Quilt With Us

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!

PQ:  There are 140 members in our guild and most will participate in any "small quilt" challenge.  These are seriously competitive little old ladies, so winning is not a foregone conclusion!

Good one, Carol Ann!  I don't have any of those "bent" basting pins.  I think my little tin of basting pins was purchased long before I knew they made bent ones.  Sadly, mine haven't gotten much use lately. Glad yours are getting a workout.  We'll look forward to pictures!  

PS:  I've seen your quilts.  I'm not surprised at all that you won the last challenge. :)

I KNOW my DH wouldn't have a clue.

Peggy:  No, neither would mine, but quilters do.

That's so funny, but I don't think my DH would get it.
