Pin It Weekly #256 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Happy Weekly! Here are a few quilts that I recently pinned.

CROSSROADS - Diane Melms

First up, everything by Diane Melms--she may be my favorite new quilter. Here are five of her fantastic pieces.

Next, I've been watching Perspective in Landscape Drawing by Patrick Conners, one of the lessons on Craftsy's Bluprint platform. (No affiliation.) And the result is that I really want to begin a landscape quilt.

"Birches" - sewn fabric collage by Merle Axelerad;  "Each of these textile art pieces are created by sewing thousands of fabric pieces together collage style to create the final fabric collage. Unlike traditional collage, Merle Axelrad uses no adhesives in creating her landscapes."Art Quilt by Kathy Schattleitner (Grand Junction, CO) Incredible!!!

Sunday Quilt Inspiration: N U M B E R S //past posts\\ from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

As I was thinking of today's quilt inspiration post, I found that it's becoming quite difficult to find new ideas. I've been keeping a list of ideas for several years, but haven't added to it in quite a long time. And the ideas still on the list are pretty lame.

This afternoon it occurred to me that I have several posts that are popular and I could try to revisit a few of those in the hopes that inspiration would come to me soon. So the next few weeks will revisit some of the posts that ...

Pin It Weekly #255 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

I imagine it's time to get back to pinning. Question: was I on a herringbone/chevron thing before the computer crash? Well, whatever happened, it was hefty because there are easily 15 chevron quilts in one small section of my "heart, quilts" board

Pin It Weekly #254 (Surprise!) from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

"These Pins got you 18,533 impressions in the last 7 days! Be sure to claim your website and create Pins daily to grow the reach of your content on Pinterest."
So that little note got my attention. I'm not certain what 18,000 impressions might be exactly, but it can't be bad. I've looked at this email, which arrives once a week, every now and again. I wasn't impressed. For the most part my Pinterest and this blog work together and somehow generate about 5,000 impressions weekly.

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

When real life objects seem meaningless,vlouds of varying colours and shapes become significant.Aren't clouds just beautiful? All floaty and soft and colorful. I love to look at the sky. And to enjoy the clouds. Just a few days ago Richard and I were driving through a threatening storm. The clouds were pink and coral on our east and, toward the south, dark purplish gray with lighter and darker grays mixed in. 


Immediately I saw a dragon in the dark grays and Richard found a dog in the east. My dragon lasted for several minutes but his dog morphed into a bunny and then a fantastical flower that surely Dr. Suess drew ...

House cleaning on Pinterest from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories


Richard likes to watch television at night. I can't sleep with the flashing lights and the sound, so last night I decided to pin a few ideas for a friend. She's been thinking of painting a few wooden, farmhouse style signs. Well, Pinterest is not lacking in ideas for that idea! I had 41 pins in very little time.



I started with signs, pinned a few quilts as they popped up, then started editing boards. I've been thinking of renaming boards just to make them a bit more interesting and informative. Why not start at 11 p ...

The Forest: a novel by Edward Rutherfurd {book review} from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories


Edward Rutherfurd || Russka

It's Monday morning and I am finally realizing that I have not posted Pin It Weekly and Sunday Quilt Inspiration! I'd say that is because I just didn't have enough time, thank you doctor's appointments

Richard had two tests and an appointment; I had two appointments, and the dreaded look-inside-the-entire-human-digestive-system scopes. Luckily I've blocked out (or drugged out) every possible moment of our time with doctors. 

On the happy side, all of the waiting room sitting meant I got to read! I'm almost in the middle of Edward Rutherfurd's The Forest.

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

I'm doing something a little differently today. Instead of finding inanimate objects or colors or whatever, I've pulled some of my favorite art quilts and am pairing them with everyday quilts--those not made to be viewed as art. Everyday quilts here means the maker was making them to be used in whatever capacity on a daily basis. 

Here are many of my modern / abstract quilts.  The most recent are at the top.
Beginning with this beautiful little aqua art quilt, 

www.psiquilt.com/2011/05/escapade-loves-poseidon.html
one might be inspired 
by the color, 
A vintage Philco television, with its side-mounted speaker and signature screen shape, inspired this Mod TV quilt from Jacquie Gering and Katie Pedersen. The Weighted Log Cabin block variation has a shape similar to the Philco and a midcentury modern feel.

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

I've always been infatuated with little hummingbirds. Once, when I was still very young, I caught one in my hand as it buzzed around my mom's roses.

It stuck me (as opposed to pecked) me in that soft part of the palm that connects the thumb and forefinger. I think it surprised me much more than hurt. He got away!

This is such a fantastic "Courthouse Steps" variation by Alexis Deise. I especially like the strips of grey fabric that make an appearance in a few of the blocks.

Rebeccamata is a new pinner who has only a few boards, but she's gaining ground with her "tatting patterns" board.


Interesting tatting shuttle case - though I like to carry one or two shuttles (with balls of extra thread) in a separate fabric zipper pouch that fits into my purse...one of my pet peeves is having a few minutes I could use to tat and my hands have to sit empty and bored. And it's a lot more calming than playing games on my iPhone.

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

Happy inspiration! Here's hoping these castles from my "castle, home" board inspire you. 


It was partially destroyed by a great fire March 13, 1932, just after the baron Robert Lejeune, then owner of the castle, had been installing new central heating. The castle now remains in ruins. Only the chapel behind the castle was spared and still in reasonable condition.

Vorselaar Castle, Belgium

So beautiful and yet so sad, we stopped here after our visit north on our way to Bilboa. If I had money, I would want to fix this place up!!


Englefield House, Berkshire. Miss Havisham’s ‘Satis House’ in "Great Expectations."  Englefield House and gardens are regularly used as a film location and the estate can be seen in The King’s Speech, as well as Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple, Poirot, Inspector Morse and Jeeves and Wooster. The gardens can be visited from April to October.

Medieval, Marienburg Castle in Hannover, Germany

Caerphilly Castle ~ is a medieval fortification in Caerphilly, South Wales. Constructed by Gilbert de Clare in the 13th century.

Ruins of Gondars Castle, Ethiopia | Raphael Bick

Conwy Castle, Wales.

Dresden Castle, Dresden, Germany

Coimbra, Portugal. Castle

With over 500 pins on this board, choosing just a few was quite difficult. But we must move on to castle quilts. These are all in my "baby, quilts" board.
