Dianne Powell asked me to make a quilt for her granddaughter, Sydney from her high school athletic T-shirts and jerseys. With shirts from softball, volleyball, and wrestling there was plenty to work with! We also added a picture of her with her glove, ball, bat, and helmet. After cutting and stabilizing the shirts, I pieced the quilt top together with a gold floral print (for the school colors of purple & gold). Our soft, stable Hobbs Heirloom batting was used inside, and the quilt is backed with Purple Tonal Vineyard quilt backing from our shop. I used gold thread to quilt it in “Twine” for her and made the binding from the same material used for the back. This is wonderful way to keep precious high school memories alive! 🙂
Patti Spooner pieced this lovely Southwest Cross quilt! The colorful blocks are bordered with a gorgeous multihued purple print which beautifully frames it. Our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting is inside, and it is backed with Quilter’s Blenders Light Pink quilt backing from our shop. I quilted it for her in “Fancy 3” with neon green thread and did the binding with the same material used for the back. It’s a pretty quilt, Patti! 🙂
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!
