During one of my husband's weaker moments in trying to cope with my quilting addiction, he composed the following thoughts that are reminiscent of Murphy's Laws. Enjoy!
Any fabric cut to a specified length will be too short
Bobbin put in backwards will not enhance reverse stitching
Fingers do not make good pin cushions
Extra blocks should not indicate an inability to count
The final result of a quilt will always be what was planned
Never invite Rube Goldberg to your quilting group
Measurements are always in the least usable designations, ex: cubits, furlongs
My machine cannot find the ditch
My Pfaff parts arrived. Unfortunately, I have a Bernina
Asbestos does not make good batting
I recognize my fabric – I am a material witness
Working on a Rail Fence does not give you splinters
Quilter's husbands need support groups
Quilting insurance means having good coverage
Don’t drive and quilt at the same time (DWQ)
Ambidextrous quilters get done in half the time
"Many a true word is said in a jest."
We do try to keep each other in stitches.
