Sun Bonnets Quilt

Share

This charming quilt featuring Sunbonnet Sue with different bonnets and dresses was made by Pat Hammitt’s mother-in-law (Mike’s mom).  The different Sunbonnet Sue figures are appliquéd with different stitches.  She also hand embroidered the bonnets, sleeves and shoes. I quilted it in “Flights of Fancy.”  It is backed with Curls Swirls Sky Blue quilt backing and filled with Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting from our shop.

Pinkie Promise Quilt

Share

This adorable little quilt was made for Jennifer Grantham’s granddaughter.  Jennifer made the top with lots of love and I appliquéd the hearts made from clothes that belonged to her MawMaw, Grandaddy and Aunt Jes on the back.  I quilted it in the Ribbon Hearts design then made the binding out of our pink quatrefoil material to match the top.

Patsy Willis made this charming Christmas golf throw as a gift for her son-in-law who loves golf.  The back is pieced together out of a matching golf print.  Filled with our famous Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 quilt batting it’s sure to be soft and warm but not too bulky.  I quilted it in the Hole in One design.

Family Tree Quilt

This unique family tree quilt was made by Sara Thompson as a gift for a family member.  She pieced both the top and the back using a combination of quilting and appliqué techniques.  The back features outlines of the children’ hands with their names.  I used our premium Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting and quilted it in the Pipeline design. A beautiful quit that is sure to be treasured for generations!
