OLFA Anniversary Quilt, Craft Fail Book + a Giveaway!

I wanted to send you a glimpse of the OLFA 35th Anniversary quilt, which I had the privilege of making a block for.

Andrea, the talented quilter who put it together, blogged about her experience. You can visit her post to see my block and read the funny story I wrote about it with my submission card!

If you recall, I made a block based on my husband’s interesting decision to use my rotary cutter for slicing into a frozen pizza. (No pizza cutter? Improvise!)

Well, wouldn’t you know it . . .

My husband’s devious ways are forever immortalized in a brand new book,
CraftFail: When Homemade Goes Horribly Wrong

by Heather Mann. And I received my copy in today’s mail!

The book is filled with all kinds of examples showing you what happens when crafts don’t go as planned. I think we can all relate to this, and I love the idea of a community of crafters willing to own up to their failures just as much as the successes. It’s real. Honest. Refreshing!


So, here’s to us! All of us. Do you have any craft fails (or those you’d
like to blame on your significant other) worth mentioning?

Leave me a comment with your biggest craft fail, and I’ll let my hubby pick his favorite. I’ll send one winner my extra copy of the CraftFail book!  

Winner will be chosen one week from the date of this post and entries open worldwide!

Congratulations to Ashley!
