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!

And All That Jazz from 40 Fabulous Quick-Cut Quilts

At right: "And All That Jazz" from 40 Fabulous Quick-Cut Quilts by Evelyn Sloppy (eBook only). See more quilts from the book in the slideshow below.


We’ve all had our ups and downs when it comes to making quilts. Sometimes we get so focused on the “downs” that we forget how far we’ve come. Remember when you chose your first pattern, cut into your first fabric, and stitched your first block? Whether that was yesterday or waaay back in yesteryear, you’ve made progress! It’s time to focus on your successes in today’s quirky question:

What’s been your greatest quilting triumph ever?

Post your answer in the comments before noon (PST) on Monday, June 24, for your chance to win. The winning answer will be posted on Wednesday, June 26, along with the next question. (Knitters, crocheters, and other crafters, answer with your own medium in mind!)

Last week’s Quirky Question was, “What are you gosh-darn good at?” Here’s the winning comment:

“I am gosh darn good at combining my two passions–quilting and motorcycle riding. You will see neither a quilter nor a motorcyclist at a psychiatrist’s office; however, you will see a motorcycle parked in front of a quilt shop! Just wish we could make those saddlebags a little bigger.”

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