Pin It Weekly #182 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

What have you been pinning recently? As always, I've added some quilts (or quilt tops) to my "heart, quilts" board

Freshly Pieced: Wavelength pattern can be paper pieced or use a traditional Kite template.:
You'd think that I'd get all the quilts on Pinterest on that board and be, like, here. They are all right here. But somehow I keep finding more. 
Florette quilt made with all Kona Cottons.:

Sure, there are people who add more quilts to the collective (like me) but those should be easy to keep up with, right?

I should never say those kinds of things: they get me thinking! Now I wonder how many quilt pins are added to Pinterest each day. I ...

One of my fondest memories is of my sisters and me playing and rolling down the hill in front of the lake. I also remember picking stickers out of my clothing, which adds to the humor.

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

Yes, sure. Puritans deserve a moment. Besides I've been grading papers about the Puritans and The Scarlet Letter. Thank goodness that is over with, but it meant missing Sunday Quilt Inspiration. I'm trying to catch up before too many people realize it! 

Events | Massachusetts Bay Colony | Timeline | The Association of Religion Data Archives:

John Knox (c. 1514 – 24 November 1572) was a Scottish clergyman and a leader of the Protestant Reformation who brought reformation to the church in Scotland.In Geneva he met John Calvin, from whom he gained experience and knowledge of Reformed theology and Presbyterian polity. On his return to Scotland he led the Protestant Reformation in Scotland.:

In Puritan New England, adulteresses were subject to public humility, while their male counterparts were often allowed to quietly fade into the background, facing neither censure nor shame. The story of Hester Prynne in Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “The Scarlet Letter” made it clear that the social mores of the time badly needed an update, and Prynne’s humility, dignity, and grace inspires women even now. She didn’t long for revenge; she only wanted peace and to be accepted for who she was:

Charles Haddon (CH) Spurgeon (19 June 1834 – 31 January 1892) was a British Particular Baptist preacher. Spurgeon remains highly influential among Christians of various denominations, among whom he is known as the "Prince of Preachers". He was a strong figure in the Reformed Baptist tradition. Spurgeon produced powerful sermons of penetrating thought and precise exposition. Many Christians have discovered Spurgeon's messages to be among the best in Christian literature.:

Richard Baxter (12 November 1615 – 8 December 1691) was an English Puritan church leader, poet, hymn-writer, theologian, and controversialist. Baxter became even better known for his prolific writing. His devotional classic The Saints' Everlasting Rest was one of the most widely read books of the century.:

Relating the "Scarlet Letter" to real world matters...including pdfs for students

Here are some things you might not have known about the high school English class staple. - 10 Ignominious Facts About 'The Scarlet Letter' | Mental Floss:

I think I’m finished. Initially, I thought I would fill in some of the grey, but I kind of like the light, filigree look it has now. Gotta go find a frame for it.:

I bet you thought it would be difficult to find some pins for this motif. I did have to search under both Puritans and The Scarlet Letter. Pinterest has mostly embroidered samplers or sampler quilts. But I also found a few quilts that could easily have served the Puritans' needs and aesthetics.

Second Chance Quilts Super Scrap Project from Pink Doxies

 Made by Irene Krall
Second Chance Quilts Are My True Love!

There comes a time in every avid quilter's life when she or he ask themselves what in the world will they do with the growing heaps of left over fabric. This dilemma hit me last year so I made the quilt below for Hands2Help. It was made entirely from scraps and stash. The beauty above was designed, made, and donated by a friend, The Scrap Queen, Irene Krall. It came to me for quilting, and I fell in love with it!

Made for the 2016 Hands2Help project.

Oh wait, this is America: land of the free, home of the brave. We don't do that. We're civilized. Human. Polite. Politically correct. I could go on. 

Instead I'll post a few "go vote" pins. These are not on my boards. I simply queried "vote" and found more than enough stuff. Enjoy! (And go vote.)

    You know you're getting close to retiring when former students become co-workers. When they begin having children in multiples, it's so much more fun. For me, it's a reason to continue working. For a little while anyway. I need time to get used to the idea of watching these children grow up on Facebook. So in honor of my "month of many children," let's be inspired by new babies.

    Sunday Quilt Inspiration: P H O T O S from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

    Don't you just love old photos? By old I mean the daguerreotype pictures of the 1800's. The black and white stereographic photographs that came after, and the sepia pictures of my childhood.   Have you ever wonder why some of the truly old daguerreotype sitters look creepy? There are a couple of reasons for the look: in some photos the sitter is actually dead. Another reason is that the sitter(s) had to remain very still for as long as ten minutes while the daguerreotype camera processed the view. 

    Vintage photo of girl hold young dog.:

    Victorian post mortem photography may seem strange, but for some families it was their only opportunity to have a memento of their loved one as photography was expensive at the time. Sometimes the dead were posed as if alive and sometimes are of children and babies due to the high death rate among this group at the time.:
