Morning Glory &
Dutch Delight

2 x 2 quilt blocks

Elaine Hobbs’ love of gardening is evident in the beautiful grounds surrounding The Yellow House, a charming craftsman cottage, c. 1910.


The two quilt blocks, Morning Glory and Dutch Delight, are reflective of the colorful annuals and perennials lining the picket fence on two sides of the house.


The adapted designs incorporate appliqué techniques and are reproduced with permission.  The original patterns entitled Star Wreath and Phoebe are by quilt designer Kim Schaefer from the book, Flower Festival,  available from C&T Publishing.


Elaine and her husband Hugh bought The Yellow House in 2006 with plans to renovate for a medical spa. Instead, once the couple completed extensive repairs, their ideas for its purposed changed.  In 2008 The Yellow House opened as a venue for special events and for lodging to accommodate up to nine guests.


With the purchase of adjoining lots, Elaine, a Master Gardener, continues her ongoing landscaping projects to complement the house.


Both Elaine and Hugh are Navy veterans and horse lovers.  They relocated to the Landrum area because of the equestrian lifestyle and are active members of the Green Creek Hounds.
