John Deere Tractor Quilt for Kaeydon

Share

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! 🙂

Charles Gilley’s Ford Tractor Quilt

Share

Melissa Gilley made this wonderful throw for her father-in-law, Charles Gilley (Chucks’s Dad) for his Christmas present!  Mr. Gilley has been farming since 1960 and loves his Ford tractors.  Melissa found the Ford print, Chuck took the pictures and the project was on!  The barns and corn are appliquéd on solid black which really makes them pop.  We transferred the photos to cotton for her.  The backing is made from two different soft flannels from our shop.  I quilted it in a Diamonds design which reminds me of fields viewed from above and made the binding in Ford blue!
