    You know you think about quilting too much when .....

    .... your co-worker points to several files stacked on a cabinet and asks "why are these here?" and you reply "Those are fabrics that I need to scan then shred".

    Quizical look from co-worker followed by a chuckle.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    ...You wake up several times through the night trying to figure yardage, write down a quilt idea, or look at your stash to try to fit it into something that you saw in your dream.

    ...even the tile pattern in the bathroom at the mall gives you an idea for a quilt.

    When someone asks you to shorten a skirt or hem some pants, you bite your tongue and try to smile. Just because you have a sewing machine, doesn't mean you want to do anything except quilt.

    when you are sitting at a red light looking at the tag in front of you with the number 214 and you read it as 2 and 1/4. I started a thread just like this before seeing this one. Sorry for the duplicate!
