This Quilt was made by Patsy Willis out of little Noah’s onesies and t-shirts. It is surrounded by camo and has the shirt cutouts set in diamonds along with squares with complimenting colors. I quilted it for her in a Hilbarc design. Cute! 🙂
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! 🙂

Lady Bird Quilts made this King size quilt for Janet Dudley from Little Bo Peep squares. They were hand embroidered and hand appliquéd by the aunt of her husband, Bob Dudley about 75 years ago when she was a teenager. Bob’s sister, Melodye Jones had saved and kept them over the years. Janet and Melodye picked out the colors and designed the entire quilt. All of the fabric (except the squares) came from our shop. It is backed in our White on Natural Antique Rose quilt backing with Hobbs Heirloom batting inside. I quilted it in the Ribbon Hearts design. It is wonderful to be able to help preserve the handwork of Bob and Melodye’s aunt and it stay in their family to be enjoyed for many years to come!
This charming Christmas Quilt was made by Ann Owens. It features a poinsettia print trimmed with the colors of Christmas in a delightful stepped pattern. Inside the quilt is our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting and I quilted it in Christmas Ornaments. A Christmas Quilt for the Holidays, what better gift to warm your heart and soul?
I made this queen size patchwork quilt out of scraps from other quilt projects. The blocks are stripped together with our 108” tone on tone white Circles fabric. I quilted it in the Birds In a Bath design and backed it with our purple Curls Swirls quilt backing. It’s on my bed most of the time! 🙂
