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!  🙂

Charles Gilley’s Ford Tractor Quilt

Share

Melissa Gilley made this wonderful throw for her father-in-law, Charles Gilley (Chucks’s Dad) for his Christmas present!  Mr. Gilley has been farming since 1960 and loves his Ford tractors.  Melissa found the Ford print, Chuck took the pictures and the project was on!  The barns and corn are appliquéd on solid black which really makes them pop.  We transferred the photos to cotton for her.  The backing is made from two different soft flannels from our shop.  I quilted it in a Diamonds design which reminds me of fields viewed from above and made the binding in Ford blue!

Paula’s Memory Quilt

Share

This beautiful memory quilt was made by Austin McClamma as a very special Christmas gift for his mom, Paula McClamma.  It includes family pictures, wedding invitations and dates of birth and death.  On the quilt he appliquéd his brother Dustin’s initial and birth date along with his own plus many exquisite patterns.  It was a delight and privilege to quilt it for him in “Flights of Fancy,” then do the binding.  The Lilac Tonal Vineyard quilt backing and Hobbs Heirloom batting used in this quilt are from from our shop.  Austin, your work is fabulous and you truly did a wonderful job with this quilt!  🙂

Gerald’s Granny Quilt

Share

I made this quilt for my son, Gerald Danford who asked me to make him a quilt like his “Big Granny” (great grandmother), Audrey Maphis made.  It’s simply all squares from a little of everything with one special block made by my granddaughter (his niece), Alisa Humphrey when she was 8 or 9 years old.  It is backed with our Tonal Vineyard Emerald Green quilt backing and filled with Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting.  I quilted it with the Stars & Wavy Banner design.  It does look a lot like one of Granny’s quilts!  🙂
