FSU & UF Crib Quilt

Share

Patti Spooner covered the field with this winning crib quilt for a little one whose parents pull for different teams!  The pattern has a neat gradient effect that ties the Seminole garnet to the Gator blue.  The black sashing really frames the colors and just makes them pop!  The quilt is backed with our Tilt-A-Whirl Natural quilt backing and filled with Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting (not too heavy but still nice & warm).  I quilted it in Swirls and Stars then did the binding in black to match.  This quilt is a winner wither way!  🙂

Eight Point Star Quilt Restoration

Share

James Mills brought me this quilt that his Grandmother made many years ago and asked me to restore it.  I was able to save 10 complete blocks, which was as much of the original quilt as possible and made new ones from fabric I was able to recover from damaged squares and complimentary prints.  The new back that James chose is made from our Black Overtone Willowy Flowers 108” quilt backing.  The quilt is filled with soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting.  I quilted it in an Aztec design.  James was giving the quilt to his brother as a birthday present so he would have something special their Grandma made!  🙂

Batik Stained Glass Quilt

Maureen Meers made this delightful stained glass window quilt from colorful batiks for her granddaughter who is in her first year at college.  Her granddaughter plays the trumpet in the band so I quilted it in musical notes and trumpets.  The backing is our Softie Lime Green 108” wide fabric.  You did a wonderful job Maureen!  🙂
