Throw for Aunt Ruth

Share

My sister, Iris and I made this throw for our aunt, Ruth Barber.  She has made so many wonderful quilts for other people so we decided to make one just for her!  It’s made in the 3 Dudes Jelly Roll pattern with fabrics from our shop.  I quilted it with the Birds In a Bath pattern with lots of spacing to make it soft just like she likes!  🙂

Barns & Bridges Quilt

Share

My sister, Iris Tye Melvin and I made this beautiful Barns & Bridges quilt as a wallhanging for Connie Melzer.  It reminds her of the barns and covered bridges of West Virginia.  She bought the material from the Amish while visiting the area.  Connie also picked out the surrounding colors that just make it work!  I quilted it in the pipeline pattern and it’s backed in our 108” wide Quilters Blenders Natural fabric with our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting inside.
