Martingale's Quirky Question

Thanks for stopping by for the weekly Quirky Question—where questions are just for fun, your answers are always welcome, and you could win an eBook for free!

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not quilt“He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not” from Folk-Art Favorites by Avis Shirer and Tammy Johnson. See a slideshow of quilts from the book below.


Perhaps you’re the kind of quilter who starts a project knowing exactly where it will end up when it’s completed. Or maybe you start a quilt with no final destination in mind. But let’s be honest—often, our works end up with someone other than ourselves! Here’s hoping you own a project that can help answer today’s question:

What’s the best thing you’ve ever stitched…for yourself?

Post your answer in the comments before noon (PST) on Monday, September 23, for your chance to win. The winning answer will be posted on Wednesday, September 25, along with the next question. (Knitters, crocheters, and other crafters, answer with your own medium in mind!)

Last week’s Quirky Question was, “If we walked into your home, what would be our first clue that you’re a quilter?” Here’s the winning comment, from Tamra:

“Probably all the threads that seem to follow me like little breadcrumbs always leading me back to my sewing room.”

Congratulations, Tamra—look for an email about your free eBook.
