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!

Hummingbird Quilt

Share

Austin McClamma made this beautiful king size quilt for his grandmother, Danylu McClamma! It is truly a work of art. The quilt features multicolored applique hummingbirds along with trumpet vine flowers & leaves. The blue hummingbird incorporates fabric from his grandfather’s ties. They are surrounded by batiks, vivid flowers and more hummingbirds. He then bordered the quilt in black which really makes all the colors pop! It’s backed and bound with our Pink Tonal Scroll and filled with soft Hobbs Heirloom batting from our shop for a wonderful feel. I quilted the outlines of the applique hummingbirds and their feathers, the balance is quilted in Hummingbirds & Trumpet Vines. An exquisite quilt Austin!

Lauren’s T-Shirt Quilt!

Stacey Strickland and his wife asked me to make a T-Shirt Quilt for their daughter, Lauren as a Christmas present. It includes her T-shirts along with some of her dad’s plus a handkerchief and doilies of her grandmother. I put it together with lime green fabric in solid and chevrons. Georgiana Hand did the machine embroidery. It is filled with our Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 Batting for just the right weight and feel. I backed it with our 108” Softie Lime Green Quilt Backing and quilted it in Square Spirals. A great tribute to Lauren’s many interests and her family!
