We often share stories about the “hows” in our lives: how did we meet our spouse? How did we get our job? How do we manage to keep our house so clean? But how often do you get asked about your creative passions? That query leads to this week’s question:

How did you become a quilter?

(Recently we asked you to create your own quirky questions, and reader Maureen came up with this one. Thanks for your question, Maureen!)

Post your answer in the comments before noon (PST) on Monday, May 27, for your chance to win. The winning answer will be posted on Wednesday, May 29, along with the next question. (Knitters, crocheters, and other crafters, answer with your own medium in mind!)

Last week’s Quirky Question was, “How would you describe one of your quilts in a haiku?” More than 100 of you wrote beautiful odes to your quilts! Here’s the winning haiku:

Houses in a row
Vintage blocks of calico
Prize-winning quilt show.

Last week’s winning comment was written by Robyn. Congratulations, Robyn—look for an email about your free eBook.
