    A husband's take on quilting

    I'm not sure this is the correct place to post this, so I guessed. Admin will move it if necessary.

    I thought this is a cute essay.

    cute, very great writings
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    LMBO! Blankets PFFFFT! Finally got JJ to stop calling them blankets, but he still confuses afghans with quilts!

    I have always felt that quilting was very similar to fishing. Quilting, you have lots of toys/tools of the trade, cutters, rulers, etc...fishing same thing...lures, reels, creels, rods, lines, bate..etc. Quilting: you spend a lot of time quilting...hanging out in sewing space rather than cooking, cleaning, working...fishing: you spend a lot of time in fishing space rather than cooking, cleaning, working at any thing else. Quilting and fishing; you eat sleep and breath it, hanging with like minded folks, talking, bragging, sharing war stories. But most importantly while quilters could buy a blanket...fishers could buy a fish...

    Sharon, best ask permission from Alyce at Blossom Heart Quilts, says the one who didn't! I just sent Alyce an email hoping she'll say it's OK to post it here, otherwise this thread may have to be deleted. I don't understand all the copyright rules and such and it never crossed my mind to have to ask permission to share something. It's the Internet for heaven's sake!

    Absolutely loved it! I wonder what he thinks about the unusual phenomenon of cutting fabric into itty bitty pieces and then stitching it all together again? Lol!!!!
