Ronnie Truett, who happens to be my nephew asked me to make a throw sized military quilt honoring his wife, Kim’s service in the United States Navy as a Christmas present for her. With some help from Ronnie and a little research we were able to piece together her rate & rating insignia. We also added the seals of the Navy and her command. The quilt is stripped together with a Navy themed print then bordered in navy blue and gold. It is backed with our 108” Navy Blue Quilters Blenders quilt backing and filled with Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting from our shop. I quilted it in “Stars & Stripes.” Ronnie, it was pleasure making it for you and Kim we thank you for your service and hope you enjoy your throw! 🙂
Melissa Gilley made this wonderful throw for her father-in-law, Charles Gilley (Chucks’s Dad) for his Christmas present! Mr. Gilley has been farming since 1960 and loves his Ford tractors. Melissa found the Ford print, Chuck took the pictures and the project was on! The barns and corn are appliquéd on solid black which really makes them pop. We transferred the photos to cotton for her. The backing is made from two different soft flannels from our shop. I quilted it in a Diamonds design which reminds me of fields viewed from above and made the binding in Ford blue!
This beautiful memory quilt was made by Austin McClamma as a very special Christmas gift for his mom, Paula McClamma. It includes family pictures, wedding invitations and dates of birth and death. On the quilt he appliquéd his brother Dustin’s initial and birth date along with his own plus many exquisite patterns. It was a delight and privilege to quilt it for him in “Flights of Fancy,” then do the binding. The Lilac Tonal Vineyard quilt backing and Hobbs Heirloom batting used in this quilt are from from our shop. Austin, your work is fabulous and you truly did a wonderful job with this quilt! 🙂

I made this quilt for my son, Gerald Danford who asked me to make him a quilt like his “Big Granny” (great grandmother), Audrey Maphis made. It’s simply all squares from a little of everything with one special block made by my granddaughter (his niece), Alisa Humphrey when she was 8 or 9 years old. It is backed with our Tonal Vineyard Emerald Green quilt backing and filled with Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting. I quilted it with the Stars & Wavy Banner design. It does look a lot like one of Granny’s quilts! 🙂
