    How many years have you been quilting and how many quilts, if you can remember have you made.

    I have been sewing all my life but quilting about 10 years...In the first two years I made about 17 quilts lol. I will have to go count because I have all of them, except maybe 7.

    Mom used to have us help her quilt when we were just tiny. I started sewing on a machine, embroidering, and painting at age 3, crocheting at 5. (much older sisters that thought they should teach their baby sister everything they were learning) But I've only really gotten into quilting in the past few years. I've only completed a few but I've got 30 some tops that I need to quilt.

    I have been quilting about 12 years. I have made (completed) probably over 100 quilts. I have a collection of unquilted tops as well as a nice collection of completed blocks that need to be made into tops.

    about 20 years and the larger quilts (lap to queen) tally about 29 or 30. One I sent out - one was a group quilt, and the others are all SIDed.

    I've been quilting for about 6 months! I've been sewing for several years though! I've made 7 quilts so far...most of them baby quilts.

    I've been quilting about 20 years and I think I've made 50 or 55 quilts, 6 of them with patchwork, all the others wholecloths.

    I've been quilting over 25 years, but was working full time and raising kids. Since I retired over 800 days ago, I have made over 60 quilts. Some I have sold, some for gifts, but mostly to charitable causes. I am Joan and I'm a quilter!

    I have sewn since 1966, but I have only been quilting a couple of years. Sewing garments was always fun, but quilting has become a passion!
