    are you a quilting junky?

    do you have quilts everywhere in your home, in your car, a quilted tote/purse, mug rugs, rugs, curtains, pillows, where does it all stop?

    Perhaps you have yet to join the NEWEST quilt craze!

    DO NOT faint when you see the prices though!

    I am a junky .. but not the typical... I don't keep my quilted anything. Everything I make finds homes elsewhere.. Once I am done I am really done with it and on to the next.

    Wow. I had an idea of what the price might be but - and I almost fainted - the one I looked at was 2x what I expected!!

    No, I don't have quilts all over the place but my DH wants me to cover the walls of one room with quilts because i've been putting off the painting and the room needs it badly.

    I'm a quilt junkie-sounds better than a hoarder LOL.

    I've made so many laptop bags & Ereader covers that if I charged those prices I could retire right now! Wow-$50.00 for a lap top bag??
    I pray for peace today and hope I don't have to tomorrow.

    When I was accused of living in a fantasy world I almost fell off my unicorn.

    I could see the prices on the DJ ones, after all, the licensing to do those must have cost a fortune, but the others??
    Am I missing something, are they all "famous" works of art?

    wow...

    my DH wants the wall behind our headboard covered because when the wind blows it is freezing on that wall in the winter time! It is just such a small room, I can not imagine a whole quilt hanging there....

    I must be afflicted because the first thing I did when I got my first cell was to make it a case LOL!
    I made mine with a flap out of fleece. Nice thing about that is that the fleece made the flap stay closed with no need for closures. My suggestion to my husband to make one for him was not met with any enthusiasim at all...I wonder why LOL.

    Most of my quilted things are given away too. Does that mean I escape being a junky?
