I made this queen size quilt for my husband, Page who likes the pattern and wanted a “really warm” quilt for winter. It is the 3 “Dudes” pattern made from 2 ½” strips. I bordered it with piano keys, then backed and bound it with our Quilters Blenders Blue Atoll 108” quilt backing. It’s quilted in the Diamonds design. I used a medium high loft poly-fill batting and….. it’s really warm! So warm that he only wants to sleep under it on the coldest nights! Of course we don’t have too many of those in Florida but he loves looking at it anyway. 🙂
Stacey Strickland and his wife asked me to make a T-Shirt Quilt for their daughter, Lauren as a Christmas present. It includes her T-shirts along with some of her dad’s plus a handkerchief and doilies of her grandmother. I put it together with lime green fabric in solid and chevrons. Georgiana Hand did the machine embroidery. It is filled with our Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 Batting for just the right weight and feel. I backed it with our 108” Softie Lime Green Quilt Backing and quilted it in Square Spirals. A great tribute to Lauren’s many interests and her family!
Carla Nix asked me if I could make quilt for her father, St. Elmo Harrison from a set of squares beautifully hand embroidered with all 50 states, the year of statehood, the state bird and the state flower. Mr. Harrison had purchased the set of squares previously with the intention of having a quilt made from them. I was glad to make it for them! I sashed it with red and blue Quilters Blenders fabric from our shop, bordered with one of our patriotic flag prints then bound it with red after quilting. The quilt is filled with Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting for a soft comfortable feel and ideal weight. I stipple quilted it with Ecru thread. This quilt is a queen size tribute to America! 🙂

Melissa Gilley pieced this Irish Chain quilt in warm, sunny colors. She did a very nice job with this quilt and hopefully she’ll keep this one to enjoy for herself! The quilt is filled with our Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting for just the right weight and feel. I quilted it in a diamond design with wine color thread and then made the binding from the same material as the backing. We are proud that Melissa has made Lady Bird Quilts her second home where quilting is concerned!
