Prospects of marriage: after a quilt was completed at a quilting party, four unmarried girls would each take a corner of the new quilt and hold it so it sagged in the middle. A cat was put into the quilt, and then with a little jolting would run up to a corner and jump out. The girl holding that corner would be married within the year.
If the thread knotted during quilting, the woman [sic] used to say "Des gebt blendi buus oonich da deck." This means there will be many a kiss under this quilt.
