Spell Check for Quilters

I was super proud of my “Breakthrough” quilt because it marked the first time I was able to free-hand feather quilting in quilting the border of a quilt on a home machine!




I even machine embroidered the label on the hanging sleeve instead of making a separate label that I would have to spend extra time whipping it down by hand.  I was very pleased with myself!


Until…. a student in one of my classes asked me if I was going to quit quilting after my “Breakthrough” quilt.  I was quite puzzled, but you can see for yourself here what prompted the rather strange question:

quilt funny

We had a good laugh about that.  What a difference a letter makes!!!  Quilt and Quit!  Needless to say, I wasn’t feeling so smug after that little episode .  I actually thought of 1 Corinthians 10:12 “Wherefore, he that thinketh himself to stand, let him take heed lest he fall.”

At the same time, I was also wondering if they should include a spell checker program in those embroidery modules…. Meanwhile, I hope you will not quit, but you will keep quilting!

Thanks again for visiting!  I hope you have a super nice day!

  1. Oh my…I had to read that through again to see the Quit instead of guilt :0) Too funny. The Lord is good to us to let us know we aren’t in control of things, isn’t he? Have a great week WEndy!!

  2. You’ve done it once again! Phenomenal work!! I have yet to attempt to machine quilt my quilts and I’ve been using yours as the example. You’ll be a hard act to follow! Well done!
