Blue Water & White Sand Quilt

Share

Katherine Denmark made this adorable quilt for a precious bundle of joy, her grandson Brody!  Calm blue water flows around the beach scene and nautical elements.  The center is surrounded by an eye catching anchor print and the back is also nautically themed.  I quilted it to outline and puff the boats, birds, seashore, beach umbrella and lighthouse in the center with a few shells thrown in just because it’s at the beach.  The blocks are quilted in anchors, sailboat and a lighthouse framed with Feather Rope.  The balance is quilted with the High Seas design.  It has our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting inside to keep Brody nice and warm.  Katherine sewed the binding by hand and did a great job with this beautiful quilt!

Antique Cars Quilt

Share

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!

Puzzle Quilt

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.

Growth Chart Baby Quilt

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!

Sun Bonnets Quilt

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.

Christmas Tee Golf Throw

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.

Family Tree Quilt

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!
