Hand-made runs in the family

Recently, ma tante L gave away some blankets that she had made. They are beautiful enough to be used as a decorative piece on their own! The Dionne Quiltuplets come from a long line of crafters, with previous generations working to quilt, weave, spin and knit to earn money, make things for the family and pass the time.

Today,  I’m happy to share some of our woven history!
