    1. ... You're at a professional conference, listening to a lecture by the preminent expert in the field and all you can think of is that the fabric of her dress is JUST what you've been seeking to finish your quilt!

    2. ... You're walking to the next breakout session and looking at the carpet and wondering what that would look like as a OBW !!

    (Dang! Can't upload carpet photo from blackberry!!)

    when you "steal" your friend's child's crayons at the restraunt so that you can practice your quilting pattern on the paper tablecloth before the drinks come. Hey, when do you get to practice on paper that big?

    Mostly all of the above. I have a very small stash, mostly remnants from Hobby Lobby or Hancock's and some garage sale finds.

    when my family has to take me by the arm to guide me thru a hotel lobby while I snap pictures of the carpet. Or when they have to wait for me to 'just run back real quick and get a quick pictures of the wall in the elevator. I could QUILT that!' yes..you are one of a sisterhood! ...or is that 'quilter-hood'?

    You have enough fabric in your stash to make 15-20 quilts easily, and all you can think about is collecting more fabrics for the new design that just popped into your head!!

    When you can't wait to go visit your kids, but part of it is to visit the quilt shops where they live.
