Ducks in Pond Appliqué Quilt!

Share

I made this quilt featuring 3 ducks swimming on a pond in the center. The ducks were given to me and I thought they really needed to be swimming so I appliquéd them on a pond of our Light Blue Marblecious fabric. The pond is surrounded by squares of a green print for vegetation, brown for the earth (& cattails), a blue water print with white and yellow blenders to tie it all together. It is backed and bound with our Softie Lime Green 108” Quilt Backing and I quilted it in Cattails & Lily Pads with green thread. It made the perfect housewarming gift for my nephew and his wife who bought a lakeside home! 🙂

John Deere Christmas Tree Quilt!

Share

This is my Christmas Quilt this year. I pieced it with help from my sister Iris. It’s a John Deere Christmas Tree! The quilt features a small panel with Santa on his John Deere Tractor in the middle of the tree with squares that include The Grinch and Christmas Lights. Santa pulling his sleigh with a John Deere, Christmas village, star, stocking and candy canes are all appliqué. It is bordered with a holly print then backed and bound with the same Yellow Gold Quilters Blenders fabric used in the top to make the John Deere yellow. The batting is our famous Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 and I quilted it in Twinkling Snow Flakes. HoHoHo! Have a Merry Christmas everyone!

Medical Tie Quilt

Share

Poca Mae and Dan Hatcher asked us to make a quilt as a Christmas gift for their son who is a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine from the medical themed ties he wore to medical school. So, we did! My sister, Iris Tye Melvin helped me piece the quilt and Georgiana Hand did the embroidery. We used garnet & gold for the base colors and appliquéd the ties on the gold blocks. It is sashed in black for contrast and backed with our 108” wide Marblecious Brown quilt backing. I quilted it in in a medical design and put a black binding on it. The perfect way to preserve Doctor Hatcher’s tie collection!
