This is a Memory Quilt made by my sister Iris Melvin to capture memories of Earl Franklin. His wife, Dorothy asked Iris to make a quilt out of several of Earl’s cowboy shirts as a present for Brian Hunt who was like a son to them. Iris also incorporated pictures of Earl, Dorothy and Brian along with appliqués of a couple packs of Earl’s trademark Winstons. She did not sew down the flap of the pocket Earl carried his cigarettes in so she could slip a real pack in the pocket. The back is a nice comfortable plaid. Since Earl loved his boots, fishing and Brian, I quilted it in Cowboy Boots, Fish and Teardrops. Gone but always remembered…
I made this Football quilt for Becky Simpson and her husband as a present for their young grandson! They selected the different fabrics used in the quilt. It features a gridiron panel surrounded by football squares stripped with Red, White and Blue. I quilted it in football players and footballs. It is backed with plush football fleece and uses our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting to stay snug!
This charming Christmas Quilt was made by Ann Owens. It features a poinsettia print trimmed with the colors of Christmas in a delightful stepped pattern. Inside the quilt is our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting and I quilted it in Christmas Ornaments. A Christmas Quilt for the Holidays, what better gift to warm your heart and soul?

This colorful Four Patch ladder pattern quilt was pieced by Ruth Barber as a gift for Jamie and Christie Maphis. The longer I look at it the more shapes and patterns I see!

My sister, Iris and I made this throw for our aunt, Ruth Barber. She has made so many wonderful quilts for other people so we decided to make one just for her! It’s made in the 3 Dudes Jelly Roll pattern with fabrics from our shop. I quilted it with the Birds In a Bath pattern with lots of spacing to make it soft just like she likes! 🙂
