Louisiana "Lou" Bendolph has been quilting since she was a little girl, and the active living senior enjoys sharing the tradition with her grandchildren, according to AARP.org.
Bendolph's work, which features creative takes on traditional patterns, has been shown at museums and traveling exhibits of the show Gee's Bend: The Architecture of the Quilt.
The news source reports that Bendolph's great-grandmother and mother were both renowned quilters who taught her the art of the craft.
Today, the retirement living senior focuses on her quilts and her grandchildren, whom she has helped raise and who inspire her quilting designs.
"I have a 13-year-old granddaughter who my daughter had when she was very young," Bendolph told the news provider. "I had raised her since she was a baby. I talked to her about being proud of who you are. It doesn't matter what color you are. You can do anything you want to do."
Some seniors who enjoy needlework may find it difficult to continue their hobby if they develop conditions such as arthritis, but the Mayo Clinic reports that active living seniors can take frequent breaks so that they don't overuse joints.
