Bring your sewing machine and let’s have some fun! You do need to register in advance which you can do in person at Lady Bird Quilts & Fabric on Saturday, by giving us a call at 850-329-8276 or sending us a message.

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! 🙂Ohio Star Quilt Block

T-Shirt Quilt for Mary

Share

Mary Jack Boone asked me to make this T-Shirt Quilt for her and I was happy to be able to help her out! After cutting the shirts out and stabilizing them I pieced the quilt using a dark navy blue and white honeycomb geometric print for contrast then sashed the rows with a deep blue print. Our soft, stable Hobbs Heirloom batting lives inside the quilt sandwich and it’s backed with Navy Blue Quilters Blenders 108″ quilt backing from our shop. I quilted it in “Diamonds” for her. I think it turned out quite nicely. 🙂

Joe’s Fishing Quilt!

Share

Jeanne Brown made this quilt for Joe, a man that helped them cut and move trees at their place after the hurricane. He likes to fish so…. Jeanne decided he needed a special quilt that reflected his love of fishing! It features a lovely panel with a peaceful lakefront scene surrounded by fish and ducks. At the top and bottom are two wonderful fishing themed signs. The quilt is bordered with a water print with even more fish that looks absolutely perfect around it. Then she pieced the back, which is as interesting as the top! Another panel with a true fisherman’s motto, surrounded by more water, fish and fishing philosophy. Then… she cut his name out of a deep blue blender print and sewed it in. The back is as pretty as the top! I quilted it for her in the “Gone Fishing” design. I love this one, Jeanne!

Helen’s Basket Quilt!

Share

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! 🙂
