  10. I learned how to use a sewing machine in Sept. '09, took a quilting class in Oct. '09 and have made 13 quilts so far with another 5 on the boards. Good to see that other guys are also quilting. It is also good to see that my choices towards fabrics (they tend to differ from a good number of the ladies' quilting choices that I hae seen)are more frequent amongst my male peers.
