Family Tree Quilt

Share

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!

T-Shirt Quilt featuring Basketball

Share

I made this T-shirt quilt for Diane McCombs as a Christmas present for her son.  It showcases his sports shirts surrounded by his school colors.  The fabric is all from Lady Bird Quilts.  It’s backed with our Black Tilt-A-Whirl 108” quilt backing and filled with Hobbs 80/20 Heirloom Batting for a nice wight and feel.  Since he is mostly into basketball I quilted it in Basketballs & Loops then made the binding from a basketball print

This king sized memory quilt was made by Patti Spooner out of shirts and patches from her husband, Ed Spooner’s career in Law Enforcement.  It is backed with our Black Tilt A Whirl quilt backing and the batting is our Hobbs Heirloom 80/20.  I quilted it in the Twine design.  I understand it is a present for a very lucky daughter!
