Family Quilts

Yvette wanted a different edge hence my first prairie point edge.

I used the scrap half square triangles to make th eborder and the plaid to add some color/interest.

This quilt was made from blocks  I got in a couple exchanges in my online group canadianquiltswappers and some I made to match. It is now owned by my niece who lives in Trinidad & Tobago

My post breast sugery therapy

This is my breast cancer therapy quilt. My sister visited for a month after i had my surgery and we appliqued the fans then. It now lives in St. Vincent & the Grenadines with her.
Suzanne's Quilt
While in Prince Edward island, I discovered this lovely factory outlet where I found the iris breast cancer line of excellent quality cotton. My sister wanted something different so I designed this for her. I was so pleased with the effect of the color combinations. So was she. This one also lives in St. Vincent & the Grenadines.

    • Thank you!
      I have to give credit to the members of the Canadian Quilt swappers and the Maple leaf quilting groups. I participated in their swaps even though I didn’t even know that my skill was so poor and didn’t understand tha importance of 100% cotton versus polycotton. I am ashamed of the first lot of blocks that I swapped and owe a few ladies abject appologies. They taught me a lot.
      I really enjoy trying different techniques and find that some experienced quilters are listening to me when I suggest a way to speed piece a pattern.My hope is to eventually teach, but in a small community like this I might not be able to .

    • I really enjoyed workin gon Nisha’s quilt. A lot of the blocks were made by my friends in my online group in Canadianquilt swappers, and since I needed more to complete the quilt, I had to make some to the same standard. Boy did I learn a lot doing that.

    • Hi
      I just received notification that you had made a comment. How about a couple pictures for my Journal. I started it after you, Gill Patsy and Yulu got quilts and don’t have pictures.
      I now make bunting bags for babies and they are well liked too. They open out into a quilt.
