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! 🙂

Colorful Cats Quilt!

Share

Jeanne Brown made this cat quilt that’s just bursting with color! The dynamic colors and prints of the center squares are surrounded by an inset yellow frame which in turn is surrounded by another row of brightly colored squares, an outer frame of stripes and a bold & bright pink border. Inside we used our soft and cozy Hobbs Heirloom batting. I quilted it for her in Cats and Mice. This quilt is just plain fun and will make you smile! 🙂

Log Cabin Throw

Share

Julia Cater made (or re-made) this traditional Log Cabin pattern in a throw size while in college and did a great job with it. There’s a lot of pieces in this quilt top! Inside we used our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting and the throw is backed with our Flowy quilt backing in Gray. I quilted it in “Spring Flowers” and made the binding from the same material used for the backing. Keep up the good work Julia! 🙂

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! 🙂
