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!

Paula’s Memory Quilt

This beautiful memory quilt was made by Austin McClamma as a very special Christmas gift for his mom, Paula McClamma.  It includes family pictures, wedding invitations and dates of birth and death.  On the quilt he appliquéd his brother Dustin’s initial and birth date along with his own plus many exquisite patterns.  It was a delight and privilege to quilt it for him in “Flights of Fancy,” then do the binding.  The Lilac Tonal Vineyard quilt backing and Hobbs Heirloom batting used in this quilt are from from our shop.  Austin, your work is fabulous and you truly did a wonderful job with this quilt!  🙂

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!  🙂

Pinkie Promise Quilt

This adorable little quilt was made for Jennifer Grantham’s granddaughter.  Jennifer made the top with lots of love and I appliquéd the hearts made from clothes that belonged to her MawMaw, Grandaddy and Aunt Jes on the back.  I quilted it in the Ribbon Hearts design then made the binding out of our pink quatrefoil material to match the top.
