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. 🙂
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! 🙂
I made this Red, White and Blue quilt for Tim McDonald as a tribute to his military service. I quilted it in the “Star Spangled” design with navy blue thread. It is backed and bound with our Poinsettia Red Quilters Blenders quilt backing and filled with soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting. Thank you for your service!
I made this quilt featuring 3 ducks swimming on a pond in the center. The ducks were given to me and I thought they really needed to be swimming so I appliquéd them on a pond of our Light Blue Marblecious fabric. The pond is surrounded by squares of a green print for vegetation, brown for the earth (& cattails), a blue water print with white and yellow blenders to tie it all together. It is backed and bound with our Softie Lime Green 108” Quilt Backing and I quilted it in Cattails & Lily Pads with green thread. It made the perfect housewarming gift for my nephew and his wife who bought a lakeside home! 🙂
