My Mom starting me on applique when I was eight and I was surrounded by quilts and quilt makers. I also learned to make my own clothes and knitted, crocheted, made glass windows, etc.. I am almost 83 and still absorbing all the ideas I can about quilting. I love taking online classes and challenges. Just started knitting again, too, and am about half finished with argyles for my husband.
