This throw was made for Sonya Wiley by Lady Bird Quilts. It was made from a linen tablecloth that belonged to her mother. Sonya remembers this tablecloth being on their table for many years. It features Santa Claus singing Christmas carols and playing a variety of traditional musical instruments surrounded by holly. The Santa squares are stripped together with a traditional Christmas print that Sonya found and it’s backed it with the same material. The binding is cut from our Tonal Vineyard Hunter Green 108” fabric. I quilted it in Musical Bells & Candy Canes. A Christmas tradition preserved!
I made this Football quilt for Becky Simpson and her husband as a present for their young grandson! They selected the different fabrics used in the quilt. It features a gridiron panel surrounded by football squares stripped with Red, White and Blue. I quilted it in football players and footballs. It is backed with plush football fleece and uses our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting to stay snug!
My sister, Iris and I made this throw for our aunt, Ruth Barber. She has made so many wonderful quilts for other people so we decided to make one just for her! It’s made in the 3 Dudes Jelly Roll pattern with fabrics from our shop. I quilted it with the Birds In a Bath pattern with lots of spacing to make it soft just like she likes! 🙂

Girls like the Power Rangers too! I made this one for my granddaughter Alisa Danielle Humphrey who loved the Power Rangers every bit as much as her brother when they were kids. The appliqués are from fabric bought and stashed away by their great-grandmother who knew they both loved the Power Rangers. The Rangers are appliquéd on 10 1/2 inch squares. It is backed with our Quilters Blenders Light Pink 108” quilt backing and the batting is Hobbs 80/20 Heirloom. I quilted it it in Ribbon Hearts for her. 🙂
