Song Birds & Sweet Sayings for Mother

Share

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!  🙂

Birds with Lots of Love Quilt

Share

This beautiful quilt was made by Lily Stanley’s grandmother when she was a young child.  Lily has cherished and used it over the years to the point it was coming apart from being washed.  So… Lily decided to restore it herself while adding a bit to the size and she did a wonderful job!  I quilted it for her in Hearts, Stars and Loops.  It’s backed and bound with our 108” Quilters Blenders Yellow Gold quilt backing and is filled with Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting.  Beautiful work Lily!

Majestic Blue Diamond Quilt

Share

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!  🙂

Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Quilt

Share

Mike Taylor asked us to make him a T-shirt quilt out of the motorcycle shirts he’s collected over his years of riding.  So we did!  He picked the colors (Harley!) and we went to work.  My sister, Iris and I pieced the top, then I quilted it with Flames and a Harley Sportster. All of the fabric is from our shop and it’s backed with our 108” wide Quilters Blenders Yellow Gold.  Mike has some really great tees and now they’re preserved so he can enjoy them on his bed.  We can do the same for you!  🙂

Colorful Four Patch Ladder Quilt

This colorful Four Patch ladder pattern quilt was pieced by Ruth Barber as a gift for Jamie and Christie Maphis. The longer I look at it the more shapes and patterns I see! It is backed with our 108” wide Tilt-A-Whirl natural 100% cotton quilt backing and the batting is Hobbs 80/20 Heirloom. I stipple quilted it for her. Beautiful work Aunt Ruth!

Seminole / Crimson Tide Quilt

Share

How do you make a quilt for a man that loves two teams? Incorporate both of them into it of course! I made this quilt for Danny Danford who has always loved Alabama and later became a big fan of FSU. It features the Florida State University Seminole and the University of Alabama Big Al (elephant) mascots surrounded by collegiate fabric from each school. The quilt top also contains fabric with football and tailgating prints with the balance completed in the colors of each team. The back and the white in the top are our 108” wide Tone on Tone White Circles fabric. Hobbs 80/20 Heirloom batting was used and I stipple quilted it. Enjoy Danny!
