Pin It Weekly #242 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

I mentioned earlier in the week that Richard's aging parents are struggling with many health issues. We have been trying to help out and are finding that very time-consuming. Of course, we are happy to help them but when we add in the babysitting and taxi runs, there's almost nothing left for us. 

Fat-Quarter Favorites by Karen Burns. Fat quarter friendly quilt patterns for the modern quilter. Take those fun little chunks of fabric in fantastic new directions, trying fresh spins on classic quilt blocks, such as Jacob's Ladder, Churn Dash, and Pinwheel. Affiliate link.

As a result I haven't been blogging or sewing much. Stealing an hour feels just like stealing. I have to hide away to do either. I really want to keep up with both, but there's no knowing how much time I will be ...

Premier Prints fabric for throw pillow sewing classes from edeenut

A couple weeks ago I headed south to San Diego, California to teach a few sewing classes at Pinners Conference. This is always a great event, you should try to attend in a city near you, there are quite a few now to choose from across the country full of classes and hands on projects. Sewing is something I am passionate about. I love when people get excited about something they've made that I've taught them. I have learned a lot from the Pinners classes I've taught.

Pin It Weekly #242 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Happy Weekly!  Fighting a virus for several days takes the wind out of gal, so I haven't pinned this week. And I couldn't possibly muster up the energy to pick up the laptop, so I didn't pin last week. And, well you get the idea. It's been a few days.

I'm going on a trip. In five hours. A girl's trip. Not saying where. Just a few hints but no quilts. There's no time. I'm going on a trip.

Paducah is a fun, charming little city that can easily be explored in a couple of days.  You should visit and see why it was named the World's 7th City of Crafts and Folk Art by UNESCO in 2013.  Here is a list of nine things you can and should do in Paducah.

Pin It Weekly #241 A Tutorial of Sorts from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Have you been on your Pinterest lately? I really haven't in the last few days, but I discovered a nice little surprise waiting for me.

This is what my home page looks like, or maybe it's the header page. It's the one that shows up first when I go to Pinterest. But yes, surprised! Apparently Pinterest takes pins from your most popular board and throws them into these bricks or blocks. That's all I can tell you, but I like it.

Sunday Quilt Inspiration: signature blocks from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

I will begin working on a surprise quilt using signature blocks that will, of course, be signed by people who will be gathering together for a photo-shoot in May.

I like the use of rectangles and squares for the sashing and minimal use of white fabric.  I can't seem to get my blocks even with each other when the sashing is one piece.

 We are working on a directory, so while we have as many people as possible, we want to get as many signatures as possible. Then it will be a matter of calling anyone who did not sign to ask that they sign a patch. 

While one event is in no way related to the other, we thought that mixing them up would help us to achieve both endeavors. Is that broad ...

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

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.

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.

Young Girl Combing Her Hair - Pierre-Auguste RenoirHow's your Pinterest? I've been struggling to get on the computer at all. I've been busy cleaning the studio (YAY!) and doing some sewing (happy dance!) 

All that translates to I haven't been pinning. 

But other people have. So let's take a look at their work, shall we? Let's start with some artwork from James McNichols' "Paintings" board.

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

I know I'm stretching this a bit, but I love old ladders for storing or hanging quilts. So today I'm hoping to inspire you with some beautiful quilts on a few ladders.

Want to see this one under a neon light.What's happening in your Pinterest world? Are you getting any pinning done? If so, what's pinning? 

I don't know why, but I've been all over the map pinning stuff that just strikes my fancy. One day I pinned baby animals--I saw a few and jumped into the fray. Another day I pinned more quilts into my "scrap, quilts" board. I've ignored that board for such a long time, avoiding moving everything into "heart, quilts." Now I have more to move. What? Why?

Sunday Quilt Inspiration: B L U E from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Dulux has also developed a beautiful tonal colour palette to complement 2017’s Colour of the Year, featuring a spectrum of blues and blue-hue tones.I've been busy sewing blue scraps together to make small blocks of 4" and 6" squares. Tomorrow, if there's time, I'll begin making some 8" squares, but I also have to take Jolie to Lafayette for new ballet shoes and then to JoAnn Fabrics for enough black backing to finish the Harley Davidson quilt. I thought I could do it using pieces from the stash, but no. It can't be done. There's just not enough black solid, even if I were to piece together all of what I have.

Since I was playing with blue ...
