I long wished I knew how to quilt, but since I didn't know how to sew either, it seemed unlikely. But then Scott gave me a sewing machine for my 34th birthday, and I started taking adult beginning sewing classes at Fabric Depot in Summer 2001. I started the second class in the series that fall, and overheard a classmate talking about the beginning quilting class she had just finished. She said that if you could sew a straight line -- and I mostly sort of could -- you could quilt. I had just gotten married, and my brother's wedding in Brazil was coming up in November, and I thought a quilt would be the perfect gift if it came out semi-decent. It did, and it was, and that was the start of my love of quilting.
Here are photos of my completed projects:
