Purple & Green Throw!

Share

Libby Shepard made this Purple & Green throw that just pops with color! She used two alternating blocks that incorporate both appliqué and embroidery. The blocks are framed by concentric borders of white, purple and lime green. Our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting is inside the quilt and it’s backed with our Tilt-A-Whirl Purple quilt backing. I quilted it in “Flights of Fancy” and made the binding from the same material it’s backed with. This throw just smiles at you and seems to say “Spring is Here!” 🙂

Strip Diamonds Quilt!

Share

Barbara Wiggins made this adorable quilt from strips. Square up your blocks cutting at a 45 degree angle to your strips then sew them to the next block with the strips meeting at right angles. This technique makes a spectacularly interesting and colorful quilt! It’s filled with our wonderful Hobbs Heirloom batting and backed with Turquoise Tonal Vineyard 108” Quilt Backing which we stock. I quilted it for her in “Double Bubbles” with Bahama Blue thread and made the binding to match the back. A fun way to make a great quilt!

Ohio Star Variation!

Share

Barbara Drake pieced this catchy quilt! it’s a variation on the Ohio Star pattern. The blocks are sashed with our White on Natural Antique Rose print which we carry in 108” width. Inside we used Hobbs Heirloom batting which is just the perfect weight for many quilts especially in the south. I quilted it in “Twinkling Stars” for her and the quilt is backed in Lime Green Softie quilt backing. Very Nice Barbara! 🙂

Christmas Appliqué Quilt

Share

Ann Owens made this precious Christmas Appliqué Quilt. It features wonderful appliquéd Christmas scenes sashed with Christmas trees, stars and gifts. The more you look, the more you see in the appliqué blocks! Inside the quilt I used our cozy Hobbs Heirloom batting and it is backed with our Quilters Blenders Ocean Blue quilt backing. I quilted it in Christmas Ornaments for her. I think Ann is very talented! 🙂
