Hearts in Hearts Quilt

Share

This quilt was made for my grandson Tyler Helms and his bride, McKenzie as a wedding gift. My sister, Iris and I pieced the top, she embroidered their last name and the year. I quilted it and did the binding. I also monogrammed the “label” directly on the border fabric. The pattern is our very own signifying his holding her heart within his, surrounding and protecting her. I quilted it in “Twinkling Hearts” and the back is made from our 108” Navy Blue Quilters Blenders. We wish Tyler and Kenzie a lifetime of happiness together!

This bright and cheerful Pinwheel Quilt was made by Michelle Collier. It features bright prints including some Florida Gators prints accented with blue and orange, the colors of the University of Florida. It’s filled with our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting and I quilter in the “Twine” design with ecru thread. You did a beautiful job Michelle!

Dale Guthrie Retirement Quilt

Share

Bonnie NeSmith asked us to make this quilt as a retirement gift for Dalen Guthrie from her staff in the Jackson County Clerk’s Office. The quilt features the embroidered emblems on the leftover polo shirts the staff wore. The balance of the quilt is done in garnet & gold, the colors of Florida State University. It’s filled with our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting and is backed & bound with the same Quilters Blender Gold used in the top. My sister Iris pieced the top, I stipple quilted it and made the binding. We wish Dale a Happy Retirement!

Completion of a Family Heirloom!

Share

This quilt was pieced by Harold Clark’s grandmother years ago. It even survived a fire. He brought the quilt top to me and asked if I could finish it for him which I was happy to do. I used our Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting and backed it with our 108” Antique Rose tone on tone quilt backing. At his request I quilted it in a simple 2” grid to simulate how his grandmother would have quilted it by hand. I made the binding from the same material as the back. Glad to be able to finish this and bring it to life for him! 🙂

Mare & Foal Quilt

Gwen Cook made this precious western themed quilt featuring a mare and her foal for her granddaughter, Mary Kate. The central square is surrounded by contrasting triangles of paisley prints. She also added some wonderful machine embroidery to personalize the quilt. It’s filled with our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 quilt backing and I quilted it in horses using lime green thread. This is lovely Gwen!
