School Bus Throw!

Share

My sister Iris and I made this School Bus Throw as a surprise gift for a dear friend and loyal customer, Melissa Gilley. She is a school bus driver who cares so much about “her” kids we thought she needed this! The school bus is pieced and sewn into a blue background with a brown print (for a dirt road!) under the wheels. We sewed in pieces from a couple of school themed prints and I quilted it in “Diamonds” then made the binding in yellow to match the bus. Melissa is just a sweetheart! 🙂

Paige’s T-Shirt Quilt!

Share

Debbie Shepard made this T-Shirt quilt for her daughter, Paige. It showcases and preserves her T-shirts she has collected over the years from school, barrel racing and as an EMT. In keeping with the spirit of western riding Debbie sewed the shirts into a field of Brown Tilt-A-Whirl fabric. Inside, it’s filled with our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting and is backed with the same fabric it’s sashed with. I quilted it in “Wild Horses” and did the binding for her. A special quilt for a special girl made by a very loving and talented mother! 🙂

Strips & Squares Freestyle Throw!

Share

Ruth Wade made this catchy looking throw from strips and squares of various prints, mostly cool and natural colors bordered with a colorful batik. It just catches your attention! Inside we used our soft, easy to work with Hobbs Heirloom batting . The throw is backed with our Harvest Gold Tonal Vineyard quilt backing and I quilted it for her in “Curly Swirly” using dark turquoise thread. I love the colors!

Carpenter Star Quilt

Share

Carolyn Pilcher made this beautiful Carpenter Star quilt, it’s geometric and captivating! The various shades of blue separated by the off white and gray prints both compliment and contrast. Inside we used our soft but stable Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting and I quilted it in “Flights of Fancy” for her. I made the binding from the same material used for the backing. Very Nice Carolyn! 🙂

Child’s Quilt

Share

Patsy Willis made this bright and cheerful child’s quilt with squares of colorful and cheery prints bordered with another print chock full of color! The inside is filled with our soft, supple Hobbs Heirloom batting which we just love, recently I looked at a sample of 80/20 batting from another manufacturer… we’re staying with Hobbs. I quilted this one in Diamonds for her. Someone got a really nice gift!

FSU T-Shirt Quilt!

Share

Beverly Cox brought me this to quilt… An amazing bigger than King Size T-shirt quilt that she and members of her family made for someone they love very much! The quilt top is made from lots of Briana’s T-shirts she’s collected over her time in school. The quilt is framed with an FSU patch print and bordered in black for contrast. The back is a red garnet blenders print and I did the binding in gold for FSU! Inside we used our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting and I quilted it in arrows. Brianna there is no doubt, you have a family that loves you bunches! 🙂
