Summer is Heating Up but Quilting is Still Cool!

Share

Just because it’s getting warm outside doesn’t mean you need to put your sewing aside. In many ways it’s an ideal time to piece a quilt, the rush and bustle of the Holiday season is months away, sew while you have a chance. It may be warm or even hot outside but air conditioning can make it really tempting to sew in the cool… Kids getting out of school means sometimes you just need to give them something to do and escape to your sewing room for a little “me” time. 🙂

Pink & Turquoise Jelly Roll Throw!

Share

Sharon Hauke made this adorable jelly roll throw for her daughter. It’s made from a jelly roll of vibrant pink prints connected by turquoise squares. The throw is backed and bound with a wavy striped turquoise print from our shop. Inside the quilt is our Hobbs Heirloom batting which makes it nice and soft without being too heavy. I quilted it in a loose stipple for her and did the binding. A fun and delightful project!

Lighthouse Throw!

I made this Lighthouse Throw with my sister, Iris. It’s made with a pretty lighthouse print from our shop with a sky blue print above and beach sand below. I quilted it in clouds for the top, waves in the middle and seashells at the bottom. The batting inside is Hobbs Heirloom for a comfortable weight and feel. It’s for sale in our shop for $300. 🙂

Anniversary Cross Quilt

Tyler Sadler asked us to make this Cross Quilt as a gift for his wife on their 2nd Anniversary, which we were happy to do! Their names are embroidered below the cross and we incorporated the colors he asked for into the quilt. It’s backed and bound with our Quilters Blenders Yellow Gold quilt backing. The batting used is our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 for a nice weigh and feel. I quilted it in sunbeams emanating from the cross in gold thread. We make these to order, a throw in this design is $300.
