Half Square Triangle Birthday Quilt

Share

My aunt, Ruth Barber made this bright eye catching quilt for her niece, Phyllis Pearce.  She used red, white and black since those are Phyllis’s favorite colors.  The backing is Razzle Dazzle Red with our Hobbs Heirloom batting inside and I quilted it in a Twine design.  Bold & Beautiful!

Football Quilt!

Share

Patsy Willis made this great football quilt for her grandson and asked me to quilt it for her.  The quilt features two college teams, Florida State and the University of Florida along with two pro teams the Tampa Bay Bucs and the New Orleans Saints.  The footballs are sewed into the quilt top rather than being appliquéd on.  It’s even backed with a fabric print that is all footballs too!  It has our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting inside and I stipple quilted it so as not to take away from the incredible footballs she made for the top.  First downs to touchdowns, Patsy did a wonderful job with this quilt!  🙂

Purple Twister Quilt

Share

This eye catching twister quilt was made by Othelia Clark.  She made it with fabric she received as a gift as well as some from her stash. Purple is her favorite color and she made this one for her own bed.  It is backed with Free Way Purple quilt backing from our shop and is filled with our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting.  I quilted it for her in the Willowy Weeds design.  Delightful!  🙂

Parasol Lady Quilt

Share

Patty Ray asked me to make a quilt from these “Parasol Lady” blocks which she and her mother-in-law embroidered by hand.  I stripped it together with Quilter’s Blenders Purple from our shop and quilted it tracing around the dolls and filling in with a twine design.  It’s quilted in ecru thread on top and purple on the bottom.  The quilt is filled with our Hobbs Heirloom batting for a soft and natural feel.  I also embroidered the label and did the binding.  The beautiful handwork by Patty and her mother-in-law certainly makes for a beautiful gift for a lucky granddaughter!
