Paula’s Memory Quilt

Share

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.

Family Tree Quilt

This unique family tree quilt was made by Sara Thompson as a gift for a family member.  She pieced both the top and the back using a combination of quilting and appliqué techniques.  The back features outlines of the children’ hands with their names.  I used our premium Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting and quilted it in the Pipeline design. A beautiful quit that is sure to be treasured for generations!

Cap Quilt

Linda Neel asked my sister, Iris and I to make this cap quilt for her husband Bill as a Christmas present.  She brought us all of the old caps he had saved from his years of farming and the wonderful Coca Cola printed fabric (Bill loves Coca Cola!).  The remaining fabric including the corn and peanuts is from our shop.  We appliquéd the cap with the Coca Cola patch.  I quilted a tractor into four blocks and stipple quilted the balance.  Linda did surprise Bill with his Christmas present this year!  🙂
