Hello, my fellow Americans!
I’ve been turning over an idea in my brain for a long time. Wouldn’t it be cool (read: incredible, amazing, v.v.v. good) if The First Lady made a quilt with Sasha and Malia? Wouldn’t that be amazing?? I’m betting there are a few quilts in The House already, but I’m betting they’re either stored deep in the archives or under glass, maybe on a wall in some guest room.
I think there should be a quilt in the White House. I mean, look at this family:
There needs to be a quilt on that couch, darn it! (And by the way, those girls get more and more beautiful every day, do they not?) I am hereby volunteering to travel to Washington, with my Baby Lock, if needed, and teach the family and any of the gal’s friends to make a quilt. Or maybe a group of us could go! How will this work? What should we do?
A petition. I think we should start with that. Until I figure out how to make an online petition, just let me know if you think this is a good idea. If the First Lady made a quilt, it would be good for her creative spirit. It would be learning a new skill, one rooted deeply in her/our American heritage. It would be amazing for the quilt industry, because a lot of media people would say, “Hey, that’s neat! Michelle Obama is making a quilt!” so there’s that. And it would be cool because I have a lot of respect for MO and she real pretty, too.
Thoughts, gentle readers? Petition? Do we make a quilt and send it as an extra incentive/attention-getting device?
