There is something deeply satisfying about taking one's time to work on a project that will honor the art and the maker, and last a lifetime. On the other hand, there is something to be said for finishing a quilt.

How did you learn to quilt? In my family, the women passed down needlecraft techniques like sewing, embroidery, knitting, and quilting.
