I made this quilt featuring 3 ducks swimming on a pond in the center. The ducks were given to me and I thought they really needed to be swimming so I appliquéd them on a pond of our Light Blue Marblecious fabric. The pond is surrounded by squares of a green print for vegetation, brown for the earth (& cattails), a blue water print with white and yellow blenders to tie it all together. It is backed and bound with our Softie Lime Green 108” Quilt Backing and I quilted it in Cattails & Lily Pads with green thread. It made the perfect housewarming gift for my nephew and his wife who bought a lakeside home! 🙂
Patti Spooner covered the field with this winning crib quilt for a little one whose parents pull for different teams! The pattern has a neat gradient effect that ties the Seminole garnet to the Gator blue. The black sashing really frames the colors and just makes them pop! The quilt is backed with our Tilt-A-Whirl Natural quilt backing and filled with Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting (not too heavy but still nice & warm). I quilted it in Swirls and Stars then did the binding in black to match. This quilt is a winner wither way! 🙂
Brenda Nelson’s mother-in-law made the center of this quilt. Brenda brought it in and asked us to finish and quilt it for her. My sister, Iris and I added the stripes, lighthouse plus more red and blue to it. I quilted it all in Diamonds with variegated red, white and blue thread and did the matching binding in red. An American treasure!
This spectacular quilt was made by my aunt, Ruth Barber and sister, Iris Tye Melvin as a gift for me! The design is mine and Iris’s. The gold in the center triangles and the variegated blue fabric in the big blue diamond is accented by touches of metallic gold in the blue swirls. The diamonds are sashed in white and black. A black border frames and sets off the design. The quilt is backed with our 108” Tonal Vineyard Bright Blue quilt backing and I quilted it in an Asian Fan design. It is on our bed now, thank you Aunt Ruth & Iris! 🙂
