Stair Steps in Red, White & Blue!


Brenda Nelson’s mother-in-law made the center of this quilt. Brenda brought it in and asked us to finish and quilt it for her. My sister, Iris and I added the stripes, lighthouse plus more red and blue to it. I quilted it all in Diamonds with variegated red, white and blue thread and did the matching binding in red. An American treasure!

Eight Point Star Quilt Restoration


James Mills brought me this quilt that his Grandmother made many years ago and asked me to restore it.  I was able to save 10 complete blocks, which was as much of the original quilt as possible and made new ones from fabric I was able to recover from damaged squares and complimentary prints.  The new back that James chose is made from our Black Overtone Willowy Flowers 108” quilt backing.  The quilt is filled with soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting.  I quilted it in an Aztec design.  James was giving the quilt to his brother as a birthday present so he would have something special their Grandma made!  🙂

Embroidered Hearts Quilt


These beautiful squares were hand embroidered by Pat Hammitt’s mother-in-law.  We put them together for her in this quilt. I quilted around each circle of linked hearts, then quilted the borders in a complimentary design.  The quilt is backed with our Tonal Medallion Bright Green 108” quilt backing.  I love the embroidery and cross stitch!

Cross Stitch Quilt


This quilt features farm scenes Cross Stitched by Pat Hammitt’s mother-in-law.  Pat helped pick out the colors, then I designed and put the quilt together.  It is 74” x 84” in size with our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting inside.  I stipple quilted it with ecru thread to complement the colors.  I think it turned out nicely!  🙂

Half Square Triangle Birthday Quilt


My aunt, Ruth Barber made this bright eye catching quilt for her niece, Phyllis Pearce.  She used red, white and black since those are Phyllis’s favorite colors.  The backing is Razzle Dazzle Red with our Hobbs Heirloom batting inside and I quilted it in a Twine design.  Bold & Beautiful!
