Help With The World's Largest Quilt

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie.  As many of you know, our mom is an avid quilter.  She recently made a very special quilt using scraps from quilts and bags she's made for friends and family over the years.  It turned out much bigger than she'd planned, hence the name "The World's Largest Quilt".  It's really not THAT big, but definitely is of a size that she didn't want to quilt it herself.  She sent it to the pros at Missouri Star Quilt Company.  It came back the other day, and Mom wanted to lay it out to get a look at the whole thing.

She re-vacuumed the living room, then spread the quilt out ...

"Oh, yeah, Mom.  Nice and roomy!"
"It's for us, right?!?"

Mom said she hasn't sewn the binding on it yet and just wanted to look at it - both front and back.  We were happy to accommodate her!

"Yeah, that's good, Ragnar!  Just give it a flip with your snooter!"
"Like this, Mags?"
"Um, you guys?!?  Would you please ... yeah, OK, never mind."

I mean, c'mon.  We wanted to check our new quilt out, too!

We helped her fold it up and carry it down to the Studio.  Or perhaps we played NASCAR up and down the stairs while she was going down ... something.  Mom decided instead of putting it on the floor down there to "audition" fabric for the binding, she'd just set it on her sewing table, so we could run and play.  "Run and play"?!  We'd been working hard!

"Our work here's done, Raggi!"
"That was exhausting, Mags!"

We were happy to help, but really.  We do need down time!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher


  1. That sure is a big quilt. You two did a great job helping your mom show it off.
