    You know you've got it bad when ...

    You know you've got it bad when you are in the doctor's office, you glance at the floor, and immediately a quilt pattern pops in your mind! (Square in square) Have you had this happen to you?

    More often than not
    When you sleep under a quilt, you sleep under a blanket of love.

    I was in an elevator and the man in front of me had the neatest shirt on, I swear if I had scissors on me would have cut the back out for a quilt that came to my mind. (Does anyone know if they have sewing machines in jail)???

    I carry small pieces of graph paper with me so I can sketch my designs as they come to me.

    Bonnie Hunt of Quiltville often posts pictures on her blog of patterns that she sees while on her world travels. Interesting tiles and brick patterns out there. Take inspiration wherever you can get it.

    I think that is funny that quilters see the patterns people think are just decorations.

    Too funny! I work in a neurosurgery clinic. We go to another location on Wednesdays to see patients. They have new
    carpet in the hall way. Square in a square!!! (Ugly colors though! Obviously not picked out by a quilter!!!)

    Yes, I was on a cruise a couple of years ago - the tile pattern in the casino was beautiful - took photos of it - when it was closed - allergic to the smoke

    I feel sorry for people who don't look around them and find ideas and inspiration in their every day world. Try it. It helps keep the mind active.

    Yep - bathroom tiles, hotel hallways/lobbies, ancient mosaics... I think it is an illness. But a happy one.

    Cheers, K

    All the time. Floors, windows, carpets, you name it. I see quilt blocks in almost any decorative design. I'm going to reserve my room at the funny farm soon.

    While watching the movie "Dungeons and Dragons" tonight...there is a scene with the princess in a spectacular round meeting room....the floor design is fabulous. I had to stop the movie and take a second look and began trying to figure out how to make it into a quilt.
