I have been organizing by colour or attempting too. They do look so nice, there may have been some fabric petting and dreaming of what these little beauties could grow up to be. But then this happened...

Maybe google can help? I found this article on Psychology Today and had a good chuckle with various comments. For example "Quilters can display many ‘habit-forming’ behaviors”. Well okay maybe that's true, but me with bad habits never.
“It can mean an obsession to....buying large/medium/small amounts of fabric in general with no earthly idea of what to do with it – otherwise known as stash building!” FQ's are small and I had no idea what I was going to make with them when I bought them, so that MIGHT be an indicator. “Both the turning towards and the intensity of commitment to quilts may be expressed through metaphors of addiction, illness or affliction". Hmm still not completely convinced that I DO have a problem.
"In reading the academic papers on quilting, I got the sense that the word ‘addiction’ was being used in a non-clinical sense and as a metaphor for justifying the amount of time that quilters engaged in their passion and pastime. There was little evidence of negative detriment although some quilters clearly feel they need to lie about or hide away aspects of their hobby". Ahh there you have it I DO NOT have an addiction! Nor am I hiding my stash it is in plain site. I feel better already. Now back to that happy dance.
I may have to hold off buying anymore of those little lovlies however until I reduce the amount I already have. My next google search may well be fat quarter friendly patterns.
Do you have a quilt or stash addiction or are you like me in total denial of it?
