I'm A Quilter!!

Jump in and sing the Anthem that American Patchwork & Quilting has started. I am a Quilter and Proud of it. What can you tell about yourself ? Make an 9x12" quilt that tells your story in fabric, then post a photo of your quilt and your smiling face. It is fun to see the difference between the Editors' quilts and their stories. Every quilt........ no matter how big or small .......does tell a story. Be sure and check out Lisa Schumacher's quilt. She pieced fabric together to form her own fabric. I am hoping to get mine posted ( that is if the middle child in me can decide what describes me as a quilter) Hope to see your quilt there also.
I think this is step 1 in the 12 step program.
Step 1 I am a quilter and proud of it.
Step 2 is you must confess it to all.
Step 3 take therapy for the addiction by sewing more and more
Step 4 go to as many shows and classes as needed to discusss the addiction
Step 5 store fabric in your freezer, under the beds, in the closets, anywhere necessary for quick retrival when you need a quick fix
Step 6 go get a job at a fabric company
Step 7 need I go on? Afterall I do not want to be cured of this addiction so I guess 6 steps will do instead of the normal 12.


  1. ahhhh yes, but how do some of us get a job at say that wonderful fabric company? i've got all the other steps down but that one!!! :)

  2. Hey Lissa!
    Welcome back, did you have a fun trip?!

  3. Lissa,
    Well said! I am a quilter! or at least I used to be before my shop but still love the whole journey, I just don't get to the finish part a lot, oh well! starting is fun too!!!
    Hope you had a great trip!

  4. Yeah, I could go for that fabric company job! I am a quilter too!

  5. *raising hand* quilter here!! I dont really want any step program, I am happy!! But that job..???LOL - well then I would get much sewn would I??

  6. I've had this on my list of things to do, but haven't quite gotten to it yet. Soon... Can't wait to see yours!

  7. Why would you want a cure for this addiction????

  8. Who wouldn't love a job at a fabric company called MODA!!! LOL!!! You lucky girl.

  9. Well, I will have to check that out. Many Thanks!

  10. Ohhhh, you can always tell a person that works for a fabric co. or store... by the size of her stash!!!! You need to check out my Dec. 1st post! If you can add to it... that would be great! I'm always looking for my reasons to add to the fabric stash!
    I used to work at a fabric store.... sigh... that's how mine got sooo big! And since I don't work at one anymore... old habits are hard to break!

  11. Sorry I forgot to add the blog site!
    You can always tell a quilter/sewer by the size of her fabric stash!
    Merry Christmas!
    And Merry Quilting too!

  12. When people ask if I do scrapbooking, I tell them a person can only have one or two expensive hobies, and quilting is I guess I qualify for the 12 step program! Those are so TRUE!

  13. this is so funny in a couple ways! I just today posted my blog saying, I'm a closet quilter! & My husband asks me constantly if there is a 12 step group for quilters. he finds me mentioning free piecing, and is convinced it means something else... basing perhaps? he just laughs at me. QA, Quilters anonymous.... that would be me... sign me up. I'll have to show him this. he will die laughing. thanks for sharing!
