Hi, and welcome to my blog.

Here are pictures of quilts I made for members of my family this past Christmas.   Looking back at all these pictures,  I realize how busy I was, quilting like there was no tomorrow!  And ALL of these quilts are made of scraps!  But it was worth it!   You will notice there are no pictures of my three children, Josee, Lyne and Philippe.... They did not receive a quilt for Xmas because they already have lots!    ... and it was just not their turn!  LOL

This is my 9-year-old (almost ten) granddaughter Roxane who likes to doodle hearts on paper in her spare time.   I thought this would be the perfect quilt for her.   I used the "quilt as you go" technique, and it is of my own design and it is twin size.

This is my 9-year-old grandson Samuel, with his double size quilt.   i had made him a twin size, puzzle themed quilt, but his parents upgraded him to a double bed in September, so I made him this star quilt instead.

My seven-year-old grandson (Roxane's brother) is proudly holding his fish themed quilt.   The applique pattern was taken from a colorig book and the rest of the design is mine.  He lives about 30 minutes from the beach and he loves the water, so it was just what he needed to keep warm in the winter:   a quilt to remind him of summer days to come.

Vincent , my other seven-year-old grandson and Samuel's brother is holding his Xmas gift which I call Stars in the Night.   He proudly put it on top of his bed and is using it as a bedspread.  I hung this quilt in a quilt show last spring and had many compliments on it.

Genevieve, my four-year-old granddaughter, is proudly holding up her first grown-up quilt:  Granddaughter's Garden.  She is the youngest of my five grandchildren, although we received good news this Xmas:  my son and his wife are expecting their first child next August.   My sixth!

The next three pictures are of the quilts I gave the grownups:   all scrappy and all twin size.   They are that size because i don't like to make lap size quilts.   I think grownups need a larger quilt to cuddle up in front of the TV.

My son-in-law Eric, Josee's husband with his scrappy plaid quilt.  It was made with a "quilt as you go" method.

My other son-in-law Frederic, who, according to my daughter Lyne, watches TV every night wrapped in his new scrappy plaid quilt!

And last but not least, my daughter-in-law Chantale, the future mother of number 6 grandchild.   Rumor has it that my son is not allowed to touch the quilt:   It is hers and hers alone!  LOL
