Annabelle Throw Quilt in Botanical Blue! from Busy Hands Quilts

Today I'm happy to show you a Throw size Annabelle quilt in blue and white!



The Design

While Annabelle looks complicated, it's really not.  The pattern includes step-by-step instructions, so making this design very doable.  If you can make a half-square triangle, you can make Annabelle!


Oh, that fabric!

Oh yes, Annabelle in blue and white is simply stunning.

Ombre Mountains Quilt - The Moda Grunge One! from Busy Hands Quilts

Today I have a new quilt to share with you - Ombre Mountains in Moda Grunge.  It just may be a new favorite!

Ombre Mountains is available in the Busy Hands Quilts Pattern Shop.



Ah, Those Fabrics!


So now you've seen both ends of the quilt, equally stunning.  A blending of blue-green, blues, to purples, and blush pinks.  

Moda Grunge is so versatile for quilting.  It reads like a solid with loads more depth and character.

And striped binding?  Yes, please!  Stripes make my favorite ...

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 ...
