Hi, I have been quilting for about 4 years now. I started by using my son's old jeans and just cut blocks and sewed them together. My DH wanted one, and after making a few with the old jeans, I decided to use cotton fabric. I found a pattern online and followed the directions and had a blast. I was hooked. BUT I didn't know how to quilt the thing. I had been tying the jean ones. A friend invited me to the local guild and I am now a part of it.
