I made this quilt for my oldest daughter, Lisa in 2014. It is a quilt of love with squares made by her great-grandmother, Audrey Maphis, her grandmother Fannie Maphis, her great-aunt, Ruth Barber, her Aunt, Iris Tye Melvin, her daughter, Alisa Humphrey and me. Their names are embroidered on their squares. The quilt is stripped and backed with fabric from our shop. I quilted it in the Hearts & Hands design with a mother’s love! 🙂
Last week I realized that we never featured the cross quilt that I made for my youngest daughter, Leigh in 2014. I designed it with fields of purple, blue, red and green made with squares of 3 different prints in each color surrounding the cross of gold which is echoed in white. It is quilted in HeartLinks and Hilbarc designs with a mother’s love! 🙂
Patty Ray asked me to make a quilt from these “Parasol Lady” blocks which she and her mother-in-law embroidered by hand. I stripped it together with Quilter’s Blenders Purple from our shop and quilted it tracing around the dolls and filling in with a twine design. It’s quilted in ecru thread on top and purple on the bottom. The quilt is filled with our Hobbs Heirloom batting for a soft and natural feel. I also embroidered the label and did the binding. The beautiful handwork by Patty and her mother-in-law certainly makes for a beautiful gift for a lucky granddaughter!
This lovely throw was made by Melissa Gilley as a gift for her mom on Mother’s day! Her mom loves birds so it is filled with song birds on which she appliquéd meaningful bible verses and sweet sayings. I quilted it in the “Birds In a Bath” design with gold thread and made the binding from our Tonal Vineyard Yellow Green 108” material. You did a great job Melissa! 🙂

My sister, Iris and I made this block pattern Cross Quilt from 3 1/2” squares.

This quilt would make a wonderful gift! At 63” x 72” it is a large throw and is for sale in our shop for $300.
My sister, Iris Tye Melvin made this T-shirt quilt for Mary and Ferrell Newsome as a birthday present for their granddaughter, Sara. It is made from shirts from her years of playing softball and includes a special message from her dad, Jay. I quilted it in Balls, Bats and Gloves with a row of Softballs at the top and bottom. It’s backed with our Navy Blue Quilters Blenders quilt backing and is filled with Hobbs Heirloom batting. An All-Star quilt for an All-Star player!
