This is a Memory Quilt made by my sister Iris Melvin to capture memories of Earl Franklin. His wife, Dorothy asked Iris to make a quilt out of several of Earl’s cowboy shirts as a present for Brian Hunt who was like a son to them. Iris also incorporated pictures of Earl, Dorothy and Brian along with appliqués of a couple packs of Earl’s trademark Winstons. She did not sew down the flap of the pocket Earl carried his cigarettes in so she could slip a real pack in the pocket. The back is a nice comfortable plaid. Since Earl loved his boots, fishing and Brian, I quilted it in Cowboy Boots, Fish and Teardrops. Gone but always remembered…
I made this special quilt memory for Joslann’s first birthday at the request of her mother, Anna Martin and her grandmother Joanne Parish. It was made from her first year clothes, including her christening dress. The outfits are appliqued on. All of the fabric used in this quilt is all from our shop including the Quilters Blenders Light Pink quilt backing. It is quilted it in the Ribbon Hearts design, which I love!
This wonderful quilt was designed and pieced by Lynda Britt and Iris Melvin for Walt Childs. It incorporates previously cherished fabric of a Jewish print and is made with the colors of Israel in it. The back is Lady Bird Quilt’s Sapphire Blue 108” quilt backing. Lynda quilted it in the Star of David design. The quilt measures 90” x 93 “ in size. Enjoy, our friend!
