Tie Quilt – Robert Glyn Robertson

Share

Beverly Pritchard asked me to make a quilt with her Daddy’s ties and shirts as a gift for her mom. I was happy to make it for her. In addition to the ties on the shirts it is bordered on two sides with tie “piano keys.” It is filled with our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting and backed with one of our many Tonal Vineyard quilt backings. I quilted it in Diamonds. Tie quilts are a great way to save the ties and shirts of a loved one and preserve precious memories!

Melissa’s Irish Chain Quilt!

Share

Melissa Gilley pieced this Irish Chain quilt in warm, sunny colors. She did a very nice job with this quilt and hopefully she’ll keep this one to enjoy for herself! The quilt is filled with our Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting for just the right weight and feel. I quilted it in a diamond design with wine color thread and then made the binding from the same material as the backing. We are proud that Melissa has made Lady Bird Quilts her second home where quilting is concerned!

Summer In The Park Quilt

This light and cheery quilt was pieced by Betty George. It is a five strip block with a beautiful turquoise theme. I bordered it in gray and turquoise prints provided by Betty to make it queen size. The quilt is filled with our “just the right weight” Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting and backed with our Flowy Gray 108” quilt backing. I quilted it in the Flights of Fancy design. This quilt fills your mind with thoughts of spring & summer. It is a beautiful quilt, Betty!

This striking quilt was made by Kimberly Santiago.  It features Doubly Striped Half Square Triangle Blocks surrounded by white and sashed with black.  The back is made from our Flowy Gray 108″ quilt backing and the batting is our Hobbs Heirloom 80/20.  I quilted it in “Willowy Weeds” with ecru thread.  Great job Kimberly!

Jeanne Brown made this delightful throw from half square triangles and rectangles cut from a variety of bright prints and colors.  It’s filled with our Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting for just the right weight.  I quilted it in “Vines with Flowers” with orange thread. Jeanne did wonderful job with this, it’s eye-catching!
