The quilt isn’t antique but the cars are! The cars were hand embroidered by Pat Hammitt’s mother-in-law (Mike’s mother) and Pat asked us to make a quilt out of them, so we did. My sister, Iris and I designed and pieced it using fabrics we carry in the shop, with some help from my daughter, Leigh who sewed many of the piano keys together. I quilted it in “Flights of Fancy.” It’s backed with our 108” Turquoise Tilt-A-Whirl quilt backing with premium Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting inside. Makes you want to go for a ride!
Candy Shuff asked us to make a puzzle quilt for her son Alex who picked out the colors and prints he wanted in it (great job!). My sister, Iris and I pieced both the top and back. The back of the quilt features an Autism Awareness T-shirt from his school. All of the fabric came from our shop and it has our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting inside. I quilted it in a Jigsaw Puzzle design.
I made this baby quilt for Summer Duan and Thomas Hudson’s baby boy, Tylor Ming Hudson. The “Little Boys are made of…” panel is from our shop and features a chart to keep track as he grows! It is framed on either side by more of our cotton fabric in the split rail fence pattern. I quilted in a whimsical Kites design. It’s backed in our Sapphire Blue Quilters Blenders quilt backing with Hobbs Heirloom 8/20 batting inside to keep him warm and comfy!
This charming quilt featuring Sunbonnet Sue with different bonnets and dresses was made by Pat Hammitt’s mother-in-law (Mike’s mom). The different Sunbonnet Sue figures are appliquéd with different stitches. She also hand embroidered the bonnets, sleeves and shoes. I quilted it in “Flights of Fancy.” It is backed with Curls Swirls Sky Blue quilt backing and filled with Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting from our shop.
Patsy Willis made this charming Christmas golf throw as a gift for her son-in-law who loves golf. The back is pieced together out of a matching golf print. Filled with our famous Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 quilt batting it’s sure to be soft and warm but not too bulky. I quilted it in the Hole in One design.
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!
