It’s Mardi Gras, which got us thinking about the traditions of New Orleans. One symbol found all over the city (especially in parades) is the fleur-de-lis. In architecture and on sports gear, the fleur-de-lis harkens back to the French roots of New Orleans.
Have you ever seen a quilt pattern that you love but wonder what it would look like in different colors? I do all the time. I’m never quite sure if what I end up choosing will look right and the result is the project ends up not getting made because I don’t want to take a chance.

Hi, everyone! This is Mona Phelps from Kentucky Whittaker Creations. I started sewing and quilting a little over two years ago. As soon as the sewing bug hit, the desire for all the fabrics followed. As I’m sure many of you can relate, I started stocking up on various fabrics – “building my stash,” if you will. I realized at the end of 2017 that I needed to try to focus on using the fabric I have on hand instead of shopping every time a new project came along.
