    Before you go to sleep, are your last thoughts about quilt patterns and the colors you would choose and how you could combine the blocks? Do you love to just have an open quilt pattern book open and imagine the possibilities while you're watching TV or a passenger in the car? Were you terribly sad when HGTV canceled "Simply Quilts?" When you go online, do you check your quilting sites first for any news? Do you wear threads on your clothing (from so much sewing) and tell your friends it's your favorite accessory?

    lol... I'll consider myself, then, in the best of company! :D I have also found that I am a Huge South Seas Print collector. I love their fabrics! Oh when I began quilting, I assumed that WalMart fabric was just as suitable as any other, until I discovered our small town's only fabric shop, and oh, how wrong I was! lol The difference in the quality and feel of the fabric is like the difference between cheap sheets and pure luxury sheets. Even the fabric at Hobby Lobby cannot hold a candle to quality 100% cotton quilting fabric. We have this store in Franklin, TN (a suburb of Nashville), and you would not believe the thousands and thousands of bolts of fabrics, it's pure Heaven. :) The name of it is Stitcher's Garden if anyone in Tennessee is interested. :)

    Ohhhhh you are so "in" with the quilting crowd. :D Ain't it great? :D :-D :-D I can spend hours online at various Fabric Shops! And that is the first thing I think of when I decide to go shopping.... I route my trip around Fabric Shops. :D I've taken over 3 rooms and will soon need to find a larger home if I do not stop it though. :D :D :D It is WONDERFUL!!! :wink:

    I have my own addiction. If I see a quilt , I want to know how it is put together. I've got magazines and books, I research, Amish, Baltimore, Southwestern, I want to know the source of inspiration. The colours, the design of the fabric, if it is designer fabric, I want to know about that person. My hands are leaving me, somedays they are shaking so much, so I'm turning into an historian, Behind every quilt there is an history. Just as a painting connaisseur, I'm learning about what is related to quilting

    Welcome to the "addict" club :lol: I buy fabric all the time because i like it and stash it away until a pattern design pops into my head. I have some that have been waiting for a long time that i'm just now cutting up. Don't worry, you are in good company!!!!
