Sunday Quilt Inspiration: MQG past from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

I'm getting so very excited at the prospect of attending QuiltCon in just over a month. I can't see enough modern quilts. Enjoy these moderns from previous QuiltCon exhibits and the people who make up the MQG.


Mountain Horizon Quilt Pattern

Most people take a quilt class to improve their skills and to spend time with friends. Both are excellent reasons to take a class, but there’s another, often-overlooked reason to take a class: you get to see how other quilters approach the design. And it’s not just the students in my classes who enjoy this—I do too!  Not long ago I taught Pick-Up Sticks, from The Quilter’s Practical Guide To Color  , at The Quilt Crossing in Boise, Idaho. The 8” x 8” finished-size blocks are cut and sewn im...

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

Photo

Oh my poor cacti. The little succulents that couldn't fill the pot. The ones I tried to save by putting into a terrarium and wrote about here. Those cacti.


Cacti and succulents are not heavy feeders but do benefit from light feeding during their growing period - usually the warmer months of the year...
They aren't doing well. I will likely have to start over in the spring if I ever want to see that pot spilling over like my inspiration from the International Peace Gardens. Thus, an ode to my pitiful cacti. (I can't show them to you. It's too pitiful.) Inspiration for cacti of a different description.


Urbanika Moda: Decorando con cactus y suculentas / Decorating with cacti and succulents

Let’s talk about Indoor Plants.  I will admit that I have had many a challenges with keeping them alive…from the Ficus Tree that I brought into the bathroom every time I took a shower so it can feel like it was in the Tropics…to the Countless Zebra Plants that I made Humidifying Tents to then …

One pillow or two? from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories


As promise earlier in the week, I want to show you the pillow I made for a customer. Her sister lost a child recently and she had a couple of his favorite tee shirts, which I quilted and made into one pillow. 


I used the backs of the shirts because both had beautiful wing motifs and challenged myself to use the wings for the quilting.  

The backing is this green/beige knit that was in my stash. It worked quite well and didn't pucker at all despite having a good bit of stretch to it.


The background has a ...

Potted and terrarium-ed from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

In April I decided that this huge pot in the yard needed something, other than grass and weeds, growing in it. So I spent about $25 or so on some pretty succulents and planted them thinking that they at least had a chance of surviving in this Louisiana heat. 

You know, that kind of money doesn't go far in the world of plants, but I figured they'd grow fast. Like the weeds, maybe? They don't. I added more plants but they didn't fill in the open space much. I was out of money so I had ...

The Fast-Fleeting Days of May... from From the Strawberry Patch...

Another Be-Attitudes block done, I was able to squeeze this, the May addition, in just under the wire to qualify as a finish this month. I look forward to getting these blocks assembled into a quilt top this fall, it is a fun project and I do love each and every block along the way. This month has sped by. (Not so different from any other month anymore in its relative velocity of passage!) I

Room To Grow from From the Strawberry Patch...

This is but one of many little dish gardens that sweetly sat on the tables at our son and daughter-in-law's wedding reception. The dish gardens were given to friends and family members to take home after the wedding reception was over, that was back in May of 2008, nine and a half years ago. Since then there has been growth, lots of it: over time our son and daughter in law bought a home and

Scrap a day 3..... from Better than I deserve!

 I used alot of my western fabric scraps on this one.
 It was another Pinterst pattern. I should have went back and found them again so I could have shared them.
 I still could and put them in the next post:)
 It was a fast and easy pattern.
 My Jade plant is getting so big I don't know how I would ever get it transplanted to a new pot. It's been in that one for years and is probably root bound.
The peacock that lived here for a few weeks and then decided to run away from home ...
