    I was in my 40's when we got our 1st quilting machine. Great looking 1st quilt.

    Ha, you whippersnapper! I started quilting when I was 64 last year. It is never too late to learn something new. Love the originality of the quilt. Great job!

    I didn't get serious about it until I retired. My MIL started in her 60's--nice thing about quilting, it is never "too late" to start. Your quilt is neat and you've done a good job. Thanks for sharing.
    God Bless,

    I love your quilt and think that you have a great future in quilting ahead of you. I have sewed since I was 12 yrs old, but never started quilting until I was 68 yrs old. My mother also sewed all her life, but she never quilted. I guess that's why I did not get introduced to it until I saw an ad in the daily newspaper of a quild advertising for new members. I took my daughter who also sews and we went. So glad that we did. I can't believe I missed out on all of this fun all these years.

    Well, you certainly found a wonderful board to hook up with. Your colors and exquisite, and your sewing seems really good. I'll bet you tend to perfectionism.

    Anyway, wonderful, wonderful job. It is difficult to fathom that this is your first sewing experience. I'm so glad it was positive!
