You know you’re a quilter when…

  1. You have that debris from your creative explosions (thread) EVERYWHERE!
  2. You have quilting pins stuck in the sun visor of your car as well as safety pins.
  3. You 'see' quilts in flooring, ceiling tiles, clothing, a sunset, everywhere.
  4. You dream of a quilt to make and wake up to draw it out so you can work on it in the morning.
  5. You stop in every LQS you see
  6. You plan your vacations around where the best quilt show is
  7. You ask where the LQS are when you travel.
  8. You like to pet fabric even if you don't buy any.
  9. You wait for the fabric to talk to you before you buy it.
  10. You ask for an iron for Christmas .... and mean it.
  11. You know how much fabric you can buy for the price of a gallon of gas.
  12. You were never good at math in school, but now can calculate how much fabric it will take to make an entire quilt.

A Quilter’s Glossary – The Lighter Side

Here are some quilter's terms and the ligther side meaning. If you have some you would like me to add, just send me a comment with your terms and their 'lighter side' meanings. I will add to this list as time goes on. #1 is my favorite as this 'debris' gets all over my house. 1) Thread - "Debris from a creative explosion" 2) Fat Quarter - Don't let this one get you down. it is NOT a body part. It's a Good thing! - "Piece of fabric that is 18" x 21" or 22". 3) BOM -   This is nothing to be worried about ; "Block of the Month" 4) FART - It does have a pleasant meaning - "Fabric Aquisition Road Trip " Who is up for a Road Trip! ?

5) STASH - You won't get in trouble for having this one in your house --- " Special Treasures All Secretly Hidden" This is what we call all the fabric we have collected, stored,        hidden and hope to use one day.

6) WWIT - We think the quiet often in the middle of a project - :What was I thinking?"
