  1. I believe if someone is a member of a quilting guild or a NPO which makes quilts for others such as the military veterans, nursing homes, or poor children in other parts of the world, then quilting is a passion for such people! Child Actor LA

  2. Joining a quilting challenge can be a fantastic way to hone your skills, gain new techniques and have fun with others who share your passion for quilting. As with any challenge, the main goal is to encourage you to try new things and branch out from your normal routine.
