Kay’s Hearts for Sophia

Hearts for Sophia

This lovely heart themed quilt was made from Kay’s scraps.  Her granddaughter Sophia helped by selecting her preferred fabrics.  Sophia also chose the backing, a pink-toned Japanese fabric from Lecien Textiles.  Sophia chose Warm and Plush as the batting because she wanted a snuggly quilt.


The quilting design is called Rambling Hearts, a pattern from Australian designer, Keryn Emmerson.  The thread is a deep pink tri-lobal polyester that gives a nice sheen to the quilting.  Sophia is going to love this cuddly lap quilt!


Ruth’s Scrappy Nine Patch

Scrappy Nine Patch

This scrappy nine patch is another small quilt made by Ruth for one of her grandchildren.    The quilting design is Leaf Pile by Keryn Emmerson, an Australian designer.   The allover pattern is a great choice for this quilt.  The thread is a gold poly that gives definition to the pattern without competing with the scrappy nature of the quilt.

Nancy’s Daughter’s Wedding quilt


When Nancy’s daughter Sarah got married a few years ago, Nancy created this quilt for wedding guests to write messages and sign.   The messages were sweet and touching and I had a lump in my throat as I quilted it for her.  I used Keryn Emmerson’s design called Rambling Hearts, which seemed to fit the romantic nature of this quilt.

2013-20 Detail

Sarah will be thrilled to receive this quilt.  Her father Ted signed the quilt for Nancy and Ted.  Since the wedding, Ted has passed away, so this quilt will be very precious to Sarah.
