Ocean & Beach Throw

Share

I made this one for myself!  The throw features dolphins, whales, salt water fish and a sea turtle with cool ocean colors created with Marblecious and Quilters Blenders prints from our shop.  There is also a bit of the beach!  It’s backed with our Sapphire Blue Quilters Blenders quilt backing.  I quilted it in Seashells & Sand Dollars. Sometimes you just need to think about the beach…  🙂

Parasol Lady Quilt

Share

Patty Ray asked me to make a quilt from these “Parasol Lady” blocks which she and her mother-in-law embroidered by hand.  I stripped it together with Quilter’s Blenders Purple from our shop and quilted it tracing around the dolls and filling in with a twine design.  It’s quilted in ecru thread on top and purple on the bottom.  The quilt is filled with our Hobbs Heirloom batting for a soft and natural feel.  I also embroidered the label and did the binding.  The beautiful handwork by Patty and her mother-in-law certainly makes for a beautiful gift for a lucky granddaughter!

Red, White & Blue Twister Quilt

Share

This magnificent patriotic quit was made by Othelia Clark!  It features Red, White and Blue prints pieced in a twister pattern.  She backed it with a captivating interlocking print and it uses our Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting.  I quilted it for her in Stars & Loops.  An inspiring quilt for this Memorial Day and every day!

Majestic Blue Diamond Quilt

Share

This spectacular quilt was made by my aunt, Ruth Barber and sister, Iris Tye Melvin as a gift for me!  The design is mine and Iris’s.  The gold in the center triangles and the variegated blue fabric in the big blue diamond is accented by touches of metallic gold in the blue swirls.  The diamonds are sashed in white and black.  A black border frames and sets off the design.  The quilt is backed with our 108” Tonal Vineyard Bright Blue quilt backing and I quilted it in an Asian Fan design.  It is on our bed now, thank you Aunt Ruth & Iris!  🙂

We are moving the fabric store but not quite yet.  We will be moving the fabric to a brand new building beside my home near Greensboro, FL where my quilting studio is located.  The building has been ordered, we hope to have it completed by the first of May but it could take a bit longer.  In preparation for the move, the signs have been taken down at our original location in Grand Ridge but WE ARE STILL THERE every Saturday until we actually move.  All of our stock is still in Grand Ridge and we will still be piecing quilts and holding an indoor “Fabric Yard Sale” every Saturday from 10 to 4 until further notice.

All floral prints on the bolt (except 108”) are 20% off!  Fat Quarters are only $1.00 each, with bundles of 10 for $9.50.  Jelly Rolls (42 color coordinated 2 1/2” x 44” strips in a roll) are ready for you to sew for only $19.99 each.  Layer Cakes (rolled bundles of 42 color coordinated 10” squares) are $25 each.  Honey Buns (42 strips 1 1/2” x 44”) are just $15.99.  We also have Charm Packs of pre-cut squares in different sizes.  Our cotton prints are $5.00 a yard (except for collegiate and specialty material), a wide range of bargain cotton solids are $4.00 a yard with premium cotton solids priced at $5.00 a yard.  Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting (96” wide) is in stock for $8.28 a yard or 23 cents per inch.  To complete your quilt we carry top quality 108” wide cotton quilt backing material for $10 a yard in numerous colors and prints.
