Question You know you are a quilter when you:

Take a foil gum wrapper and fold it to make a prairie point!
Look at cloud in the sky and think...I could quilt that!
Go to the grocery store still wearing your wrist pincushion.

What have you been doing that inspires you to think about quilting?

You take pictures with your phone of images that would make a good quilt pattern.
or
You simply cannot walk past fabric without looking!

When I sat in church and used to think someone's shirt or dress fabric would work real well in my planned quilt.

In 2014, my photos from a tour of the Cathedral in Sienna, Italy, were mostly geometric floor tiles. I think they would make a great medallion quilt.

You know you are a quilter when your husband reaches over in a fancy restaurant and pull a piece of thread out of your hair.🧵

During the movie Titanic, I was drafting out the "White Star" design from the floor patterns.

When I go to one of my doctors, I'm always looking at that carpeting there and thinking what a good quilt that design would make.

When my hubby gets a compliment on one of his masks and just shrugs and says "well, my wife is a quilter"...
