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! It is backed with our 108” wide Tilt-A-Whirl natural 100% cotton quilt backing and the batting is Hobbs 80/20 Heirloom. I stipple quilted it for her. Beautiful work Aunt Ruth!

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!
This quilt was designed by Jeffery Tye. His grandmother (my sister) Iris Tye Melvin and I pieced it together. It features appliqué seagulls and anchor which was monogrammed with his initials by Tonya Pilcher Banks of SweeT T’s Embroidery & Boutique. You’ve got the sun, sky, sand and water all right here! Jeffery and I quilted it together with waves, seashells and clouds. It makes you want to go to the beach! 🙂
