    My husband said something to me the other day that got me thinking. He was making fun of me spending so much of my time on quilting. He said he thought it was something Grandma's do. lol He told me later that he actually wanted to tell me to find a hobby for my own age. I was kind of hurt at that comment.

    But, back to my question...how old are we all? I'm willing to bet I'm not the only 38 year old mother of 3 children under the age of 12, eh?

    I'm retired, but my 25 year old daughter loves to make quilts. She isn't married, though.

    I started quilting when I was 20. That was over 30 years ago. Other posts show pictures of teenagers and younger learning to quilt!

    I didn't start quilting until I was 35, but we still have quite a bit in common. How old are your kiddos?
