    oh ... yes. that's among the most annoying of the quiltitus virus strains.

    you have quiltitus nofinishus

    then there are:
    quiltitus buytoomuchifus
    quiltitus neverstarticus
    - often brought on by quiltitus can'tmakeupmymindwhichprojecttopickifus ... leading invariably to quiltitus juststareatallthatfabricus

    none of those are as bad, however, as
    -quiltitus ranoutofthefabricbeforethequiltwasdoneicus
    -quiltitus can'tfindTHEoneremainingfabricIneedforthisprojecti fus

    the one that will nearly kill the average quilter?

    I understand there is NO cure. This virus can be found in many quilts shops or sewing groups.

    No cure yet, but 15 minutes per day of piecing or quilting can hold it in remission for about 24 hours!

    Boy is that true. I have a couple of quilts that I just can't get with it. I have one made with in 7 squares, looked EZ to start with, but it is the last 7 squares that will be my down fall.

    I love all phases of the quilting process. My problem is I tend to go faster and faster when I'm right at the finish line. This might not sound like a big problem...but my bindings really suffer. One was so bad that I waited awhile (about a week) and then I replaced the binding. The second time around it was so perfect! I guess I learn something from that and hold off finishing until I'm well rested. Or maybe make the binding the "beginning of the end". Did that make sense? lol

    If I would stay off this site I might get some quilting done, but I found myself on here for hours? What is wrong with this picture?

    you just need to rearrange your furniture.

    my computer and sewing machine are positioned within a short roll of each other. i can zip back and forth between the two.

    it drives the dog crazy. she no sooner settles into a spot than i'm rolling back to it. :lol:

    I'm afraid that it's a life long disease, no cure. I was infected as a child, my loving Grandmother infected me without knowing it. Poor thing, she never knew that it would never go away, that urge to fondle...fabrics and threads. The need to have more and more materials. The desperate need for "just one more color". I blame my Grandma for all of that.

    Hello, my name is xxxx and I freely admit to being a (sob) fabricahollic.

    Sounds like me with most housework. I start strong but finish weak. I do have a solution for that particular problem, though. I start where I finished the last time. If I can remember. If I don't leave it undone for so long that my husband does it...
