I have always sewn. In 2000 I taught myself the correct way to make patchwork quilts. When sewing clothing etc it’s a half inch seam but quilters use quarter inch ones! So I had to unlearn some of the most basic sewing methods while learning fabulous new things too. It is a great destressor and does not have to be the traditional style of quilts either. One of my favourite way to design is using upholstery fabrics. It’s heavier for sure but I bought a Singer Heavy Duty Machine and now no issues.
