For a vast majority of people who DO NOT quilt when you say you are a quilter they get this look of either incomprehension or they have just made an adjustment about what kind of person you are...aren't quilters little 'ol ladies who sit around and make quilts and just give them away? Have you every had some ask you to make them a quilt and they do not have any comprehension of the time and money it takes to make a quilt. Like, "hey...can you make a quilt this week for a niece of mine who is having triplets?"
Each year I quilt I get a clearer picture of what makes me happy. I think 2011 is going to be my banner year because I know I was "Born to Quilt!"
