Patti’s Farmer’s Daughter Quilt!


Patti Spooner pieced this fetching quilt featuring the Farmer’s Daughter Quilt Block. The design she chose which alternates with the matching squares looks great in the pink with blue accents theme! It is filled with our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting and backed with Light Blue Paisley quilt backing from our shop. I quilted it in “Fancy 3” for her using Hot Pink thread and made the binding from the same material it’s backed with. A sweet quilt, Patti! 🙂

Sue’s Underground Railroad Quilt


Sue Coe made this magnificent Underground Railroad sampler quilt featuring quilt blocks used in quilts as signs for escaped slaves along the Underground Railroad. According to legend, a safe house along the Underground Railroad was often indicated by a quilt hanging from a clothesline, fence or windowsill. The blocks formed a type of code, communicating useful information. Along the edges the meaning of each block is embroidered in brown thread. The green print used in the sashing and gold print used for the legend tie these historic blocks together beautifully. I stipple quilted it for her using ecru thread to reproduce the look of the quilting found in many of these original quilts. A beautiful and compelling way to preserve this history and keep it alive.

Shirley’s Christmas Colors Strip Throw!


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’s Multicolor Hunter’s Star Quilt!


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! 🙂
