I DID..NOW I AM 68 NEXT TUESDAY.
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I made 1 quilt in my early 30's and did not enjoy the process. When I quit my job at the age of 60, my husband bought me a Bernina embroidery machine and I started my new life as a quilter! LOVE,LOVE it now.
I started at 61, though I have always been a seamstress, swore I would never make a quilt because I wasn't patient enough. Guess I was wrong. I'm 63 now and just finished my 28th quilt. (Don't know why I started counting them, but I did. :) )
I'M 72 AND HAVE SEWN MOST OF MY LIFE SINCE MY MOTHER WAS A BEAUTIFUL SEWER AND A 4-H LEADER. I JUST STARTED QUILTING IN ERNST LAST YEAR WHILE IN TEXAS. ENJOYING EVERY MINUTE OF IT. JUST FINISHING MY 3RD QUILT. MOST OF THE OTHERS ARE JUST TOPS. THIS ONE I'LL TIE LIKE A COMFORTER.Originally Posted by twixbar
I also started when I was 60. I've always sewed and always wanted to do a Wedding Ring and now that I'm retired I'm going to do it after I get the release of my trigger finger on my right hand this time. Yeah for the 60's group. Sue
Count me in I started when I was almost 64 years young.
