Minnie’s Deer Throw!

Share

Fall weather is finally here now and it’s a perfect time for Minnie Shuler’s Deer Throw! The central panel is a winter scene with three beautiful deer on a snowy day. Above and below are rows of blocks with eight-point stars surrounded by a print that evokes autumn leaves, this in turn is bracketed by a traditional looking star print. Concentric borders of coordinating prints frame it all beautifully. It is backed with Marblecious Camel quilt backing from our shop and has our warm but not too heavy Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting inside. I quilted it for her in a loose stipple. A perfect throw to cuddle up under this time of year! 🙂

Freida’s Eagle Throw!

Freida Ritter made this awesome patriotic Eagle Throw! The center panel depicts the bald eagle, our symbol of freedom flying above the Liberty Bell and both the original and current flags of the United States of America. It’s framed with red, white and blue prints anchored by superimposed 8 pointed stars in the corners. Hobbs Heirloom batting is inside and I quilted it in “Stars & Loops” for her using variegated red, white and blue thread. Freida made this one for herself and it is a beautiful sight to behold! 🙂

Patsy Willis made this T-Shirt quilt with 15 tees from the annual Greensboro Kiwanis July 4th Celebration and 5,000 Meter Run! This annual celebration has been put on by the Greensboro, Fl Kiwanis for many years and has become a community tradition. She sashed the shirts together with a White Stars on Blue print and bordered it with Red Stars on White. We stock many patriotic prints in our shop including stars, we also carry the Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting used inside. I meander quilted it for her using red, white and blue variegated thread. A wonderful quilt commemorating a great celebration! 🙂

Diane’s Night Sky Quilt!

Diane Evans made this beautiful quilt giving us a breathtaking view of the stars and night sky. Even the white tone on tone material used in the blocks has stars! She chose to back it with Tonal Vineyard Lapis Blue backing and our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting is inside the quilt sandwich. Naturally, I quilted it for her in “Wandering Stars!” You made a gorgeous quilt, Diane! 🙂

FSU & UF Crib Quilt

Share

Patti Spooner covered the field with this winning crib quilt for a little one whose parents pull for different teams!  The pattern has a neat gradient effect that ties the Seminole garnet to the Gator blue.  The black sashing really frames the colors and just makes them pop!  The quilt is backed with our Tilt-A-Whirl Natural quilt backing and filled with Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting (not too heavy but still nice & warm).  I quilted it in Swirls and Stars then did the binding in black to match.  This quilt is a winner wither way!  🙂
