Fleur De Lis


Fleur De Lis is french for "lily flower" and there are LOTS and LOTS of different patterns that use the phrase for a quilt pattern.

1930s Nancy Cabot Version

1940s Laura Wheeler version

But I like this version best:
This is a 1930s version by Laura Wheeler and sorry I couldn't get the contrast here let me show you a better image:

This quilt was given to Beth and me by our friend Betsy G. (if she sounds familiar it's because she often shares photos of her flowers).

The quilt is up at Beth's house right now and we really love it!
Things we love about it:  the two color pattern, the art deco style of the quilt and the fact that it was used and well loved.

It also has a very 1930s look to it with the pastel colors!

Thanks again Betsy!

Have a great day!

  1. The second one doesn't look so much like fleur de Los but rather an ant or spider!
