Carole’s Batik Strip Quilt!

Share

Carole Hennen made this colorful Batik Strip quilt as a gift for her daughter-in-law. The strips are all batiks from our shop bordered with a cool green frame. She machine embroidered the date on the bottom. The quilt is backed with our Sapphire Blue quilt backing and wonderful, long lasting Hobbs Heirloom batting is on the inside. I quilted it in “Diamonds” for her with Royal Blue thread. A beautiful quilt, Carole! 🙂

Carole’s Red, White & Blue Quilt!

Share

Carole Hennen pieced this Patriotic Red, White & Blue quilt! The red & white / blue & white blocks alternate with the blocks made from the bold stars and stripes print. The red frame and white tone on tone stars border tie it all together to make a great quilt! Our quality Hobbs Heirloom batting is inside, and the quilt is backed with Blue Quilters Blenders backing from our shop. I quilted it in “Star Spangled” using gold thread and made the binding from the same material it’s backed with.  Happy Birthday to the USA! 🙂

Christie’s “A Father’s Love” Quilt for Maddox!

Share

Christie Green made this handsome quilt for her grandson, Maddox. It has his name and a message of love for him embroidered on it with the names of all the special dads in his life! It’s backed with our Navy Blue quilt backing with soft Hobbs Heirloom batting from our shop inside. I quilted it “Bats, Gloves and Balls” in red thread for her. I did the binding in red as well. A wonderful gift and reminder of a father’s love, Christie! 🙂

Sue’s Underground Railroad Quilt

Share

Sue Coe made this magnificent Underground Railroad sampler quilt featuring quilt blocks used in quilts as signs for escaped slaves along the Underground Railroad. According to legend, a safe house along the Underground Railroad was often indicated by a quilt hanging from a clothesline, fence or windowsill. The blocks formed a type of code, communicating useful information. Along the edges the meaning of each block is embroidered in brown thread. The green print used in the sashing and gold print used for the legend tie these historic blocks together beautifully. I stipple quilted it for her using ecru thread to reproduce the look of the quilting found in many of these original quilts. A beautiful and compelling way to preserve this history and keep it alive.

Joleeta’s Embroidered Cats Throw

Joleeta Hand made this cute throw featuring adorable Kitty Cats embroidered by her late husband. She sashed the squares with a purple solid and used a marbled purple print for the border. The throw is backed with our Tonal Vineyard Lilac Quilt Backing and our soft, stable Hobbs Heirloom batting is inside. I quilted it in “Twinkling Daisies” then made the binding from the same material it’s backed with. A very precious throw, Joleeta! 🙂
