A fast, friendly, and 100% frivolous quilting quiz. Keep track of which answers you chose: a, b, or c. Tally your results and see what kind of quilter you are!

1. When I start a quilt, I:

a. Choose a pattern; audition fabrics from my color-sorted bins; oil, clean and change the needle in my machine; and begin.
b. Hit the quilt shop for a few new quilt books, add several new fabric cuts to my stash and begin.
c. Sew two scraps together and see where they lead me.

2. When I sew a quilt-block pattern, I:

a. Like to follow the pattern exactly.
b. Get better-looking blocks as I go.
c. What pattern?

3. Do you insist on accurate 1/4" seams?

a. Yes.
b. Yes...but close-enough works, too.
c. I insist on seams.

4. My hand appliqué features:

a. No-see-um stitches.
b. Some see-um stitches.
c. Chocolate stains.

5. When a quilt doesn't turn out like I thought it would, I:

a. Finish it, label it, and drop it off at Goodwill.
b. Send it to the UFO pile - maybe one of my grandkids will finish it someday.
c. Finish it, label it, and love it. It's another original design by me!

6. When I choose fabric for scrap quilts, I:

a. Use my handy mathematical formula to determine color, value, and pattern ratios.
b. Hit the quilt shop first - my scrap pile never looks scrappy enough.
c. Close my eyes and start digging.

7. My fabric is organized:

a. By size, color, pattern, value, hue, saturation and luminosity.
b. By scraps, precuts, and yardage - the latter pile is topped with what I just bought today.
c. I'm working on it.

8. To finish a quilt, I:

a. Machine quilt, bind, and label all of my quilts myself.
b. Write a check (but sometimes I sew on my own bindings)!
c. Use stitches, knots, buttons, bows, staples...I like to experiment.

Time to tally your results! County the number of a, b, and c answers you chose.

If you chose mostly "A" answers, you are: The Consummate Quilter

You know it all, you do it all, and you love it all. We salute (and envy) you.

If you chose mostly "B" answers, you are: The Casual Quilter

You love to quilt, you love to collect, and you love the broad strokes. Never mind the details.

If you chose mostly "C" answers, you are: The Carefree Quilter

You love to create. The finished product isn't the reward - the process is!!!

I LOVE that last statement....thinking is works well on this healthy journey as well.
