    My brother works at an auction and he stopped by and brought me a HUGE box of quilting books and magazines..In one of the books there is a poem that I would love to share..I found this poem to be so true..

    Quilting Fever

    It's really not a sickness,
    When you catch the bug,
    You look upon a quilt and
    Feel your heart a-tug,
    you suddenly get the urge,
    To try your hand at such,
    And see how a quilt might look,
    Made with your own special touch.
    You piece a block together
    And cannot seem to stop.
    You want to keep on sewing
    Till you've finished the top.
    You put the layers together
    And start your needle though.
    You finally get the hang of it,
    Even though it's new.
    Now your really hooked
    For you are the receiver
    Of a fateful case of
    "Quilting Fever"
    By, Charlotte Pierce

    Whoa! Ain't that the truth?! I've sure got that bug bad! I have to say I've passed it on to some of my best loved friends and family too. Thanks for the great poem to explain this terrible sickness that explains so much.
