I want to learn to quilt as well. Both my grandmothers, and great grandmothers quilted. I have several of their quilts at home. My favorite is my baby blanket. It has embroidered kittens playing with balls of yarn. So precious.
My mother has been quilting for a year or two now, when she feels like it (arthritis). It was something she always wanted to do after retirement. While looking at books for her birthday I fell in love with many of the modern quilting patterns. I would love to try my hand at that.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??
