Shirley’s Christmas Colors Strip Throw!

Share

Shirley Clark made this delightful throw featuring colors of Christmas from 2 ½” strips sewed into big blocks. Even though these are not traditional Christmas prints, the colors and certainly make one think of Christmas time! The batting used inside the quilt is soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 and it’s backed with Tonal Vineyard Hunter Green quilt backing from our shop. I quilted it in “Curly Swirly” for her using lime green thread. Charming and colorful, Shirley! 🙂

Patti’s Colorful Log Cabin Quilt!

Patti Spooner pieced this dramatic Log Cabin quilt that just pops with color and contrast! Blue is the primary accent color anchoring the center of each block as well framing all the blocks. A border of gray blenders coordinates nicely with blue binding providing the final accent touch. Soft Hobbs Heirloom batting fills the inside of the quilt sandwich while it is backed with Blended Royal Blue quilt backing from our shop. I quilted it in “Pipeline” for her using black thread and did the binding. This is a beautiful quilt Patti! 🙂

Minnie’s Deer Throw!

Fall weather is finally here now and it’s a perfect time for Minnie Shuler’s Deer Throw! The central panel is a winter scene with three beautiful deer on a snowy day. Above and below are rows of blocks with eight-point stars surrounded by a print that evokes autumn leaves, this in turn is bracketed by a traditional looking star print. Concentric borders of coordinating prints frame it all beautifully. It is backed with Marblecious Camel quilt backing from our shop and has our warm but not too heavy Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting inside. I quilted it for her in a loose stipple. A perfect throw to cuddle up under this time of year! 🙂

Melanie Garcia pieced this sharp looking Hunter’s Star quilt. The multicolor blocks are surrounded by a bold border of black & gold in a Fleur-de-lis print. Our cozy Hobbs Heirloom batting is used inside with Emerald Quilters Blenders backing from our shop for the back. I quilted it in “Curly Cue” with royal blue thread for her and made the binding from the same material used to back it. A fine quilt, Melanie! 🙂

Patti’s Gypsy Wife Quilt!

Patti Spooner pieced this incredible Gypsy Wife quilt from her odds and ends! The lovely pattern is nicely framed by a bold border of red which ties into the bits of red used throughout the blocks and strips. The batting inside is our soft & stable Hobbs Heirloom while the backing is a gray tonal batik from our shop. I quilted it for her in Keryn Emmerson’s “Rambling Hearts.” I did the binding with the same material it’s backed with. This is a delightful quilt, Patti! 🙂

Another Breast Cancer Awareness Throw by Angie!

Share

Breast Cancer Awareness Month continues with another beautiful throw by Angie Pitts. This one is similar to the previous one she did but with the addition of pink squares set on point in the center and corner blocks. Our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting fills the inside and I quilted it with the Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbon and did the binding for her. A beautiful throw for a most important cause Angie!

Laverne McKenzie made this very neat Churn Dash quilt in various brown and blue fabrics sashed with a brown herringbone print. A pleasing rendition of a classic quilt block! It has our soft, stable Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting inside the quilt sandwich and I quilted it in Diamonds for her. Very nice, Laverne! 🙂
