X’s and O’s Heirloom Quilt

Share

This quilt was pieced by Carolyn Johnson’s grandmother.  The top is handsewn and is between 75 and 100 years old.  It is a delightful variation  of the X’s and O’s pattern.  Carolyn brought it to us to finish so she could display and enjoy it.  I quilted it in the Flights of Fancy design and the binding is made of material with a teacup print. It is backed with our White on Natural Antique Rose 108″ quilt backing and the batting is our Hobbs Heirloom batting which gives it the perfect weight and feel.  A beautiful quilt to be enjoyed for generations!

Quilt of Irises

Share

Sonya Wiley bought this quilt top as an antique and brought it to me to quilt.  The top features Irises of lavender and violet appliquéd onto ivory and dutch white cotton fabric.  After a considerable search we located some lavender material that compliments it perfectly for the backing.  I did the binding with the same fabric.  It is closely stipple quilted with our premium Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting inside.  You have a beautiful quilt Sonya!

Barns & Bridges Quilt

Share

My sister, Iris Tye Melvin and I made this beautiful Barns & Bridges quilt as a wallhanging for Connie Melzer.  It reminds her of the barns and covered bridges of West Virginia.  She bought the material from the Amish while visiting the area.  Connie also picked out the surrounding colors that just make it work!  I quilted it in the pipeline pattern and it’s backed in our 108” wide Quilters Blenders Natural fabric with our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting inside.
