I know I am far from it, but even farther from being the youngest.  I think we have several in their 80's.  Any one over 90?

The average age of a quilter is 62 so I don't think you are in the upper middle, Annie.  I'm 50...soon to be 51.  I have many years of quilting left in me!!

Jeanine,

Just think, if you quilt until you're 80...30 more years or so...and you do 300 quilts a year...let me get my shoes off so I can count that high...that's somewhere around another 9,000 quilts for you. Wow! I'm tired just thinking about that number!

Max

PS:  I'm over that 'average age' of a quilter number...by a ways.

I am in the younger half, I am 43 and look forward to quilting for at least another 40/45 years! Maybe by then I will be brave enough to machine quilt my tops!!!!

I guess I'm just average at 62.

I don't do 300 quilts a year alone. I have a group of ladies that help.  I do make a lot of quilts but not quite that many.  Maybe after I retire!

Debbie, seriously?  I would have guessed you were between 45-50.

Sorry, Jeanine!  I thought I had read somewhere you did about 300 quilts a year.  It's your group that does!  Thank goodness!  I was worried you'd work your fingers down to nubbins! 

Sorry about the confusion, Quilt Daddy!  Old-timers disease had kicked in!

I know of at least one member in her 80s.  And only because she shared with us her age at retreat. 

Me, a young 60.

And here I've been feeling old...

Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.

I feel so young now! I don't think I'm the youngest though. I'm 36.

I hate to tell you this, but I think this thread just might be being avoided...LOL! 

I'll admit to having a few years on you Patti, but I haven't hit the big " 7-0" yet! 

So, I am still in the 60's...sigh...average and mediocre in all things...even to the age of quilters...LOL.
