Patty Ray asked me to make a quilt from these “Parasol Lady” blocks which she and her mother-in-law embroidered by hand. I stripped it together with Quilter’s Blenders Purple from our shop and quilted it tracing around the dolls and filling in with a twine design. It’s quilted in ecru thread on top and purple on the bottom. The quilt is filled with our Hobbs Heirloom batting for a soft and natural feel. I also embroidered the label and did the binding. The beautiful handwork by Patty and her mother-in-law certainly makes for a beautiful gift for a lucky granddaughter!
Don’t ever think that a man can’t create a spectacular quilt. Mike Johns embroidered these amazing designs and then put this quilt top together with his serger! I quilted around the designs and blocks then added twine with a swirling border. We used our black Hobbs 80/20 batting and it is backed with Quilters Blenders Black 108” quilt backing. Mike is a very talented designer and he creates many beautiful original machine embroidery designs!
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!
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.
Lady Bird Quilts made this King size quilt for Janet Dudley from Little Bo Peep squares. They were hand embroidered and hand appliquéd by the aunt of her husband, Bob Dudley about 75 years ago when she was a teenager. Bob’s sister, Melodye Jones had saved and kept them over the years. Janet and Melodye picked out the colors and designed the entire quilt. All of the fabric (except the squares) came from our shop. It is backed in our White on Natural Antique Rose quilt backing with Hobbs Heirloom batting inside. I quilted it in the Ribbon Hearts design. It is wonderful to be able to help preserve the handwork of Bob and Melodye’s aunt and it stay in their family to be enjoyed for many years to come!
This Amazing quilt was made by Charlotte Worrell of Bristol, FL. It features hand embroidered flowers with incredible detail on muslin squares. The squares are stripped together with tonal vineyard green fabric surrounded by a contrasting paisley and floral print. I quilted it with butterflies, flowers and grass.
Incredible job, Charlotte!
Denise Williams asked me to quilt this delightful quilt top that came into her shop. I don’t know who made it originally but it is a work of art! It’s all hand stitched appliqué and hand embroidery. Beautiful work with a fun design. I quilted it with various patterns including butterflies, flowers and acorns & leaves. The backing is our 108” Quilters Blenders Blue Atoll material. Thanks for letting me quilt this, Denise!
