Libby’s Easter Throw!

Share

Libby Shepard made this precious Easter Throw featuring the Easter Bunny and lots of eggs! The four bunnies and all the Easter eggs are sashed with pink material with small white polka dots. Just perfect! The throw is backed in our purple Tilt-A-Whirl quilt backing which I also used for the binding. I quilted it in bunnies and hearts for her. Happy Easter! 🙂

Purple & Green Throw!

Share

Libby Shepard made this Purple & Green throw that just pops with color! She used two alternating blocks that incorporate both appliqué and embroidery. The blocks are framed by concentric borders of white, purple and lime green. Our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting is inside the quilt and it’s backed with our Tilt-A-Whirl Purple quilt backing. I quilted it in “Flights of Fancy” and made the binding from the same material it’s backed with. This throw just smiles at you and seems to say “Spring is Here!” 🙂

Strip Diamonds Quilt!

Share

Barbara Wiggins made this adorable quilt from strips. Square up your blocks cutting at a 45 degree angle to your strips then sew them to the next block with the strips meeting at right angles. This technique makes a spectacularly interesting and colorful quilt! It’s filled with our wonderful Hobbs Heirloom batting and backed with Turquoise Tonal Vineyard 108” Quilt Backing which we stock. I quilted it for her in “Double Bubbles” with Bahama Blue thread and made the binding to match the back. A fun way to make a great quilt!

Diamonds Scrap Quilt!

Share

Patti Spooner pieced this gorgeous quilt almost entirely from scraps leftover from other quilting projects! The large floral centerpiece surrounded by diamonds of beautiful prints in a myriad of colors. This field of color is sashed and bordered in white which in turn is framed by concentric borders of four beautiful and complimentary prints. Inside we used our soft, stable Hobbs Heirloom batting. It’s backed and bound with our Blue Tonal Floral quilt backing. I quilted it for her in “Fancy 3” edge to edge. Patti made another beautiful quilt with this one! 🙂

Ohio Star Variation!

Share

Barbara Drake pieced this catchy quilt! it’s a variation on the Ohio Star pattern. The blocks are sashed with our White on Natural Antique Rose print which we carry in 108” width. Inside we used Hobbs Heirloom batting which is just the perfect weight for many quilts especially in the south. I quilted it in “Twinkling Stars” for her and the quilt is backed in Lime Green Softie quilt backing. Very Nice Barbara! 🙂

T-Shirt Quilt for Amanda!

Share

Jean Ramos asked me to take her daughter Amanda’s T-Shirts from High School and make them into a quilt with the colors of the Marianna High School. We can do that! My son, Gerald got busy cutting the shirts out then I put them together with purple and gold, the colors of the Bulldogs. The quilt is bordered in the same colors. It is also backed & bound with the gold which is Quilters Blenders Yellow Gold from our shop. We naturally used our soft but stable Hobbs Heirloom batting inside and I stipple quilted it for her. With care these shirts and the memories they represent are now preserved for a lifetime!
