My name is Michael or Mike. My first quilt was over 8 years ago, and I have made 4 to date. I made the first one and thought that maybe I should look at a few books on the subject and picked out a sampler quilt as a project. I went thru the book and picked out the patterns I liked. Not knowing that the patterns were for the advanced quilter after I had finished it.
I have my Grandmother's Star quilt she made in 1922, and it is in bad shape. I wanted to make a copy for myself and kids to have. So I took a class on the star pattern quilt. On the 2nd class meeting I brought in my sampler to show the teacher, and she said to me, " Why are you taking my class, you don't need it"
