Conner’s T-Shirt Quilt!

Stacey Strickland and his wife asked me to make a T-Shirt Quilt for their son, Conner as a Christmas gift at the same time they ordered one for their daughter, Lauren. It’s made of his baseball jerseys and t-shirts plus to make it extra special it also includes some from his dad and sister. This queen size quilt is put together with purple and gold cotton fabric from our shop and backed with our 108” Quilters Blenders Yellow Gold quilt backing. It’s filled with our Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting which is warm without being too heavy. My sister, Iris Tye Melvin did the machine embroidery of Conner’s name and date of birth. I quilted it in an Aztec design. A great way to preserve wonderful family memories!

Medical Tie Quilt

Poca Mae and Dan Hatcher asked us to make a quilt as a Christmas gift for their son who is a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine from the medical themed ties he wore to medical school. So, we did! My sister, Iris Tye Melvin helped me piece the quilt and Georgiana Hand did the embroidery. We used garnet & gold for the base colors and appliquéd the ties on the gold blocks. It is sashed in black for contrast and backed with our 108” wide Marblecious Brown quilt backing. I quilted it in in a medical design and put a black binding on it. The perfect way to preserve Doctor Hatcher’s tie collection!

State Birds & Flowers Quilt

Share

Carla Nix asked me if I could make quilt for her father, St. Elmo Harrison from a set of squares beautifully hand embroidered with all 50 states, the year of statehood, the state bird and the state flower. Mr. Harrison had purchased the set of squares previously with the intention of having a quilt made from them. I was glad to make it for them! I sashed it with red and blue Quilters Blenders fabric from our shop, bordered with one of our patriotic flag prints then bound it with red after quilting. The quilt is filled with Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting for a soft comfortable feel and ideal weight. I stipple quilted it with Ecru thread. This quilt is a queen size tribute to America! 🙂
