The Quilter: Quilting with Malke

“Help! I’ve Fallen and Can’t Get Up” Quilt

Posted on: February 16, 2009

When I first saw the title of the challenge it brought to mind the story of the woman on a plane.  She flushed the toilet while still sitting down and needed the help of ground crew to get her out of the toilet.  Such an unlikely story…but the truth. I felt the need to translate it into fabric.  The name of the quilt is “Help! I’ve Fallen and Can’t Get Up”.  Obviously, she needs a “Helping Hand”.   🙂

I love this.

This is hysterical!!!
This was a challenge quilt? The challenge theme was the title or a piece of fabric?

I had a good laugh here, – thanks for sharing 🙂

The challenge was to use the two red fabrics. The theme was “Helping Hands” because the fat quarters were hand stamped by women in Africa and this was a fund-raising project. If you are a QuiltShow member, you can see more challenge quilts online at

I was looking for an image for a piece I am writing about what a klutz I am and I came across this. OMG! I love this so much. This is seriously the funniest thing I have seen in a long time! You are an absolute genius.

BTW if I flew on planes more that woman would have been me. I would do that. If you are at all interested I would love to feature this piece on my blog and link it to you. You have my email. If not just know that is an absolute masterpiece!
