    (this is prompted by seeing a list for graphic designers. I think we can come up with some really funny stuff)

    1. When watching a movie, you pay more attention to the quilts in the scene than what the actors are saying.

    2. Meals are an interruption.

    3. When you see a nice shirt, skirt, or dress, you mentally go through your stash to see if you have a coordinating fabric and figure out what block the garment would look best in.

    ok... your turn!

    When I am out with family/friends and come to a dead stop and start digging for camera/cell/paper and pen to capture the image of something for a new quilt idea.

    When watching a movie, you ask someone to rewind and you get the eye roll...as they know it is a quilt you have caught a glance at LOL and want a second peek at....

    You lay in bed at midnight thinking about what you want to sew in the morning, instead of what you plan to make for breakfast.

    AND you wish quilters got credit in the movies like the actors do.

    You see quilt designs in the oddest places. Bathroom tiles and such.
    You dream about quilts.
