Deer in the Attic Window Quilt

Share

Jo Johns made this amazingly realistic Attic Window quilt from a Realtree deer panel and three solid colors to produce the attic window effect.  It’s backed with our 108″ Tonal Vineyard Natural Khaki quilt backing and has Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting inside.  I stipple quilted it in a large, loose pattern.  What a great gift!

Indian Throw

Share

I made this throw for my grandson, Zack Humphrey.  He likes this proud indian as much as I do so I framed the panel in special colors from our stock and backed it with our 108” Flowy Gray quilt backing. I quilted it in the Flying Stars Chevron design and it has our Hobbs Heirloom batting inside to keep him warm on those late nights in his big camo recliner!  🙂

Butterfly Window Pane Quilt

Share

Donna Briesacker made this beautiful Window Pane quilt for the daughter of a friend of hers who recently passed away.  The lady loved butterflies and had quite a number of pretty butterfly prints in her fabric stash so Donna made this wonderful quilt for the daughter out of her mom’s fabric!  She backed it with another colorful butterfly print her friend had and I quilted it all in Butterflies for her.  It’s captivating how your perception of where the sunlight is coming from changes depending on which side you view the quilt from.  Donna did a wonderful job with this quilt!

Family Tree Quilt

Share

This unique family tree quilt was made by Sara Thompson as a gift for a family member.  She pieced both the top and the back using a combination of quilting and appliqué techniques.  The back features outlines of the children’ hands with their names.  I used our premium Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting and quilted it in the Pipeline design. A beautiful quit that is sure to be treasured for generations!

Cap Quilt

Share

Linda Neel asked my sister, Iris and I to make this cap quilt for her husband Bill as a Christmas present.  She brought us all of the old caps he had saved from his years of farming and the wonderful Coca Cola printed fabric (Bill loves Coca Cola!).  The remaining fabric including the corn and peanuts is from our shop.  We appliquéd the cap with the Coca Cola patch.  I quilted a tractor into four blocks and stipple quilted the balance.  Linda did surprise Bill with his Christmas present this year!  🙂

Ducks Quilt

Share

Connie Melzer asked us to make this quilt as a gift for a special friend of theirs.  She provided the panel and picked out the colors.  Iris and I pieced the top and surrounded the ducks with split rail fence patchwork.  All of the fabric except the panel is fabric we carry at Lady Bird Quilts.  It is backed in Tilt A Whirl Brown and I quilted it in a loose stipple design.
