Pin It Weekly #293 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

My "heart, quilts" board has become quite popular. With good reason: there are 12,000 pins of quilts. I've been curating this board since I found Pinterest, which was not long after it started back in 2010-11. So, even conservatively, that's about eight years of pulling together some inspiration for all of us. 

Plaids- great way of using up mens shirts for a masculine quilt

At the beginning, there were not many quilts to be pinned. In fact, I got permission to add quilts from the Quilt Index, an online quilt registry. I added perhaps 100 quilts before it became too time-consuming and I was forced to quit.

A Sign... (a painted finish) from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

After I made the cross earlier in the week, I decided to expand my experience and paint a few scrap boards and add a Bible quote on each. No reason for it, I just like the idea.

After digging through Richard's small pile of scrap lumber, I sanded down the pieces I chose and painted them using craft paint. I was going for a watery feel. Or maybe a sunset. Whatever it wants to be.

Except this small pink one on the right. Nope, not liking it so I've repainted over some of the orange and red stripes ...

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

Modern Neutral Quilt

It's time re revisit Sunday Quilt Inspiration from June of 2014. One reason for revisiting it is that it's the most popular post on my blog, but also it is still quite relevant for today. After all, who doesn't like a neutral quilt? I've made a few changes and added a couple of quilts to the mix, including two neutral quilts that I made.

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

I think I've used crosses for SQI before, but there's a reason for a repeat: I have made the cross. Well, Richard made the cross, I just put my two cents in. First off, I chose the wood from some of the scraps in his shed. He figured out the woodworking and built it, sanded it, clear coated it, buffed it and turned it over to me.

I designed and cut some foil adhesive paper in gunmetal to decorate it with a Bible verse from Psalm 86:11. "Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk ...

Sunday Quilt Inspiration: Art Nouveau from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

After taking a look at Art Deco last week, I became curious about Art Nouveau. "What's the difference?" kept entering my mind. So I did a little research.

Turns out I'm addressing them backwards: Art Nouveau (new art) is the earlier style and is more naturalistic. That should have been last week's inspiration.

Sunday Quilt Inspiration: art deco from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Taking its inspiration from the Roaring Twenties and the decadent tastemakers of the jazz age the bold DECO MARTINI graphic print brings art deco opulence to your interior with exquisite colours of Arsenic greens. Classic has never looked so iconic. Order a sample • Print method: Digital. Hanging method: Paste the wall - no decorating table or pre-cutting needed!At our modern guild meeting, we discussed art deco, what it means and looks like, and how it influences the modern quilt movement. 

Art Deco uses bold design, clean lines, colors and patterns to create geometric shapes. It was most popular from the early 1910s through both world wars and fading from fashion in the beginnings of the 1950s. Intense color, line and shape are characteristic of art deco.

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

Crocs Classic Clog - Ice Blue ClogsRichard is right now having a fit over a pair of shoes that a granddaughter "borrowed" to run to town. She didn't want to wear her heels, so she slipped into his crocs. You don't imagine she asked permission, do you? I told her no, but well, the granddaughter is Jolie. The struggle is real, y'all. 

So shoes...

Sunday Quilt Inspiration: egg shapes from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Sometimes I look at an item and see a quilt. And sometimes I look at a quilt and see an object that probably is not meant by the maker. The first is a possible idea for a future quilt. The second is probably odd. Regardless, this inspiration comes from a quilt and manifested itself into an SQI. Or something like that.

It's no summer cookout without deviled eggs, and this patriotic batch will be a huge hit at your 4th of July celebration. #4thofjuly #4thofjulyideas #4thofjulyparty #4thofjulyfood #4thofjulyrecipes #fourthofjuly #fourthofjulyfood #summerrecipesDeviled eggs are hard boiled eggs where the yolk is mixed with mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper. A little sprinkle of paprika on top helps make these the best deviled eggs recipe.

So are you curious what kind of quilts might be deviled eggs incognito? Quite often they're modern, artsy, and colorful.

Sunday Quilt Inspiration: Quilty 365 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Be inspired by my "Quilty 365" board! There are over 100 pins of circle blocks, tops, and quilts, all part of the Quilty 365 challenge. I jumped in well after it started, but was still able to make enough blocks for a large quilt. Can you believe that these were made in 2016-17? Has it really been that long?

"The Quarry," my version of the Quilty 365 project quilted completely in circles (pebbles). It was a constant reminder of a quarry that we saw on vacation in 2015.

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

When I first wrote this SQI in May of 2015, I provided this link so that anyone interested in finding Modern Quilt Guild could find the 30 groups that had boards on Pinterest. Tonight the same search, "modern quilt guilds" brings up about 150 boards. That's more math than I can do, but I will safely say it's a grand increase in four years! I hope you enjoy this retro post of Sunday Quilt Inspiration.
