Bargello Throw

Share

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!

Marathon T-Shirt Quilt

Share

James Fisher asked us to make a quilt and a couple of throws from the t-shirts he has collected from running marathons in all 50 states. My son Gerald Danford pieced the top for this twin size quilt. The t-shirts are stabilized and sewn together in a field of Wisconsin Badgers Red which is also used for the back. Our soft not too hot, not too cool Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting is inside and I quilted it in “Curly Arcs” with black thread. I also made the binding in black. A perfect quilt to commemorate an amazing achievement!

It features a floral print in the center of the cross echoed with complimenting colors of coral, light sage green, purple and the same floral print repeated. It is bordered with the same solid colors. The back and binding is made from our Petal Flow Purple quilt backing. I quilted it in Sunrays with gold thread and it has our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting inside. This one is for sale in our shop for $400 if you are interested in it.

Coca-Cola Panel Throw

Share

My sister, Iris Tye Melvin made this spectacular Coca-Cola throw for her daughter-in-law, Beth Tye who loves Coca-Cola collectibles! The center of the throw is a gorgeous Coca-Cola panel she found surrounded gray blenders sashed with black to capture the look of the weathered siding on the old general store, then red (for Coke!) and finally piano keys made of different fabrics including two Coca-Cola prints. I quilted it in “Soda-n-Caps” for her. The perfect gift for a Coca-Cola girl!

Canoes, Bears & Squares!

Betty George pieced this charming outdoorsy quilt featuring a print with canoes, bears, squirrels, fish and much more… Just the thing to snuggle up under on these cold winter nights! The traditional pattern is perfect for this quilt. Inside it is filled with our soft, not too light, not too heavy Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting. I quilted it in the “Autumn Leaves” design with gold thread and made the binding from the same material used for the back. Great job Betty!

Brenda Jowers made this festive Christmas themed throw featuring a beautiful buck and doe surrounded by the colors of Christmas in various seasonal prints. It’s perfect for use as a lap quilt to stay warm on these chilly nights! It’s filled with our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting and backed with flannel. I stipple quilted it for her. Very Merry and Cheerful Brenda! 🙂

Dale Guthrie Retirement Quilt

Bonnie NeSmith asked us to make this quilt as a retirement gift for Dalen Guthrie from her staff in the Jackson County Clerk’s Office. The quilt features the embroidered emblems on the leftover polo shirts the staff wore. The balance of the quilt is done in garnet & gold, the colors of Florida State University. It’s filled with our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting and is backed & bound with the same Quilters Blender Gold used in the top. My sister Iris pieced the top, I stipple quilted it and made the binding. We wish Dale a Happy Retirement!
