    ;-) Hi fellow quilters, I'm a quilting nut. After 40 yrs of sewing fashion outfits, I finally found out why people take a big piece of fabric and cut it into little pieces to make a big piece of fabric! And I can't stop, I think in Quilts .........I dream in quilts.........I sleep with quilt projects in my bed......... Is there a 12-step program for me?

    Hi from Alberta, Canada. I think we have all decided that we too are addicts but we don't want any programs or interventions to get in the way of our addictions. I know I certainly don't!

    Hi and welcome from sunny sw florida. If quilting is an addiction I don't want a 12 step program, lol.

    Your story sounds familiar and I admit to addiction as well.

    You will find lots of company here and prepare to be inspired.....


    (You know you are addicted when you use a public restroom, you are studying the tile floor looking for designs.....)

    We're not addicted because it's productive. I'm not sure what that makes us -OCD?

    Ah no need for a program to kick the habit. It is all fun and safe, a good habit. Welcome home to your quilt family.

    Hello and welcome from Virginia, you really did come to the right place. I thought this was the 12 step program...shop,buy, prepare, measure, cut, sew, rip out, sew again, etc..etc...

    No 12 step program for quilting addicts, and we don't want one. LOL You only need to live to be 100 to use up your stash? There's many of us that need to live MUCH longer to use up our stash and I'm one of them, probably need to live to at least 200. LOL

    In the Quilters' 12-step program, the first step is giving away your stash of fabric. As of today, exactly zero Quilters have managed to make it through that first step. [img]http://rcquilts.com/images/smiley+quilter.jpg[/img]

    A 12 step program for quilting addicts: (Please add to this if I can't come up with enough steps).
    1) Pick up a quilting magazine at the grocery while you are waiting for check-out.
    2) Inadvertently toss it into your shopping cart and pay for it.
    3) Sit down in the living room and glance through the magazine when there's nothing good on TV
    4) Ohh and Ahh over the beautiful quilts
    5) Fall asleep thinking about the comfort of a handmade quilt
    6) Hit the quilt fabric store nearest you
    7) Buy up every piece of fabric that catches your eye
    8) Keep searching for that perfect piece of trim
    9) Realize all the accessories you need and sneak them into the house when hubby isn't looking
    10) Start cutting blocks and trim
    11) Sew those blocks back together . . . and realize you need some guidance
    12) Join the Quilting Board and pick everyone's brain and marvel at their creativeness, and hope someday you can post something even half as good as the seasoned quilters.
