For a long time after I started quilting, whenever a sales person would ask me what I was going to do with my fabric purchase I would say "I'm learning to quilt." It took me quite a while to say "I'm a quilter." Perhaps this is what your husband is feeling, although I agree with everyone else - you are a quilter!

Of course, you are a quilter. I take my special guy with me to shows and exhibits and HE takes the photos. He is beginning to look with quilters eyes.

Does he have a specific amount of quilts you have to make before you become a quilter? Do you have to spend a certain amount of $$ before you become a quilter? Do you have to own a certain amount of sewing machines before you become a quilter? Ask him how much money it is going to cost before he thinks you are a quilter. I bet that will shut him up. And after my first pieced quilt, I became a quilter. And, I have never quilted a quilt except hand quilted 3/4 of a wall hanging and I don't call myself a piecer. I'm a quilter because I make quilts. No rules say you have to quilt your own quilts. There are thousands of long arm quilters out there who make a living quilting other quilter's quilts.

The only way to get even with him is to get him "addicted" to quilting as well...

Well, no one becomes an instant {whatever] not even your husband, nor anyone else. If we don't keep learning, we become dead. We learn until we die. I'm 83 and still learning everwhere. I'm not being ugly to your husband. It's just a fact.
