Gridwork - a Throw Size Quilt Kit in Amish Solids! from Busy Hands Quilts

The Gridwork quilt pattern includes 4 sizes - Lap, Throw, Queen, and King.

The pattern is jelly roll friendly and goes together quickly with strip piecing.

Envision Throw Quilt in Moda Grunge Gris! from Busy Hands Quilts

Today I'm excited to share an Envision Throw quilt with you!  This one is made with Moda Grunge which always seems to work very well in quilts.




The fabrics are all Moda Grunge in a range of grays, tans, and browns.  Just grab yardage of five fabrics from dark to light in a single colorway.  

The pictures in this post show varying shades, and I wish it weren't so.  Photographing quilts in different sunlight and locations is hard to adjust for when I'm not a ...

Belle Quilt Pattern - the Throw in Notting Hill! from Busy Hands Quilts

Today I'm sharing a sweet quilt pattern with you called Belle!  This is a layer cake friendly pattern that includes four sizes - Throw, Twin, Queen, and King.

Belle is an X patch design with a Seminole border.  While it looks like there is sashing between the blocks, there isn't; the X's float inside the block rather than going to the edge of the block.

My Farmhouse Quilt - A Throw in Notting Hill! from Busy Hands Quilts

Meet the My Farmhouse quilt pattern!  My Farmhouse is a quick and easy jelly roll quilt pattern.  The pattern is strip pieced and is a great way to get your feet wet if you're new to strip piecing.

You can make the Throw size with 30 strips - less than one jelly roll!  That's great news since most jelly rolls have a few fabrics that could be left out since they blend in too much with the background, whether that be a light fabric or a dark fabric.

Waterfall Queen Quilt by Karen! from Busy Hands Quilts

Isn't this a beautiful quilt?!?  This is a Waterfall quilt made by Karen in blues and greens in the Queen size.  She did a beautiful job!


The Waterfall quilt pattern includes two sizes - Throw and Queen - because other sizes do not work out mathematically.  If you'd like to make the King size, I recommend adding borders, because adding another row of blocks makes a quilt over 130".
