My sister, Iris Tye Melvin made this quilt as a gift for for her grandson, Jeffery Tye and embroidered it with his name and the year. I quilted it in the “Curl Arc” design. It is made entirely from colorful prints and batiks that we carry in our shop. The backing is our 108” Tilt-A-Whirl Turquoise and the quilt is filled with soft Hobbs 80/20 Heirloom batting. Love the colors, great job sister! 🙂
My sister, Iris Tye Melvin made this beach themed quilt for my son and daughter-in-law, Randy and DeeDee Danford. Embroidery is by both Iris and Tonya Pilcher Banks of Sweet T’s. I quilted it in “Curl Circle”. It’s filled with our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting and backed with our 108” Softie Lime Green quilt backing. It certainly puts you in a salty state of mind, perfect for the beach! 🙂
These beautiful squares were hand embroidered by Pat Hammitt’s mother-in-law. We put them together for her in this quilt. I quilted around each circle of linked hearts, then quilted the borders in a complimentary design. The quilt is backed with our Tonal Medallion Bright Green 108” quilt backing. I love the embroidery and cross stitch!
Pat Hammitt’s mother-in-law hand embroidered and painted these beautiful squares with adorable dolls from around the world then stripped them together with pink fabric. I added a border of Tonal Vineyard Yellow and used Tonal Scroll Wine to make the back and binding for Pat & Mike. The squares are quilted in scroll and twine designs with leaves running thru the sashing. I just love the colors she used in her embroidery! 🙂
I made this quilt for my oldest daughter, Lisa in 2014. It is a quilt of love with squares made by her great-grandmother, Audrey Maphis, her grandmother Fannie Maphis, her great-aunt, Ruth Barber, her Aunt, Iris Tye Melvin, her daughter, Alisa Humphrey and me. Their names are embroidered on their squares. The quilt is stripped and backed with fabric from our shop. I quilted it in the Hearts & Hands design with a mother’s love! 🙂
Patty Ray asked me to make a quilt from these “Parasol Lady” blocks which she and her mother-in-law embroidered by hand. I stripped it together with Quilter’s Blenders Purple from our shop and quilted it tracing around the dolls and filling in with a twine design. It’s quilted in ecru thread on top and purple on the bottom. The quilt is filled with our Hobbs Heirloom batting for a soft and natural feel. I also embroidered the label and did the binding. The beautiful handwork by Patty and her mother-in-law certainly makes for a beautiful gift for a lucky granddaughter!
