There was a recent post by a quilter who was looking for quilting jokes, but I couldn't remember any until I heard this at our last guild meeting:
A Quilter had asked her husband to help her pin-baste the quilt she was ready to machine quilt. After they had it spread out and layered, he was to begin at one end and she started at the other. After a substantial time, she noticed she was nearly done with her half, but he had just finished a short section. When she asked him about the delay, he replied, "Well, it would have gone a lot faster if I didn't have to straighten out all these bent safety pins!"
This morning I am pin-basting (all by myself) a table-runner to compete in a guild challenge to be finished by the next meeting. When I have it finished, I will show you. Amazingly I won the last challenge!
