilt is a great idea!

    —Pat on November 13, 2015
  • Binding goes quickly for me!

    —Carol Jiles-Davis on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing is the quickest for me. Beautiful material!

    —Sally on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is my quickest step, hands down. Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Kristin S on November 13, 2015
  • The sewing. I take my time with the cutting to be sure it is correct. I’m not a very confident quilter, so I’m still pretty slow.

    —Collette Morton on November 13, 2015
  • The quilting goes fastest for me because I machine quilt and I usually decide on the design while I am piecing the quilt. However if it is a small quilt, the binding could be faster than the quilting.

    —Terre Walker on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest for me is the cutting. I precut up all my scraps, so I am usually pretty ready to go on a new project. I have framed small quilted pieces to use as art,for years. I LOVE Gerri’s quilts and fabrics! Hope they come my way! ;~)

    —Donna Palmer on November 13, 2015
  • I like cutting the best, i like to get everything that needs cutting done all at once. This book has so many fun patterns. Thanks for a chance to win.

    Carmen

    Carmen on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is the quickest because I do it all by machine. I like doing the binding because it means that one is done & I can start another one!

    —Kate Desko on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is the quickest for me. I’m excited about seeing the quilt all done! Thanks for offering the give-away!

    —Wanda Bennett on November 13, 2015
  • Your examples of framing a small quilt shows me that I have another opportunity to show off my quilting skills. What a great idea for some special gifts to those I love.
    I do love binding because it tells me that I am finally going to be done with my quilt. I love doing binding while I’m watching TV.It really is relaxing. My husband can’t figure out how I can do more than one thing at the same time. Thank goodness we have more than one TV!

    —Jeanette Fairman on November 13, 2015
  • I love the whole process of making a quilt; from picking out the pattern, then the perfect fabrics. Cutting it all out, then piecing it together. I would have to say putting the binding on it is the fastest and most satisfying part of the quilt making process.

    —Joyce Wilson on November 13, 2015
  • Choosing my fabrics is the most fun for me. I really enjoy going thru my stash to start and maybe having to go to the quilt store to get just the right additional fabrics I will need to start my project. Binding is my least favorite part of quilt so love the framing idea and will definitely have to try it soon.

    —Shirley Harrison on November 13, 2015
  • My problem is that everything always takes longer then I think it will. I think cutting goes the fastest for me. I use my GO! cutter when I can. It is great. I love the idea of framing pieces. I even have some individual blocks I might try it on.

    —Terri Mowery on November 13, 2015
  • I find binding the most relaxing but the quickest is the piecing.

    —Gail on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is by far the easiest for me .I"m then so close to seeing the finished project. It is also very relaxing to do the binding. I can interact with other people or watch a movie.

    —Jo on November 13, 2015
  • All aspects of making a quilt thrills me. But if I have to choose it is the quilting. I haven’t done a quilt in reds, but these are gorgeous, would love to win.

    —Ruby Davis on November 13, 2015
  • I think the sewing is the fastest, as I try to assembly line sew as much as possible.

    —Sharon Vukan on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing is usually the quickest step for me. Whenever possible I like to do chain piecing.

    —Bridget on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is the fastest step for me. Quilting is the longest because I like to quilt it to death!!

    Susan the Farm Quilter on November 13, 2015
  • The binding of course. The binding is always the most fun… the last stitch and the quilt is done.

    —LaNice Murphy on November 13, 2015
  • For me, the quickest part is the sewing. The quilting and the binding is the most laborious part of the process. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    —Carmen Rowan on November 13, 2015
  • Buying fabric is fastest but love every step

    —barbara woods on November 13, 2015

    —Lee on November 13, 2015

    —Robin M on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing

    —Tabitha D. Bezalel on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is probably the quickest part of my work — I spend a lot of time planning the cutting before I even start, and hand quilting is, for me, the best but longest part.

    —Elizabeth Monahan on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing is the fast part of quilting …..happyness04431@yahoo.com

    Anna Lutz-Brown on November 13, 2015
  • The cutting is always the quickest. I have found so many amazing tools and short cuts over the year. I love the cutting more with each passing year. I’ve never framed a quilt before, but may try that with the next project. That sounds quick!

    —Brenda Mc on November 13, 2015
  • Quickest step is the pin-basting, with everything spread on the floor. Most enjoyed part is the Handquilting. It’s all about he fabric.

    —Ragmop/Sandy on November 13, 2015
  • I generally don’t find any steps to completing a quilt as quick. However, if the pattern is very basic then cutting is the quickest of the steps.

    —marlene on November 13, 2015
  • I love your website, it is always full of beautiful, lovely, enticing works of art that gets those juices flowing. But to be honest, much I enjoy feeling, looking and buying books, fabric, etc, I have never become a quilter at heart. So in all honesty, the quickest step for me is to drool and dismiss the idea as fast I can. The fabric looks, lovely thoughts come to mind how I ciuld use it as a sewer! Keep us the good work!

    Betty, thanks so much for your comment–sometimes to be inspired is all that we need! –Jenny

    —betty on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is quickest for me too!! It is always fun to be at the end of a project and see how all the piecing and quilting have come together.
    And then it’s on to another project!!!

    Elaine on November 13, 2015
  • For me, the cutting takes the longest, partially because it also involves ironing. I actually enjoy almost all of the steps equally!

    —Elizabeth McDonald on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest step is the binding because by then the complicated parts are done.

    —Elaine on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is the quickest step for me. I love the quilting part the best.

    —Tammy Bearden on November 13, 2015
  • That depends on the quilt. I usually think the cutting is the fastest but sometimes the sewing can be faster. Thanks for the chance at these great fabic and book.

    —Rina on November 13, 2015
  • I really enjoy the binding, and seeing the whole quilt come together – but the quickest part for me, I think, is sewing the top together.

    —Karen on November 13, 2015
  • The quilting is the quickest and most rewarding part for me. It signals the end of another project and finally, what was in my head when I began is real.

    Loretta on November 13, 2015
  • I think the quickest for me is the cutting. Then the binding because I can tell myself "mission accomplished ".

    Joyce King on November 13, 2015
  • Definitely the binding. That always go by very quickly.

    —Emily C on November 13, 2015
  • I do love doing the binding, as then the quilt is almost completed. However, the cutting process is the quickest for me. I love the idea of framing a quilt though. Awesome!

    —Gloria on November 13, 2015
  • Like many others, I must say binding. I have always found the handwork pleasant and once I start, I usually work straight through. Therefore, it’s the quickest!

    —Susan on November 13, 2015
  • I usually either tie or quilt around sqares when I make a quilt. Once in awhile I have my friend do long arm quilting for me. The expense doesn’t let me do that too often and only for very special pieces. It would be so nice to win the book and the fabrics. Thanks for offering a chance at these things.

    —Barbara Dolan on November 13, 2015
  • Hi, the cutting for me. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Pam White on November 13, 2015
  • Usually the cutting is faster…tho I do pretty simple patterns still! lol Do like getting to the binding..because it means I am closer to Gifting the Quilt! (giving is my verrrry favorite part of quilting!)

    Thanks for chance to win this Give-a-way too!! Beautiful fabrics!

    —Lori Morton on November 13, 2015
  • I love the sewing. Sitting down in front of my sewing machine with a pile of fresh cut fabric pieces, and creating a vision into reality .

    —sheilah rushing on November 13, 2015
  • I actually don’t mind binding. I tack it down while watching TV or listening to an audiobook. Since I don’t have much wall space, framing doesn’t work well for me. But Geri’s quilts and fabrics are lovely bound, too.

  • The sewing is the fastest and the most fun step for me. I love the fabric in your gift. I am thinking of so many pretty projects for this fabric. The book is a great prize, also and I would enjoy reading it and putting it to good use! Thank you for the opportunity to win this fabulous prize.

    I enjoy your blog. I may try framing a small quilt following your excellent instructions. Thanks!

  • The binding is usually the fastest for me, but sometimes the cutting is.

    —Betty Dvorak on November 13, 2015
  • Usually sewing is the quickest step for me as I try to get everything ready ahead for that step.

    —tac on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting my fabric is the fastest but binding is by far my favorite. It allows me time to reflect on all the previous steps and the excitement the quilt will bring to the receiver. Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Diana Collins on November 13, 2015
  • I think I love the cutting the most – I am always soooo optimistic I will finish the project! My least favorite thing is the binding so I would love a book that gives me different options.

    —Susan Putman on November 13, 2015
  • The hardest part of quilting and what takes the longest for me is choosing the fabrics. The quickest part of quilting is giving the finished quilt away.

    —Brenda on November 13, 2015
  • The cutting step in quilting is the easiest for me. I have a few cut out and can picture them all together in my mind. The hardest part is finding time to sit down and sew, for me. I am new to quilting so I haven’t sat down and put the binding on any quilts yet. Who knows I may change my opinion when I do. Ask me again next year 🙂 I love reds! Thank you for the chance to win some lovely fabric and the tutorial.

    —Paige Gonzalez on November 13, 2015
  • The binding has always been my favourite. It takes a certain amount of time to pick and chose just the right one to compliment the quilt. Also, when I get to the binding, I know I’m almost finished. And sewing on the binding can be very relaxing.

    —Heartsdesire on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting the pieces is surely the quickest, but the binding is the most relaxing. It would be fun, though, to frame some smaller pieces. I’m looking forward to seeing "A Cut Above" whether by winning it OR buying it. Thank you for this opportunity.

    —Glenna Denman on November 13, 2015
  • The sewing goes the fastest…cutting is the bane of my existence (whether sewing garments or quilts). By the time I am ready to do the finish work, I can’t get it done quick enough.

    —Janie on November 13, 2015
  • It’s a toss-up among the cutting, sewing and binding. I’m basically slow in all 3 areas trying to be perfect.

    —Diana Salmon on November 13, 2015
  • It totally depends on the complexity of the quilt. Probably the binding takes the least amount of time but I love all the parts of making a quilt.

    —Joan on November 13, 2015
  • I really enjoy binding my quilts……the finishing touch!……..but LOVE the idea of framing a quilt.

    —Rosemary Bertok on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing is my quickest step- once everything is cut and ready then the sewing is easy-

    —Karen H on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is my fastest

    —Mary D. on November 13, 2015
  • I am new to quilting but so far I really like the cutting element to quilting. I like seeing the pieces so neatly stacked and ready to assemble.

    —Mary D. on November 13, 2015
  • The sewing goes the fastest for me, but the quilting seems to take me forever.

    —Sue Nugent on November 13, 2015
  • For me the cutting goes quickest. It tkes me a long time to chose the fabrics, I am blessed to have so many options.

    —Pat G on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest part is the sewing. Binding is also really quick… once I start but I tend to put it off.

    —Peggy C on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing is probably the quickest part for me but I enjoy the binding most of all.

    —Joan H. on November 13, 2015
  • So far it’s the sewing for me. Hoping to get the binding & quilting to go quicker here pretty soon!

    —Cynthia Wilbanks on November 13, 2015
  • i have the hardest with binding

    —Karen Hopman on November 13, 2015
  • Binding takes the least time.

    —Pauline on November 13, 2015
  • Awesome

    Terri Forehand on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is the quickest, but quilting is the most relaxing. Binding can be quick or slow depending on if I machine stitch it or hand stitch it.

    —Beverly Beckman on November 13, 2015
  • While binding is not fun, it is the end of the quilt not including the label, but it seems to be the fastest!

    —Stephanie Byrd on November 13, 2015
  • Once I start binding the quilt I am so excited to complete my project, I’ve started to take my quilts to work to finish the binding – a great way to spend my lunch hour.

    —Teresa on November 13, 2015
  • The binding. I’m usually pretty motivated to get it finished!

    —Dana on November 13, 2015
  • I love the quilts and would like to make all of them

    —kathy syring on November 13, 2015

    —Lu on November 13, 2015
  • Binding the quickest, but the sewing gives most pleasure

    —Virginia in TX on November 13, 2015
  • quickest part? the binding! but have to try the framing on some ufos!

    —linda w. on November 13, 2015
  • The sewing is definitely the fastest part of making a quilt. Thank you for the chance to win!

    —Tami on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing is the quickest step for me. Quilting, unfortunately, still takes the longest. Binding is often done when I meet with my quilting
    friends each week. Framing will be a consideration for the small
    outdoor quilts. Perhaps with glass they will fade less.

    Love the book and the red fabric. Thanks

    —Ellie P on November 13, 2015
  • I can bind faster than I used to but I’m slow about everything. One of our favorite shops shows framed quilts.

    —ANN on November 13, 2015
  • BINDING GOES REAL QUICK….ONCE I SET MY MIND TO DO IT !!

    —LMJF on November 13, 2015
  • I like binding quilts but some times your quilt just looks like it needs to be framed to be showed off but needs just that little more than putting it on the bed. Sewing is the quickest step for me. Cutting has too much figuring and trying to be precise. Binding is to much figuring and by this time I’m ready to get it done. I think it would be cool to learn more ways to do things with your quilt.

    Marjorie McWilliams on November 13, 2015
  • The cutting is probably the quickest for me. I do as much chain piecing as I can to make the sewing go faster. I love the framing idea.

    —Kay McCaffery on November 13, 2015
  • The binding usually goes on the quilt very quickly but I love equally each step in making a quilt. I love the unique ideas for framing our quilts in A Cut Above.

    —Linda Webster on November 13, 2015
  • I love the sewing and enjoy watching the number of my blocks grow.

    —Marcia on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest for me is the binding. i bind everything by machine, so I’ve had lots of practice.. Love designing & piecing.

    —Caroline Rohrer on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest for me is binding. I do it all by machine, sewing back to front and topstitching from front to back. It looks great and is a snap.

    Nancy Myers on November 13, 2015
  • Because I sometimes send out my quilts to be quilted by my Amish friends to help with their personal income, I am so anxious to get them back and get the binding done. Of course, it is a most relaxing time for me since I had already picked the fabric and feel confident in the way I bind and do the corners. They always want to see the finished product so they can see my stitches and compare theirs to mine. We have a good time over their maple/lemon tea.

    —Linda L. Baker on November 13, 2015
  • I find that sewing is the quickest for me! Luv’d the tutorial on framing quilts…..something I’ve been meaning to do for a while now. Thanks for the chance to win this awesome bundle of material.

    —Virgi on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting is the fastest part of making the quilt for me. I usually my die cut machine for cutting.

    —Nelda Mohr on November 13, 2015
  • Depending on how detailed the quilt top is, for me, sewing the top is probably the fastest part of making a quilt, but sewing the binding is a relaxing part of the project. 🙂

    —sue on November 13, 2015
  • I like the sewing – I choose simple quilt patterns because I don’t want to go crazy over a complex pattern, thus spoiling the fun of quilting. I love the idea of framing a small quilt. Binding is a part that for me is more complex (since I want my quilt to be perfect!), so I think that framing a quilt is a great idea.

    —Karen F on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is a quickest step for me

    Éva Kuti on November 13, 2015
  • The binding, definitely not the cutting. Once the binding is done I can start another quilt.

    —Heather Hiley on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing goes quickest for me as I contemplate design changes while cutting and quilting and tend to delay binding.

    —Marty on November 13, 2015
  • I love cutting. Trufthfully all of it is really Exciting!

    —Victoria on November 13, 2015

  • The binding, everything else I like to take my time on. Enjoy the journey.

    —Debbie Chenoweth on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is the quickest step for me, by then I want to get the quilt finished!

    —Maureen Haynes on November 13, 2015
  • The easist part to me is sewing the quilt top, especially doing it in the company of my wonderful quilting companions at our quilt bee or quilt retreats.

    —Barbara on November 13, 2015
  • None it all takes time. I put effort into every step to make it right. Cutting can be fast with precuts jelly rolls. Sewing can be fast if straight seams. Quilting can be fast if I do not put a lot of detail into the quilting. As I have more and more vision problems, I am going blind, sewing takes time. Joy the process and love your effort and art.

    —Linda Christianson on November 13, 2015
  • I think for me the binding is the quickest, although I enjoy the hand work, all the other steps take more time due to accuracy needed for the quilt to come out right.

    —Donna on November 13, 2015
  • I can sew like the wind so construction is my fastest! Those framed quilts are wonderful and I will have to try it!

    —Joann Bauer on November 13, 2015
  • The sewing is usually the fastest, provided that I’m organized.

    —Sandy Streifel on November 13, 2015
  • I don’t think I have a quick step but I love finding easier ways. Accuquilt helps, precuts are wonderful, no binding, great idea in my book.

    —Chris on November 13, 2015
  • getting into the sewing as it takes forever to decide for sure on the fabrics to use when designing a quilt

    —Esther on November 13, 2015
  • Cutting – because something creative is about to happen!

    —Melody Lutz on November 13, 2015
  • Preparing the binding is the quickest step for me. But I am the world’s slowest seamstress when it comes to hand stitching the binding to finish the quilt.

    —Camille on November 13, 2015
  • Binding is the quickest step for me. I do my binding entirely by machine unless I’m making a very special quilt. I love binding because I can see the culmination of all of my hard work wrapping up so quickly.

    —Sarah on November 13, 2015
  • It’s a toss-up between cutting and sewing as to which is the quickest. I try to organize patches as I cut so the sewing goes quicker.

    —Cegnfred on November 13, 2015
  • In real time, the binding is faster than the other stages. I love the piecing.

    —Elaine on November 13, 2015
  • Sewing! I need to get back at it, and these fabrics are so lovely! Thank you for the chance!

    —Robin on November 13, 2015
  • The quickest step is binding, but my most favorite step is choosing the fabric and pattern. I buy all of mccalls magazines just for Jerri’s patterns, I’ve made several of hers. This book looks awesome! My next quilt is her gold dust pattern and two of my kids are fighting over who will get that quilt. Thanks!

    Ha ha, that is a wonderful compliment to you, Karlene – let us know who wins! 🙂 –Jenny

    —Karlene Riggs on November 13, 2015

    —JoAnne T. on November 13, 2015
  • I love the sewing part the best, that is the sewing of the blocks. I just love the labeling and binding step because it signifies the ending of the one quilt and the chance to start another one. Thank you sew much for the giveaway chance.

    —Judith Nicholson on November 13, 2015
  • The quilting goes the fastest. By the time I finish something, I’m usually up against a deadline for gift occasion. So motivation equals speed. Thanks for the chance to win this lovely fabric and book!

    —Pam S on November 13, 2015
  • I would have to say cutting. Choosing the fabric and getting it sliced up then I can take all the time I need/have to complete the sewing (unless it’s for a gift of coarse).

    —ELIZAJANE on November 13, 2015
  • The binding is the quickest for me. It takes the least amount of time. The hardest is picking out the materials I want in the quilt.

    —Doreen S on November 13, 2015
  • It’s probably the cutting. I thought of the binding but for sure, it’s the cutting.

    —Judy on November 13, 2015
  • I’m a quick cutter and a slow binder. Great idea for small quilts.

    —kbo on November 14, 2015
  • My cutting is spurred by my dreams of the finished quilt but I am slower in each subsequent process, moved only by fear of another UFO. At the binding point I rally a little, with completion of my quilt coinciding with disbelief and relief. I have more quilts to finish before I can be confidence for stages beyond the cutting of fabric to be as swift.

    —Louise Hanby on November 14, 2015
  • The sewing seems to be quickest part for me.

    —Gwendolyn Clark on November 14, 2015

    —Nancy Opela on November 14, 2015
  • I think binding is both quick and easy.
    Once I get thru planning, cutting, sewing, and deciding
    On the quilting, all that’s left is binding. I often do that
    while watching TV. It just seems to go faster.

    —Candy Perry on November 14, 2015
  • Sewing goes rather quickly, unless it is a very involved pattern. Binding takes me awhile. I like to watch movies or catch up on my TV shows. Sometimes I get more interested in them and forget to sew.

    Lore Stanley on November 14, 2015
  • Practice makes perfect, I’ve had lost of practice and now binding is both quick and easy and less time consuming for me and adds the final touch, a fabric frame if you like!

    —Berylr on November 14, 2015

  • The sewing goes quickly if it’s a good day without mistakes.

    —Sam on November 14, 2015

    —Janice on November 14, 2015
  • For me it is the sewing, I love to see the progress on each block as it is being made.

    Lou Anderson on November 14, 2015
  • Binding always goes fastest as I’m in a hurry to see the completed project (and get on to the next one!)

    —Linda on November 14, 2015
  • The stage that goes the fastest for me, is the binding. Not because it represents the completion of the quilt, it’s just the step that I have become very good at over the years. Just as the cutting out stage is always stressful and protracted (not to mention mistake-ridden) for me because I’m poor at it, so the binding stage virtually flies by, by comparison!!

    —Suzanne Lamb on November 14, 2015
  • I would say the binding, as I do it watching TV so I don’t notice the time.

    —Jeanmarie Kollenkark on November 14, 2015
  • The quickest step for me is the binding. I use a faux piped binding that I learned from Melody crust several years ago. It looks great and is all machine done. Lately I’ve seen several tutorials on it.

    —NancyB on November 14, 2015
  • Binding is the fastest. Then I can have that happy dance because my quilt is finally finished.

    —Linda S on November 14, 2015

    —Sheila Heilman on November 14, 2015
  • I would have to say that the binding usually goes quickest. That’s good, because it also means I’m almost finished. The fabrics are lovely!

    Ruth Janssen on November 14, 2015
  • Sewing!! I love the cutting process also but it does take me some time to get all the cutting done for a project. Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

    —Renea on November 14, 2015
  • I just love my GO cutter – have used it for all my quilts. I will even adapt the block sizes so I am able to use the die that I own. Gerri Robinson is one of my favorites – have two of her books. and would love to have this one – and this lovely fabric line. Thank you for this giveaway.

    —Shirley on November 14, 2015
  • The quickest for me is the cutting. I love cutting my pieces! I am very organized about it and like to see the piles of pieces sitting beside me. But I want ALL of the pieces cut and the scraps are put away! Seems like I always end up having to pull fabric back out and re-cut something! Oh well! Would love this gift!

    Kathy G. on November 14, 2015
  • Usually the sewing goes the quickest, but that depends on the design. I just finished a quilt with 36 blocks, and each block had 51 pieces in it ! That was NOT a quick sew!

  • Cutting out the fabric is the quickest

    —Kris Walter on November 14, 2015

    —Annamarie Werner on November 14, 2015

    —Susan K on November 14, 2015
  • I love the binding part of making a quilt. It is so relaxing to sit and hand sew the final leg of making the quilt and then the quilt is done and can be enjoyed. Thanks, Gerri. Love your designs and fabric.

    —Joyce O. on November 14, 2015
  • I would say it’s my cutting. I like to spend a day just cutting and preparing a variety of projects so when I have some free time, I can just sit and sew. I like to bag each project with the pattern, fabric, thread and other necessities that way everything is together and I can finish quicker because I’m not hunting for my supplies.

    —Mary Smith on November 14, 2015
  • The sewing is the fastest for me.

    Sallie on November 14, 2015
  • The quickest step of a quilt, for me, is the binding. It’s the simplest step, I think. Also, I enjoy all of the steps of binding and I end up with very good looking bindings. (PS – I am working on one of Geri’s quilts from a magazine, and have several others flagged! I also love this new fabric line of hers.)

    —Karen on November 14, 2015
  • I like to sew by hand so none of it is really "fast!"
    I love the "Classic Elegance" fabrics!

    —Lynn on November 14, 2015
  • I find that the actual sewing / piecing is the quickest step for me. I have tendonitis in my shoulder and cutting and quilting aggravate that, but the sewing is a breeze! I really enjoy the satisfaction of doing the binding, but still find that I have to motivate myself to get it done – but any time I can grab a few minutes to sew, I’m behind the machine!

    Jannette B on November 14, 2015
  • The sewing is the most enjoyable for me so it always seems to be the quickest. Thanks for the giveaway!

    —Diane on November 14, 2015

    Translation: I love quilting, the time I take is very valuable. It is the thing that I like and it relaxes me a lot.

    —assunta on November 14, 2015
  • Binding goes quickest. Choosing fabrics is usually the longest, and often the most enjoyable. Piecing and Quilting take about the same length of time, although the quilting may take place long after the top is finished. UFO’s anyone? lol

    —Carol Smith on November 14, 2015
  • The binding goes quickest for me. I usually take hand work to the various sit ‘n sews and visit through the whole task. Plus I get to look at whatever pretty thing I created while finishing it off.

    —Lee Kallusch on November 14, 2015
  • My quickest step (as a newbie!) is the cutting….I have not done my own quilting or binding yet! But I MUST try as it is getting toooo expensive to NOT do it yourself!!!

    —Sue Gelles on November 14, 2015
  • It all depends on the particular quilt I am making. For some quilts, it could be the cutting, others the piecing and still others the quilting and binding.

    —Susan on November 14, 2015
  • I guess the binding. Maybe I’m just ready to get a project completed and I stick with it and get ‘er done.

  • The quickest step for me is putting it away to start another project…LOL! No really, I think the quickest part is the quilting for me. Once I get the quilt put together I want to get it quilted quickly. I quilt on my domestic machine and I find that I can get a quilt done in a matter of hours compared to sewing for days and days. I am looking forward to framing a quilt. I have some orphan blocks that will make a cute wall hanging and I will try your instructions.

    Susan Paxton on November 14, 2015
  • Definitely the binding. Love this part since it means I’m almost finished and I love the feel of the quilt when I’m hand-sewing the binding.

    —bert on November 14, 2015
  • I’ve never really paid attention as to what is fastest, but I would say the cutting. Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Marilyn S on November 14, 2015
  • I think that I find the sewing the quickest part of a project.

    The hardest part is deciding what to make!

    —Gloria on November 14, 2015
  • The cutting is the quickest .. What with precuts and special rulers .. I would love this giveaway .. My favorite colors are red and white . Thanks …

    —Mary on November 14, 2015
  • Cutting is the fastest and hand sewing the binding is the slowest. But I enjoy the relaxation and the finished look of hand binding. However I am interested in learning how to frame small quilts.

    —Joanie on November 14, 2015
  • The process of sewing and binding a quilt, is my Therapy, and I do need a lot of that Therapy!!!! Thanks for the chance to win, it would be so great to have those fabrics.

    —Charlie on November 14, 2015
  • the binding, I really enjoy the finsh. I have the hardest time commiting to cutting and getting started:(

    —ellen Kran on November 14, 2015
  • For me the fastest part of quilt making is the binding. I’m usually anxious to finish my quilt so I get the binding done quickly and I do enjoy the handwork on it.

    —Kaye M. on November 14, 2015
  • The easiest and quickest part for me is the cutting. In fact, cutting is almost a meditative process! When I’m stressed or need to consider a challenge in my life, I grab the fabric and start cutting shapes. Then, when someone asks, I can say I spent the afternoon in meditation. It’s a win-win.

    —Sally A. on November 14, 2015
  • The sewing together is the easiest for me an funnest too

    —Lynnette Lamance on November 14, 2015
  • The quickest and most fun for me is the sewing the pieces together

    —Dorothy Livernash on November 14, 2015
  • The binding is the quickest step for me, since it is all in one piece and I just have to stitch it on and then stitch it down. Done and Done. Thanks.

    —Mom C on November 14, 2015
  • It depends but I like the sewing better.

    —Sonia on November 14, 2015
  • The fastest part for me is the actual sewing. I tend to cut slowly to be sure I don’t mess up.

    —Karen Carlson on November 14, 2015
  • The binding because it is the last step and once you finish this step your project is completed.

    Cynthia on November 14, 2015
  • I don’t even know if I qualify! I’ve never finished a quilt yet. I have one lap sized, pieced top and I’m ABOUT to finish my first quilt complete with quilting and binding. It’s a T is for Tiny quilt that will finish at 7 3/4″ x 10″. I’m going to finish it this coming week. For me the slowest part is selecting the fabric. I know the fastest will be binding the quilt. I’m looking forward to finishing and moving on to another quilt! I love Gerri’s patterns and fabrics because the contrast really makes the piecing shine! I’d love to win her "give-away"!

    —Billie on November 14, 2015
  • The sewing is the most enjoyable. I love seeing the vision in my head come into being. But the binding is the quickest even though I sew it to the back.

    —Nancy Angerer on November 14, 2015
  • Cutting is always the fastest for me. I’m so excited to start a new project!

    —Sheila on November 14, 2015
  • The binding. Lovely fabric.

    Trena on November 14, 2015
  • The binding is quickest for me. Thank you for the fabulous giveaway, Gerri is awesome.

    —Janie on November 14, 2015
  • the cutting is the quickest part for me. Word to the wise. I have been a cross=stitch and embroidery enthusiast for years, and was always told NOT to put fabric under glass, it needs to breathe. If you put it under glass, moisture/humidity can get caught in it, and mildew it.

    —Madeline on November 14, 2015
  • Cutting is the fastest part for me. I have a couple of quilts that are cut, but still are not sewn even though the cutting was done some time ago. It’s because I have too many projects on the go at one time. Trying to finish things before I start on something new!
    Thanks for the chance to win that lovely fabric and that beautiful book!

    —Jacqueline on November 14, 2015
  • It depends on the quilt. But once I decide on the fabrics, cutting is probably the quickest part, although I don’t usually do all of the cutting at once – just in case I change my mind.
    Love the pictures of the framed quilts.

    —sissa on November 14, 2015
  • I’m not real fast at any of them, but if I had to pick, I would say cutting, because I really love to get going on the fabric, making those little pieces. I used to be afraid to cut into my pretty fabric, but I have gotten over that in a hurry, as I envision what the whole project will look like in the end.

    —Pamela Zajicek on November 14, 2015
  • I love the whole process, and I don’t do any of them quickly.
    I do think that cutting is usually the quickest!

    —Susan on November 14, 2015
  • For me, the quickest part of a quilt is the binding. It´s so relaxing and it means, that the quilt is nearly finished! Thank you for the possibility of winning so beautiful fabrics.

    —Regina on November 14, 2015
  • Usually the cutting is the fastest. Then, the piecing is the most relaxing.

    —Sue L on November 14, 2015
  • The cutting and sewing is the quickest for me.

    —T Hays on November 14, 2015
  • I like the cutting (quickest) but I love sewing it all together. Small pieces of fabric become a work of art and magic.

    —Stephani Beattie on November 14, 2015
  • Cutting is the quickest for me.

    —Gail Kelly on November 14, 2015
  • Depends on the project, but generally cutting is the fastest. Thanks for the opportunity, I would love to have the fabric and defiantly am going to try the framing idea!

    —Tammy on November 14, 2015
  • for sure, sewing is the quickest step for me, cutting is a challenge and I have binding envy for those who say binding is quickest (not for me)…I like the idea of framing–cheers for tutorial, etc.
    Carol

    —Carol on November 14, 2015
  • Sewing goes the quickest after taking time to cut with precision. How delightful to offer the gift of fabric and a book for others to enjoy quilting!

    Janine Watts on November 14, 2015
  • I always find the cutting easiest for me.

    —Darrell on November 14, 2015
  • I love learning every thing new !! I love the Chance to be able to win fabric or anything LOL!!

    —Linda Smith on November 14, 2015
  • Cutting is the fastest, because it brings new inspiration.

    —Grace S on November 14, 2015
  • Binding is the quickest and most fun because when it’s done it’s done

    —Judy Allen on November 14, 2015
  • Sewing is the fastest. I dither and stew over the cutting, I procrastinate over the quilting, and I am painfully slow at binding (well, I am if I do it right, anyway!)

    —Jan Gervin on November 14, 2015
  • Sewing! Beautiful site, I love framing pieces. Gives them a whole different look. Framed blocks in red & greens make great Holiday gifts.

    —Tamara on November 14, 2015
  • I think cutting is the fastest for me, but it depends on the quilt. I enjoy every step. Great book. I like many of the designs, and the framing info is good to know.

    —Maryellen on November 14, 2015
  • Not sure about the fastest, but the sewing/piecing part is definitely my favorite!

    —Kathy on November 14, 2015
  • I love the whole process of making a quilt but do mine it’s the quilting that goes fastest!

    —Cathy K on November 14, 2015
  • Cutting goes the fastest for me. I have to think more when putting blocks together so they turn out right, and I’m picky about making corners that meet just right. I dread binding. Well, maybe it’s the sandwiching and making sure everything is flat – no puckers – before binding.

    —Donna Whitney on November 14, 2015
  • The sewing is the fastest process for me. The cutting can be challenging as l always check twice before cutting, to avoid errors )which has caused me many UFO’s due to having to come up with an alternative in fabric selection to finish my project. The binding is another challenge as not a very fast in hand stitching.

    —Anne on November 14, 2015
  • It depends on the size of the quilt, of course, but binding goes quickly for me. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    —Kristi Castanette on November 14, 2015
  • Binding is the quickest part for me !

    —June G on November 14, 2015
  • Binding is quickest

    —Shirley P on November 14, 2015
  • Thanks for the chance to receive those gorgeous fabrics. I enjoy all the parts of creating a quilt. The fastest part for me is the cutting as I tend to use lots of pre-cuts especially jelly rolls and fat quarters. I have some hand issues so the precuts make my fabric handling and cutting processes much faster. Thanks!

    —Laurel Smith on November 14, 2015
  • Please, please, please let me win so I can make more quilts for people who need the warmth and caring that can only come from a quilt made with empathy and understanding.
    Thank you.

    —Sue Einar on November 14, 2015
  • The quickest part for me is the sewing. But I LOVE the creativity of figuring out what I am going to machine quilt and then doing it. Many a time I’ve lost track of time and found myself quilting away at 4 am! It’s so much fun though and so worth the end result…
    Thanks for the opportunity to win the lovely fabrics. I just love Gerri’s work.

    —Debbi W on November 14, 2015
  • Sewing is the quickest for me but I love picking out fabric. It may not be the quickest but it is definitely the most enjoyable for me. I am excited for the chance to win those beautiful fabrics and the book. I already know which pattern I would like to make too.

    Melissa on November 15, 2015
  • I think the binding is the fastest. It may be that I get faster because I’m finishing, either way, it is a great feeling.Thank you for the chance to win. This is an awesome giveaway.

    —Karen Propes on November 15, 2015
  • Sewing is the quickest to me, just line them up and daisy chain.

    —Robyn Fairclough on November 15, 2015
  • Usually, it’s the binding. Once I learned how to "finish" matching the ends, I don’t mind putting the binding on any quilt. The hardest part of this process can often be dealing with the weight of the quilt, depending on how large it is. Queen size quilts are just heavy &h as RD t o move around.

    —Nancy Josey on November 15, 2015
  • My cutting goes the fastest. It is like preparing for vacation….you just can’t get there fast enough. Love the fabrics, Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Tammy on November 15, 2015
  • I think the sewing goes the fastest. Once all the pieces are cut, I just sew, sew, sew!

    —Annmarie on November 15, 2015
  • For smaller projects it’s the cutting…. for larger projects it’s the sewing.

    —Kim D. on November 15, 2015
  • The quilting is the fastest part for me.

    —DebrafromMD on November 15, 2015
  • The binding because I want to see the project completed so I hand stitch as fast as I can.

    —Connie on November 15, 2015
  • The binding goes the quickest for me; I love the feeling of being nearly done, sitting under my quilt and hand stitching the edges.

    —Ruth on November 15, 2015
  • The binding seems to go the fastest for me. Cutting for a big block quilt may take the prize in some cases.

    —Karen Seitz on November 15, 2015
  • The binding goes fastest, as my quilts are always a stop an start project. Stop for work, making dinner, the grandkids ect.

    —Charlotte Ceeko on November 15, 2015
  • I’m not sure exactly what’s the fastest part, but my favourite part is the cutting. I love starting a new project!

    —Arianna M. on November 15, 2015
  • The whole process is beautiful and relaxing! The binding is special because its the last step for another finished project. thanks fr a chance to win.

    —Anna Hollar on November 15, 2015
  • When I am stressed I like to start a quilt & relax from cutting to sewing to putting on the binding. I dont want to quit til the top is done. after it’s quilted I relax some more with the hand stitching of the binding. I get lots of help from my two little dogs who think the quilt makes a wonderful napping place, while i’m working on it.

    —EveVanna Hedrich on November 15, 2015
  • The sewing is the fastest for me. Once I start it’s hard for me to stop because I’m anxious to see what it’s going to look like. Not unusual for me to have a top pieced together, by machine, in just one day.

    —Gail Davis on November 15, 2015
  • Cutting is the quickest step for me! Thanks!

    —Anel on November 15, 2015
  • Cutting seems to be the easiest and fastest step for me. The book looks like it contains some great ideas.

    —Lillian K on November 15, 2015
  • Cutting – it’s the finishing that seems to drag on forever.

    —Colleen on November 15, 2015
  • I love every part of the process of quilting, but none of it seems to go quickly for me. I have too many irons in the fire so it seems to take me forever to finish a quilt. I do relish the binding process because that means a project is almost completed. I’d love to try to frame a project, however, so i could skip that step!

    —Ann S on November 15, 2015
  • Cutting, I have several that have not gotten past the sewing stage, but I do like to sew them too!

    —Sandy Case on November 15, 2015
  • I love all the process of quilting from the start to the end.

    —daniela on November 16, 2015
  • The binding.

    —Nancy Magee on November 16, 2015
  • Binding would be the quickest at this point of my experience with quilting. However, I have just started FMG and think that will be the most enjoyable
    and and quickest soon. Lovely fabric and would love to win the book. I will be framing some mini quilt this Christmas thank to you. I find this idea a new exciting challenge. I will be following to see what other exciting project
    you can teach me.
    Thank you again

    Tonia L. Conner on November 16, 2015
  • I think the sewing goes the fastest because I can’t wait to see the finished top!

    —Elaine on November 16, 2015
  • the quickest part for me in quilting, if done on the machine. what an awesome giveaway1 thank you

    —Rebecca H on November 16, 2015
  • Sewing goes quickest for me. Cutting is tedious!

    —Teresa on November 16, 2015

    —Kristine R. on November 16, 2015
  • The sewing part is the quickest part of the whole thing! Love the framed quilting – gives me ideas! Thanks

    —Donna H. on November 16, 2015
  • The cutting seems to go the fastest for me.

    —Annette on November 16, 2015
  • The binding is the finishing line. It gives me the opportunity to multi-task (conversation or TV watching). The whole process gives me the time to think and pray for the person receiving the quilt. I love all of it!

    —Ann R on November 16, 2015
  • what’s quickest? it depends on the project, but generally the binding is the quickest step. It’s also a change of pace, I can do handwork while socializing in the family room. Most other steps are in the sewing room, so binding can be fun…for a change.

    —MaryJ B. on November 16, 2015
  • Hard to say…if I’m cutting from yardage, that can be the fastest. But if I’m cutting from the scraps of my scraps 🙂 that is definitely the slowest. So…it all depends!

    —Carol K on November 16, 2015
  • Probably the cutting out. Gerri is one of my favorite designers – I can always spot her designs before I see her name.

    Miss Jean on November 16, 2015
  • Definitely quilting on my home machine, even though it’s big! I love how there’s "ghost" of a sewing machine in the framed with glass quilt. See the shape of a sewing machine in the reflection?

    —Cindy S on November 16, 2015
  • I am not sure which one is the quickest – probably sewing the borders on my pieced quilts – especially the outer border!

    —Kathie R on November 16, 2015
  • The binding is quickest for me…I am learning techniques to make it quick and professional. I frame much of my wool applique projects and this is giving me new ideas for wall hangings! Love Gerri’s fabric designs and Red Rooster fabrics!

    —Marilyn on November 16, 2015
  • My favorite part of is the sewing of the quilt top. I love seeing the top come together.

    —Carol Roberts on November 16, 2015
  • the quickest quilting step for me is the binding – thanks for this amazing prize package, I’d love to win and make a quilt for my daughter & her husband

    —Jennifer Essad on November 16, 2015
  • i THINK THE BINDING IS THE EASIEST PROCESS FOR ME, I KNOW THE QUILT IS FINISHED AND THE LAST PIECE IS VERY RELAXING AND THINKING WHAT THE LABEL WILL SAY AND PERHAPS WHO WILL BE GIFTED SOMEDAY BY MY BEAUTIFUL QUILT.

    Althea Klosterman on November 16, 2015
  • The Binding, or wrapping the quilt on a frame. I do both often! Then I know my hard work is coming to an end and I’ll be able to see the whole quilt in it’s beautiful entirety. The mistakes have been fixed or incorporated into the design. Love it, and love Red Rooster fabrics.

    —Fran on November 17, 2015
  • None of it is exactly speedy for me, but I’d say cutting is the quickest step.

    Carmen N on November 17, 2015
  • The binding is the quickest step. And I am always so motivated to complete the quilt that I think I work faster.

    —Becky G on November 17, 2015
  • Quickest step for me is the sewing it all together 🙂 Thanks for another great giveaway!

    —Dawn Hollingsworth on November 17, 2015
  • Probably the sewing….I can machine stitch the binding on quickly, but then I prefer to hand stitch to the back and that takes time.

    —Rosalie on November 17, 2015
  • People think I am nuts, but I love making bias binding for my quilts (& for my friends who hate it)I’m so excited at finally finishing a project that I am infused with enthusiasm. It’s amazing the amount of binding you can get from even a 12″ x 22″ fabric piece! I’m such a stickler, I redo imperfect intersections; sweat when I cut because I’m math challenged: ditto for making borders-all that measuring; so it’s the binding that is quick and wonderful. Maybe less wonderful than winning the giveaway might be, but still great!

    —Sarah S on November 17, 2015
  • The fastest part for me is the quilting. I think, never really timed the steps!

    —Lee Taylor on November 17, 2015
  • The quickest step for me is the sewing and then the binding

    —Patricia Phaiah on November 18, 2015
  • I’m pretty new to quilting so for me the sewing seems to be the quickest part right now. My patterns have been fairly simple but I am very careful with my cutting so it takes me longer.

    —Carole Baldwin on November 18, 2015
  • The binding is the fastest step for me. Not necessarily my favourite…but for sure the fastest.

    Awesome giveaway and thanks for the opportunity! I really hope I win!

    —Sandi on November 18, 2015

    Rose Santuci-Sofranko on November 18, 2015
  • With the rotary cutter, the cutting is the easiest. LOVE the faric,it’s my favorite color- red.
