I'll share an epiphany that I had many years ago when my son was growing up and I would feel that quilt you are describing.
One day I realized this: I buy for, do for my family because their needs/wants are important to me... Then I realized and accepted this: My needs/wants are JUST as important as theirs are. That helped to alleviate some of that quilt. I realized that no one else will be considerate of my needs/wants if I myself wasn't even considerate of them.

I don't feel guilty. I am a SAHM and I am with my kids all the time. I do lots of things with them and take them many places. Even when they were little I would take time for myself. I think it makes you a better parent if you take time for yourself. I know for me being with my kids all time, while it is wonderful, can be stressful at times.
My mother always told me to take time for myself and it was one of the best pieces of advice she has ever given me. I usually leave my kids with my DH although sometimes with a babysitter. I figure if they are with my DH then they are happy and even if he doesn't do things the same why I would I know they are being taken care of.
I guess for me it is an important part of not losing myself because I have chosen to stay home.
