Simplicity Throw Quilt Pattern - a Custom Quilt! from Busy Hands Quilts

I'm behind at blogging and plan to get caught up over the next few weeks, so stay tuned for news on some new quilts!

This Simplicity Throw quilt was made last year as a custom order for a little girl whose mom had taken her picture on a piece of fabric every month for the first year or so.  As a memory for these precious occasions, the mom had a quilt made with the fabrics, and I got to make it!  




This isn't the first time ...

Ombre Gems Throw Quilt in Ombre Confetti Fabric! from Busy Hands Quilts

This week's custom order finish is an Ombre Gems throw quilt in Ombre Confetti fabrics.




The quilt top was made by my sewist, Kare, and quilted and bound by me.  The only way I can take custom quilt orders is to have one of my sewists make the quilt top; I'm too busy with the pattern design side of my business to make the entire quilt myself.  I have found sewists that sew even better than I ...

Modern Prism Quilted Wall Hanging from Busy Hands Quilts

Ah, the Modern Prism quilt never fails to delight with its bright, planned simplicity.


The fabric is Michael Miller Cotton Couture, and I love the hand of this fabric.  It is so soft and smooth and frays very little, if at all.  It's such a pleasure to work with such high quality fabric! 


I had a Modern Prism quilt kit in my stash and knew that I would never make it without a deadline because I am always so busy with more pressing projects.  I had a request earlier this year for a small version of the quilt, 32 ...
