Minnie’s Hand Painted Flowers Throw!

Share

Minnie Schuler made this beautiful throw for her son. She drew and painted the gorgeous flowers that adorn each square! The squares are made from our tone-on-tone White Wildflowers print which make the perfect canvas for her artwork. Tonal Vineyard Yellow Green from our shop backs the quilt while the inside if filled with our versatile Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting. I quilted it in “Curly Swirly” for her using off-white thread. It’s just beautiful Miss Minnie! 🙂

Melanie’s Flowers & Paisley Quilt!

Melanie Garcia pieced this catchy quilt featuring Flowers with a Paisley Border. The cool & colorful purple, blue and green colors she chose work together very well! Inside, this quilt is filled with our soft, stable Hobbs Heirloom batting. It’s also backed with Blue Tonal Vineyard quilt backing from our shop. I quilted it in Dragonflies with turquoise thread for her and made the binding from the same material used to back it. This quilt certainly is easy on the eyes, Melanie!

Lynda’s Whimsical Bicycle Art Quilt!

Share

I made this queen size Whimsical Bicycle Art quilt from a pattern by Sally Manke. This one is for my own bed! The wheels are each made from 72 Dresden wedges cut with a 10-degree wedge ruler. The bicycle, flowers and butterflies are all appliqué. I made it in the colors I wanted and added the floral corner blacks and yellow field to frame it and create the true queen size I need for my bed. The concentric blue and black borders contrast nicely with the lighter colors focusing attention toward the center. A couple of the pictures show the top as I was adding the border prior to quilting. I backed it Light Blue Floral quilt backing from our shop. Since I had butterflies on the quilt it just seemed perfect add dragonflies by quilting them with lime green thread! I made the binding from different prints used in the quilt. I finally made one just for me! 🙂

Jeanne’s Flower Throw!

This beautiful throw featuring a watercolor rendition of colorful flowers in glass bottles is by Jeanne Brown! She framed the central panel with concentric borders of floral prints alternating with a variegated green. Inside we used our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting and since it’s pretty flowers I quilted it in Hummingbirds for her! A gorgeous throw, Jeanne! 🙂

Camellias & Diamonds Quilt!

Share

My sister-in-law, Marilyn Maphis asked me to make a queen size quilt from these puffed Camellia prints which were given to her and my brother, Randolph by a dear friend of theirs. Randolph is a longtime member of the Tallahassee Camellia Society. The prints were individually layered with batting and sewn around to create the puffed effect. When I looked at them, the shape of each print seemed perfect for a diamond, so that’s how I designed the quilt. Each diamond is bordered in a hunter green blended print from our shop interspersed with triangles of pink, green and yellow. The hunter green & pink border frame and compliment the colors of the blooms. Our soft and stable Hobbs Heirloom batting is used inside the quilt sandwich. The same hunter green blended print was used for the backing and binding. I quilted around each flower and quilted additional blooms in the triangles and border. Hopefully the quilt does justice to these beautiful flowers!
