Horses and Horseshoes!

Share

Susan Wilson made this striking equine themed quilt! She pieced pinwheel blocks of a horse print with a complimenting solid. For the alternating blocks she embroidered horseshoes on squares of fabric featuring a horseshoe print. She framed these with a rich dark brown solid for complimenting contrast then bordered it with a multicolored stripe print with the stripes running against the quilt for a similar effect to piano keys without actually having to sew piano keys together. Very nice! I filled it with our soft, stable Hobbs Heirloom batting and quilted it in a Wild Horses design using gold thread on top and light brown on the bottom. It’s backed with Tilt-A-Whirl Natural 108” quilt backing from our shop. A unique quilt!

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!

Denim Tribute Quilt

Share

Zelma Smith made this quilt for the family of Manny Egusquiza. It’s made of denim from his blue jeans. Manny competed for years in team roping and calf roping and passed the skills on to his sons Manny Jr. and Dustin who are well known in team roping circles on the rodeo circuit. I quilted it in Horses and Hats. A fitting tribute to a rodeo man and father.

Anniversary Cross Quilt

Share

Tyler Sadler asked us to make this Cross Quilt as a gift for his wife on their 2nd Anniversary, which we were happy to do! Their names are embroidered below the cross and we incorporated the colors he asked for into the quilt. It’s backed and bound with our Quilters Blenders Yellow Gold quilt backing. The batting used is our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 for a nice weigh and feel. I quilted it in sunbeams emanating from the cross in gold thread. We make these to order, a throw in this design is $300.

Hearts in Hearts Quilt

Share

This quilt was made for my grandson Tyler Helms and his bride, McKenzie as a wedding gift. My sister, Iris and I pieced the top, she embroidered their last name and the year. I quilted it and did the binding. I also monogrammed the “label” directly on the border fabric. The pattern is our very own signifying his holding her heart within his, surrounding and protecting her. I quilted it in “Twinkling Hearts” and the back is made from our 108” Navy Blue Quilters Blenders. We wish Tyler and Kenzie a lifetime of happiness together!

Bonnie NeSmith asked us to make this quilt as a retirement gift for Dalen Guthrie from her staff in the Jackson County Clerk’s Office. The quilt features the embroidered emblems on the leftover polo shirts the staff wore. The balance of the quilt is done in garnet & gold, the colors of Florida State University. It’s filled with our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting and is backed & bound with the same Quilters Blender Gold used in the top. My sister Iris pieced the top, I stipple quilted it and made the binding. We wish Dale a Happy Retirement!

She also added some wonderful machine embroidery to personalize the quilt. It’s filled with our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 quilt backing and I quilted it in horses using lime green thread. This is lovely Gwen!
