How many people can say they taught themselves how to quilt? ... See MoreSee Less

I took the initiative, decided I was going to start sewing, and went into it head first. I still can’t say I taught myself. I called people along the way to ask advice. I thank all those ladies for their guidance. My mama, my mother-in-law, my sister-in-law, a friend from church, my pastor’s wife, a neighbor down the street, The ladies at my local quilt store. Each one helped me with something different, and taught me a new step along the way.

I have sewed for years, 4 H and HS etc. I was told by a lady in Paducha at the Quilt Museum that if I could sew I could quilt. I started on small pieces, place mats and pot holders then moved up to bed runner and table toppers. My first quilt was a king size which I had quilted in a hoop!

Started looking at instructions online then went to a beginner class at JoAnn. Left there with the same knowledge I walked in with. Did much better on my own. I've taken workshops mostly to come home with a completed project. I've started garment sewing again, but piecing/quilting I find much more rewarding.

I am still learning, there are no local quilt shops for me to go to so I have learned pretty much on my own. When we had a quilt shop I took advantage of their Saturday samplers to learn different blocks. Everything else I have learned on my own and still learning.

My first quilt was paper pieced. A friend spent a couple of hours with me showing me how to do it. Everything else I’ve learned from books and videos and websites.

I bought a book, learned the basics and made a couple of baby quilts. Then I took a class where I learned different types of blocks (Excellent teacher!) Finally, I joined a Guild and it has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Learning never stops.

Nope, not me. I was taught by my sweet, patient home-ec teacher, Mrs. Svare. She motivated me to make 2 applique quilts back in 1976. We cut up old clothes for a butterfly and a Holly Hobby quilt, used sheets for the backing, and tied them off with yarn. I thought they were beautiful. 🙂

I'm self-taught. Learned from a book back in 1972 when I made a quilted pillow for history class.

I am self taught. Took few classes for fun and and took home a lot of knowledge. We learn from each quilt we make. More fun quilting with friends. 🤗

I did...it was in the early 80's that I made my first real quilt (did a couple earlier that were not really) and it was all made by with cardboard templates, cut out with scissors(prior to rotary cutter), pieced by hand blocks. No videos to watch at that time, no quilt shop....though I did get my fabrics at a yarn/needlework shop that had about 20 bolts of fabric.

Fell in love with sewing in home ec class in high school in the 60s. Didn't really start quilting until the late 90s. I learned a lot from magazines such as Quilters newsletter. I have never taken a class. A few years ago I took the plunge and bought a longarm. The internet, books, Facebook have been my go to for taking on this challenge.

I learned to sew with Grandma Gladys, then on my own... With the help of my sister I made my first quilt...

I did... first one was "quilted" by hanging it on the clothes line and "quilting" it with dental floss. (Thought it would be tougher than regular thread.). Nice big toe-catching stitches! LOL!!!!

My mom was an excellent seamstress (but not a quilter) and was too busy to teach me to sew. At 11 or 12 I made a quilt ......with poly cotton fabric, 5/8" seams, the most ridiculously non-matching seams, and tied with yarn instead of quilted. I got better, but wasn't satisfied with my results. It wasn't until I moved back to WI at age 30 that I took a class and learned about 1/4" seams and lots of other good quilty things. Eternally grateful to 'Tuohy' for that class!!!!

I made my first quilt in 1970 from embroidered penny squares bought at the five and dime in the small PA town where I was in college, and stitched in my dorm room. After I was married the next year we needed a warm blanket for the mattress on the floor in our little mobile home. It was backed with a sheet, quilted on the Kenmore my MIL bought for me,and recovered with new sheets when the cheap cotton embroidery squares wore out. It is a very heavy quilt that my kids always fought over. Eldest broke down and passed it on to her brother last year.

I can. Read tons of magazines and books and dove right in!

I did. 1988. I made a king-size rail fence with a yardstick and a scissors. Basted it on the floor and then needed back surgery. I’m more ergonomic today.

I have. Lots of reading books, patterns, magazines...

I did with alot of help from the quilt store they were so patient with me when I came in asking for help

I did. No lessons, followed instructions in books. Gotten much better over the years. YouTube videos are abundant and wonderful resource when visual cues are needed. I tried a few quilt groups, but never quite fit my schedule.

Me! Self taught in 2003 and this was my first quilt! Used extra pieces on the top and bottom to make it longer!

I took a class learned one block, went home and came back a week later with a whole quilt top.

I am self taught.

I did, but now I know how to do it right!

A Take the money and start over. I would build a big barn shed for hubby's stuff and add a Garage to my house and a room and pay off house.

I would have to say B I received my sewing machine as a gift from my son and I have spent years collecting charm packs and mini charm packs let alone all the fabric. I have too many sewing related items from swap friends too!!

I'd take the money and just start over! Buy a house with a huge sewing room !

Take the money! I love to sew, but there’s other thing I love to do, too!

Take the money. Would give my machine and fabric to my sister so I could get it back. 😃

a. TAKE THE MONEY!!! I could get more fabric!

A take the money as long as I can spend it on replacing with new machines and fabric!

If there are no restrictions on how the million can be spent. I would take the money and start over including a new computerized quilt machine and a new sewing machine and of course more fabric, pins, scissors, rulers you name I can replace it and start over!!

Take the money. I can buy new fabric & sewing supplies.

No brainer!! Take the money and buy what I need... including a new house with a huge sewing room!!

A. Then take the money and buy fabric as needed.

Take the money and shop again! Hehe!

A. Then go and find more.

Take the money and buy a new machine and fabric!!

Nope. Thought about a, but I've been doing this long enoughh that between gifts and memories and unique fabric and items, it isn't going to happen any more. Not fiscally or emotionally sound decision. 😉. I'm a hard "b"

A. Heck yes. Tastes and interests change and you are left with patterns you'll never make/projects you'll never finish/material you don't like anymore. Fresh start would be great.

A - I'm getting ready to move. It would be nice not to have to move all of this!!

Take it and buy all new sewing supplies!!

A. I’d invest that million and start buying all new stuff with the interest.

Take the money, and buy more. Do you realize how much fabric that would be! Lol!

Money isn't everything. I've got too many memories in the stuff I have gathered over the years.

Totally take the million. I'd even throw in all my flimsies and ufos and get a fresh start.

A. Take the money and start buying new again. 😁🤗😍

I would take the money.

Take the money. U can go shopping. 🤗
