Vickie’s Big Bold Batik Quilt!

Share

Vickie Porter pieced this bold & beautiful King size Batik Strip Quilt featuring an appliqué “M” set in browns in the middle with wider batik strips above and below. If I remember correctly, she made it for her son, Matt.
I quilted it in “Curly Swirly” using gold thread and did the binding for her. This quilt is a veritable explosion of color, Vickie! 🙂

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! 🙂

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! 🙂

Rainbow Floral Appliqué Throw!

Ann Owens made this incredible, vivid throw using the new Steam-A-Seam 2 fusible appliqué technique. She used a virtual rainbow of complimenting prints highlighted by the floral appliqués that are literally jumping out of their squares! I stipple quilted it in black for her. This throw is beautiful, Ann! 🙂

Elephant & Giraffe Baby Quilt!

Share

Patti Spooner made this cute pink and green baby quilt. The rickrack and appliqué elephant and giraffe make it absolutely adorable! The striped back compliments the top perfectly and inside I used our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting. I quilted it in “Double Bubbles” and made the binding from the same material it’s backed with. It’s just precious Patti! 🙂

Purple & Green Throw!

Libby Shepard made this Purple & Green throw that just pops with color! She used two alternating blocks that incorporate both appliqué and embroidery. The blocks are framed by concentric borders of white, purple and lime green. Our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting is inside the quilt and it’s backed with our Tilt-A-Whirl Purple quilt backing. I quilted it in “Flights of Fancy” and made the binding from the same material it’s backed with. This throw just smiles at you and seems to say “Spring is Here!” 🙂
