Post It Weekly #230 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories



The weather here in Louisiana is unreal. The temps this morning were colder than at my sister's house in Minot, ND. Quite irregular indeed. On Saturday (which is only two days away) we will be back in the 70s.


New Wave 49MTIIn fact the temps plummeted from perfect 70s and a beautiful sunshine afternoon to snow and ice arriving at midnight. We woke up to 14 degrees this morning. The wind was downright mean--cold, wet, hard. 

Luckily, we have a great heater in the camper, so we stay warm and toasty. We also have a TV, wifi, electronics, and the occasional ...

Inside: A creative quilt block from designer Sarah Ruiz.

2018 Featured Designers

I don’t know about you, but I’m more than ready for a new start. In everything. And I really mean everything! This year, staying calm in traffic, no more eating non-stop, and no bike crashes requiring a plastic surgeon for my lip. Yeah, that happened last year.

As promised, I’m starting 2018 with the first of my Designer spotlights! I’m excited to introduce you to Sarah Ruiz of Sarah Ruiz Quilts. I’m totally fascinated by Sarah, because she works for NASA! How cool is that?

How to Finish Your Insanely Awesome In My Neighborhood Quilt from Quilter Chic

Inside: Finish Instructions for your In My Neighborhood Quilt

I grew up in a fantastic neighborhood! I know I was lucky. There were about 35 kids in just our little block area, so there was always someone to play with. I’ve enjoyed thinking about some of the fun memories of that neighborhood this year.

I hope you’ve enjoyed In My Neighborhood! I loved each row the designers came up with.

To finish the quilt, arrange the rows in a pleasing manner. Here is my initial layout:

Honor Your Favorite Pets with Row 11 of In My Neighborhood from Quilter Chic

Inside: Row 11 of In My Neighborhood Quilt Along

We once had a cat named Ruthie. Poor little thing just had issues, that’s all. She really could have had an entire book written about her.

A few of her more memorable escapades include the time she got caught on the top of the garage door. (She was half in and half out.) The time she got stuck in the neighbors’ attic and we had to lure her back to the tiny hole she had found in the first place. The time we were putting down tile and had the ...

Hi Everyone,

It's that time of year when we all want to start new projects.  When the weather starts to turn I just want to stay home and quilt.  I can't do that but I hope you can.  

Okay, so I don't usually get Tula Pink.  Let's face it, most of you don't buy her fabrics.  But I could not resist these little otters.  The birds are pretty great too and should cut up really easily.  These are from her 'Spirit Animal' collection.  See it here on the website.

Adorable Row 9 of “In My Neighborhood” takes us Back to the Basics from Quilter Chic

Inside: Block 9 of our quilt-along features pencils.

We laughed and laughed at the idea of going to the pencil museum. We’d seen it advertised and thought it was a joke.

My husband and I were in northern England in the Lake District and thought it was the funniest thing that a little town called Keswick (pronounced kesik) had a pencil museum. When we arrived in Keswick, we said, “What the heck? Maybe we just as well go!”

This month’s row for In My Neighborhood is No. 2 Pencil by Jen Shaffer of Patterns By Jen. It is ...
