Yeah, that wasn't a typo!

So I'm super happy and excited to share Megan's first book of quilting humor: Quilting Isn't Funny.
This hilarious book is comprised of Megan's many humor columns from Quilter's Home Magazine, from Generation Q, and from The Bitchy Stitcher blog, and also two never-before-seen pieces. Megan has smartly self published this masterpiece and is offering the book directly from her website in both physical book and PDF formats.
Simply put: this book is hilarious! If you're looking for a diversion from the insanity of the holidays, and an excuse to kick back on the couch and giggle until your sides hurt, this is most certainly the book for you!
One of my personal favorite parts from the book is the introduction where Megan walks you through the 17 steps to make a quilt, which sounded oddly similar to my experience making my first quilt, minus the lawsuit and knee replacement surgery.
And I nearly spat my tea out all over Josh when I read Oh, Mom - a reaction to the modern quilting movement through the conversation between a hypothetical mother and daughter, highlighting and lampooning the absurdity of how serious some quilters of any given "movement" take themselves.
Again: this hits my humor buttons like crazy, but to many quilters...shall we say of a stuffier variety... don't find this so funny.
Which is why Megan titled the book Quilting Isn't Funny!
Many super stuffy quilters have written to magazines after her articles have been published demanding a subscription cancellation simply for being slightly offended by Megan's humor. My response? Lighten up!
We need a little more humor, and a little less perfection, and certainly a heavy dose of realism when it comes to this craft we all love. So if you're in the mood for a laugh, and this sounds right up your alley, definitely click here to pick up a copy of Quilting Isn't Funny today.
