A Quilting Day at Monique's House

"Fabricologist Resource Center"... Now does that sound more impressive than "fabric stash"?

Sew much fabric, sew little time.

Don't look glum, girls. Remember, "ask not what your fabric can do for you, but what you can do for your fabric."

We can start by reading the instructions...

...measuring what we have...

...cutting more...

...and stitching only to rip again.

"Quilting with friends will keep you in stitches." ...And all I have to prove it is a blurry photo. Too bad.

"Blessed are the children of piecemakers, for they shall inherit the quilts."

That baby of yours is going to be one blessed baby, Monique!

Crying over the prospect of more ripping?

Or could it be Monique's onion?

Oh, no! It couldn't be. I love onions.

"Hang on a moment, I'll get you a fork." Monique made us a delicious luncheon replete with soup, sandwiches, cheese, crackers, hummus, fruit, cookies... in short, everything - except forks. :)

"Friendship is sewn with love and measured by kindness."
