Helen Revell pieced this quilt top many years ago but it was never quilted. Until… one day it found its way to our quilt shop. Some of the material had given away from age and I had to replace some pieces here and there but it was so very much worth saving! With the quilt top restored I put it together with our soft 80/20 Hobbs Heirloom batting and used Lapis Blue Tonal Vineyard quilt backing for the back. I quilted it for her in “Curly Swirly” then made the binding from the same blue material I used for the back. Helen finally has her quilt finished so she can enjoy it! 🙂
Jeanne Brown made this cat quilt that’s just bursting with color! The dynamic colors and prints of the center squares are surrounded by an inset yellow frame which in turn is surrounded by another row of brightly colored squares, an outer frame of stripes and a bold & bright pink border. Inside we used our soft and cozy Hobbs Heirloom batting. I quilted it for her in Cats and Mice. This quilt is just plain fun and will make you smile! 🙂

If you’ve never been to our friendly Quilt & Fabric shop before, we are located at 2029 Bristol Highway, Quincy, FL. From I-10 take the Greensboro exit (174) and go south 3 miles on State Rd 12 to the center of Greensboro where you will turn left at the traffic light continuing south on State Road 12 for 2 miles. We are located on the left. Look for a fence with a row of American Flags on your left (if you are going south). We are the first driveway on the left past the flags. Just look for the building with the “Fabric & Quilts” sign. See you there! 🙂
Julia Cater made (or re-made) this traditional Log Cabin pattern in a throw size while in college and did a great job with it. There’s a lot of pieces in this quilt top! Inside we used our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting and the throw is backed with our Flowy quilt backing in Gray. I quilted it in “Spring Flowers” and made the binding from the same material used for the backing. Keep up the good work Julia! 🙂
Barbara Wiggins made this adorable quilt from strips. Square up your blocks cutting at a 45 degree angle to your strips then sew them to the next block with the strips meeting at right angles. This technique makes a spectacularly interesting and colorful quilt! It’s filled with our wonderful Hobbs Heirloom batting and backed with Turquoise Tonal Vineyard 108” Quilt Backing which we stock. I quilted it for her in “Double Bubbles” with Bahama Blue thread and made the binding to match the back. A fun way to make a great quilt!
Patti Spooner pieced this gorgeous quilt almost entirely from scraps leftover from other quilting projects! The large floral centerpiece surrounded by diamonds of beautiful prints in a myriad of colors. This field of color is sashed and bordered in white which in turn is framed by concentric borders of four beautiful and complimentary prints. Inside we used our soft, stable Hobbs Heirloom batting. It’s backed and bound with our Blue Tonal Floral quilt backing. I quilted it for her in “Fancy 3” edge to edge. Patti made another beautiful quilt with this one! 🙂
