The closest I've come to quilting was making placemats along with my friend, Barb. We would buy fabric that was already quilted, cut out the oval shape of the placemat and sew bias binding around it. They turned out nicely, too, and I kind of enjoyed myself. But, that's not really quilting.
I've bought quilting magazines and poured over them. I've admired the quilt top that my daughter made as a young teen, as well as a pillow that she made. Both are beautiful. I've watched many quilting shows on TV, usually knitting while watching.
A couple of weeks ago I watched Georgia Bonesteel's Lap Quilting show #1107. I enjoyed it as much for the locale as the quilting. She was visiting Offenburg, Germany which is only 15 kilometers from Lahr, where I spent 8 years. The shop is Gerhard Humpert Sewing/Quilting Shop at Zahringerstraße 21a.
