Dolls From Around The World Quilt

Share

Pat Hammitt’s mother-in-law hand embroidered and painted these beautiful squares with adorable dolls from around the world then stripped them together with pink fabric.  I added a border of Tonal Vineyard Yellow and used Tonal Scroll Wine to make the back and binding for Pat & Mike.  The squares are quilted in scroll and twine designs with leaves running thru the sashing.  I just love the colors she used in her embroidery!  🙂

Ocean & Beach Throw

Share

I made this one for myself!  The throw features dolphins, whales, salt water fish and a sea turtle with cool ocean colors created with Marblecious and Quilters Blenders prints from our shop.  There is also a bit of the beach!  It’s backed with our Sapphire Blue Quilters Blenders quilt backing.  I quilted it in Seashells & Sand Dollars. Sometimes you just need to think about the beach…  🙂

Song Birds & Sweet Sayings for Mother

Share

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!  🙂

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.

Indian Throw

Share

I made this throw for my grandson, Zack Humphrey.  He likes this proud indian as much as I do so I framed the panel in special colors from our stock and backed it with our 108” Flowy Gray quilt backing. I quilted it in the Flying Stars Chevron design and it has our Hobbs Heirloom batting inside to keep him warm on those late nights in his big camo recliner!  🙂
