Loved it. Very cute, very funny, but not a reread.

Open when receiving, especially if depressed. You won't put it down until you've read from cover to cover, laughing all the way! Anyone would want Lisa Boyer for a sister!

LOL! This was a fun read. A perfect book for passing along to your quilting buddies. No patterns or projects, just a lot of funny thoughts and stories all relating to quilting, quilters, and perfectionism (or lack thereof). It didn't take long to read and it totally made me rethink about perfectionism in quilting (and many other handcrafted projects for that matter). I totally appreciate Lisa Boyer's humor. Many good chuckles to be had reading this book.

If you're a quilter, you'll probably find at least a few of these essays hysterical. I lauged out loud at quite a few points in this book.

Hilarious sendup of quiltmaking and how serious we can sometimes take it. Hey it's only a quilt--lighten up!!

I got this book as a gift for my mom who is an avid quilter. I just had to give this a 5-star rating (despite no photos of 'overly' loved quilts) because of how much Mom enjoyed reading it. My dad told me that he'd have to come out of his home office to find out what she was making all the ruckus about. Turned out they both liked the book; well, Dad didn't read the book but, he did like the parts Mom made him listen to.

5-stars for a great gift and a great read

Enjoyed the author's sense of humor. Wish the book was longer.

very funny and encouraging of those wobbly first steps in quilting.
