I am 68 years old, I was wondering how many quilters started in their 60 years plus.

I started a year ago last January, I was 59 years, 10 months. Is that close enough to 60 for you?

After a lifetime of being a tomboy and wanting nothing to do with anything I considered domestic, I took up quilting about 5 years ago - I was about 58, which if you round up you come up with 60.

Oh and I am still amazing my family who say "I can't believe you like this"

Made one quilt in my 30s, then a few easy baby quilts, but didn't really start quilting until I retired at 55.
