Amberlea’s Softball T-Shirt Quilt!

Share

Mr. Alton Snellgrove asked me to make a quilt for his granddaughter out of her softball T-shirts and jerseys and I was happy to be able to. Amberlea has had quite a distinguished softball career already as her T-shirts attest! I bordered the shirts with red and blue, sashed the blocks with our white tone on tone stars print, framed it in concentric strips of red and blue then made the binding from the same white stars print. The batting inside is premium Hobbs Heirloom and the quilt is backed with Quilters Blenders Poinsettia Red 108” quilt backing from our shop. I quilted it in Bats, Balls, Gloves & Helmets using lime green thread.
Congratulations, Amberlea on your athletic achievements, I hope this quilt preserves and showcases your softball career to date throughout the years to come. 🙂

Patti’s Gold on Blue Irish Chain Quilt!

Share

Patti Spooner pieced this exquisite Irish Chain quilt. The gold Irish Chain pattern is framed by concentric strips of navy blue and a golden brown “Marbleicious” print. This in turn is bordered by an elegant gold on blue print. It’s backed in Quilters Blenders Gold backing from our shop. I quilted it in “Fancy 3” for her and made the binding from the same material it’s backed with. It’s beautiful Patti! 🙂

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. 🙂

Pink & Blue Together Quilt!

Peggy Allen made this eye-catching quilt with pretty pink and blue prints in a geometric design set against a field of yellow green and framed with the same bold blue print used in the design. The quilt is filled with our soft, warm Hobbs Heirloom batting and backed with Quilters Blenders Navy Blue 108″ quilt backing from our shop. I quilted it in “Willowy Weeds” with hot pink thread then made the binding from the same pink material she used. Super job, Peggy! 🙂
