    You know you are to cut 2 inch squares for a quilt and you, without thinking, automatically cut 2 and 1/2 inches.

    What do you do without thinking that makes you know you are a quilter?

    I look at a tile floor and think what a great quilt pattern that would make.

    Have to agree with Dakotamaid...

    The best one I have heard on this subject is.. looking at the pattern on floor linoleum and saying to yourself..Geez that would make a beautiful quilt block *L* Linda B.

    You get a birthday card and you see "applique patterns" in the picture on the front.

    I do this too! The bathroom floor at work is driving me crazy as I can see so many possibilities. :lol:

    You know your are a quilter when you look at the architecture of buildings and see quilt possibilities.

    When you are watching movies you spot the quilts right away on a bed and say to your husband, " That's a log cabin".

    You know you are a Quilter when:
    scraps look VERY interesting
    carpet and tile on floors has possibilities
    you stab yourself on the needle you left in your shirt
    you can spot another quilter by the rough pin-pricked finger on their hand
    never make mistakes...only create a LOT of design elements
    ...and most of all...
    you must get your Quilters fix each day by stopping in on this board, even if it is just to lurk!

    You know you are a quilter when...

    ...you rush back from the lady's room at the restaurant to sketch the pattern you saw on the tile floor because it would make an outstanding quilt pattern.

    ...you catch yourself just before you blurt out to the lady in front of you in line at the grocery store "Your skirt would make a great quilt!" (but really, it's a compliment, right?)

    ...you find yourself thinking that working is sure cutting into your quilting time.

    ...you go to sleep planning your next quilt.

    I passed a woman at the bank the other week, and she had on a very pretty blouse - the first thing that came to mind was "That would be pretty in a quilt". lol
