I sewed clothing from middle school on and saved all my scraps. Always wanted to make a quilt. When I met my DH, he was a "let's get it done" kind of person. I taught him how to cut pieces and use the machine. There was one stretch when I was sick in bed with mono and he came over to keep me company and worked on the quilt (before we got married).

I tried to figure out how to hand quilt by myself but not much luck. I took a one-hour lesson from Nancy Halpern and it all became clear. That was the sum total of my "quilt education". DH was good at math and making patterns, he did all the cutting and machine work, I did the designing and hand quilting.
