Parasol Lady Quilt

Share

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!

Song Birds & Sweet Sayings for Mother

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!  🙂

This spectacular quilt was made by my aunt, Ruth Barber and sister, Iris Tye Melvin as a gift for me!  The design is mine and Iris’s.  The gold in the center triangles and the variegated blue fabric in the big blue diamond is accented by touches of metallic gold in the blue swirls.  The diamonds are sashed in white and black.  A black border frames and sets off the design.  The quilt is backed with our 108” Tonal Vineyard Bright Blue quilt backing and I quilted it in an Asian Fan design.  It is on our bed now, thank you Aunt Ruth & Iris!  🙂
