Scrappy Goodness Quilt - the Bright and Bold Solids One! from Busy Hands Quilts

The Scrappy Goodness quilt pattern is the perfect pattern to use the bright and happy solid fabrics from your stash!  Grab those solid jelly rolls or solids scraps that you've been wondering what to do with and pair them with Scrappy Goodness!

The Scrappy Goodness quilt pattern includes most of the sizes - Baby, Lap, Throw, Queen, and King.  Only the Twin bed size didn't work out mathematically.

The Scrappy Goodness quilt pattern can be found in the Busy Hands Quilts shop.


This is the fourth month in my commitment to making a new quilt in a previously-released quilt ...

Anthea Blouse in Sky Blue Linen from Art and Quilting in Camden

While visiting my favorite local shop, Fiddlehead Artisan Supply, one of the young women working there had on her version of this blouse. Asked the pattern name–Anthea by Anna Allen–went home and ordered it! The colors I’m wearing are Maine Summer and it is so flattering to many body types and comfortable.

Today’s blogpost takes you through making an entire blouse, which presser feet I use on my Janome (I’m a brand ambassador and compensated, but I’d say all this good stuff anyway…they rock!) m7Continental, why and offer tips and tricks for garment ...

Quilt Block Mania - October is On the Farm from The Inquiring Quilter

Welcome to my stop on the Quilt Block Mania Blog Hop. Each of the designers participating in the hop are sharing a block pattern inspired by this month’s theme, which is On the Farm.

I’m a city girl but I sure do love the country! And I can’t resist an old tractor. At our state fair a parade of old tractors is something I look forward to each time.

I call my block How I Roll. I saw that on a tractor once and always remembered it. I hope ...

Nautical News Throw Quilt + We Have Quilt Kits! from Busy Hands Quilts

Just finished is the sweetest Nautical New quilt in the Throw size!  This quilt pattern is quick and easy using 10" layer cake squares.

I recently stated a goal of remaking a quilt in one of my patterns each month.  It's a lofty goal (and in all likelihood quite unrealistic), but so far July was on time, August was a week late, and this quilt, September's quilt, landed smack in the middle of September!  October's project is already selected and waiting her turn.  :)

Nautical News is a simple quilt pattern that is precut friendly and includes all ...

Waterfall II Fire Throw Quilt by Deanna! from Busy Hands Quilts

Today I'm sharing more pictures of Deanna's Fire Waterfall II quilt!  It's a stunning quilt that inspired me to make a similar quilt, too!  

The Waterfall II quilt pattern is available in the Busy Hands Quilts shop.


Deanna sent me a picture of her quilt top at the encouragement of fellow quilters at a retreat she was attending.  It took my breath away, and I offered to quilt it for her so I could take pictures of it.  

The rest is history, as they say!

Quilt Block Mania - September is Occupations from The Inquiring Quilter

Welcome to my stop on the Quilt Block Mania Blog Hop. Each of the designers participating in the hop are sharing a block pattern inspired by this month’s theme, which is Occupations.

I wasn’t sure which occupation I wanted to honor with this month’s theme so I struggled a bit until it came to me: nursing.

My family has a strong connection to nursing. My Aunt Betty was a nurse, even serving in WWII. My mom and her other sister (and a friend shown here) were a volunteer nurse during WWII as well ...

Picket Fence Rectangle Throw Quilt in One Fine Day by Bonnie and Camille! from Busy Hands Quilts

Today I'm sharing another quilt that was finished last year and didn't make it on the blog!  

This is Picket Fence in the vertical layout, one of two layout options included in the quilt pattern.  The other layout in the pattern is every other row of pieced blocks turned, which changes the look of the quilt completely.  

Picket Fence uses precut layer cakes in the smaller sizes and precut layer cakes and jelly rolls in the Queen and King sizes; and specific instructions are given on how to use each type of precut.

My Two New Patterns from The Inquiring Quilter

My first pattern isn’t exactly new, except that it sorta is.

I recently updated my Picnic Under the Stars pattern to include three sizes: Twin, Queen, and King. At the same time, I changed the cover to feature a new Island Batik collection, arriving in stores now. The collection is called Graphix.

As you can see, Graphix is very well, graphic. The strong designs are rendered in black and white. I love adding bright colors with Graphix for that special touch.

You can of course make Picnic Under the Stars using ...
