Charles Gilley’s Ford Tractor Quilt

Share

Melissa Gilley made this wonderful throw for her father-in-law, Charles Gilley (Chucks’s Dad) for his Christmas present!  Mr. Gilley has been farming since 1960 and loves his Ford tractors.  Melissa found the Ford print, Chuck took the pictures and the project was on!  The barns and corn are appliquéd on solid black which really makes them pop.  We transferred the photos to cotton for her.  The backing is made from two different soft flannels from our shop.  I quilted it in a Diamonds design which reminds me of fields viewed from above and made the binding in Ford blue!

Beach House Quilt

My sister, Iris Tye Melvin made this beach themed quilt for my son and daughter-in-law, Randy and DeeDee Danford.  Embroidery is by both Iris and Tonya Pilcher Banks of Sweet T’s.  I quilted it in “Curl Circle”.  It’s filled with our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting and backed with our 108” Softie Lime Green quilt backing.  It certainly puts you in a salty state of mind, perfect for the beach!  🙂
