    As an old dog learning new tricks I am just curious at what age you seasoned quilters started and how long have you been doing this?

    I started sewing between 6 & 7 and started quilting about 12 I think, hard to remember exactly that far back!

    May 1999 is when I attended a week long Elderhouse quilt class, so that means I was 63 years old.

    I started sewing (clothes) at age 13 or so, made by first tied quilt in HS. Didn't really start in earnest until I me my future DH. And the rest is history.

    I started about 15 years ago in high school - I started my daughter and one of her friends this summer on their 1st quilts at age 6.

    My grandma taught me to knit and sew when I was 6yrs old! I only took up quilting when my first grandchild came along in 1995! I was 53!! It all started with a Beatrix Potter cot panel!!! I have been addicted ever since!!

    I'm 56 now and started when I was 7,My mom taught me on a singer treadle 'English paper' piecing, She/I didn't know it was 'English' but that was what it was 8-) All so she taught me to make Doll dresses.
