Is your life too fast paced and filled with too much screen time? Looking to slow down, get away from technology and appreciate the feel of thread and fabric in your hands? Learn how to quilt--how it was done before the invention of sewing machines! Create small, sweet hexagons stitched together to become practical coasters or a trivet for your table.
