My mother taught me how to sew when I was young (9 or 10). She also taught me hand embroidery and I used to do a lot of crewel embroidery and cross stitch but, alas, arthritis has brought handwork to an end. I started quilting more than 20 years ago and fell in love with it. My grandmother was an accomplished quilter so I guess I got the "quilting gene" from her.
