Pin It Weekly #268 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

I missed last week's PIW because I was volunteering at Beta convention. Now that it's over, and I've recovered, I'll help babysit grandies while we pass the crud around like we're playing hot potato. Ryder is in the hospital, Marley and Sophie both are running fevers, and Milly's little nose is raw from being cleaned so often.

Let's meet a couple of new followers, shall we? Maria das Dores Lima's boards are all titled in Portuguese. I translated them using Google 
so I could figure out the language. (I'll assume that ...

"Flower Pots" pieced by Gwen. Quilted by Judi Madsen, Green Firy Quilts The pattern was designed by Kim McLean, link to order pattern here.  I primarily utilized the freezer paper template technique that incorporates turning the fabric edge with starch applied to the seam allowances, then I machine-sewed the appliqué pieces down to the background.  Nearly all of the fabrics used for the appliqué were designed by Kaffe Fassett and Amy Butler.

Wow, I've posted about five years of weekly pins. Some of my own pin, some from followers, some from pinners who just happen to have great boards and ideas.

I have some interesting news--apparently there are a couple of people who visit my Pinterest board. Check it out--


284.8k monthly viewers

That's what Pinterest counts, anyway. Well, they don't count it in red, I did little color thingy. But the numbers are all Pinterest bean counters. (I don't think I can count that high. I'd look away for a second and forget what I was doing. Ha)

What are they looking at? Well, that's interesting, too. According to the activity button info, Sunday Quilt Inspiration is having a bigger effect than ...

Textile animals. I totally want one... OR can I make one? I doubt mine would even look like a dog. :):

Have some old silk ties? Wrap them around an egg, boil them for 15 minutes, and your Easter is complete.

The horizontal asymmetry brings ambivalence to the design, yet is balanced as it its placed in the very center of the space. The block type in both halves portraits the ideas and feelings of the person. I appreciate the contrast of cool and warm colors in order to reinforce the message.Here's something a little different. Cheryl Gushue has a board titled "Branding."It makes all kinds of sense, but it's the first time I've seen a board exclusively for branding purposes. Smart!

Jade ProsserI'm terribly sorry that I didn't post a Sunday Quilt Inspiration this week. I just wasn't feeling it, as my students used to say. Tell a teacher that about an essay!


Anyway, I owe ya an SQI, but Wednesday is when I generally post a PIW (Pin It Weekly) and since I've not been feeling too Pinteresty, I thought it might be time to highlight a few ideas from others. 

Let's start with Kim Hyatt, who must love some of my quilt pins, because she's the first follower to show up on my analytics ...

Bloggers You Follow Post 7 :: Write 31 Days from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories



Most bloggers have followers that they can write about. That's what we discussed in Post 4 (here). Yet, bloggers are also followers ...and we all have favorite blogs that we return to again and again. There are a couple of good posts right there on your sidebar. 

The reasoning behind the idea is pretty straight-forward: as a long-time reader, you have had the opportunity to get to know the blogger, having interacted with her blog, emailing her on occasion, and maybe even meeting her in person. Conventions and shows provide a wonderful opportunity to match a person to the ...

Let's continue the Write 31 Days challenge by talking about a great resource to tap for writing ideas: readers, followers, friends. Before you get on that "I can't take advantage of other people" kick, let's take a look at this option with open minds. 

As I often do, I'll ask that you put yourself on the other side of the pen. Consider this: if a blogger friend emailed and asked you for an interview to post on her blog, how would you respond? Would you tell your friend no? Most likely you'd be positive about ...

Pin It Weekly #214 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

How are things in your Pinterest? My little corner of Pinterest has a follower by the name of Blinking Cat who has many boards that you may well enjoy.  These few come from his/her tatting board, but there are boards for knitting, sewing, crafting, quilting, kids, blogging and, oh, so many more. It's just easier if you go there.
