The Silver Screen

Hey, Lilypadquilters! Are you like me, and watch a good many classic movies?  Are you ready for a chuckle?

I had a thought today about movie titles (somebody may have already done this, but I just was thinkin'), and how some of them match up with our lives as quilters . . .

The Agony and the Ecstasy

 It's not a movie about Michaelangelo . . .


It's the feeling you get when you are cutting up that treasured fat quarter bundle to make a new quilt!


The Red Badge of Courage

It's not a Stephen Crane novel, or even an Audie Murphy "two kleenex" movie . . .


It's the bandaid on your finger or thumb, whilst you hand-quilt!

From Here to Eternity . . .

It's not a romance with Burt Lancaster and Debra Kerr on the beach . . .


It's how far you have yet to go, sewing on that binding on that king-size quilt that was SUCH a good idea, when you first started it!


I wonder if any of you can think of some movie titles that have meaning for us quilters??

Love,
