 "Ragtime Circle Quilt" by MontanaGramma & Kessley Newton

As we race down this highway of modern life, it is important to remember to preserve the traditions of the past for future generations.  Quilting is one of those art forms that need to be kept alive and what better way to ensure its continuation than to include a young person in the making of the quilt. When they are able to choose the pattern, fabric and do the actual sewing, a real sense of accomplishment is the result.  It may also lead to a desire to continue creating quilts; and thus the passion is passed from one generation to the next.  

Was there someone in your past that took the time to share their love of quilting with you? Was it a Grandparent, Aunt, or neighbor? What was the first quilt you worked on with this mentor?
