Arkansas Highway Police Quilt

Share

Kristi Noland asked me to make a big quilt for her dad, a retired Arkansas Highway Police Officer from his uniform shirts, pants, t-shirts, jackets and cap. So, I did! It is just a bit longer than a California King. The colors reflect the colors of the Arkansas Highway Police and I incorporated patches and shirts from many years of his career into his quilt. It has our Hobbs Heirloom batting inside and Quilters Blenders Dark Gray on Black from our shop for backing. I quilted it in “Twine” for her using light gray thread, then did the binding. A wonderful gift and way to remember your dad’s law enforcement career, Kristi! 🙂

Cats Throw by Denise!

Share

Denise Matteoni made this adorable throw. It’s all about the cats!
The pictured cats are elegantly dressed with an East Indian flair, set against black and surrounded by concentric frames of complimenting prints including the cat print which matches the central panels. Our soft yet very stable Hobbs Heirloom batting fills the inside of the quilt. I quilted it in “Sitting Cats” with lime thread for her. You made an incredibly beautiful and special gift, Denise! 🙂

Becky’s Princess Quilt!

Share

Becky Barch made this precious Princess Quilt! The pastel colors of the prints she chose perfectly compliment the center panel which she neatly framed. “Princess” and a tiara are even hand embroidered on the panel! The quilt has our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting inside. I quilted it for her in “Twinkling Stars” with Bahama Blue thread and made the binding from the Princess print used in the quilt top. A beautiful for a special girl, Becky! 🙂

Senior T-Shirt Quilt featuring FFA!

Share

Gwen Edwards made this awesome T-Shirt Quilt for her son who recently graduated from Sneads High School! It’s made from his high school shirts. He was very active in the Future Farmers of America and a proud member of the Sneads chapter, so the quilt features a great collection of FFA shirts, and she even sashed them with FFA fabric! She also added black on the bottom and right of each t-shirt block to make it stand out with a drop shadow effect. I quilted it in waves for her and since the FFA colors are blue and gold I bound it in gold. Gwen, you made a magnificent keepsake for your son! 🙂
