Throw for Aunt Ruth

Share

My sister, Iris and I made this throw for our aunt, Ruth Barber.  She has made so many wonderful quilts for other people so we decided to make one just for her!  It’s made in the 3 Dudes Jelly Roll pattern with fabrics from our shop.  I quilted it with the Birds In a Bath pattern with lots of spacing to make it soft just like she likes!  🙂

Quilt of Irises

Share

Sonya Wiley bought this quilt top as an antique and brought it to me to quilt.  The top features Irises of lavender and violet appliquéd onto ivory and dutch white cotton fabric.  After a considerable search we located some lavender material that compliments it perfectly for the backing.  I did the binding with the same fabric.  It is closely stipple quilted with our premium Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting inside.  You have a beautiful quilt Sonya!

Barns & Bridges Quilt

Share

My sister, Iris Tye Melvin and I made this beautiful Barns & Bridges quilt as a wallhanging for Connie Melzer.  It reminds her of the barns and covered bridges of West Virginia.  She bought the material from the Amish while visiting the area.  Connie also picked out the surrounding colors that just make it work!  I quilted it in the pipeline pattern and it’s backed in our 108” wide Quilters Blenders Natural fabric with our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting inside.
