Blue Water & White Sand Quilt

Share

Katherine Denmark made this adorable quilt for a precious bundle of joy, her grandson Brody!  Calm blue water flows around the beach scene and nautical elements.  The center is surrounded by an eye catching anchor print and the back is also nautically themed.  I quilted it to outline and puff the boats, birds, seashore, beach umbrella and lighthouse in the center with a few shells thrown in just because it’s at the beach.  The blocks are quilted in anchors, sailboat and a lighthouse framed with Feather Rope.  The balance is quilted with the High Seas design.  It has our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting inside to keep Brody nice and warm.  Katherine sewed the binding by hand and did a great job with this beautiful quilt!

Butterfly Window Pane Quilt

Share

Donna Briesacker made this beautiful Window Pane quilt for the daughter of a friend of hers who recently passed away.  The lady loved butterflies and had quite a number of pretty butterfly prints in her fabric stash so Donna made this wonderful quilt for the daughter out of her mom’s fabric!  She backed it with another colorful butterfly print her friend had and I quilted it all in Butterflies for her.  It’s captivating how your perception of where the sunlight is coming from changes depending on which side you view the quilt from.  Donna did a wonderful job with this quilt!

Growth Chart Baby Quilt

I made this baby quilt for Summer Duan and Thomas Hudson’s baby boy,  Tylor Ming Hudson.  The “Little Boys are made of…” panel is from our shop and features a chart to keep track as he grows!  It is framed on either side by more of our cotton fabric in the split rail fence pattern.  I quilted in a whimsical Kites design.  It’s backed in our Sapphire Blue Quilters Blenders quilt backing with Hobbs Heirloom 8/20 batting inside to keep him warm and comfy!

Pinkie Promise Quilt

This adorable little quilt was made for Jennifer Grantham’s granddaughter.  Jennifer made the top with lots of love and I appliquéd the hearts made from clothes that belonged to her MawMaw, Grandaddy and Aunt Jes on the back.  I quilted it in the Ribbon Hearts design then made the binding out of our pink quatrefoil material to match the top.
