    You know you're a quilter....

    Finish this sentence. You know you're a quilter when......

    you spend more time pulling thread out of your vacuum than you do actually vacuuming.

    You know you're a quilter when...

    You find yourself looking at a pattern in the bathroom floor and thinking, "Oh, that would make a pretty quilt block. Let's see, I can make that out of half-square triangles and if I set it on point I will have large pieces of negative space to quilt in and then I can..."
    Sheila N.

    When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000 experiments before he got it to work. A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times. He said, "I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a 2000 step process."

    You know you are a quilter when

    -- you freeze the TV picture so you can sketch out the pattern in the bathroom tile because the pattern would make a great quilt.
