You Might Be Addicted to Quilting

Posted by Jen Lopez on Jun 9th 2021

I love my morning coffee, and I’ll be the first to admit, it’s very addictive. Then… I tried quilting. After just a few stiches, I knew I was hooked. But how can you tell if you are addicted to quilting? Let’s take a look:

  • If you have ever started more than one new quilting project before finishing your current project, you might be addicted to quilting.
  • If you have ever snuck off to your car during the workday to get in a little hand quilting, you might be addicted to quilting.
  • If you have no available closet space because all of your closets are full of quilting fabric and quilts in various stages of completion, you might be addicted to quilting.
  • If you are hiding quilting fabric in the trunk of your car right now, you might be addicted to quilting.
  • If you plan your vacations around hitting as many quilt shops as you can along the way, you might be addicted to quilting.
  • If your local quilt shop sends you a birthday card every year, you might be addicted to quilting.
  • If you ever faked being sick so you could stay home from work to quilt, you might be addicted to quilting.
  • If you cannot just sit and watch TV without some quilting in your lap, you might be addicted to quilting.
  • If you bring graph paper to work just so you can sketch out quilts during boring meetings, you might be addicted to quilting.
  • If you save old clothes just so you can cut them up into squares, you might the addicted to quilting. (You might also be brilliantly frugal, but that is a post for another day).
  • If you ever brought a quilting project with you while visiting relatives so you could avoid talking to them, you might be addicted to quilting.
  • If your sewing machine cost more than your car, you might be addicted to quilting.

How did you do? If you said “yes” to 5 or more of the above, you are probably addicted to quilting. Happily, there is no known cure, so pour another cup of coffee and get back to it!
