U.S. Army Table Runner for Gerald

Share

I made this U.S. Army table runner for my son, Gerald Danford who served in the Army. Since next Monday, June 14th it the 246th birthday of the U.S. Army (as well as being Flag Day) I thought I would share pictures of this piece. The Army fabric used for the panels is a print licensed by the U.S. Army which we stock. It is surrounded with the Army colors of black and gold as well as green for all the years the Army wore green. It is backed and bound with a patriotic print featuring Old Glory. I quilted it in stars. Thanks to all who served in the U.S. Army, past and present for the freedom we enjoy today!

Diana’s Cool Bargello Quilt!

Share

Diana Epple made this beautiful small Bargello quilt full of cool, serene shades accented with yellow and gold! The matching floral border is in turn framed by a vivid dark blue print that evokes the stars at night. Our versatile Hobbs Heirloom batting is inside, and I quilted it “Curly Swirly” with yellow thread for her. It’s a pretty quilt, Diana! 🙂

Senior T-Shirt Quilt featuring FFA!

Share

Gwen Edwards made this awesome T-Shirt Quilt for her son who recently graduated from Sneads High School! It’s made from his high school shirts. He was very active in the Future Farmers of America and a proud member of the Sneads chapter, so the quilt features a great collection of FFA shirts, and she even sashed them with FFA fabric! She also added black on the bottom and right of each t-shirt block to make it stand out with a drop shadow effect. I quilted it in waves for her and since the FFA colors are blue and gold I bound it in gold. Gwen, you made a magnificent keepsake for your son! 🙂

Sue’s Underground Railroad Quilt

Share

Sue Coe made this magnificent Underground Railroad sampler quilt featuring quilt blocks used in quilts as signs for escaped slaves along the Underground Railroad. According to legend, a safe house along the Underground Railroad was often indicated by a quilt hanging from a clothesline, fence or windowsill. The blocks formed a type of code, communicating useful information. Along the edges the meaning of each block is embroidered in brown thread. The green print used in the sashing and gold print used for the legend tie these historic blocks together beautifully. I stipple quilted it for her using ecru thread to reproduce the look of the quilting found in many of these original quilts. A beautiful and compelling way to preserve this history and keep it alive.

Abigail’s Blue & Gold Quilt

Share

Abigail Taunton made this charming Blue & Gold quilt! A variety of prints in these colors are used, many with stars in them. The design and the choice of colors combine for an elegant effect. Our soft & stable Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting is used inside the quilt. I quilted it in stars using gold thread for her. Abigail, you created a handsome quilt! 🙂
