Kansas Red and White Throw Quilt in Just Red {Custom Quilting} from Busy Hands Quilts

Kansas Red and White Throw Quilt in Just Red, a custom quilting project by Busy Hands Quilts.


This is a quilt made by Andrea which I custom quilted for her in a new-to-me design.  Her request was something bubbly, so bubbly it is!


Executing this design on my longarm required a tutorial as I had never wrapped a design around so the next row is half dropped to the previous row.  Learning this technique has opened up a ton of new quilt designs that I will be able to use on my machine.

Custom Quilting Little Red Riding Hood Baby Quilt! from Busy Hands Quilts


I so enjoyed custom quilting this Little Red Riding Hood baby quilt in the sweetest of hearts.  I've had this panto for awhile, and after seeing it stitched out, I can't believe I haven't used it sooner; it is beautiful!  You will definitely be seeing it again.  :)  This is a quilt of Andrea's, and I also bound it for her.  Saturday has become my go-to custom quilting day as I'm so busy during the week with quilt designing, pattern writing, and quilt-making.  I finish my chores as quickly as possible in order to get my ...

Custom Quilting Neverland Baby Quilt! from Busy Hands Quilts


I custom quilted this Neverland baby quilt with a fun star and swirl panto.  Sometimes it's a challenge to think of which design to use on a quilt, but this was an easy choice for this Peter Pan-themed quilt.  This is a quilt of Andrea's, and I also bound it for her.  I've begun working on custom quilting on Saturdays after the chores are done, and it's a great incentive to bust them out!

Best of 2019 at Busy Hands Quilts from Busy Hands Quilts

This year was entirely different for me than any previous year as a quilter, so rather than featuring only the best of 2019, this is a brief history of all of 2019.

This year I made less quilts than last year and instead wrote a ton of quilt patterns.  So many, in fact, that I lost count and had to look it up myself, and when I saw the number I got so tired that I had to go take a nap.  No wonder I dropped off the blogging bandwagon this year - there was simply no time to do it ...

Facebook 49719 Years Ago from Busy Hands Quilts


Do you see it?  Facebook existed 49719 years ago according to this post in my Facebook Group, Busy Hands Quilting.  Um, really?  In this screenshot, I covered over the poster's name and face because I don't think she wants us to know that she is over 49719 years old, but I'm okay if you know that about me.  :)

There's your funny for today.  I hope you have more!
