    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.
