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?
