Quilting Tips For Beginners

I started quilting fifteen years ago when I left my job to raise my children. I knew I needed a hobby, and I had long admired my grandmother's collection of handmade quilts. I took a quilting class in the evening for a few months, and I've also picked up tips from experienced quilters I've met at quilting bees. I find quilting to be both relaxing and a useful activity that allows me to be creative.
