Sunday Quilt Inspiration: Stacked Quilts from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

I have a board, titled "Stacked Quilts," which is I created for pinning the myriad ways that people have found to display and store their quilt collections. Trunks, chairs, armoires, cabinets, baskets, quilt hangers, ladders and many more. Here are a few interesting ones.

Sunday Quilt Inspiration: Chinese coins from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Antique: Coin #FreeShipping antique Folk Ancient Chinese Dynasty Bronze Wealth Tong He Yuan Bao Copper Money Coin BiA couple of years ago AHIQ held a challenge to make Chinese coin quilts. Ann and Kaja made some gorgeous quilts; in fact, Ann made several. Today I ran across a couple of familiar-looking quilts on Pinterest. You probably guessed it. Two of their quilts! I'm not certain that they should be on Pinterest, but there they were.

Chinese Coin, a Feng Shui suggestion for AbundanceDa Ding Tong Bao bronze 1 cash coin cast in 1188 AD during the Da Ding reign (1161-1189 AD) of Emperor Shi Zong 1161-1189 AD, of the Jin Dynasty, S-1085. The S-1086 variety has the Chinese character 'Shen' of the reverse top side of the coin.

Since I was searching for an inspiration for today, I got straight to it. Here are both of those and several more.

Pin It Weekly #244 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Today I discovered this quilt block that I really like. It doesn't look so difficult, and now that I've realized how much I like row quilts, I have been adding blocks to my "quilt, blocks" board.

Of course, I've run across a few more quilts to pin. I'm trying to get to that 8,000 mark, but it's slow going. Milly does not like to be ignored! So, I have to stay off of the computer. I tend to tune out everything around me, including Miss Priss.

This engagement ring, which has 103,900 saves on Pinterest, is officially the site's most popular. It has a rose gold band and was custom-designed by its owner, Sylvia BilloneI've had reason to think about wedding rings lately. A friend's daughter recently married. Someone else recently became engaged. We wonder why a particular couple has yet to make the big announcement. You know, the stuff of small towns: everyone's business is everyone's business. (I just thought of that little truism.)  Especially weddings and engagements and such.

Sunday Quilt Inspiration: TURQUOISE from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Image result for turquoise green
(Like my brain can differentiate this beautiful mess) 
Do you find it difficult distinguishing between those blue-green colors that we call turquoise, teal, and aqua? I do. It seems that every time I name a color in this family, my artist friend reminds me that it's actually something else. 

The problem is not being corrected, it's remembering which is which even after the many, many reminders. Kind of like recognizing a face but not being able to put a name to it. Guess what? Google knows the difference! Of course, right.

Not only did I find an explanation ...
