Lady Bird Quilts made this King size quilt for Janet Dudley from Little Bo Peep squares. They were hand embroidered and hand appliquéd by the aunt of her husband, Bob Dudley about 75 years ago when she was a teenager. Bob’s sister, Melodye Jones had saved and kept them over the years. Janet and Melodye picked out the colors and designed the entire quilt. All of the fabric (except the squares) came from our shop. It is backed in our White on Natural Antique Rose quilt backing with Hobbs Heirloom batting inside. I quilted it in the Ribbon Hearts design. It is wonderful to be able to help preserve the handwork of Bob and Melodye’s aunt and it stay in their family to be enjoyed for many years to come!
This charming Christmas Quilt was made by Ann Owens. It features a poinsettia print trimmed with the colors of Christmas in a delightful stepped pattern. Inside the quilt is our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting and I quilted it in Christmas Ornaments. A Christmas Quilt for the Holidays, what better gift to warm your heart and soul?
This colorful Four Patch ladder pattern quilt was pieced by Ruth Barber as a gift for Jamie and Christie Maphis. The longer I look at it the more shapes and patterns I see!

This quilt was pieced by Carolyn Johnson’s grandmother. The top is handsewn and is between 75 and 100 years old. It is a delightful variation of the X’s and O’s pattern. Carolyn brought it to us to finish so she could display and enjoy it. I quilted it in the Flights of Fancy design and the binding is made of material with a teacup print. It is backed with our White on Natural Antique Rose 108″ quilt backing and the batting is our Hobbs Heirloom batting which gives it the perfect weight and feel. A beautiful quilt to be enjoyed for generations!
