Barbara Drake pieced this catchy quilt! it’s a variation on the Ohio Star pattern. The blocks are sashed with our White on Natural Antique Rose print which we carry in 108” width. Inside we used Hobbs Heirloom batting which is just the perfect weight for many quilts especially in the south. I quilted it in “Twinkling Stars” for her and the quilt is backed in Lime Green Softie quilt backing. Very Nice Barbara! 🙂

Jean Ramos asked me to take her daughter Amanda’s T-Shirts from High School and make them into a quilt with the colors of the Marianna High School. We can do that! My son, Gerald got busy cutting the shirts out then I put them together with purple and gold, the colors of the Bulldogs. The quilt is bordered in the same colors. It is also backed & bound with the gold which is Quilters Blenders Yellow Gold from our shop. We naturally used our soft but stable Hobbs Heirloom batting inside and I stipple quilted it for her. With care these shirts and the memories they represent are now preserved for a lifetime!
Patsy Willis made this fishing themed throw from a set of vivid pillow panels framed with black and surrounded by a gorgeous green print that goes perfectly with the colors in the panels. Inside we used our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting and I quilted it for her in Large Curls. The cool green tones are soothing and beautiful! 🙂
Patti Spooner made this delightful Chaos Quilt! The whimsical design is appliquéd on Navy Blue Quilters Blenders framed by a concentric border of multiple colors. Our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting is used inside and the quilt is backed with Majestic Purple Quilters Blenders from our shop. I quilted it in a square spiral design and made the binding from the same material it’s backed with. You made a lovely quilt Patti! 🙂
My sister-in-law, Marilyn Maphis asked me to make a queen size quilt from these puffed Camellia prints which were given to her and my brother, Randolph by a dear friend of theirs. Randolph is a longtime member of the Tallahassee Camellia Society. The prints were individually layered with batting and sewn around to create the puffed effect. When I looked at them, the shape of each print seemed perfect for a diamond, so that’s how I designed the quilt. Each diamond is bordered in a hunter green blended print from our shop interspersed with triangles of pink, green and yellow. The hunter green & pink border frame and compliment the colors of the blooms. Our soft and stable Hobbs Heirloom batting is used inside the quilt sandwich. The same hunter green blended print was used for the backing and binding. I quilted around each flower and quilted additional blooms in the triangles and border. Hopefully the quilt does justice to these beautiful flowers!
