Camellias & Diamonds Quilt!

Share

My sister-in-law, Marilyn Maphis asked me to make a queen size quilt from these puffed Camellia prints which were given to her and my brother, Randolph by a dear friend of theirs. Randolph is a longtime member of the Tallahassee Camellia Society. The prints were individually layered with batting and sewn around to create the puffed effect. When I looked at them, the shape of each print seemed perfect for a diamond, so that’s how I designed the quilt. Each diamond is bordered in a hunter green blended print from our shop interspersed with triangles of pink, green and yellow. The hunter green & pink border frame and compliment the colors of the blooms. Our soft and stable Hobbs Heirloom batting is used inside the quilt sandwich. The same hunter green blended print was used for the backing and binding. I quilted around each flower and quilted additional blooms in the triangles and border. Hopefully the quilt does justice to these beautiful flowers!

Hummingbird Quilt

Austin McClamma made this beautiful king size quilt for his grandmother, Danylu McClamma! It is truly a work of art. The quilt features multicolored applique hummingbirds along with trumpet vine flowers & leaves. The blue hummingbird incorporates fabric from his grandfather’s ties. They are surrounded by batiks, vivid flowers and more hummingbirds. He then bordered the quilt in black which really makes all the colors pop! It’s backed and bound with our Pink Tonal Scroll and filled with soft Hobbs Heirloom batting from our shop for a wonderful feel. I quilted the outlines of the applique hummingbirds and their feathers, the balance is quilted in Hummingbirds & Trumpet Vines. An exquisite quilt Austin!

This Amazing quilt was made by Charlotte Worrell of Bristol, FL.  It features hand embroidered flowers with incredible detail on muslin squares.  The squares are stripped together with tonal vineyard green fabric surrounded by a contrasting paisley and floral print.  I quilted it with butterflies, flowers and grass.

Incredible job, Charlotte!
