    Almost finished FMQ on this table topper, when I realized there was something very wrong. Yup, I had quilted a receipt to the back!!!! LOL

    This was a co-pay receipt so I carefully peeled it off, taped it back together, and submitted it for reimbursement!!!! We'll see if it gets accepted or not. ;)

    That is funny. I have a quilt that has a piece of something in it. I'm not sure what it is, but even after so many washings it still makes the crinkling sound. :)

    LOL. Long ago I sewed the skirt I was wearing into my quilt. It's finally funny, 20+ years later.
