So, my brother called me last night.
"Suzie, how hard is it to make a quilt?"
"Why? You planning on taking up quilting?"
"No, I was just thinking that I have a lot of old t-shirts from concerts and I can't wear them. I thought they would make a cool quilt."
"I can do that but I have one I need to make for Chad (son) first."
"OK, how soon can we start this? I'll help. Will it take more than a couple of hours?"
I think I will ask him to bring his shirts, let him help me cut them and iron on the interfacing and then see how much interest there is when I explain the rest of the process. I think that if it takes more than 2 hours for the the initial cutting and fusing he will quickly decide he doesn't want to help. And maybe, just maybe, he will gain a little respect for what I do!
