    It's crazy, I know, but I seem to dream about my next 2 - 3 quilting projects before I'm even a fourth of the way through my current & in process ones. My evening dreams are vivid and ohhh sooo colorful, I can hardly wait to collect the fabrics and begin the NEW quilting projects --- however --- I'M ALREADY WORKING ON AT LEAST THREE. :wink: Is this over the top??? Perhaps I need a little fabric therapy (going to the LQS & doing a little petting). Am I alone in this nocturnal obsession??

    I have dreamt about quilts as well, but usually the ones I am currently working on.

    I have not dreamt of a quilt as much of techneques being used! I read so much on sites that I am amazed at how these dreams come up! Making that or creating that, lol and I have never done them! :)

    I dream of quilts, either ones I am working on or new ones, and I also think them through when laying in bed. Counting patches instead of counting sheep, I guess!

    Not alone, and there is not a cure. I have one on the piecer, one on the frame, one ready to be cut, and just came back with the fabric for the one that's in my head. What's worse, I just seen the fabric for the one I didn't know I was thinking about.

    When I wake up at night, I think about my quilts. Beats counting sheep any time.

    Dream would not be the right word...that would mean I was actually sleeping!! No, I go to bed, and with everything dark and quiet, I close my eyes and start to imagine, plan, design, mentally open my stash drawers to find the right color, try to remember which magazine that certain pattern was in....oh ya, and I was at that web site today and they had a perfect fabric for the sashing....and on and on it goes, night after night, I need my sleep, but I can't stop myself!
