    this out of Ami Simms' July newsletter, so all copyrights and etc. go to her.

    IQ Test

    How stupid is THAT? My husband took the IQ test on Fox television last month and of course scored above average. (That, he is.) Well, I tried to take it and flunked. I couldn't even find the right link on-line. And then I got thinking that it probably didn't have any quilting questions, so why bother. And then I thought we ought to write a quilter's IQ test. So here are a few sample questions.

    1. If you have 5/8 of a yard and your best friend gives you 2/3 of a yard, how much will you have?
    a. More than you started with.
    b. Not enough for your backing.
    c. A really nice friend.
    d. All of the above.

    2. Which weighs more, 1/8 of a yard or a Fat Quarter?
    a. This is a trick question and I don't do those.
    b. They weigh the same.
    c. I pick letter "b."
    d. Me too.

    3. If a quilter used to get 4 stitches to the inch and now gets 18 she is:
    a. Much improved.
    b. Lying
    c. Counting stitches on both top and bottom.
    d. Playing around with the stitching length knob on her machine

    4. If your stash takes up 100 cubic feet and your friend's takes up 200 cubic feet, then:
    a. It is time to buy more fabric.
    b. Be sure to stay friends.
    c. You still probably can't find enough for the whole back of that quilt, so see letter "a."
    d. All of the above.

    I think if your stash only measures 200 cubic feet, you are:

    a) hiding the rest of your stash at a friend's house
    b) just beginning as a quilter
    c) giving the amount that you tell your DH
    d) all of the above.

    I like the quiz
