In 2001, I taught myself how to make quilts from a couple of books, and I was hooked! I started with a few pieced pillow cases and quickly jumped to a full-size quilt and I haven't looked back. Fast forward too many years to count, and now quilting is my "me" thing. My me time.
For a long time I felt like I was the only person I knew who quilted. Now, thanks to social media, I have a whole network of young(ish) quilters like myself.
