    I had to go for an MRI last Friday and was laying in the machine and when I looked up there were 4 screw holes. I thought well since that made a square what pattern could be made out of it. I was picturing cuttiing that square into 4's and which pattern fabric I would use. I erased that in my mind and changed it into another block.
    Is that addiction or am I crazy? :roll:

    I found a cool FMQ pattern on a potato chip bag! I find myself always looking at patterns on things.

    Not crazy at all...just being creative. Besides, it's the only thing to do while having an MRI.

    Definately not crazy! Definately a quilter! Crazy? Well I think all quilters are a little bit crazy and we're addicted to our hobby we love! I think we all start seeing the quilting blocks everywhere we look. I all it a wise time management!

    I often think of patterns and fabric when I'm trying to fall asleep. It beats counting sheep!

    I like this story. I have quilting so bad on the brain that one day I was driving down the road in a new area looking for my sister's new place, I got so excited when I saw a sign in the distance that said, "Quilt Stop".

    I was aiming my car for it at that moment for a quick stop since "I had Time!" and realized it was a QUICK STOP.
    LOL

    YES Crafty! I do it too, on restroom floors, Doctor's offices and on carpet in areas I am waiting. I found a great pattern in a bank I went into a few months back that I had never been to before.

    (Of course it was to get money to go fabric shopping!)

    Think we all do this! I just taught a good friend to quilt & she was in her bathroom & took a picture of her bathroom tiles & sent to me & said "Look, this could be a quilt pattern" I laughed because I have done the same thing sooo many times!
