Black & White Diamonds Quilt

Share

Betty George made this stunning black and white quilt in a diamonds pattern. It’s backed with our Flowy Gray 108” quilt backing and filled with Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting from our shop. I quilted it in the “Fancy 3” design in lime green and made the binding from the same material as it is backed with. This is a gorgeous quilt Betty! 🙂

“Warm” 3 Dudes Quilt for Page

Share

I made this queen size quilt for my husband, Page who likes the pattern and wanted a “really warm” quilt for winter. It is the 3 “Dudes” pattern made from 2 ½” strips. I bordered it with piano keys, then backed and bound it with our Quilters Blenders Blue Atoll 108” quilt backing. It’s quilted in the Diamonds design. I used a medium high loft poly-fill batting and….. it’s really warm! So warm that he only wants to sleep under it on the coldest nights! Of course we don’t have too many of those in Florida but he loves looking at it anyway. 🙂

Lauren’s T-Shirt Quilt!

Share

Stacey Strickland and his wife asked me to make a T-Shirt Quilt for their daughter, Lauren as a Christmas present. It includes her T-shirts along with some of her dad’s plus a handkerchief and doilies of her grandmother. I put it together with lime green fabric in solid and chevrons. Georgiana Hand did the machine embroidery. It is filled with our Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 Batting for just the right weight and feel. I backed it with our 108” Softie Lime Green Quilt Backing and quilted it in Square Spirals. A great tribute to Lauren’s many interests and her family!

State Birds & Flowers Quilt

Share

Carla Nix asked me if I could make quilt for her father, St. Elmo Harrison from a set of squares beautifully hand embroidered with all 50 states, the year of statehood, the state bird and the state flower. Mr. Harrison had purchased the set of squares previously with the intention of having a quilt made from them. I was glad to make it for them! I sashed it with red and blue Quilters Blenders fabric from our shop, bordered with one of our patriotic flag prints then bound it with red after quilting. The quilt is filled with Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting for a soft comfortable feel and ideal weight. I stipple quilted it with Ecru thread. This quilt is a queen size tribute to America! 🙂

Red, White & Blue Disappearing Pinwheel Throw

Share

This is a throw I made in the Disappearing Pinwheel pattern using  Santee fabric we carry. It is made from Poinsettia Red Quilters Blenders, Tone on Tone White Circles and Ocean Blue Quilters Blenders. Our Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting is inside and I quilted it in the “Star Spangled” design. This throw is for sale in our shop for $300. The Disappearing Pinwheel is a fun block! 🙂

Jamie’s Motorcycle Quilt

My sister, Iris Tye Melvin made this motorcycle quilt in Harley-Davidson colors for our nephew, Jamie Maphis from T-shirts he has collected from motorcycle rallies and Harley dealers around the country. It also includes some traditional quilt blocks and squares by women who have quilted in our family. It’s filled with our Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting and backed with Quilters Blenders Blue Atoll 108” quilt backing from our shop. I quilted it in Flames and Motorcycles with lime green thread. Gorgeous job sister!
