My friends have been quilting for about a year, and for the most part I've avoided it because I had no idea how to sew (and not a ton of extra time to try to learn). Well little by little, I became interested, and Mike got me a sewing machine for Christmas. For months it sat on the floor in my room and I didn't even know how to thread it. We had a mother-daughter sewing day a few weeks ago...where Madi and I made her a skirt with LOTS of help, but in doing that I at least got a rough idea about how to thread the machine. Today Madi spent some birthday money and a gift card on a quilt kit. I told her I'd try to help her at least get started tonight. We started cutting...and sewing...and ...by the end of the night we had a finished project!
