how to quilt. The senior center that I take art classes at also offers a quilt class. I joined in September and I started my first quilt. This class teaches everything by hand, no sewing machine. I decided to make it in red of course and aqua (my new favorite colors). The first one you make is a a sampler quilt so this is mine. By thanksgiving I had it ready to sandwich together. It is now on my quilting frame and I am quilting it all by hand. Wish me luck!
