T-Shirt Quilt for Lynn’s Husband!

Share

Lynn Henderson asked me to make a T-shirt quilt out of the shirts her husband has collected in their travels over the years. He has some great Tees Tees including some special ones from the grandkids and I was happy to help her with this project! It’s sashed with a green and black print that works with the colors and themes of these shirts. The backing is our Quilters Blenders Gold quilt backing and the quilt is filled with soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting from our shop. I quilted it in a “Diamonds” design with tan thread and made the binding from the same material it’s sashed with. A great way to preserve your T-shirts and memories! 🙂

Pink Summer In The Park Quilt!

Share

Betty George pieced the center section of this Summer In The Park quilt and then at her request I added to it, matching her pattern with different pinks to turn it into a king sized quilt. It’s bordered in white and the same deep pink print used in the sashing of the outer portion. The quilt is backed and bound with our Quilters Blenders Light Pink Quilt Backing. Hobbs Heirloom batting was used inside for a soft, natural feel. I quilted it in a loose stipple with pink thread. Lot’s of pink! 🙂

Star Spangled Quilt of Valor

Share

Betty George pieced this vivid Quilt of Valor using patriotic prints of red, white and blue. It’s backed with our Quilters Blenders Poinsettia Red and has Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting inside. I quilted it in “Star Spangled” using gold thread and made the binding from the same material used for the backing.

Anniversary Cross Quilt

Share

Tyler Sadler asked us to make this Cross Quilt as a gift for his wife on their 2nd Anniversary, which we were happy to do! Their names are embroidered below the cross and we incorporated the colors he asked for into the quilt. It’s backed and bound with our Quilters Blenders Yellow Gold quilt backing. The batting used is our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 for a nice weigh and feel. I quilted it in sunbeams emanating from the cross in gold thread. We make these to order, a throw in this design is $300.

I made this Bargello Throw featuring a gradient of Cool Sea Green and Pink to Red colors bordered by Black. It’s backed and bound with in Aqua Turquoise Blenders with our comfortable and stable Hobbs Heirloom batting inside. I quilted it in a diamond design with Variegated Turquoise thread. This 49” x 63” throw is for sale in our shop for $300.00. It makes me think of spring and summer at the beach!

Jeanne Brown made this adorable Elephant Baby Quilt! Mama elephant, her baby and the flowers are all appliquéd on Pinwheel blocks made of pastel pink and white prints with gray solids. Inside we used our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting. I quilted it in “Curl Circles” with hot pink thread. This is precious Jeanne! 🙂

Stars & Interlocking Squares Quilt!

Susan Coe put this amazing quilt together anchored by the large Star & Interlocking Squares block in the center. Very nice work, I love the contrast of the colors! I quilted it for her in “Flights of Fancy” with pink thread. This block was the subject of one of our recent classes.
