I went to a Stitching Show to buy supplies for cross stitch and met a quilt instructor who challenged me. I bought her book 'I told her quilting was too hard' she told me to buy a cheap machine and materials (just in case) and if I hadn't made a quilt in a year or couldn't figure it out she would teach me and give me my money back. I made 3 that year and never looked back. Thank you so much! Lynne Edwards I will never forget you!
