Joanna Campbell is one of those persons that can attest to learning and keeping a family tradition growing. From an early age she learned the art of quilting from her grandmother who lived close by. She was happy to spend her free time with her grandma not only learning the history but also the joy that one could get out of quilting. Through quilting she was able to preserve a lot of memories and make quite a number of memorable quilts for her family and friends. She not only passed the skill off to her own children but created a text that would help others that had an interest in learning more about quilting. Quilting is much more than a hobby for her and the reader can get that through her various books on quilting. It is a passion that was fueled by an innocent curiosity and a doting grandmother.
