10 Reasons To Quilt With A Friend.

This week has found my friend, Cilla, and me in my sewing room making the newest strip club quilt. It's a doozy. Just complicated enough to make you second guess every cut and stitch you make. That's why I have decided that when a quilt is in progress, you should always have a friend with you.



Here are my ten reasons for quilting with a friend:

1. A friend will stop you when you start tearing your hair out because you've missed that point for the umpteenth time.

2. A friend will say "Wow! That looks beautiful!" even when all you see are flaws.

3. A friend will not mind if you make lunch from the leftovers of last night's dinner.

4. A friend will read and reread the pattern with you until you are comfortable with it.

5. A friend will reread the pattern again, just to make sure.


6. A friend will tell you stories about her childhood pranks that will make you wonder how she survived in tact.

7. A friend will talk to your sewing machine when it acts up. And it will listen.

8. A friend will not mind listening to The Wailin' Jennys on Pandora Radio.

9. A friend will laugh at your corny jokes.

And finally,
10. A friend will fill your day with fun, laughter, encouragement, commiseration and make the time speed by. Really, what more could you ask for?
