Sunday Quilt Inspiration: Half-Square Triangles from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

I'm in a half-square triangle kind of mood. Pinterest is chock-full of them, so I thought I'd share some of the information and quilts that are available in the way of ideas.

First up: directions, tips, ideas, tutorials and cheats


half square triangles from two squares. Sew around the outside and cut on the diagonals. This is my favorite method!:

The Magic 8 tutorial - this is a great way to make 8 HST at once - She even does an easy equation to figure out how big to cut the original squares:

Sunday Quilt Inspiration: L A K E S from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

We are spending the weekend on the lake. A wonderful quiet lake in the middle of the state with lots of inlets and pennisulas where fishermen tend to congregate. The park is run by the small town nearby and is well kept.

I thought about the fact that my family went camping here when we were children. Now our children and grands (and in my case, a great-grandie) are here for Mother's Day fun. Since my family from in Louisiana, and some of the most interesting lakes are here, I thought I'd share some Pinterest pictures from my ...

Sunday Quilt Inspiration: G R E E N from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

I spent most of today working on a green baby quilt. 



It's been one of the easiest quilts I've ever worked on. I started with scraps a few days ago and have finished the quilting. Only binding and label left to go. Since I have so much green in my head, I thought I may as well go with it. 

Green colour palets that stand out and are eye catching, compared to our forest green - Olivia:  

They let you order books by color, subject, size, or binding!  Librarian meets decorator.  My dream.  :

Sunday Quilt Inspiration: W O R D S from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

So true. Sew'n Wild Oaks Quilting Blog: Another Day at the Nursery: I heard an interview on the radio today while I was cutting out a project to take with me to an upcoming retreat. A song-writer (sorry that I missed his name) was talking about how he struggled for almost a month to write a song for a particular singer. In the interview he said something along the lines of not having the words for the song he wanted to write. "I have words. I have lots of words. I just couldn't find them," he said. 


That statement reminded me of my own epiphany about words. A co-worker and I ...

This quilt top has oh, 63 birds on it, but she had made 64. What to do with the extra? Mail it to a friend, of course! She's generous like that.


My mention that her top reminded me of my mom, who was a birder, was the impetus for the sweet mail. How sweet can a girl be? Apparently very.

Sunday Quilt Inspiration: BIRD HOUSE from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Today we spent much of the afternoon at the Louisiana Nursery Festival in Forest Hill, a very small town that has probably 50 to 60 garden nurseries. It's the place to go if you want or need bedding plants, trees, seeds, or unusual, tropical plants. Everything in the way of green is in a small town with fewer than 1,000 residents.
