Sunday Quilt Inspiration: graphic lines from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

In just a few days many of us will be traveling to Nashville, TN, for QuiltCon, which begins on Thursday. I pray that you all have safe travels and that you enjoy the show. If you're planning to attend QuiltCon on Friday, let me know. (Leave a note here or email me at mary.marcotte@gmail.com.) I'd love to meet you, perhaps for lunch, and to have a chance to get to know you in person. It's almost always better, don't you think?

Nine-Patch gonfalon

Part 1 is *here*.  (The block above is a Nine Patch cross.)

stripes cross, long

All stripes can be cut cross or long.

Calico Puzzle three ways

The stripes in any one block can be cross, long, or a mixture – you have to figure out what you want.  I’m especially fond of the swirling effect you can get with a mixture of cross and long.  (The block is Calico Puzzle.)
