You know you are a quilter if:
There is more fabric in the house than food.
"Fat Quarters" are not the heaviest part of your body.
Your ironing board is always set up but you never iron clothes.
You "pet" your fabric.
People are always picking threads off of you.
You can measure 1/4" by eye.
You clean up your sewing room and they think you are leaving.
You have a "stash" and it isn't illegal.

Our Quilted Leaf Guild was organized September 14, 1991.
Thirteen joined then and thought it would be lots of fun.
New members were added - some leaving as years go by,
But each were ready to learn new projects and giving it a try.
"Show and Tell" is first at meetings and always a treat,
Seeing each one's creations cannot be beat.
Each year the Mystery Quilt adds to the fun
Not knowing the finished results until our project is done!
We enjoy 'all-day quilting' about once each year
To quilt something new - or just "catch up", I fear.
Then, of course, there's the yummy potluck at noon
And we find that the day usually ends too soon!
Occasionally a guest is invited to give a lesson,
At other meetings a member obliges - which is a blessing!
Through the years we've taken trips to Quilt Shows or shops,
Benkleman, Wray, Kearney - were among our "shop hops".
Several other times we even saw Eleanor Burns sister
Who talked and showed many quilts, and even brought her "mister"!
Lasting friendships have been made,
Skills and sewing tips have been acquired.
The talent seen by each member's work can be truly admired.
Quilting offers solitude and can relieve a person's tension,
We're grateful for the Guild, friends, years and projects too numerous to mention.
