Quilting started to interest me at 16. I would watch for hours as my grandmother quilted in her favorite chair. Unfortunately, she passed away that same year and never got a chance to really show me how it was done.
Ever since she gave me the quilting bug, I studied existing quilts. I loved the artwork with fabric placement and the stitches were neat too.
Finally, when I was 21, I decided that I would learn how to quilt. I was able to find a decent book that walked me through making a quilt from start to finish. It's too bad that I can't find that book anymore.
I didn't have a sewing machine and wasn't sure I wanted one. I made a promise to myself though. I would make my first quilt every step of the way without one. At the end of the process, if I wanted a machine, I would save up...
