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

I have a board, titled "Stacked Quilts," which is I created for pinning the myriad ways that people have found to display and store their quilt collections. Trunks, chairs, armoires, cabinets, baskets, quilt hangers, ladders and many more. Here are a few interesting ones.

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Week of Finishes! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

It seems like most of the country has been in the grips of a cold snap this week, and we all know what that means - more time for sewing!  And since it's Friday, that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  Are you ready?  Let's get started!


I'm not very fond of cold weather, so staying snugged up in my nice warm studio is my idea of fun!  And I had a lot of fun this week, finishing up some projects both old and new.

Sunday Quilt Inspiration: studio organization from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

While beautiful and fun, these organization ideas won't break the bank!

Like the book shelves along the wall...and the sewing station.

Any kind of furniture with drawers: dressers, file cabinets, desks. If it has drawers, it will make a great piece to add to your space.
Cutting Table (Dresser side) and Design Wall | Flickr - Photo Sharing!Flat storage drawers for fabric. Great space!

Drawer units can be extremely useful when you need to keep your small things stored in one place where you can easily find them. ALEX has 6 drawers, castors and a white finished back, so that you can move it from room to room and still look good.

You don't need drawers  - this is so much better

Furniture with shelves can hold a multitude of items: fabric, books and mags, baskets and boxes, tools. If you find a bookshelf, snap it up, paint it and voila! fabulous storage.

I May Have a Scrap Problem... Leftover Binding! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

I definitely have a scrap problem this week - my scrap bucket is starting to overflow, but no time to deal with it as I work hard on the end of Hands2Help!  But I did do a little clean-up today putting away binding scraps, so I thought I'd share my process with you!

I started with some leftover binding, and added my tools - something to measure with, post-it notes, a pencil, and some short straight pins!

Step one:  measure that binding scrap!  (Duh!)  This isn't rocket science, you just want a general length.  I usually round down ...

Clear View. from Sunburnt Quilts

Still not a lot happening here in the way of finishes. This little clear view pouch is the only offering. It was part of a kit from a stitching day with Gail Pan last  year. It did have an embroidery to go on the fabric side, but I am keeping that for another purpose.

I am collecting a lot of small pieces from both wool and felt projects and want several of these pouches to use for storage. So, more to come.

Another project that is very time consuming is the McKenna Ryan quilt I am working on. I have ...

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

I know I'm stretching this a bit, but I love old ladders for storing or hanging quilts. So today I'm hoping to inspire you with some beautiful quilts on a few ladders.

I spent time arranging my oldest quilts on my ladder yesterday. Our foyer is two stories tall and has the stairway in it. I was able to tilt the ten foot ladder towards the first landing to place t…

Decorating With Quilts: I love this idea! I have an antique small ladder I used to put towels on in guest bathroom. I have a beautiful quilt rack my father-in-law made for us, but this is another option on a small bedroom wall. Read More at:

Thinking ahead! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

I didn't get a lot of sewing or quilting done yesterday. I'm going to have to rejig my schedule a wee bit in order to not lose that quilting/sewing time.

I'm doing the 60-day challenge at the gym with the intention of losing 10 pounds of FAT!  Every Tuesday, there's a class to introduce us to different classes at the gym. Yesterday was bodyweight training. Simple exercises that didn't require any equipment, but I was dead at the end! A very effective workout that you could do anywhere or only do part of them ...

Name tag and Studio Pics from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

I made a quick name tag to wear at our monthly guild meetings. I've escaped having to do that for several years because I was rarely able to attend. 

Now that I can attend every month and am president, I need to set a good example. Am I right? Besides there's a $1 fine every time I show up without a name tag. That was also okay but, let's face it, the fines will begin to add up now.

I've joined several sewing/quilting groups on Facebook recently. One of them is all about craft rooms ...

I May Have A Scrap Problem...But I'm Working On It! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

have to say, my February Scrap Attack goal has really got my cutting mojo going!   I spent the last week cutting up scraps all the time, it seems.  

I got started with this bag, which contained a lot of the remains from some of the last few t-shirt quilts I've made...

...and started cutting the largest pieces I could from the remains.  I used either my 20" wide template or my 15" wide template, and cut either full or partial squares, depending on the size of the t-shirt.  Most of my blocks ended up being 15 ...

Storage in the Studio {scour and scrub} from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

I've wanted to do a little cleaning in the studio for a while now. The problems of stuff piled and stacked in every inch of real estate overwhelms me. Additionally, there are things that simply do not belong in the studio. Period.

The new cabinet the middle part
with drawers is what we started with.

I started working on the problems a few weeks ago when I asked Richard to help me. Now, Richard is one of those people who is patient and loving and truly wants to help. Now. Right NOW.

After painting, there's lots of storage ...

Tiny Dresden Party week 2 from Ellyn's Place

The tiny dresden party continues over on Instagram! I shared my week one finishes here. I was having so much fun making embellished hoops I decided to keep on making them! Two more finished for week two....
As before, my dresdens are smaller than 5 inches. I love adding chain stitch and sequins...
And this one has an aqua sequined center and tiny black beads at the dresden points...
All of the colorful sequins and tiny beads were creating a mess in my studio. Not that I'm a neat-nick or anything (confession, I'm NOT) but they were making ...

My Stash Storage from Seacoast Quilter

Happy Wednesday,

After posting about my sewing stash storage several of my local friends asked about it. And I just happened to get new boxes, and a new fabric line in the last couple days. So I thought I'd share photos.

Here is the fabric that came, called Bally Hall by designer Di Ford-Hall. I bought a bundle with a yard of each of the large bird prints and fat quarters of the rest, from Reproduction Fabrics. As you can see it has a lovely color palette and is dated mid-nineteenth century. I don't know what I'll ...

Fabric Storage from Cottage Quilt Studio

I love to walk into my studio and see all of the beautiful fabrics on the shelves. However, I do not like to fold them and try to keep them neat and organized when they are folded.

I never seem to fold them the same size….so I decide to invest in some Polar Notions fabric boards. They are so easy to use and keep the fabric on display, neat and organized. I have gotten up to 10 yards on 1 board or as little as a yard. I have 100 of these boards and need to order 200-300 more ...

Studio update – new spool racks from Blue Square Quilting

My sister is my blog’s biggest fan and has been giving me a hard time for not posting anything since June. She is right of course. So this one if for you, Frédérique !

If you have been following this blog for a while, you know that I do all my work in my converted attic. An attic has obvious challenges in terms of storage, mainly due to the lack of straight walls. Over the last couple of years, I have accumulated a large number of big thread spools that I stored in plastic containers. And because they were stored ...
