It must be a sickness

This must be a sickness! This obsession to cut up perfectly good fabric into little pieces and sew them back together. First I cut strips, then I sewed them together, and then I cut them into these little units, then I decided that instead of 3 squares across they really needed to be 4 squares across (with each square finishing at 1"). See I told you, it is a sickness!

And to make it worse, I still have three more piles of these to sew. I don't think any mental health professional who is not a quilter can truly understand this obsession.
The good news is that there are pink blossoms on my Japanese maple! Spring is really going to show up after all in Austin, Texas! It is truly GLORIOUS today!
So, I guess I'll go sew some more of my 1" square units together, because the only way to truly satisfy the "beast" (my nickname for my obsession) is to make quilts!
Happy quilting!

I'm glad it's not just me!
I've been joining 2 inch squares, so I'm obviously not as badly affected as you! :D

Yes, you have a serious problem... :-)
you and me both!! Hey, I have a bag of half inch triangles that may be right up your alley! He he he!! It's rainy and gloomy today but at least it isn't SNOW!!!!

If its a sickness, then its catching and spreading fast. We are obsessed to buy fabric just to cut it up to make more fabric. Isn't wonderful!

I say it's not such a bad obsession to have. But I am seeing potential for a new area of counseling ;-) What are you planning for those one inch squares?
