The samples in the quilt store are amazingly gorgeous.

The quilt patterns literally leap off the rack into your hands.

In a blink of an eye, you're paying for a pattern, tucking it under your arm and triumphantly departing the store...all the while caressing and admiring the quilts...

The fabric...

The quilting...

You are not alone.

We all do it.

We didn’t bother to look inside the envelope because the sample was so-o-o-o captivating!
