Stacey Strickland and his wife asked me to make a T-Shirt Quilt for their daughter, Lauren as a Christmas present. It includes her T-shirts along with some of her dad’s plus a handkerchief and doilies of her grandmother. I put it together with lime green fabric in solid and chevrons. Georgiana Hand did the machine embroidery. It is filled with our Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 Batting for just the right weight and feel. I backed it with our 108” Softie Lime Green Quilt Backing and quilted it in Square Spirals. A great tribute to Lauren’s many interests and her family!
My sister, Iris Tye Melvin made this motorcycle quilt in Harley-Davidson colors for our nephew, Jamie Maphis from T-shirts he has collected from motorcycle rallies and Harley dealers around the country. It also includes some traditional quilt blocks and squares by women who have quilted in our family. It’s filled with our Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting and backed with Quilters Blenders Blue Atoll 108” quilt backing from our shop. I quilted it in Flames and Motorcycles with lime green thread. Gorgeous job sister!
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!
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!
