Sue’s Butterfly Appliqué Quilt!

Share

Sue Coe made this wonderful quilt featuring beautiful butterflies made from handkerchiefs which she folded and pressed in the shape of a butterfly then appliquéd on the squares. The blocks are sashed with a petite lavender floral material which she bordered with concentric strips of a green butterfly print surrounded by a purple tonal floral print. Of course, I quilted it for her in butterflies with purple thread! You created a very pretty quilt Sue! 🙂

Diane’s Night Sky Quilt!

Diane Evans made this beautiful quilt giving us a breathtaking view of the stars and night sky. Even the white tone on tone material used in the blocks has stars! She chose to back it with Tonal Vineyard Lapis Blue backing and our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting is inside the quilt sandwich. Naturally, I quilted it for her in “Wandering Stars!” You made a gorgeous quilt, Diane! 🙂

Susan’s Yorkshire Rose Quilt

Susan Wilson made this stunning Yorkshire Rose quilt for her daughter! The pattern was featured in the February 2009 issue of McCall’s Quilting. Alternating floral and geometric blocks set on point are connected with strips of alternating white and brown prints. The design is framed and bordered by contrasting yet complimenting floral prints. The quilt is filled with soft, supple Hobbs Heirloom batting and backed with our Marbleicious Brown 108” quilt backing. I quilted it in paw prints for her with burgundy thread. This is a gorgeous quilt, Susan! 🙂

Inspirational Appliqué Quilt!

Ann Owens made this amazing quilt for a very special lady! It’s filled with inspirational bits of wisdom about life that Ann lovingly appliquéd on a wide variety of pretty fabric colors and prints. Many other elements of the design are appliquéd as well. The quilt contains a number of traditional quilt blocks as well. The entire design comes together to convey a beautiful message about love and life! It’s filled with soft Hobbs Heirloom batting from our shop and backed with our Overtone Gray on White Willowy Flowers Quilt Backing. I meander quilted it for her (a large stipple) at her request. A very special quilt, Ann! 🙂

Minecraft Quilt for Lance!

Share

I made this Minecraft quilt as Christmas present for my grandson, Lance Harmon. He loves building things in Minecraft and he needed a bigger quilt so I decided to make him a Minecraft quilt! I saw a picture of one that someone had done a beautiful job with and designed this one from that photo. It features a lot of things from Minecraft set in a field of black. I made the blocks and the title, “Minecraft” from 1 1/2” squares (1” finished size). It is backed and bound it in a Green Quilters Blenders backing print that we stock. Inside I filled it with our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting and I quilted it in “Diamonds” for him with green variegated thread. I machine embroidered the label using the same thread. He was all smiles when he unwrapped this gift at my house! 🙂

A beautiful Christmas quilt Patsy! 🙂
