Seminole Table Runner!

Share

My aunt, Ruth Barber made this fantastic Florida State Seminole table runner for her niece, Phyllis Pearce and her husband John.  It’s got it all to set the perfect table on game day! FSU licensed fabric (available in our shop), football themed prints and the Garnet & Gold. I  quilted it for her with Footballs & Loops.  Show that team spirit!  🙂

FSU & UF Crib Quilt

Share

Patti Spooner covered the field with this winning crib quilt for a little one whose parents pull for different teams!  The pattern has a neat gradient effect that ties the Seminole garnet to the Gator blue.  The black sashing really frames the colors and just makes them pop!  The quilt is backed with our Tilt-A-Whirl Natural quilt backing and filled with Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting (not too heavy but still nice & warm).  I quilted it in Swirls and Stars then did the binding in black to match.  This quilt is a winner wither way!  🙂

Log Cabin Christmas Quilt

Share

My sister, Iris and I made this throw sized Christmas Quilt in the Log Cabin pattern with a creative holiday border. It’s backed in our Tonal Vineyard Dark Green quilt backing with soft Hobbs Heirloom batting inside.  The binding is done in red to match the top.  Naturally I quilted it in Christmas Bells and Candy Canes!  The throw is 48” x 75” in size and is for sale in our shop for $300, just in time for the Christmas Holidays!

Eight Point Star Quilt Restoration

Share

James Mills brought me this quilt that his Grandmother made many years ago and asked me to restore it.  I was able to save 10 complete blocks, which was as much of the original quilt as possible and made new ones from fabric I was able to recover from damaged squares and complimentary prints.  The new back that James chose is made from our Black Overtone Willowy Flowers 108” quilt backing.  The quilt is filled with soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting.  I quilted it in an Aztec design.  James was giving the quilt to his brother as a birthday present so he would have something special their Grandma made!  🙂
