Sandy’s Tractor Mac Quilt!


Sandy Roberts pieced this charming kid’s quilt featuring several different “Tractor Mac” scenes. The tractor squares alternate with squares of tannish brown, after all you do find tractors in the field! She framed the center with a double border of blue and red. Our soft & stable Hobbs Heirloom batting was used, and it’s backed with a light brown Grunge Print from our shop. I quilted it in Tractors for her with scarlet red thread and did the binding to match. Nice work Sandy! 🙂

John Deere Tractor Quilt for Kaeydon


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


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!
