My paternal grandma lived to be 100 years old and was sewing up until the very end of her life.
She had seven children who had numerous offspring and she made a quilt for everyone of them.
My daughter was a g-grandchild and was lucky enough to get a quilt too.
I've been collecting pictures of the quilts from all my cousins and hope to have a collection to share with the family once it's completed.
She used every kind of fabric imaginable - polyesters, knits - it didn't matter. She just loved to quilt....and she quilted everything by hand...didn't use the sewing machine.
