    What a great story! Depending on the person that the quilt is going to, this could give rise to a whole new meaning of personalizing the quilt!

    I went to a wedding shower and my sister had given homemade jams and pickles etc for the prizes. I won a jar of pickles and when we looked at it, one of the pickles on the side had formed into a perfect replica of man parts. She never noticed it when she canned them.
    We won't eat the pickles because it is too fun having them on the shelf as a chuckle.

    I wonder, are they "at ease" or "at attention"?

I thought it was going pretty well until my daughter ( she's 21) pointed out that some of the meandering looked like anatomically correct male parts! OMG! I am currently tearing it out and tomorrow taking it to an experienced friend to finish (very kind of her) I need to think of an excuse... honestly
    meandering looked so easy. I believe I will start to practice on paper! Blushing....
    Okay I'm sorry about your x-rated meandering....but this is the funniest thing I've heard in awhile. Oh man I can just picture them. Thanks for sharing and the chuckle.

    I decided to take a break from grading essays on The Scarlet Letter when I came across this thread. Best thing I've read all day. Thanks for the laugh.

    OH my, I have been practicing at meandering and never really looked at the stitches to see what they formed. Maybe I should pay closer attention would hate to give that to someone who couldnt find the humor in it. After all I would have thought of it as completely accidental and histerical at the same time.

    Given the rest of this thread I'm not sure if this is meant as encouragement...or warning!

    What a hoot! I do know what you mean though, sometimes meandering/stippling takes on some weird shapes! I was working on a Grinch quilt last Christmas for son and his family and SO bored that I started FMQing their names in cursive--this was after practically falling asleep at the machine. Was so proud until I realized it woudl be upside down on the wall hanging! We just talked about it this year and I pointed that out--My son could see where I had meandered Merry Christmas--left them with something to think about!

    What a way to start the morning! Thanks for the laugh!

    I think there is future quilt/wallhanging for this daughter with a certain kind of meandering? What about a lap quilt?

    I'm the kind of girl that would be highly entertained if such a thing accidentally showed up in one of my quilts. I'd probably give it to my mother and see how long it would take her to notice it.
    me too although i may not be able to wait long enough for her to figure it out.

    This is TOO funny all be it at your expense. Sounds like something I would inadvertently do. Good luck!

    I just created a meander pattern as background fill for appliqué etc. to digitize for computer quilters like myself with Intelliquilter This was so funny! But I am going to go check my design for any "unusual" looking elements.
