    Hello from Arkansas

    Hello everyone. I am a 16 year old boy trying to learn how to quilt and do other things around the house. My grandma is getting older and she loves to quilt and do other craft things. It has always amazed me on what she can make out of random things. I would like to connect with her more. I love her. She is trying to to teach me but she thinks I thinks I am an equal level to her. It is hard. I am hoping the site helps me connect with her more and do some impressive quilts also.

    Thanks.

    Welcome from the California desert. Good to hear you are interested in both your grandmother and quilting. There is a lot to learn from both. Be patient, take your time and learn lots from her!

    Howdy and welcome, from Texas! What a dear grandson you are! There are lots of "impressive" quilt patterns, that are relatively easy. Just take your time and don't be afraid to ask questions.

    Welcome from Missouri. I think it is great that you enjoy spending time with your Grandma and are trying to learn everything that she wants to teach you. In the future you will embrace this time as some of the happiest times in your life. I'm a grandmother now and wish I would have had the opportunity to spend time with my grandma.

    Welcome from Arkansas, I have a Grandson who will be turning 14 in Nov. He had me to teach Him to knit and crochet. He even helped me give a class at school. I was so proud of Him. He made His teacher a pot holder and did a great job I might say. I have no Grand Daughters so I was glad He ask me to do this. You sound like a wonderful Grandson. Go ahead and learn, it is fun and I am sure your Grand Mother will be proud of anything you produce. I am sure She will help you out and you can always come here for answers. I am new too and just learning to quilt!! Good luck and happy quilting
    Life is SEW great!!!!!!

    Welcome to the QB from North Carolina. You're going to love it here What a sweetie to want to help your Gramma.....You will find all sorts of help / information / support on the QB....we are one GREAT, BIG family here. We love it when the younger generation wants to learn about quilting.... I'm currently teaching my 17 year old son.
    Happiness is a form of travel...not a destination.
