Grow Your Blog
N.B. The give away in this post is now closed.
Thanks to all that have participated.
Welcome to my humble little blog. I am so excited to participate in the "Grow Your Blog" hosted by Vicki from Two Bags Full. Thank you so much Vicki.
My name is Chantal. I am a French Canadian girl, married and mother of three. I work full time for the government, in the Ministry of Education. I started to blog almost a year ago and, like most blogger, I had to reading many, many wonderful blogs before diving in. No regrets yet :)
I have been painting and crafting all my life. Out of necessity, I learned how to sew to make clothes for my boys. What to do with the remnants? Quilts! My mother, grandmother, and foster mother (an excellent seamstress) and foster grandmother were all quilters. When all these talented women were alive, I was a teenager and believe it or not, was not interested in learning. Boy, do I regret that arrogance of mine. So, I learned on my own.
My style is piecing and some hand sewing. I love traditional pattern but admire modern too. After ten years in quilt making, I still call myself a debutante. I don't push myself too much but now that I have a support group via this blog, things might change in 2015. I am slowly learning about Civil War quilts and fabric and I foresee some of those in a very near future.
Here's a sample of the quilts I have made.
I love 9 patch block in all its variations.
This is an on going project made with 1 1/4 inch hexagons. I call it the Quilt of the Century because I think it will take me that long to finish it lol.
Blooming Stars finished in 2014.
Inspired by an antique quilt spotted in a blog.
This is where I hand quilt the tops I make.
These are the ones I would like to work with :) They need a little bit of repair and a good cleaning before I can take them for a "ride".
