Minecraft Quilt for Lance!


I made this Minecraft quilt as Christmas present for my grandson, Lance Harmon. He loves building things in Minecraft and he needed a bigger quilt so I decided to make him a Minecraft quilt! I saw a picture of one that someone had done a beautiful job with and designed this one from that photo. It features a lot of things from Minecraft set in a field of black. I made the blocks and the title, “Minecraft” from 1 1/2” squares (1” finished size). It is backed and bound it in a Green Quilters Blenders backing print that we stock. Inside I filled it with our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting and I quilted it in “Diamonds” for him with green variegated thread. I machine embroidered the label using the same thread. He was all smiles when he unwrapped this gift at my house! 🙂

Betty’s Deer Quilt


Betty George pieced this deer quilt a couple years ago for a gift. The autumn colors she chose compliment the deer prints and give the quilt a warm feeling. Inside I used our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting and it’s backed with Flowy Camel 108” quilt backing from our shop. I quilted it for her in “Leaves & Acorns” which seemed just perfect for it! I bound it in a dark green to go with a foliage color in the deer print. I think this quilt made someone a nice present! 🙂

Alaskan Homestead Quilt by Shirley


Shirley Clark made this wonderful quilt for their son who lives in Alaska. The cool colors are soothing and the pattern is interesting! I used our soft and warm Hobbs Heirloom batting inside and we backed it with Blue Atoll Quilters Blenders quilt backing from our shop. I quilted it in “Pipeline” for her. A beautiful gift, Shirley! 🙂

John Deere Tractor Quilt for Kaeydon


My sister, Iris Melvin made this adorable John Deere quilt for her grand nephew, Kaeydon. It features John Deere tractors both old and new with the year that John Deere opened his blacksmith and tool shop. The central panel is surrounded by alternating squares of John Deere green and yellow with harvest prints as well as other complimenting prints and colors. It’s backed in brown. Inside we used our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting and I quilted it for her in “Pipeline.” A perfect quilt for a boy who loves Tractors! 🙂

Elephant & Giraffe Baby Quilt!


Patti Spooner made this cute pink and green baby quilt. The rickrack and appliqué elephant and giraffe make it absolutely adorable! The striped back compliments the top perfectly and inside I used our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting. I quilted it in “Double Bubbles” and made the binding from the same material it’s backed with. It’s just precious Patti! 🙂

Joe’s Fishing Quilt!


Jeanne Brown made this quilt for Joe, a man that helped them cut and move trees at their place after the hurricane. He likes to fish so…. Jeanne decided he needed a special quilt that reflected his love of fishing! It features a lovely panel with a peaceful lakefront scene surrounded by fish and ducks. At the top and bottom are two wonderful fishing themed signs. The quilt is bordered with a water print with even more fish that looks absolutely perfect around it. Then she pieced the back, which is as interesting as the top! Another panel with a true fisherman’s motto, surrounded by more water, fish and fishing philosophy. Then… she cut his name out of a deep blue blender print and sewed it in. The back is as pretty as the top! I quilted it for her in the “Gone Fishing” design. I love this one, Jeanne!
