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! 🙂
We got a nice delivery of new fabric at the shop today. We have all the popular White Tone on Tone prints that we’ve carried before plus a couple new ones. A beautiful green and yellow in Quilters Blenders, they would be just perfect for a John Deere quilt… Several great new prints from Quilting Treasures and restocked on some of our most popular 108” quilt backing which we sell for only $10.00 a yard. Don’t pay more, come shop our great selection of high-quality cotton fabric and see what’s new! 🙂

This is my Christmas Quilt this year. I pieced it with help from my sister Iris. It’s a John Deere Christmas Tree! The quilt features a small panel with Santa on his John Deere Tractor in the middle of the tree with squares that include The Grinch and Christmas Lights. Santa pulling his sleigh with a John Deere, Christmas village, star, stocking and candy canes are all appliqué. It is bordered with a holly print then backed and bound with the same Yellow Gold Quilters Blenders fabric used in the top to make the John Deere yellow. The batting is our famous Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 and I quilted it in Twinkling Snow Flakes. HoHoHo! Have a Merry Christmas everyone!
