Killing Time and Ballet on Pointe from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

I finished the Harley Davidson quilt top last week but didn't have the backing fabric that I wanted. While I had a few days of down time, I decided to sew some blue scraps together to make some small blocks. The blue bucket was spilling over. It's not that bad now, but it sure seems that I didn't reduce the volume by much.

I have a new set of rulers that we bought about a month ago. I wanted a 15" square ruler to make cutting tee shirts easier, but the set of four was cheap enough ...

My first pattern: ‘Scrappy Cushion’ from Granny Maud's Girl

A year ago, I picked up a length of bright blue pompom trim that a local guild member was destashing. The trim was the starting point for this bright and scrappy cushion, which I English paper pieced.

A length of pompom trim was the inspiration.

You too can make your own version of this cushion because I saved all the templates I drew and collected them into my first pattern!

Sunday Quilt Inspiration: Y O Y O S from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

One more look at yoyos. I have to get my act together and need all the inspiration I can get. That craziness that I dreamed up is already chewing on my backside. I have yet to really get started making the darn things. However, I did buy "a yoyo cheater."

Really they're not difficult to make either way, but my goal is to be able to make them faster once I get used to the maker. While we were at Joann Fabrics, Richard tossed the only other available size into the buggy. That makes small, no really small, yoyos ...

Not so sure about this one from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

I've started a new project using scraps. All was going along fine, until I ran out of scraps! Can you believe that? I want a quilt that will be larger than 45 inches square. That's not much of a quilt, unless it's for a baby. 

I don't think this one is for a baby. Though that's the closest I am to knowing what it is to be. Anyway, I was really out of scraps! That meant only two choices: cut up some yardage to make scraps--which somehow defeats the purpose--or pull scraps from a bin ...

Pin It Weekly #229 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

What have you been pinning? I've been pinning lots and lots of yoyos. Yoyos in wreaths. Yoyos in quilts. Yoyos on pillows. Yoyos in ornaments. Yoyos here, there, everywhere!


There's a reason for all this interest in yoyos. My guild is playing "The Great Yoyo Race." It's a game that I wrote about yesterday. You can see the game rules here.  

So cure -Yoyo dog, You'll find other creative works to do on this blog/site. :)

Letter from the President from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Hahahaa, yes! President. Of our quilt guild, of course. Can't imagine taking on anything with more responsibility than this office. So yesterday was our first meeting with yours truly at the helm. Things went well. People laughed, I didn't cry, and we began and ended on time. What more can I ask for?

So we took care of the important business of planning our guild trip to the Gulf States Quilt Guild show in April. Then moved on to "The Great Yoyo Race" a game I contrived. In December I asked that anyone who had a completed project ...

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

Normally I would show actual scraps--piles of scraps--but those are not really a thing on Pinterest.  We'll just have to be happy with scrap projects to see the scraps. But after that, we'll take a look at some actual scrap quilts. Does that make sense?

When all else fails... from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

take a nap in a basket. Somehow I got saddled with a great-grandbaby who has the sweetest disposition. Until it's naptime. Do not think you can disrupt her beauty rest. 

There are lots of things in the studio, but not one baby bed, play pen, or pallet. So we had two choices: go take naps in the camper (which included my leaving the sewing room) or improvise. Basket and quilt to the rescue. And there you have it. Who would ask for more? 

Plus, one more little detail: sweet baby does not light in her eyes when she sleeps ...

Scrap Attack! from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

You all know Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. (Isn't she the cutest little thing?) You may know about her Scrap Attack! plan for 2018. I just found out tonight. Funny that, only because I've been working on a scrap quilt using neutrals/brown. (Yes again) 

I may as well join, right? This way when everyone is getting started, I can say I'm in because I will be. And, wow!, I won't the last gal on the merry-go-round. 


Started with this, except waaay more

I Actually Sewed Today! - from Quilting My Way

Yep, that's what I said - I sewed today!

First thing this morning went to visit with Cherrill. After all that was done, I came home and heated up the room downstairs.

I had an idea of what I wanted to do. I cut the fabric's for the project bags. I didn't use a pattern - not for me. I can't seem to understand patterns and it's easier for me to do things as I go. So, I wanted to use the vinyl for the insides. I wanted to make Katt a couple bags, and decided I ...

DrEAMi! Linky #8 from MMM Quilts

Sorry this is posting late; seems to be a theme in QBL today! What do you get when you put a not-quite-finished orange row for your RSC project #3 together with water, a fair amount, though not a flood, in the basement which mystifies your MacGyver? Yup, a late DrEAMi! link-up.  He's at Lowe's, as I type, going to replace the bath faucet because he thinks that may be the culprit. He's not sure this is the cause, which has me a tad alarmed as this has been an ongoing issue since we moved in here, though ...
