............when you get ready to go out to eat and your husband stops you at the door, and tells you to turn all the around while he picks threads off your clothes.

I know a quilter when I go into the fabric store and see what kind of thread the lady in front of me has purchased

Ha!!! This just happened to me today... I had thread all over my black sweater. I started on one of my projects as soon as i hit the floor at home, decided I had to go to the store for milk and bread. Looked down at myself getting into the car on the way home and realized I was totally covered in thread. LOL...Ha,ha,ha.

What do you do without thinking that makes you know you are a quilter?
You actually tell someone you love the print of their shirt or whatever, AND SAY it would look great in a quilt! Been there, done that! :lol: :roll: :lol:

You ignore the glazed look in your friends eyes while you discuss the latest greatest project because you know they LOVE hearing about yet another UFO.

I was in Wallmart the other day. One of the supervisors had on an overshirt made with a georgeous blue and white print.
She saw me looking at it and said "What?"
I said "Lookout! I am tempted to do a Fons and Porter cutout from the back of your shirt!"
Didn't she laugh!
She wasn't a quilter but had seen their ad on one of the quilters magazines they carry.

Have you noticed the beautiful quilt on the bed in some later episodes of "As Time Goes By"?
