    You pet your stash more than your pets...

    A birth announcement sends you into a torrent of fabric digging...

    When you see a quilt pattern on public floors; or in anything for that matter...

    Feel free to keep the list going :)

    When everytime you see a license plate that starts w/a "Q" you automatically think the person is a quilter and get all excited!

    you look at your co-worker, husband, friend's clothes and think that the fabric would look wonderful in a quilt.

    I look at my old fashioned metal percolator and
    think what a cute quilt pattern it would make.

    Yes! I have been known to BEG my husband to drive me to Manhattan (50 miles away) for me to pick up 1 item. It is the only time he has ever said, "I really think you need to go back into the store and get some more stuff". :)

    When you sit with friends at the county fair and realize that the colorful bulbs on the ride are really a set of flyin geese and a star.

    When really any major, or even not so major event warrants the creation of a quilt. ;)

    Oh, I've done this one......my first quilt top is so similar to that on the Today show background; actually, I'm looking at it now.

    When instead of empty nest cause your daughter moved out you get excited cause you now have a "sewing room" instead of your sewing stuff strewn accross the house.
