How to Make a Quilt in a Week

  IMG_5681

Step 1: Allow your children to run amok for a majority of the week. Cheerios are a nice safe option – they sweep up easily, and can be eaten just as easily from the floor as they can from the bag.

Exhibit A:

Step 2: Have a party! Call it a Quilting Bee, call it a Playdate…but whatever you do, don’t forget to hand a needle and thread to everyone who walks in the front door.

Step 3: Make sure your friends have plans for their own children if Running Amok doesn’t top their Fun List. Sprouting an insanely long lap and sewing around her twins seems to have worked for Wendy Girl.

Step 4: At the end of the week, let your children model the quilt for you and tell them Good job! After all, they did most of the work. Running amok is hard work!!

I love it! And can I say that my kids run amuck MOST of the time...and I don't even get a quilt made!

Ok, this just made me laugh. It was worth all the amokedness, though, for a day well spent with friends. =)
