Hummingbird Quilt

Share

Austin McClamma made this beautiful king size quilt for his grandmother, Danylu McClamma! It is truly a work of art. The quilt features multicolored applique hummingbirds along with trumpet vine flowers & leaves. The blue hummingbird incorporates fabric from his grandfather’s ties. They are surrounded by batiks, vivid flowers and more hummingbirds. He then bordered the quilt in black which really makes all the colors pop! It’s backed and bound with our Pink Tonal Scroll and filled with soft Hobbs Heirloom batting from our shop for a wonderful feel. I quilted the outlines of the applique hummingbirds and their feathers, the balance is quilted in Hummingbirds & Trumpet Vines. An exquisite quilt Austin!

Altha Wildcats Quilt

Rose Mary Swilley made this fantastic T-Shirt quilt for her husband from his high school Baseball and Basketball jerseys. She did an excellent job putting it together with a black drop shadow effect for the individual shirts. It’s a wonderful way to preserve treasured shirts and keep those memories alive! I stipple quilted it in purple in keeping with the school colors and bound it in black to frame the shirts.

Jeanne Brown made this bold Red, White & Blue quilt for her niece who joined the Army! The top is made from strips of patriotic prints and bordered with familiar patriotic citations. I quilted it in the “Star Spangled” design with ecru thread. Just the thing to show off for the 4th of July!

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!
