I DO know what you mean, but speaking for myself, I don't ever want to stop! Quilting seems to be a "disease" but a good one. It has gotten me through some tough times by keeping me focused on the project at hand.Hugs, Karen
Completely, totally, unequivocally YES!
One intervention, please!!In stitches,Teresa :o)
Amen! It's been one of "those" days...and your squares actually look good to me!!! ;-)
I think you are preaching to the choir....that would be why I have so many UFO's I am compelled to start new projects because the patchwork is just so darn pretty. I have a friend that thinks I am nuts because I take beautiful fabrics and cut them into tiny pieces just to turn around and stitch them again. I told her I call it THERAPY!
Totally agree..specially as I have just looked at all the fabric I have for "one day"It's something about all the wonderful colours..and designs...mmmmm
Oh...I hear you...loud and clear!! ;o)Paulette
Amanda, are those batiks? They look FABULOUS! Quilting is both a sickness and an obcession. Have fun!
I am probably at the intervention stage myself...
I do know what you mean! Hey, are you working on your batik challenge already? Good for you! I love it.
Someone once mentioned to my husband that she thought I was very talented with all the patchwork I did, to which my husband (God bless him!) replied, "I call it possessed....." ;-)
Completely agree! I was just at an exhibit of antique quilts, marveling at some (AMAZING!) teeny tiny patchwork -- and then thinking the quilter was a bit nuts to take such tiny piecing on (by hand! no chain piecing! no rotary cutter!)
AAhhhh....ya!! But at least you aren't in denial!! LOL ;0)
I like to remind my husband, "it could be herion." And then my addiction doesn't seem so bad.
Hummm...compelling batiks and no measuring?? What happened to you at retreat? Tee-hee!
I just finished my 1st 9 patch blanket. Haven't mastered teh quilting part yet but I am already trying to start another 9 patch. It is really relaxing to me in a weird kind of way lol
Look on the bright side, at least its a productive addiction! I seem to have become a bit addicted to hand piecing, which is significantly less productive, but still fun :)
I know this kind of days. I just stay away from my sewingmachine and hope it´ll get better.
i completely understand.
Hahaha. "Hello, my name is CrazyMom and I'm a patchaholic."We're here for ya.;-)
I know what you mean...I wrote a post on my own addiction http://appliqueaddict.blogspot.com/2010/06/addiction-planning.html
All too well :)
Wow, look at those batiks and BLACK!! Looking good...
I've just started making blocks with no purpose ... such good therapy for a long day with the kiddos!
I do know what you mean. I love to talk about quilts, read about quilts, dream about quilts, and work on quilts.Oh maybe I DO need an intervention!
quilts quilts is always on my mind. I try and sew everyday. I have to send my sewing machine off to be repaired. It isn't even in the mail, yet and I already miss it. I think I need a small back up machine to tide me over till I get 'my precious back'. I love to read articles re: quilts and different quilting designs and enjoying reading blogs, your comments and your blogs. Keep up the amazing work, funs, and spirit. Bonnie
oooh! AMANDA!!!!! BATIKS!!!!interventions seem to be working for you! ;-) you rock!
I know it to be sheer genius....however, I also know that I REALLY need an intervention!!;p
so nice fabric,thank you for share
I think its all about the creative process. you start off with something small, and end up with something big, Patchwork in itself isnt hard to do, it just takes a long time
I just started quilting a few months ago and I'm an officially an ADDICT! I need to find my hubby one of those bumper stickers that says "Quilting Widower". ~hehe~ I love it! So happy to have found such a wonderful hobby!
