Memories…

Share

This is a Memory Quilt made by my sister Iris Melvin to capture memories of Earl Franklin.  His wife, Dorothy asked Iris to make a quilt out of several of Earl’s cowboy shirts as a present for Brian Hunt who was like a son to them.  Iris also incorporated pictures of Earl, Dorothy and Brian along with appliqués of a couple packs of Earl’s trademark Winstons.  She did not sew down the flap of the pocket Earl carried his cigarettes in so she could slip a real pack in the pocket.  The back is a nice comfortable plaid.  Since Earl loved his boots, fishing and Brian, I quilted it in Cowboy Boots, Fish and Teardrops.  Gone but always remembered…

Boy’s Football Quilt

I made this Football quilt for Becky Simpson and her husband as a present for their young grandson! They selected the different fabrics used in the quilt. It features a gridiron panel surrounded by football squares stripped with Red, White and Blue. I quilted it in football players and footballs. It is backed with plush football fleece and uses our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting to stay snug!

Congratulations to Aubrey Tye on winning 1st Place in Quilting at the State Junior Beta Club Convention in Orlando.  We are so proud of the great job Aubrey did on this dazzling quilt!  It is an original pattern that captures the colorful spirit of Mardi Gras.  The quilt features Mardi Gras fabric from her cousin Jackie Graff who lives in New Orleans.  Aubrey’s grandmother, Iris Tye Melvin has been teaching her to sew and she has learned a lot!  It is quilted in Mardi Gras Masks and Feathers.  The backing is our Quilters Blenders Blue Atoll.  Way to Go Aubrey!!
