Sampler

Share

I put this sampler quilt together for Pat Hammitt from a collection of beautiful quilt blocks made by her mother-in-law.  The back is sewn together from material Pat provided and it has our Hobbs Heirlooom 80/20 batting inside.  I quilted it in the pipeline design and then bound it with some of the same material used for the back. There are quite a few different quilt blocks in this one!  🙂

T-Shirt Quilt featuring Basketball

Share

I made this T-shirt quilt for Diane McCombs as a Christmas present for her son.  It showcases his sports shirts surrounded by his school colors.  The fabric is all from Lady Bird Quilts.  It’s backed with our Black Tilt-A-Whirl 108” quilt backing and filled with Hobbs 80/20 Heirloom Batting for a nice wight and feel.  Since he is mostly into basketball I quilted it in Basketballs & Loops then made the binding from a basketball print

Wolf Quilt

Share

Robin Ham contacted me and asked me make a quilt for him and told me that he wanted it to have wolves on it.  So I made him a quilt with wolves on it!  The blue triangle print reminds me of mountains with a pristine lake in front, the green fabric has the lightning of a summer storm and the tan reminds me of the open areas of the American West.  All of the colors together also remind me of the heritage of Native Americans.  The fabric all came from our shop, it’s backed with our 108” Tonal Vineyard Natural Khaki and is filled with Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting.  I stipple quilted it.  Hope you are enjoying it Robin! 🙂

Ducks Quilt

Share

Connie Melzer asked us to make this quilt as a gift for a special friend of theirs.  She provided the panel and picked out the colors.  Iris and I pieced the top and surrounded the ducks with split rail fence patchwork.  All of the fabric except the panel is fabric we carry at Lady Bird Quilts.  It is backed in Tilt A Whirl Brown and I quilted it in a loose stipple design.

Law Enforcement Quilt

Share

This king sized memory quilt was made by Patti Spooner out of shirts and patches from her husband, Ed Spooner’s career in Law Enforcement.  It is backed with our Black Tilt A Whirl quilt backing and the batting is our Hobbs Heirloom 80/20.  I quilted it in the Twine design.  I understand it is a present for a very lucky daughter!

Memories…

Share

This is a Memory Quilt made by my sister Iris Melvin to capture memories of Earl Franklin.  His wife, Dorothy asked Iris to make a quilt out of several of Earl’s cowboy shirts as a present for Brian Hunt who was like a son to them.  Iris also incorporated pictures of Earl, Dorothy and Brian along with appliqués of a couple packs of Earl’s trademark Winstons.  She did not sew down the flap of the pocket Earl carried his cigarettes in so she could slip a real pack in the pocket.  The back is a nice comfortable plaid.  Since Earl loved his boots, fishing and Brian, I quilted it in Cowboy Boots, Fish and Teardrops.  Gone but always remembered…
