T-Shirt Quilt for Amanda!

Share

Jean Ramos asked me to take her daughter Amanda’s T-Shirts from High School and make them into a quilt with the colors of the Marianna High School. We can do that! My son, Gerald got busy cutting the shirts out then I put them together with purple and gold, the colors of the Bulldogs. The quilt is bordered in the same colors. It is also backed & bound with the gold which is Quilters Blenders Yellow Gold from our shop. We naturally used our soft but stable Hobbs Heirloom batting inside and I stipple quilted it for her. With care these shirts and the memories they represent are now preserved for a lifetime!

Dinosaurs & Primary Colors Brick Wall Quilt

Share

Becky Barch made this adorable quilt from a Dinosaur Panel set in a brick wall of primary colors surrounded by a navy blue snakeskin print. It’s bright and interesting! Our soft, stable Hobbs Heirloom batting is inside. I quilted it in dinosaurs and made the binding from the same navy blue print used for the border. I also made two matching flanged pillow shams for her. This is a colorful quilt Becky! 🙂

School Bus Throw!

Share

My sister Iris and I made this School Bus Throw as a surprise gift for a dear friend and loyal customer, Melissa Gilley. She is a school bus driver who cares so much about “her” kids we thought she needed this! The school bus is pieced and sewn into a blue background with a brown print (for a dirt road!) under the wheels. We sewed in pieces from a couple of school themed prints and I quilted it in “Diamonds” then made the binding in yellow to match the bus. Melissa is just a sweetheart! 🙂

Paige’s T-Shirt Quilt!

Share

Debbie Shepard made this T-Shirt quilt for her daughter, Paige. It showcases and preserves her T-shirts she has collected over the years from school, barrel racing and as an EMT. In keeping with the spirit of western riding Debbie sewed the shirts into a field of Brown Tilt-A-Whirl fabric. Inside, it’s filled with our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting and is backed with the same fabric it’s sashed with. I quilted it in “Wild Horses” and did the binding for her. A special quilt for a special girl made by a very loving and talented mother! 🙂

Child’s Quilt

Share

Patsy Willis made this bright and cheerful child’s quilt with squares of colorful and cheery prints bordered with another print chock full of color! The inside is filled with our soft, supple Hobbs Heirloom batting which we just love, recently I looked at a sample of 80/20 batting from another manufacturer… we’re staying with Hobbs. I quilted this one in Diamonds for her. Someone got a really nice gift!

FSU T-Shirt Quilt!

Share

Beverly Cox brought me this to quilt… An amazing bigger than King Size T-shirt quilt that she and members of her family made for someone they love very much! The quilt top is made from lots of Briana’s T-shirts she’s collected over her time in school. The quilt is framed with an FSU patch print and bordered in black for contrast. The back is a red garnet blenders print and I did the binding in gold for FSU! Inside we used our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting and I quilted it in arrows. Brianna there is no doubt, you have a family that loves you bunches! 🙂
