    I've mostly been a lurker here lately. Unfortunately, don't have all the time I'd like to compliment each quilt and block shown, but just want to let you all know, I'm thoroughly enjoying your beautiful quilts. The sharing of ideas and suggestions as well as quilt patterns and techniques is truly inspiring.

    For my personal endeavors, I lean towards the quick and easy quilts (D9P; Wickedly Easy; Warm Wishes). I find myself going to the fabric store and picking out fabric for "future" quilts. Rather than buying a piece of fabric because it appeals to me, I pick out (and buy :oops: ) all the fabrics for a particular quilt I want to make. I have collections for 3 Wicked quilts already set aside. Guess I'm addicted.

    Just wanted to say thanks and tell you how lovely your quilts are!

    Hi and welcome from SW Iowa. I started just like you. Just buying the fabric for the quilts I would be making. Then things began to change. I bought fabric just cause I liked it. Spent time at the fabric store just to touch fabric. Soon I knew I was addicted. Watch for the signs. Ha Ha Just kidding. Hi, I'm Patti and I am a quilter. (I have totes and shelved of fabric to prove it. Giggle)

    That's the beauty of it - it's ongoing, you need regular fabric fixes or it stops working!

    Hi and welcome. Also thanks! Wickedly Easy is a new one for me. I've learned about disappearing 9 patch here and also warm wishes. Now I've learned about Wickedly Easy. It is printing as I write this. I think this may be my next quilt. I'm always about 3 quilts ahead of myself. I'm definitely addicted.

    HI, Welcome from salem, New Hampshire.

    I also am fairly new and the beauty of all the quilts I have seen is awesome!!! I know I am addicted, I have so much material and love every piece of fabric!! Sometimes I walk in the room and just smile and touch my fabrics and tell them one day you will be a beautiful quilt. How is that for being a bit " batty"!!! I love all the information and wittiness of all who write on the quiltboard also. Thank you all!!!!!!

    Hi, I too just love all the info and websites that people furnish. I am curious about 2 of the patterns you mention since I make lots of charity quilts (20-25 laps) quilts per month. What are the Wickedly Easy and Warm Wishes patterns. I have the D9P one and use it often but have not heard of these other 2. Do you have a website reference for the patterns or are they in books? Really appreciate any easy patterns I can get my hands on to make my life easier. I am an avid appliquer and so I do my charity sewing on the machine by day and applique at night. Also belong to 2 guilds, 4 friendship groups and teach beginning quilting at church.

    Thanks for any help you can give me on these 2 patterns and if you have any other favorites that work up nice in lap quilts, I would appreciate the names of them also.

    I too am truly addicted. My husband says I have more fabric than Joanne's :lol: When my aunt passed away 2 years ago, my uncle called and wanted to know if I wanted some of her fabric. Of course I did. She was a fantastic quilter. I inherited 7 large tubs. One full of U.F.O. and one full of patterns and books. I bet I could make 15 quilts without buying anything. Oh and I just received 11 1930's replica fabric fat quarters.....too good to pass up. So as they say a quilter can never have to much fabric. But, I bet our S.O. say it all the time. :lol:
