Would love to see some photos of the teddy bears. Sounds like you really gave your mom something fun to do which also made her productive. What a great story.

What a wonderful story.  My mom was 83, with eye issues and trigger finger which is why she quite making them.  She preferred a smaller block 6.5".  She used tissue paper as the foundation.

It's amazing how different the same pattern can look depending on the fabric choices

Yes! I have noticed that! I've realized that when I look at patterns, I'm inherently drawn to ones that have certain colors...and magazines show the same patterns over an over in different patterns, and some draw people more!

I have made 19 quilts, (72 x 88)  for family,  approximately 10 donations, and to date 30 teddy bears out of her blocks.

Holy cow, that is a lot of string blocks!  What a great story for her grands, great grands, and great great grands.

Not gonna lie, I would have gone in the store to see the 90 year old stripper even if I wasn't a quilter.

What a great story!  Very impressive that your mom kept so busy and productive in her later years.  I too would love to see photos of the teddy bears. I love to hear your stories and I'm so glad you found our forum,
