Book giveaway: Quilting Isn’t Funny


As a participant in the Quilting Isn’t Funny Blog Tour I’m hosting a giveaway. A lucky Craft Gossip reader will receive a copy of Megan Dougherty’s new book, Quilting Isn’t Funny. My day on the tour is December 5th (today). You can read my review of the book right here.

How to enter. Leave a comment on this post telling me the funniest thing that has ever happened to you in relation to quilting. If you don’t quilt, then you have to go read my review and tell me something you learned, like my two favorite chapters. Oh, and considering that not everyone has a sense of humor that matches Megan’s, please read the following exclusion.

If you have ever written a hateful email to Quilter’s Home (while it existed) and or GenQ (so glad it exists) over Megan’s humor column and/or canceled a subscription for it, you are hereby prohibited from entering this contest.

Contest ends December 10, 2013, at 8 AM CST. Good luck everyone!

    My godson’s wife probably didn’t think it was funny but once she told me she liked day lilies. So one day I thought I would surprise her with a lap quilt made of fabrics full of day lilies, or so I thought they were. It turns out they were large azaleas. It was funny for me but not for her I’m sure. She loves the quilt a lot and leaves it folded lengthwise on the edge of their bed everyday. Whenever I go through my quilt album and I see the photo of her quilt, I chuckle.

    Quilt retreats are always funny. We retreat at an old Air Force base (primitive). After an early shower down the hall, I tiptoed back to my room (clad only in my beach towel. When I grabbed the door knob and it fell to the floor with a clatter. I whispered to my roommate to open the door for me and she said, “Open it yourself” and the rest of the floor people told me to be quiet. AH, good times.
