soooo true!!! QUILTERS RULE!!

I found this over at Stitchin and thought it would put a smile on the face of all the quilters out's pretty funny and really true!!

We've all heard the classic line that only a quilter would take
yards and yards of material, cut it into little pieces and then sew
them back together again. While this statement is true and a little
funny to think about, it doesn't even scratch the surface of the
things that only a quilter would do.

Only a Quilter would spend more hours sewing several hundreds of
buttons on a quilt to embellish it, but wouldn't take five minutes
to replace a button on a pair of pants.

Only a Quilter would give the gift of a wedding quilt two months
after the birth of the couple's second child.

Only a Quilter would put hundreds of dollars worth of fabric into
her fabric stash because she might find a use for it sometime, but
wouldn't replace a 50-cent needle on her sewing machine.

Only a Quilter would let three later-arriving patients go ahead of
her at the doctor's office because she is on the verge of completing
a block.

Only a Quilter would rush to finish a gift quilt. Not so it's done
in time for the recipient's birthday, but so it's done in time for
Show and Tell.

Only a Quilter would make a special quilt to give to her son, who
would then have to attend quilt shows just to see it.

Only a Quilter would use freezer paper in the production of
something to keep someone warm.

Only a Quilter has a welcome mat at the door to her home and
an "Enter at Your Own Risk" sign on the door of her sewing room.

Only a Quilter invites everyone to see her sewing room, then
says, "Don't look at the mess."

Only a Quilter says, "I really don't need another project," then
offers to make a quilt for a friend.

Only a Quilter will buy more than she'll ever need of one fabric for
her stash, but slightly less than is needed of another fabric to
complete a project.

Only a Quilter would give a quilt book to the guild auction then bid
on it to get it back.

Only a Quilter would drive 40 miles in a hurricane to attend a quilt
show, but call out to have her dinner delivered because it is

Only a Quilter's family would put up with, understand and love a

Hi. You sure are a long way from home.

I've been reading back through your posts and looking at the beautiful quilts. My mom and sister used to quilt with a group of ladies from their church a long time ago.

Thanks for the visit and the sweet comment and come back anytime.

My favorite:

Only a quilter will complain about laundry 7 days a week, but have her newly purchased fat quarters in the washer before she sets her purse down.
