Song Birds & Sweet Sayings for Mother


This lovely throw was made by Melissa Gilley as a gift for her mom on Mother’s day!  Her mom loves birds so it is filled with song birds on which she appliquéd  meaningful bible verses and sweet sayings.  I quilted it in the “Birds In a Bath” design with gold thread and made the binding from our Tonal Vineyard Yellow Green 108” material.  You did a great job Melissa!  🙂

Cross Quilt


Update 8/11/16  –  The Cross Quilt has been sold but you can order one like it!

My sister, Iris and I made this block pattern Cross Quilt from 3 1/2” squares.  It’s backed with backed with our Quilters Blenders Yellow Gold quilt backing and has Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting inside.  I love this batting (that’s why we sell it!).  I quilted it in a Sunburst.  This quilt would make a wonderful gift!  At 63” x 72” it is a large throw and is for sale in our shop for $300.

Sara’s Softball Quilt


My sister, Iris Tye Melvin made this T-shirt quilt for Mary and Ferrell Newsome as a birthday present for their granddaughter, Sara.  It is made from shirts from her years of playing softball and includes a special message from her dad, Jay.  I quilted it in Balls, Bats and Gloves with a row of Softballs at the top and bottom.  It’s backed with our Navy Blue Quilters Blenders quilt backing and is filled with Hobbs Heirloom batting.  An All-Star quilt for an All-Star player!

Red, White & Blue Twister Quilt


This magnificent patriotic quit was made by Othelia Clark!  It features Red, White and Blue prints pieced in a twister pattern.  She backed it with a captivating interlocking print and it uses our Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting.  I quilted it for her in Stars & Loops.  An inspiring quilt for this Memorial Day and every day!

Family Heirloom Quilt


Nancy Allen asked me to quilt this beautiful top made by her mother years ago.  Her sister had given it to her and she wanted to have it quilted in a style similar to the way her mother used to hand quilt.  I quilted it in the Asian Fan design and Nancy was very happy with how it turned out!  🙂  It is filled with our Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting and backed with our Tonal Vineyard Natural Khaki quilt backing.

Black, Blue & Gray Embroidery Quilt


Don’t ever think that a man can’t create a spectacular quilt.  Mike Johns embroidered these amazing designs and then put this quilt top together with his serger!  I quilted around the designs and blocks then added twine with a swirling border.  We used our black Hobbs 80/20 batting and it is backed with Quilters Blenders Black 108” quilt backing.  Mike is a very talented designer and he creates many beautiful original machine embroidery designs!
