When I was little I sat under my grandmother's guild quilt as they hand quilted it. She taught me how to quilt when I was 9. That was 50 years ago. As the ladies passed away the guild fabic was passed down to the next generation. I received the box a few years ago. I'm now using that fabic for my scrapy block of the month. After my second stroke I have had to reteach myself and now you are helping me. I've taught in the past and I have a small lap quilt that I designed before the stroke. Now I have to somehow put the pattern in writing. It's a great beginners quilt.
