Pin It Weekly #272 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

The Bonnet Carre' Spillway (photo from the US Army Corps of Engineers New Orleans District) haven't mentioned the rising waters in the Mississippi River. Of course, it's been all over the news recently because the Corp of Engineers has opened the Bonne Carre Spillway. 

This is important for several reasons, one is that it's the first time in history that the spillway was opened two years in a row. 

World’s Longest Bridge -Lake Pontchartrain Causeway in Southern Louisiana

All of this water is normally controlled to prevent the Mississippi River from spilling over its banks, flooding New Orleans and rerouting itself. Rain, floods, and melting snow many miles north of Louisiana tend to come pounding along in huge volumes. The ...

Pin It Weekly #271 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

 I was pinning "a few" ideas a couple of night's ago while Richard watched one of his westerns, and thought it a good idea to organize my "quilting inspiration ideas..." board. Why I thought that rabbit hole was a good one to step into, I don't remember. Nevertheless, I did clean up the clutter somewhat.

Now that Pinterest has an easy, fast way to build sections and move pins, the organizing is not so time-consuming. When you move 50 pins in a minute or so, you almost get instant gratification. 

So for now I have two boards: one ...

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 ...

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.

Don't you just love old maps? If you're answer is yes, then I have two suggestions for you today. Firstly, go to the AHIQ blog and see what others have done with the 2018 map challenge. It's  impressive. This link brings you straight to the wrap-up but you can navigate your way around from there.

Sunday Quilt Inspiration: MQG past from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

I'm getting so very excited at the prospect of attending QuiltCon in just over a month. I can't see enough modern quilts. Enjoy these moderns from previous QuiltCon exhibits and the people who make up the MQG.

Mountain Horizon Quilt Pattern

Most people take a quilt class to improve their skills and to spend time with friends. Both are excellent reasons to take a class, but there’s another, often-overlooked reason to take a class: you get to see how other quilters approach the design. And it’s not just the students in my classes who enjoy this—I do too!  Not long ago I taught Pick-Up Sticks, from The Quilter’s Practical Guide To Color  , at The Quilt Crossing in Boise, Idaho. The 8” x 8” finished-size blocks are cut and sewn im...

How is your pinning going? Apparently I've got lots of pin-friends. New followers welcome! Here are a few pins from my week. Pinterest is a good time filler when sitting in a doctor's office or standing in line.

These are watercolor sketches I painted of some desert cacti. I tried to use different shades of greens as well as bright pops of color. I have a plant stand in my kitchen with different succulents and cacti growing. I used them as my subject matter for this painting. <br/> <br/> cacti, cactus, succulent, succulents, desert, cactus painting, watercolor, watercolor painting, purple flower, orange flower, bright, modern, fun, pops of color, green, plants, plant love, cactus love, cacti love...

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


Oh my poor cacti. The little succulents that couldn't fill the pot. The ones I tried to save by putting into a terrarium and wrote about here. Those cacti.

Cacti and succulents are not heavy feeders but do benefit from light feeding during their growing period - usually the warmer months of the year...
They aren't doing well. I will likely have to start over in the spring if I ever want to see that pot spilling over like my inspiration from the International Peace Gardens. Thus, an ode to my pitiful cacti. (I can't show them to you. It's too pitiful.) Inspiration for cacti of a different description.
