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!
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!

Our Spring Quilt Show on March 11th was a success! Our thanks to our wonderful quilters who brought their beautiful quilts to display. It was a gorgeous day and I think everyone enjoyed seeing the quilts and meeting fellow quilters. We would like to extend a special thanks to Jeanne Brown, Austin McClamma, Aubrey Tye and Laverne McKenzie for bringing their quilts and helping out. Also exhibited were quilts by Lynda and Iris’s mom, Fannie Maphis and aunt Ruth Barber.
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!
