(Fat-jack) a term created by Katie Zenk to be used in describing the game played by sewers at the Calico Hutch quilting retreats. Derived from the common game blackjack, fatjack is played wagering fat quarters in lieu of monetary betting as to not actually be considered a form of gambling....or deemed declarable on federal or state income taxes.
The dealers were hilarious and the odds were very, very, VERY much in the favor of the quilter...after all, what in the world would 3 young men do with a bunch of fat quarters???
I'm not done with retreat pictures yet! The best is yet to come :)
