Quilting in French

I am indebted to Francoise from Belgium for coming out of lurkdom to introduce herself, her new blog space AND for letting me know:
"To quilt" translates into "matelasser". But for the craft, we say "quilt' or "patchwork". And "quilter" for the verb. "Quilteuse" for the (usually old) lady who does it.
Francoise also writes that the quilting scene is fairly traditional in Belgium "apart from a few renegades". Watch out for those quilting revolutionaries!

This is actually about your earlier post - I see from your work that your Kiwiness keeps coming through in your quilts, no matter how much you think it's fading! Don't lose it! And lovely colours, by the way.
