    Blessed are the piecemakers for they shall quilt forever

    Good friends are like quilts, they age with you, yet never loose their warmth

    My husband lets me buy all the material I hide!

    and one of my favorites!

    Not exactly a saying, but a very old fashioned thought my grandmother used to tell me. She would say.... "you should NEVER sew on the Sabbath or you will have to pick out all of the stitches with your nose when you go to heaven." I spent a lot of time as a child trying to figure out how that could be accomplished. Perhaps that's why I like hand stitching to this day...lol...

    Somehow I believe you on that one, because the girl that cuts my fabric told me that since we both were married that a "friends with benefits" thing would be perfect for us. :shock:

    That one ranks up there with the time when my wife and I were dating, the waitress sat down beside me and took our order and when she dropped off the check there was a napkin with her phone number on it.

    zowie, Billy! What kind of aftershave do you wear?:wink:

    My sewing machine is smarter than your honor student.
    Always trust a quilter. She knows her way around the block.
    I only quilt on days that end in ‘Y’ .
    How can you say I’m fabric obsessed when I still have space in my closet?
    Addicted to fabric and proud of it.
    Take life one square at a time.
    I didn’t lose my marbles. I traded them for fat quarters.
    Those aren’t thread bits. They’re debris from a creative explosion!
    These are all wonderful, but the "My sewing machine is smarter than your honor student," made me laugh out loud, literally! I'm still chuckling and I wonder how I can get a bumper sticker made up with that saying. Too funny!!! :lol:
    I love the, "how can you say I'm fabric obsessed when I still have space in my closet?"...I can kinda relate...but there's no room in my closet:oops:
    So, if I build a new closet.... :mrgreen:
