When is a quilt not a quilt?

My 10 year old daughter just loves riddles; what kid doesn't? I recently shared with her the old riddle, "When is a door not a door?" Answer: "When it's ajar." Ha, ha, ha... Quite clever if you're 10 years old!

So now I ask you, "When is a quilt not a quilt?" If you were to ask DD3 her answer would be, "When it's a cave."
A cave?! Yep, a cave! All you need is a quilt, a piano bench, and a couple of old towels.

Do you know how fun it is to hide inside your own private cave and reach out and grab the legs of unsuspecting passers-by? Or to read inside the darkness with a flashlight in hand? The possibilities are endless! We've been listening to a low growl come from within the cave walls for the past two days. Who knows what sort of creature lives inside!!!

This is the first Yellow Brick Road quilt that I ever made. Actually, I think it's the only one I've ever made. I sure like it in those Mary Engelbreit fabrics.

My kids get a kick out of the block that says "OLD MOM". I've tried to convince them that it actually says "GOOD OLD MOM", but they're not buying it!


  1. What a sweet looking quilt! What I like about the Yellow Brick Road pattern is being able to use fabric that you wouldn't know too! I call it my theme quilt! Thanks for sharing! Keep well and happy quilting!

  2. I think I'm become dyslexics as I age. That you read "you wouldn't know how too!" I need a grammar and spell check on this! lol

  3. I'm not a huge fan of the YBR, but that one turned out really cute. I agree with Carole! And I'm guessing it must be all those ME scotty dogs making that growling sound! LOL!
