Coca-Cola Panel Throw

Share

My sister, Iris Tye Melvin made this spectacular Coca-Cola throw for her daughter-in-law, Beth Tye who loves Coca-Cola collectibles! The center of the throw is a gorgeous Coca-Cola panel she found surrounded gray blenders sashed with black to capture the look of the weathered siding on the old general store, then red (for Coke!) and finally piano keys made of different fabrics including two Coca-Cola prints. I quilted it in “Soda-n-Caps” for her. The perfect gift for a Coca-Cola girl!

Ducks in Pond Appliqué Quilt!

Share

I made this quilt featuring 3 ducks swimming on a pond in the center. The ducks were given to me and I thought they really needed to be swimming so I appliquéd them on a pond of our Light Blue Marblecious fabric. The pond is surrounded by squares of a green print for vegetation, brown for the earth (& cattails), a blue water print with white and yellow blenders to tie it all together. It is backed and bound with our Softie Lime Green 108” Quilt Backing and I quilted it in Cattails & Lily Pads with green thread. It made the perfect housewarming gift for my nephew and his wife who bought a lakeside home! 🙂

Canoes, Bears & Squares!

Share

Betty George pieced this charming outdoorsy quilt featuring a print with canoes, bears, squirrels, fish and much more… Just the thing to snuggle up under on these cold winter nights! The traditional pattern is perfect for this quilt. Inside it is filled with our soft, not too light, not too heavy Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting. I quilted it in the “Autumn Leaves” design with gold thread and made the binding from the same material used for the back. Great job Betty!

Hearts in Hearts Quilt

Share

This quilt was made for my grandson Tyler Helms and his bride, McKenzie as a wedding gift. My sister, Iris and I pieced the top, she embroidered their last name and the year. I quilted it and did the binding. I also monogrammed the “label” directly on the border fabric. The pattern is our very own signifying his holding her heart within his, surrounding and protecting her. I quilted it in “Twinkling Hearts” and the back is made from our 108” Navy Blue Quilters Blenders. We wish Tyler and Kenzie a lifetime of happiness together!

Dale Guthrie Retirement Quilt

Share

Bonnie NeSmith asked us to make this quilt as a retirement gift for Dalen Guthrie from her staff in the Jackson County Clerk’s Office. The quilt features the embroidered emblems on the leftover polo shirts the staff wore. The balance of the quilt is done in garnet & gold, the colors of Florida State University. It’s filled with our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting and is backed & bound with the same Quilters Blender Gold used in the top. My sister Iris pieced the top, I stipple quilted it and made the binding. We wish Dale a Happy Retirement!

Mare & Foal Quilt

Share

Gwen Cook made this precious western themed quilt featuring a mare and her foal for her granddaughter, Mary Kate. The central square is surrounded by contrasting triangles of paisley prints. She also added some wonderful machine embroidery to personalize the quilt. It’s filled with our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 quilt backing and I quilted it in horses using lime green thread. This is lovely Gwen!
