The class fee is $25 (payable at the class) which covers all materials for the class. Fabric will be for sale after the class.

If you’ve never been to our friendly Quilt & Fabric shop before, we are located at 2029 Bristol Highway, Quincy, FL. From I-10 take the Greensboro exit (174) and go south 3 miles on State Rd 12 to the center of Greensboro where you will turn left at the traffic light continuing south on State Road 12 for 2 miles. We are located on the left. Look for a fence with a row of American Flags on your left (if you are going south). We are the first driveway on the left past the flags. Just look for the building with the “Fabric & Quilts” sign. See you there! 🙂Square in a Square Log Cabin Block

Log Cabin In The Round Quilt!

Share

Carolyn Finlayson made this extraordinary quilt! It’s a paper pieced pattern with lots of pieces. Her work is meticulous. I think part of what makes this quilt so interesting to look at is the block variations. I quilted it for her in “Curly Swirly” with royal blue thread. She did the binding herself after these pictures were taken. I think she’s a natural, with lots of patience. Beautiful work, Carolyn! 🙂

Gennell’s Quilt

Share

Gennell Neel has been a loyal customer of ours for some years and has become a wonderful friend. Recently she brought me a quilt top that her mother pieced. She wanted it made larger, quilted and bound but she didn’t want to do it… Gennell is a truly talented seamstress and quilt maker in her own right who has made so many quilts for others but she wanted this quilt for herself and she really wanted it as if her mother had lived to finish it for her instead of doing it herself. I was honored that she asked me to finish and quilt it for her. I added the blue and gold strips to frame the beautiful work her mother had done then bordered it with a complimenting floral print. Inside I used our Hobbs Heirloom batting, the back is our “Willowy Flowers” overtone quilt backing. I quilted it in the Asian Fan design then made the binding from the same deep blue that I used in the frame. It was a pleasure doing this for her and I hope she enjoys it and thinks of her mother’s love every time she looks at it. 🙂

Floral Hexagon Quilt

Share

Laverne McKenzie made this charming Hexagon styled quilt. Incorporating complimenting floral prints and colors, it’s a beautiful reminder that quilt blocks don’t have to be square! By separating the exquisite border from the hex blocks with white she added contrast that really makes it an eye-catching work of art. I quilted it for her in a flower & leaf motif. Great job Laverne! 🙂
