    You Know you are a Quilter If........
    There's more Fabric in the House than Food
    "Fat Quarters" are not the heaviest part of your body
    Your ironing board is always set up but you never iron clothes
    You think of your job as an interruption of your quilting time
    You pet Fabric
    People are always picking threads off you
    You can measure a scant 1/4 by eye
    "Featherweight" Doesn't mean Boxer
    Your "UFO's" are not from outer space
    You clean up your sewing room & they think you are leaving

    you take a long, refreshing, hot shower and when your finished, there is nothing but pieces of quilting threads in the bottom from one end to the other. And that's all the time..

    blue, pink, multi, white, ivory..........

    .....you shop all the clothing departments in the store imagining the quilt you could make from all those shirts and sheets.

    I can just hear it over the PA system:

    "Ma'am, let go of the shirt, put the scissors down and step away!"

    Just wanted to add a couple more:

    your seat cover is covered in threads
    your vac cleaner is full of thread
    you imagine quilt blocks from the shirts on the men in your office
    you think raining days are a blessing so you get more quilting time in

    You know you're a quilter if your first response to hearing somebody's big news (engagement, pregnancy, etc) is to start planning out the quilt you'll make for them in your head.

    I read somewhere that a quilter had a pack of charm squares on her desk at work. It helped handle her stress by being able to "fondle" the fabric. I love it!

    I definitely am a quilter! Keeping a charm pack in my desk to "pet" to relieve stress sounds like an awesome idea!
