  16. The first quilts I made were 9-patch, tied affairs. Not really quite quilts at all, but they kept us warm when we were poor newlyweds(46 years ago) and one was a gift to my grandfather, which was returned to me after his death.
    In 2002 I helped our church women's group organize to make quilts for donation. I guess that's when I really began piecing tops AND quilting them.
    Thanks to you and Shabby Fabrics for offering the giveaway.

  17. Congratulations to Carol!!

    I started quilting.... well, I started sewing at age 9. My mom had a Singer 316G, which I use now, and we had a big laundry room in our house, and the sewing machine was always set up. We had a huge box of scrap fabric, old sheets, and old clothing (clean, just ripped up) and we could sew. I learned how to work the machine, fill bobbins, it was all very exciting. I started making clothes and blankets and quilts.
    Actually quilting BLOCK patterns, I did not start until about 1999, just fiddling around. Of course I always chose really hard ones. haha

  31. When I was in high school, my mother and I and some friends decided to make quilted pillows, after being inspired by a magazine article. We then started a quilting group of 12 women, where each person would select a quilt pattern and distribute the fabric pieces for one block to all the other members. Each month we got together with our blocks for that month and put together a quilt for each person. And it was all done by hand, even piecing! (not sure why!)

  49. I don't actually remember what inspired me to get into quilting. I have always admired finished quilts,from the time that I can remember. My first piece was a six square sampler, that sat unfinished for 20-plus years. I finally gave it to somebody 20 years later to quilt and bind for me. I am now piecing quilt tops. I have not actually quilted and finished a complete project.

  67. I actually got interested in quilts many years ago. My grandmother took me to her cousin's house to visit. Her aunt had tons of gorgeous quilts. I fell in love with themIthem. m a couple of quilts, but then life got busy with college, work, and children. There was just no time and honestly not much money either. So quilting was put to the side not to be picked up for about 25 years. I retired and made a few quilts for my family and it just became an addiction! Now I feel lost if I don't have a project to work on. Lol

  80. I'm not sure exactly what got me started in quilting. I had been sewing clothing since I was a teenager, when I got married my MIL was a quilter. But she did everything by hand, & I knew I couldn't deal with that!! And she indicated that it wasn't a real quilt if you used a machine!! But a few years later a friend of mine owned a cross-stitch shop, & she had a Quilt in a Day class, which I signed up for. Boy, did I realize I had a lot to learn!! But once I realized I could use a machine to make a quilt, & the quilt police wouldn't arrest me, I was hooked!!

  86. When I moved into my first (and only) apartment, I needed a full-size bedspread.

  88. I actually did a little quilting in high school although I didn't get 'hooked' at the time. My mom was a quilter, but that didn't get me going either. It was after my first child was born and a friend gifted me with a baby quilt that I realized it was something that intrigued me and then I was off and running!

  96. I started sewing my own clothes when I was 12 - then eventually sewed for my kids; I tried many other crafts and "found" quilting. I already had a lot of fabric and scraps - so it seemed like the perfect fit!

    ReplyDelete
  97. I love reading everyone's comments! I had always made my own clothes, but as a young teacher living alone (44 years ago), I needed a little more creativity in my life. I loved calico fabrics and loved shopping for them. No sewing machine, so my first Irish Chain was done by hand, and it took me years to quilt it. I've loved quilting ever since.

  109. It was my late mother-in-law who got me started. I had just gotten a new sewing machine that had a quilting surface attachment and I asked her about it, knowing that she quilted. She was my encouragement. She gave me all her quilting supplies shortly before she passed away.I wish she were still around to help me.

    ReplyDelete
  114. I had sewn since I was a kid. I had a job at a JC Penney store and one day we got in little magazine about quilting. I spent my spare time reading that magazine and looking at the picture of all the wonderful quilts. Until this, I had never heard of a quilt. I picked the quilt I wanted to make - a thousand pyramids - and six years later it was hand quilted and on the bed. I made a lot of other quilts in those six years too, mostly baby quilts that I machine quilted.

    ReplyDelete
  115. My grandmother taught me to sew as a teenager. My mother-in-law was an amazing quilter and helped me make my first quilt as a wedding gift for a friend. I’ll never perfect her hand stitching but I love to piece on the machine!

  123. I went with friends to a garden/quilt show to find shady garden plants. At house three I stopped looking at gardens and took quilt pics the remainder of the tour. When I got home I told my husband I was buying a sewing machine and I was going to make those quilts. I took a beginning quilting class at my local fabric store and at 70 years old I learned how to quilt. It is my passion and what I do nonstop for 9 months of the year.

  131. I started sewing clothing - part hobby part money saver - soon after I got married but was always frustrated because it seemed like about one out of four things never fit right. I started quilting because it was sewing that didn't have to "fit" to be useful. Little did I know...

  145. It was the late 70’s Or early 80’s. Cable and VCR’s were the new thing. When I found out that I could tape quilt shows while at work, I was trapped. It was Nancy, Shar, Georgia, and Eleanor filling my weekends with quilting bliss!

    ReplyDelete
  146. I had been a garment sewer for over 30 years. MIL was a quilter and jokingly suggested I try it. I didn't have time, I had too many other projects to finish. Then my local Bernina store needed one person to make a quilt class happen. I went and got hooked (one reason why I resisted for so long ;) ). The class was a "Log Cabin in a Day by Eleanor Burns." I gave the finished quilt to my sister for Christmas and have been off and quilting ever since. Log cabin is still my favorite go-to pattern.

  148. My mom would make our blankets when we were kids so they could save money, instead of buying the expensive licensed blankets. She would sew beach towels with whatever character and add borders and ribbons. I would sit at the kitchen table and jist watch her sew, eventually learning how to make them myself.

    Followed on Instagram!:)

  149. In 2012, during a difficult transition in my life I joined Craftsy's free Block of the Month to learn about quilting for something to fill the time. I fell in love with Quilting as my creative outlet and the Lord has used it as a therapeutic, healing activity in my life since then.

  156. I always wanted to quilt and years ago bought a book to learn. Unfortunately the author said you weren't really a quilter unless you sewed everything by hand. I started a quilt and quickly realized that was not for me. I did still want to make a quilt and when I retired I looked into it and realized how wrong the author was. I started reading blogs, doing BOM's and watching videos to learn quilting techniques and found how much I loved quilting now that there were tools that made everything faster. Also I did not have to sew them by hand unless I wanted to, which I don't.

  160. I have been sewing for decades, but seriously quilting for about 15 years. I have always loved patchwork, so I bought a new machine and got started and have been going strong every since.

  165. I learned to sew as a child. I remember contributing a single quilt block for a baby quilt. It wasn't until I had my own family that I really started making quilts though.

  168. I got acquainted with quilting with my Aunt when I was young. I would play around with her bright colored fabric. It wasn't until my children left home that I took my first quilt class and I was hooked into quilting ever since.

  171. I wanted to make a jeans quilt when we were first married (almost 15 yearsIyears ago!) and I had no clue how to quilt/finish it. So I took to the internet, discovered quilt blogs, and have not looked back since!

  174. My Grandma made each of her 11 grandchildren a quilt for their graduation. All of them hand pieced and hand quilted. I only wish I had her skills.
