Sunday Quilt Inspiration: Art Nouveau from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

After taking a look at Art Deco last week, I became curious about Art Nouveau. "What's the difference?" kept entering my mind. So I did a little research.

Flower border

Turns out I'm addressing them backwards: Art Nouveau (new art) is the earlier style and is more naturalistic. That should have been last week's inspiration.

My mnemonic: First, art is "nouveau," (pronounced new-voe) and natural; it includes shapes from nature such as leaves, arcs, ferns.

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


Taking its inspiration from the Roaring Twenties and the decadent tastemakers of the jazz age the bold DECO MARTINI graphic print brings art deco opulence to your interior with exquisite colours of Arsenic greens. Classic has never looked so iconic. Order a sample • Print method: Digital. Hanging method: Paste the wall - no decorating table or pre-cutting needed!At our modern guild meeting, we discussed art deco, what it means and looks like, and how it influences the modern quilt movement. 

Art Deco uses bold design, clean lines, colors and patterns to create geometric shapes. It was most popular from the early 1910s through both world wars and fading from fashion in the beginnings of the 1950s. Intense color, line and shape are characteristic of art deco.

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

Crocs Classic Clog - Ice Blue ClogsRichard is right now having a fit over a pair of shoes that a granddaughter "borrowed" to run to town. She didn't want to wear her heels, so she slipped into his crocs. You don't imagine she asked permission, do you? I told her no, but well, the granddaughter is Jolie. The struggle is real, y'all. 


So shoes...

Sunday Quilt Inspiration: egg shapes from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories


Sometimes I look at an item and see a quilt. And sometimes I look at a quilt and see an object that probably is not meant by the maker. The first is a possible idea for a future quilt. The second is probably odd. Regardless, this inspiration comes from a quilt and manifested itself into an SQI. Or something like that.



It's no summer cookout without deviled eggs, and this patriotic batch will be a huge hit at your 4th of July celebration. #4thofjuly #4thofjulyideas #4thofjulyparty #4thofjulyfood #4thofjulyrecipes #fourthofjuly #fourthofjulyfood #summerrecipesDeviled eggs are hard boiled eggs where the yolk is mixed with mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper. A little sprinkle of paprika on top helps make these the best deviled eggs recipe.

So are you curious what kind of quilts might be deviled eggs incognito? Quite often they're modern, artsy, and colorful.

Sunday Quilt Inspiration: Quilty 365 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Be inspired by my "Quilty 365" board! There are over 100 pins of circle blocks, tops, and quilts, all part of the Quilty 365 challenge. I jumped in well after it started, but was still able to make enough blocks for a large quilt. Can you believe that these were made in 2016-17? Has it really been that long?


"The Quarry," my version of the Quilty 365 project quilted completely in circles (pebbles). It was a constant reminder of a quarry that we saw on vacation in 2015.

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

When I first wrote this SQI in May of 2015, I provided this link so that anyone interested in finding Modern Quilt Guild could find the 30 groups that had boards on Pinterest. Tonight the same search, "modern quilt guilds" brings up about 150 boards. That's more math than I can do, but I will safely say it's a grand increase in four years! I hope you enjoy this retro post of Sunday Quilt Inspiration.

This is a custom designed stained glass window panel that was created to hanging in a long narrow window or sidelight. It measures approximately 9 1/2 inches wide X 57 inches long.  We find these long bubble designs look great when hung or installed horizontally above French doors or vertically in the side light of a front entry door. They add color, interest and privacy to a home.Hiroyuki Hamada

Sunday Quilt Inspiration: B U T T O N S from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Here's a repost of a 2013 Sunday Quilt Inspiration.

I'm working on a quilt inspired by a few of my grandmother's buttons.  My mom gave them to me many years ago and I've kept them all this time.  I can't bring myself to use them because they may be lost, so they serve more as a memento of her than as buttons normally do.  A few days ago I saw a quilt on Pinterest that I decided I wanted to replicate.

Back when I taught Fine Arts Survey at Bunkie High, I studied enough architecture to be able to know the columns of ancient Rome and Greece. When I was pinning earlier in the week, I discovered these drawings. Of course, I had to add them to my "architecture buildings construction edifice structure" board.

Herringbone Pattern Template via Grace + GumptionI've been pressure-washing around the house. Today the concrete between the back door and studio. Yesterday the patio bricks. It's amazing how much dirt and scum has built up since the last time I did this chore. Having a wet, muggy winter does it. We struggle with mold, mildew, and spores here. It's the downside to the green. So while we have azaleas, roses and other plants in bloom, we also have oak, pecan, and grass pollen.

Photos coming, but first a few personal notes from Quilt Con.


I happened upon Tula Pink of Pink Door Studios. She made it big with her Etsy shop and wild fabric lines. The huge vendor booth looked familiar (I passed by a couple of times) and I kept wondering what that familiarity was. Her fabric lines, of course! They are beautiful, colorful and happy. I take issue with some of the language that appears on her work, but maybe I'm just not that modern.
