Ann Owens made this beautiful quilt featuring appliqué tea pots, cups, saucers and flowers. She did a wonderful job with it! It’s filled with our “just the right weight” Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting and I quilted it in the “Fancy 3” design. These colors work so well together!
Poca Mae and Dan Hatcher asked us to make a quilt as a Christmas gift for their son who is a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine from the medical themed ties he wore to medical school. So, we did! My sister, Iris Tye Melvin helped me piece the quilt and Georgiana Hand did the embroidery. We used garnet & gold for the base colors and appliquéd the ties on the gold blocks. It is sashed in black for contrast and backed with our 108” wide Marblecious Brown quilt backing. I quilted it in in a medical design and put a black binding on it. The perfect way to preserve Doctor Hatcher’s tie collection!
Austin McClamma made this beautiful king size quilt for his grandmother, Danylu McClamma! It is truly a work of art. The quilt features multicolored applique hummingbirds along with trumpet vine flowers & leaves. The blue hummingbird incorporates fabric from his grandfather’s ties. They are surrounded by batiks, vivid flowers and more hummingbirds. He then bordered the quilt in black which really makes all the colors pop! It’s backed and bound with our Pink Tonal Scroll and filled with soft Hobbs Heirloom batting from our shop for a wonderful feel. I quilted the outlines of the applique hummingbirds and their feathers, the balance is quilted in Hummingbirds & Trumpet Vines. An exquisite quilt Austin!

Judy Bentley pieced this special quilt as a gift for a friend who is a Navy Veteran. She used a navy blue and gray theme and appliqued the classic anchor on top. The back is made from a colorful license plate print. I quilted it in “Eddies” with the Navy Seal in the eye of the anchor. A wonderful present and tribute!
