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.

Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Quilt

Share

Mike Taylor asked us to make him a T-shirt quilt out of the motorcycle shirts he’s collected over his years of riding.  So we did!  He picked the colors (Harley!) and we went to work.  My sister, Iris and I pieced the top, then I quilted it with Flames and a Harley Sportster. All of the fabric is from our shop and it’s backed with our 108” wide Quilters Blenders Yellow Gold.  Mike has some really great tees and now they’re preserved so he can enjoy them on his bed.  We can do the same for you!  🙂

Growth Chart Baby Quilt

Share

I made this baby quilt for Summer Duan and Thomas Hudson’s baby boy,  Tylor Ming Hudson.  The “Little Boys are made of…” panel is from our shop and features a chart to keep track as he grows!  It is framed on either side by more of our cotton fabric in the split rail fence pattern.  I quilted in a whimsical Kites design.  It’s backed in our Sapphire Blue Quilters Blenders quilt backing with Hobbs Heirloom 8/20 batting inside to keep him warm and comfy!

Sun Bonnets Quilt

Share

This charming quilt featuring Sunbonnet Sue with different bonnets and dresses was made by Pat Hammitt’s mother-in-law (Mike’s mom).  The different Sunbonnet Sue figures are appliquéd with different stitches.  She also hand embroidered the bonnets, sleeves and shoes. I quilted it in “Flights of Fancy.”  It is backed with Curls Swirls Sky Blue quilt backing and filled with Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting from our shop.
