Modern Prism Quilted Wall Hanging | Finished {or Not!} Friday Linky Party! from Busy Hands Quilts

Welcome to Finished {or Not!} Friday where you can share what you're working on and see what others have been making!

My Finish is a Modern Prism wall hanging!


Modern Prism is a quilt kit I purchased quite a number of years ago from Keepsake Quilting.  It was well aged in my fabric closet and ready to be used.  The pattern and kit make a 60" x 63" quilt, but my client wanted a 30" wall hanging, so I reduced the HSTs to make the requested size.


I cut the squares for a second quilt at the same time ...

Freshly Picked Quilted Table Runner | Finished {or Not!} Friday Linky Party + GIVEAWAY! from Busy Hands Quilts

Welcome to Finished {or Not!} Friday where you can share what you're working on and see what others have been making!

My apologies for not posting Finished {or Not!} Friday last week; time just got away from me.

My Finish is a Freshly Picked table runner made from a charm pack!  The charm pack and pattern were included in the September 2017 Sew Sampler Box.  Wouldn't you say it had aged enough and was ready to be sewn?!?  Yep, I think so too.


A charm pack and some yardage are all it takes to make this generously sized ...

Welcome to Finished {or Not!} Friday where you can share what you're working on and see what others have been making!

My Finish is a baby size Play Date Quilt!  This is a two-color version of Shannon's quilt pattern.


The quilt is made with four grays and four aquas for a modern look.

New material coming! from Maria the Quilter

I know you probably come here for the photos, because, well let’s be honest: in the quilting world, words mean far less than photos. I can explain a stitch but when you see a picture of it, that’s WAY more meaningful. In person? EVEN better!

What I’m here to say is that I am here. I haven’t been posting pix – I had a bit of an issue with my tools but am almost back to full capability there. I have been busy writing on my personal blog (here).

So in the meantime, PLEASE please visit my ...

Prairie Sisters Farmhouse Fabric Tour from A Little Bit Biased

Good morning friends!  Today it's my turn to share some fun projects I made for the 
Prairie Sisters Farmhouse Fabric Tour!


Prairie Sisters is a new fabric line by Poppie Cotton and is available in stores now.


I love the soft colors, the variety of prints and the farmhouse feel of this line!
It was nice working with a softer palette than I'm used to.  
I find that I'm craving the softer, calmer colors these days!


I decided to try out this pattern that I've had my eye on for quite some time!
It's called ...

Love Multiplied Lap Quilt in Seaside | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party! from Busy Hands Quilts

Welcome to Finished {or Not!} Friday where you can share what you're working on and see what others have been making!

So I did forget to schedule Finished {or Not!} Friday again.  It may have something to do with my worrying about this winter storm with snow.  :(  I worry because I have many peoples whom I ♥♥♥ on the road when classes aren't canceled.  That's nice word order, right??  It sounds like I love them only when classes aren't canceled.  ;)  

Another 2018 finish is a Love Multiplied Lap Quilt - a Plus Quilt set on point!

Postcard From Sweden Baby Quilt | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party! from Busy Hands Quilts

Welcome to Finished {or Not!} Friday where you can share what you're working on and see what others have been making!

Another 2018 Finish - a Postcard From Sweden Baby Quilt made with blocks leftover from previous Postcard quilts I've made.  I consider this my last PFS quilt since I rarely make custom quilts anymore, so I won't be stocking the 36 Kona Cottons that are included in this quilt.



The backing is a mottled gray solid from Craftsy that is very versatile as backing since it fits so many quilt themes.


Quilt Stats:
Pattern:  Postcard From Sweden ...

Calling All quilters Who Hate Binding Their Quilt’s. from Asianartandquilt's Blog

Binding a quilt can be difficult & the instructions confusing. I found a very easy to use tool accidentally on UTube, it finishes the ends perfect every time, so easy you won’t believe it!

Welcome to the Getaway Blog Hop!

2018 Island Batik Ambassadors have been busy with some secret sauce sewing lately ... and today I can share mine!  

Boho is a stunning new fabric collection by Island Batik, made with the happiest of purples, pinks, oranges and yellows with a splash of turquoise.  The bold colors pair so well with Brick Cottage Lane {2} where they really stand out from the background.  All but two of the fabrics in the Boho collection are in this quilt.


This is Brick Cottage Lane {2} in a generous queen size.  The pattern comes in 5 sizes ...

Welcome to Finished {or Not!} Friday where you can share what you're working on and see what others have been making!

Another Finish from 2018 is a Sunrise Over the Horizon lap quilt!


This is the second Sunrise Over the Horizon quilt I've made, and I will be making a queen size as a custom order in the next few weeks.  It will have Kona Cerise {a beautiful purply/pinky solid!} instead of the gray, along with two matching pillow shams.  I typically do not make custom quilts anymore, but every once in awhile, my NO button malfunctions ...

Triangle Table Runner Quilts | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party! from Busy Hands Quilts

Welcome to Finished {or Not!} Friday where you can share what you're working on and see what others have been making!

My Finish is two triangle table runners!  I'm still featuring finishes from last year's 70 quilts.  There just aren't enough Fridays to show them all in one year without doubling some up.  It's a good thing I took the month of December off from quilting and won't have any fresh finishes for a few weeks!


The quilts are quilted with different designs; one is a flame design, the other is diagonal plaid bias ...

How do you find your voice among many? from Asianartandquilt's Blog

A former client commissioned a new quilt, she chose abstract fireworks as the theme. Fireworks are a common subject in art & photos. There are only so many ways to picture exploding flashes of color in a dark sky, so there is bound to be some similarities. How does one […]

How to find your own voice amid many from Asianartandquilt's Blog

A former client wanted to commission another art quilt. The theme she chose was abstract fireworks. Fireworks are common subject matter in many photos and artwork. Since there are only so many ways to portray exploding colors in a dark sky, the images can be pretty similar. The challenge becomes […]

Welcome to Finished {or Not!} Friday where you can share what you're working on and see what others have been making!

My Finish is a Birch Farm layer cake lap quilt!  This fabric has been in the stash for a long time, last used two years ago to make a Triple Barn Star lap quilt.


The coordinating backing is one of my favorite prints from the collection.  See those cute owls?  I used the owl fabric as the binding to create a frame of pop.


The pattern calls for layer cake squares, but I had only scraps to use ...

Island Batik Wonky Star Twin Quilt | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party! from Busy Hands Quilts

Welcome to Finished {or Not!} Friday where you can share what you're working on and see what others have been making!

My Finish is a twin size wonky star quilt in beautiful batiks!  Island Batik Ambassadors are given monthly challenges for projects to create with batik fabrics, and December's challenge is whimsical or wonky.  I settled on wonky stars because I had the perfect 10" square stack and some coordinating yardage for the star centers, border and binding.


While wonky stars may look easy peasy, free from rules, I found that was not the case.  I had to ...

Christmas Log Cabin Wreath Quilt | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party! from Busy Hands Quilts

Island Batik Ambassadors are given monthly challenges using Island Batik fabrics, and November's assignment is log cabins.  I love log cabin quilts but actually rarely make them, so it was good to visit this timeless block again.

An internet search led me to this design, a Log Cabin Christmas Wreath.  With the generosity of Island Batik in providing fabrics for projects, I had just the right fabrics on hand for this quilt, most of them from the Alpine Jingle collection.


The Christmas Wreath quilt really needed some holiday quilting, so this beautiful holly and berries design seemed the perfect ...
