Baton Rouge Modern Quilt Guild -- What Fun! from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories


The BRMQG invited me to give a lecture at our meeting on Monday evening. I had a wonderful time. I haven't taught in such a long time and I've missed it. 



This class, though, was more about presenting than teaching. I did talk about my philosophy of improv and how I found my way into the modern movement. And I showed about 15 quilts. The whole thing lasted an hour and, happily, I had just enough "teaching material" to talk about and quilts to show. 



Of course, there was other business. Several of us had attended Quilt Con ...

Sunday Quilt Inspiration: Quilt Con (episode 4) from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Photos coming, but first a few personal notes from Quilt Con.


I happened upon Tula Pink of Pink Door Studios. She made it big with her Etsy shop and wild fabric lines. The huge vendor booth looked familiar (I passed by a couple of times) and I kept wondering what that familiarity was. Her fabric lines, of course! They are beautiful, colorful and happy. I take issue with some of the language that appears on her work, but maybe I'm just not that modern.

Baton Rouge MQG meeting from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories


Last Monday the Baton Rouge MQG met for our February gathering. We certainly do have some talented quilters in our group. This post is basically our Show and Share from that meeting.

made a quilt using the same pattern but in different colorways.

The maker of this quilt bought a pack of grandmother's fans and decided to set them in this black background, which sets the fans off beautifully.

Let's play catch up! from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Since I've not been able to blog the many goings-on in my life, I thought I'd just get it all in at one time. Or try to anyway.
Let's start with cute. Or ugly. Either way. A miniature horse newborn that looks like a donkey. Sweet little thing has no idea just how ugly she is. 

Momma and baby doing fine

Two days later and she looks
even more like a donkey.











I've managed a little sewing.
A couple of burp cloths for baby Ryder due in January
And a couple of ...

MQG entries ~~ photographed, entered, paid ~~ finished! from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

This is a quick post to update you on my entries for QuiltCon, which will be held in Nashville in February. I have every intention of going if possible. It's just nine hours of driving from here. (Said like nine hours of driving is typical.) But there's a ploy in play: Richard wants to go to the Ark Encounter, which is only three hours from Nashville. I'm thinking, let's do both!

Dropcloth


We'll see how that pans out. In the meantime, I'm hedging my bets by entering a few quilts into the show. Hopefully ...

Baton Rouge MQG - November from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

My second meeting of the BRMQG was most informative. These women are a special kind of inspirational. The business part of the meeting could be a company board meeting. The presentations are well in keeping with the theme and ideas of what modern quilts are. And the show and share is, well, see for yourself. Just don't ask who the quilters are. I haven't a clue. (I'll probably never learn their names since my "muddled" brain, Dr. Hargrave's term, struggled to remember names before the BD meds.)





One quilter-four quilts

One quilt-two gorgeous sides
And a ...
