Jeanne’s Family Freedom Quilt!

Share

Jeanne Brown made this spectacular Family Freedom Quilt recently. As we celebrate V-E Day or Victory in Europe Day this Saturday it seems fitting to showcase this patriotic quilt depicting the American Bald Eagle and reminding us of the values of Family, Friends and Freedom. We used our soft, stable Hobbs Heirloom batting inside and I quilted it in “Star Spangled” for her in white thread. Definitely an inspiring quilt, Jeanne! 🙂

Marie’s Pink & Blue Quilt

Share

Marie Alday pieced this pretty (& funky!) Pink & Blue Quilt! She used a variety of prints anchored by the overall pink and blue theme to create the fun, whimsical effect. The marbled blue squares set on point are appliquéd, as are the matching triangles. Soft Hobbs Heirloom batting from our shop was used on the inside. I quilted it in “Glorious Crosses” for her and did the binding. This quilt just makes you smile! 🙂

Beth’s Red & Green Geometric Quilt!

Share

Beth Trotman pieced this fantastic Geometric quilt from red and light green prints. It is a great pattern, and the variety of prints makes it even more interesting! Our comfortable Hobbs Heirloom batting is inside, and the quilt is backed with Quilters Blenders Poinsettia Red 108” quilt backing which is also from our shop. I quilted it in “Pipeline” for her and did the binding with the same material that it’s backed with. You pieced a beautiful quilt, Beth! 🙂

Airplanes Throw by Jeanne

Share

Jeanne Brown made this grand Airplanes Throw for a special young man! The center panel depicts some great warbirds including the North American P-51 & T-6 along with the Boeing P-26 & PT-17 set in a field of stars. This is surrounded by a fantastic print with logos from airlines past, neatly framed by a blue geometric print. This in turn is bordered by aviation images and line drawings from over the years. Inside we used our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting and I quilted it in planes flying among the clouds. A magnificent throw, Jeanne! 🙂
