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! 🙂
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! 🙂
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!

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!
