Patriotic Strip Quilt

Share

Jeanne Brown made this bold Red, White & Blue quilt for her niece who joined the Army! The top is made from strips of patriotic prints and bordered with familiar patriotic citations. I quilted it in the “Star Spangled” design with ecru thread. Just the thing to show off for the 4th of July!

“Warm” 3 Dudes Quilt for Page

Share

I made this queen size quilt for my husband, Page who likes the pattern and wanted a “really warm” quilt for winter. It is the 3 “Dudes” pattern made from 2 ½” strips. I bordered it with piano keys, then backed and bound it with our Quilters Blenders Blue Atoll 108” quilt backing. It’s quilted in the Diamonds design. I used a medium high loft poly-fill batting and….. it’s really warm! So warm that he only wants to sleep under it on the coldest nights! Of course we don’t have too many of those in Florida but he loves looking at it anyway. 🙂

Lauren’s T-Shirt Quilt!

Share

Stacey Strickland and his wife asked me to make a T-Shirt Quilt for their daughter, Lauren as a Christmas present. It includes her T-shirts along with some of her dad’s plus a handkerchief and doilies of her grandmother. I put it together with lime green fabric in solid and chevrons. Georgiana Hand did the machine embroidery. It is filled with our Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 Batting for just the right weight and feel. I backed it with our 108” Softie Lime Green Quilt Backing and quilted it in Square Spirals. A great tribute to Lauren’s many interests and her family!

My sister, Iris Tye Melvin made this motorcycle quilt in Harley-Davidson colors for our nephew, Jamie Maphis from T-shirts he has collected from motorcycle rallies and Harley dealers around the country. It also includes some traditional quilt blocks and squares by women who have quilted in our family. It’s filled with our Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting and backed with Quilters Blenders Blue Atoll 108” quilt backing from our shop. I quilted it in Flames and Motorcycles with lime green thread. Gorgeous job sister!

Tie Quilt – Robert Glyn Robertson

Share

Beverly Pritchard asked me to make a quilt with her Daddy’s ties and shirts as a gift for her mom. I was happy to make it for her. In addition to the ties on the shirts it is bordered on two sides with tie “piano keys.” It is filled with our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting and backed with one of our many Tonal Vineyard quilt backings. I quilted it in Diamonds. Tie quilts are a great way to save the ties and shirts of a loved one and preserve precious memories!

Ruth’s Diamonds & Nine Patch Quilt

Share

My Aunt, Ruth Barber made this wonderful quilt for her great-nephew, Tullis Tye.  It is a nine patch variation that creates an eye catching pattern of diamonds.  I quilted it in a twine design and it’s backed with our Blue Marbleicious quilt backing.  It also has our Hobbs Heirloom batting inside which is just the right weight for a quilt you’re going to use.  She did a great job with this quilt and Tullis is lucky to have her for a great aunt!  🙂
