School Bus Throw!

Share

My sister Iris and I made this School Bus Throw as a surprise gift for a dear friend and loyal customer, Melissa Gilley. She is a school bus driver who cares so much about “her” kids we thought she needed this! The school bus is pieced and sewn into a blue background with a brown print (for a dirt road!) under the wheels. We sewed in pieces from a couple of school themed prints and I quilted it in “Diamonds” then made the binding in yellow to match the bus. Melissa is just a sweetheart! 🙂

Paige’s T-Shirt Quilt!

Share

Debbie Shepard made this T-Shirt quilt for her daughter, Paige. It showcases and preserves her T-shirts she has collected over the years from school, barrel racing and as an EMT. In keeping with the spirit of western riding Debbie sewed the shirts into a field of Brown Tilt-A-Whirl fabric. Inside, it’s filled with our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting and is backed with the same fabric it’s sashed with. I quilted it in “Wild Horses” and did the binding for her. A special quilt for a special girl made by a very loving and talented mother! 🙂

Wide Selection of Beautiful Cotton Fabric!

These days it seems there are fewer and fewer fabric shops. The large chain stores devote much of their floor space to other craft items. The dominant discount department store chain seems to be moving towards eliminating the cutting table from their fabric department. At Lady Bird Quilts we are happy to cut you the whatever amount of fabric you need from our wide selection of quality cotton yardage. We sell only cotton fabric and we keep our shelves well stocked. We also have a nice selection of pre-cuts including Fat Quarters, Jelly Rolls and Layer Cakes. Whether you are a quilter or want colorful, high quality cotton fabric to make dresses or tops we are here to provide what you are looking for at prices that make sense. 🙂

Strips & Squares Freestyle Throw!

Share

Ruth Wade made this catchy looking throw from strips and squares of various prints, mostly cool and natural colors bordered with a colorful batik. It just catches your attention! Inside we used our soft, easy to work with Hobbs Heirloom batting . The throw is backed with our Harvest Gold Tonal Vineyard quilt backing and I quilted it for her in “Curly Swirly” using dark turquoise thread. I love the colors!

If you’ve never been to our friendly Quilt & Fabric shop before, we are located at 2029 Bristol Highway, Quincy, FL. From I-10 take the Greensboro exit (174) and go south 3 miles on State Rd 12 to the center of Greensboro where you will turn left at the traffic light continuing south on State Road 12 for 2 miles. We are located on the left. Look for a fence with a row of American Flags on your left (if you are going south). We are the first driveway on the left past the flags. Just look for the building with the “Fabric & Quilts” sign. See you there! 🙂Card Trick Quilt Block
