What makes a quilter a quilter? Certainly, we are unique individuals with our own creative impulses and drives, but we do have so much in common—including a sense of humor.
We asked around at the office and on our Facebook page, and came up with a list of signs that fabric art is in every fiber of your being (Facebook fans credited in parentheses).

Go ahead—pet them. We get it.
So step away from the sewing machine, put the needle and thread down, and see how many of these “signs” apply to you!
15 Signs You’re a Quilter
