Quilter's Mart Personality Test
Thank you, as always, my friends, for your comments on last week’s post! I even got a comment from Nancy the Quilting Goddess... It would seem that I have guilted her into quilting that long-forgotten quilt top. Hooray! Thanks, Nancy. I can’t wait to see what you do with it. Maybe I’ll even share it with the readers when you’re done!
This week, I want to hear everyone’s Quilter’s Mart Personality Test results. In true Myers-Briggs style, I’m going to assign each characteristic a letter, and then you can share your code in the comments.

Category four will get a little bit of an extra twist - if you want to share the sub-category of DIY-er you are, you can add it to the end of your code.
Below are the letters to choose from. Feel free to revisit the posts if you’re not sure which category you fall into.
Fabric Hoarders vs. Fabric Minimalists (H vs. M)
Pattern Followers vs. Pattern Creators (F vs. C)
Quilting Outsourcer vs. Quilting DIY-er (O vs. D)
Long-Arm Quilters (LAQ)
Basic Machine Quilters (BMQ)
Free-Motion Quilters (FMQ)
Hand Quilters (HQ)
Some of the categories are hard to choose between, I’ll admit, because sometimes you’re one thing, sometimes you’re another. But if I look at my “quilting career” as a whole, I would say my code is HMCD-LAQ.
My specific Quilter’s Mart Personality Type is that of a creative free-spirit. That same free-spirit has gotten me fired from painting our house by my husband (he says I paint too haphazardly and it comes out looking uneven… pooh! What does he know?!). But most of the time, my unbridled imagination isn’t so much a recipe for trouble as it is a recipe for fun!

You don’t have to have my exact Quilter’s Mart Personality Type to have fun, though. That’s for sure! All of us approach this hobby (or shall I say passion) of ours differently, but you don’t end up a quilting-enthusiast if you’re not having a good time!
What’s your Quilter’s Mart Personality Type, and what do you think it says about you?
