Batik Strip & Frame Quilt

Share

This gorgeous quilt was made by Patti Spooner.  The depth of the colors contrasting with the black is breathtaking!  It’s backed with our Quilters Blenders Majestic Purple quilt backing and has our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting inside.  I quilted it in a Diamonds design and did the binding.  Wow, Patti, you certainly pieced a beautiful quilt!

Blue Water & White Sand Quilt

Share

Katherine Denmark made this adorable quilt for a precious bundle of joy, her grandson Brody!  Calm blue water flows around the beach scene and nautical elements.  The center is surrounded by an eye catching anchor print and the back is also nautically themed.  I quilted it to outline and puff the boats, birds, seashore, beach umbrella and lighthouse in the center with a few shells thrown in just because it’s at the beach.  The blocks are quilted in anchors, sailboat and a lighthouse framed with Feather Rope.  The balance is quilted with the High Seas design.  It has our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting inside to keep Brody nice and warm.  Katherine sewed the binding by hand and did a great job with this beautiful quilt!

Antique Cars Quilt

Share

The quilt isn’t antique but the cars are! The cars were hand embroidered by Pat Hammitt’s mother-in-law (Mike’s mother) and Pat asked us to make a quilt out of them, so we did.  My sister, Iris and I designed and pieced it using fabrics we carry in the shop, with some help from my daughter, Leigh who sewed many of the piano keys together.  I quilted it in “Flights of Fancy.”  It’s backed with our 108” Turquoise Tilt-A-Whirl quilt backing with premium Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting inside.  Makes you want to go for a ride!

Butterfly Window Pane Quilt

Share

Donna Briesacker made this beautiful Window Pane quilt for the daughter of a friend of hers who recently passed away.  The lady loved butterflies and had quite a number of pretty butterfly prints in her fabric stash so Donna made this wonderful quilt for the daughter out of her mom’s fabric!  She backed it with another colorful butterfly print her friend had and I quilted it all in Butterflies for her.  It’s captivating how your perception of where the sunlight is coming from changes depending on which side you view the quilt from.  Donna did a wonderful job with this quilt!

Puzzle Quilt

Share

Candy Shuff asked us to make a puzzle quilt for her son Alex who picked out the colors and prints he wanted in it (great job!).  My sister, Iris and I pieced both the top and back.  The back of the quilt features an Autism Awareness T-shirt from his school.  All of the fabric came from our shop and it has our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting inside.  I quilted it in a Jigsaw Puzzle design.
