Default You Might Be A Quilter If You..........

Find needles in the arm of the couch
Know that ripitripitripit isn't the sound of a frog
Find fabric scraps in the fridge
See patterns in the floor tiles


Please add to the list!!

If you look at the landscape and think about colors that would go into a quilt.

I can't add but I do find needles in strange places and have lots of pictures of floor tiles for future quilts.

Really? Fabric scraps in the fridge? That's a new one for me. I've found my car keys in the freezer, but so far no fabric. I think I'll go look.

Your kids know the best way to "freak you out" is to tell you they have been cutting plastic with your Gingher scissors...YIKES!...
You are on a first name basis with all the local quilt shops...
You consider getting a job at a quilt shop in order to pay for your "fabric habit"...

if your friends used to constantly pull threads and tiny bits of fabric off the back of your sweater, but have long ago given up trying to make you look presentable. Instead, they spot a stowaway thread and ask how the quilting session went.

Love that last one about threads on your clothes. I have that all the time. LOL and yes dunster I quite often have scraps travel on me and fall off in the fridge when I lean over I guess. I do find them there once in awhile. or in the car or on the floor in the bathroom LOL

If everything you look at you try to make into a quilt pattern. You look for quilting books on the "Best Sellers" list.

When your furbaby looks like your thread catcher, doesn't know it and thinks you're just giving him a lot more attention picking the threads off of him.

When even though you have seen thousand photos of quilts on Pinterest.... you can always look at a few more.
