This quilt was made for my grandson Tyler Helms and his bride, McKenzie as a wedding gift. My sister, Iris and I pieced the top, she embroidered their last name and the year. I quilted it and did the binding. I also monogrammed the “label” directly on the border fabric. The pattern is our very own signifying his holding her heart within his, surrounding and protecting her. I quilted it in “Twinkling Hearts” and the back is made from our 108” Navy Blue Quilters Blenders. We wish Tyler and Kenzie a lifetime of happiness together!
Bonnie NeSmith asked us to make this quilt as a retirement gift for Dalen Guthrie from her staff in the Jackson County Clerk’s Office. The quilt features the embroidered emblems on the leftover polo shirts the staff wore. The balance of the quilt is done in garnet & gold, the colors of Florida State University. It’s filled with our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting and is backed & bound with the same Quilters Blender Gold used in the top. My sister Iris pieced the top, I stipple quilted it and made the binding. We wish Dale a Happy Retirement!
Gwen Cook made this precious western themed quilt featuring a mare and her foal for her granddaughter, Mary Kate. The central square is surrounded by contrasting triangles of paisley prints. She also added some wonderful machine embroidery to personalize the quilt. It’s filled with our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 quilt backing and I quilted it in horses using lime green thread. This is lovely Gwen!

Stacey Strickland and his wife asked me to make a T-Shirt Quilt for their son, Conner as a Christmas gift at the same time they ordered one for their daughter, Lauren. It’s made of his baseball jerseys and t-shirts plus to make it extra special it also includes some from his dad and sister. This queen size quilt is put together with purple and gold cotton fabric from our shop and backed with our 108” Quilters Blenders Yellow Gold quilt backing. It’s filled with our Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting which is warm without being too heavy. My sister, Iris Tye Melvin did the machine embroidery of Conner’s name and date of birth. I quilted it in an Aztec design. A great way to preserve wonderful family memories!
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!
