Twin Rosewood Lane Quilt | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party from Busy Hands Quilts

Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My finish is a Rosewood Lane Twin XL quilt in Strawberry Fizz.  This is a quick pattern for an "organized" scrappy quilt.


This is a twin XL at 98" long.  Lands alive!  I made extra blocks and intended to use them for a baby quilt but just kept adding rows to the quilt without counting. I realized my mistake before quilting it, but forgot to take them off and even made the batting in the larger size without noticing.  So twin XL it is!

Rainbow Picnic Blanket Sew Along from Busy Hands Quilts

I recently participated in the Rainbow Picnic Sew Along hosted by Rachel at Stitched in Color.  From the stash I pulled a Kona Cotton New Bright layer cake and a canvas print that I accidentally purchased years back, thinking it was quilting cotton when I ordered it.


Quilting is a doodle design with many different design elements merged together and is done in black thread.


Oh my, the backing, just delish!  You can imagine my disappointment when I opened the package and it was canvas instead of quilting cotton!  I'm so happy to use it up!

Star Crossed Rainbow Lap Quilt | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party! from Busy Hands Quilts

Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My Finish is a lap size Star Crossed Rainbow with a white background!


This quilt is made with one half of a Kona jelly roll.  The pattern gives the layout of each color to create this exact quilt and utilizes strip piecing for quick assembly.


This quilt top laid on the stair rail for quite awhile because I couldn't figure out how to quilt it.  It wasn't asking for feathers, swirls, or flowers, and I ended up choosing interlocking loops for a more ...

Folkwood Baby Quilt | May and June Stash Report from Busy Hands Quilts

Included in the June Stash Builder Box that I won as part of the Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict were three coordinating yards of Folkwood by Dear Stella.  


As soon as I saw the fabrics, I knew they were destined to be a Disappearing Nine Patch quilt, because the prints were the perfect variation in color and design size, and because I had zero fabrics in the stash to coordinate with them.  I'd been wanting to make a D9 quilt, so it was a win-win for the fabric and for me - it got ...

Pretty in Pink Baby Quilt | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party! from Busy Hands Quilts

Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My Finish is a Pretty in Pink Baby quilt, begun in February 2015 as a quilt along.  The blocks were complete and just needed sewn together.  I have no idea why this quilt took so long to finish other than it got buried in the stash.



Two piece backing, and oh my, what fun quilting those adorable daisies!


Quilt Stats:
  • Pattern:  Pretty in Pink from this book.
  • Size:  Baby, 36.5" x 50"
  • Fabric:  Twice as Nice by Riley Blake.

Sweet Blue and Red Baby Quilt | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party! from Busy Hands Quilts

Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My Finish is sweet baby quilt in blues, pinks, and red.  It was a quick project in order to have something to share today!


I cut these squares out several years ago, so it's exciting to get them sewn up and into a quilt.


The quilting is a fun design that includes swirls, circles, and flowers.


 This quilt is for sale in my quilt shop!

Quilt Stats:
  • Pattern:  Half dropped patches.

Rainbow Star Baby Quilt | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party from Busy Hands Quilts

Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My Finish is a Rainbow Star baby quilt.  I used this quilt to practice wavy line quilting on Gratitude in preparation for quilting my king size Postcard From Sweden quilt.


The digital edge-to-edge design is Modern Hourglass, which I purchased because it eliminates the stopping and starting at every pass across the quilt.  It will complete as many passes as the throat space allows, without stopping, and is a 90" panto, but this is simple to crop or expand to the quilt width.  I had ...

Foxes and Hedgehogs Wholecloth Baby Quilt from Busy Hands Quilts

I recently made a few baby quilts in order to practice quilting wavy lines on Gratitude for the custom king Postcard From Sweden quilt.  I figured I could make the lines by hand, but since Gratitude is computerized, why not let her do the work?  


The first is a wholecloth foxes and hedgehogs quilt.  The quilting is top to bottom wavy lines with a stop and a start at every line.  I soon realized that this would take a lot of time on a king size quilt, stitching out one narrow row, stopping, moving the machine back to the left ...

Brick Cottage Lane 2 | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party from Busy Hands Quilts

Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My Finish is a king size Brick Cottage Lane {2} quilt.  I made this quilt top last summer, and it's finally finished!


Some of you saw this last week, but it's the only thing I have ready to share today.  My other sewing this week was my upcoming pattern, and it's not quite ready to share.

And here it is on a full size bed, so the overhang won't be this much on a queen or king.


The quilting is an ...

A Giveaway at Finished or Not Friday {a Linky Party!} + California Girl Log Cabin Baby Quilt from Busy Hands Quilts

Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My finish is a log cabin baby quilt in California Girl, a custom order through my quilt shop.  It's as sweet as can be!  The quilt measures approximately 40" x 48".

I've been hoarding California Girl fabrics for several years and was delighted that my customer chose this collection for her granddaughter's quilt.  There was a large pile of 16-patch quilt blocks in my California Girl stash, and I've designed a quilt around them and am in the process of writing ...

Finished or Not Friday - Reflections Quilt from Pamela Quilts

This was my UFO project for this month - it's a scrap quilt made out of 2 1/2 inch strips.  I've made several similar quilts using Moda Scrap Bag collections.  This one was a pretty eclectic mix of fabrics, but it made up into a pretty nice scrappy quilt!

I added a scrappy back as well - I seem to be on a roll with these, and am loving using up some odds and ends that aren't big enough for a whole back, but are too big to add to my scrap bins!
Blue, Green and Yellow with ...

More UFO finishes for November! from Pamela Quilts

I've been having such a blast quilting now that my machine is in tip-top shape again!  Well worth the $$ spent, now I don't have to fight the skipped stitches and breaking threads like I was before.  I hadn't realized how tense it was making me - just waiting for the next time it would break, especially because it was pretty predictable.  I just knew every time I would sew in that one direction that I would either get skipped stitches or my thread would break.  Quilting is so much more enjoyable without that anxiety.

I finished both of ...

November UFO number one: Monkey Around In Jungle Fabric from Pamela Quilts

I finally feel caught up enough to give myself permission to work on some of my own projects over the weekend - I kept walking by the quilts tops I had ready to quilt and sighing because I couldn't get to them last month!  I am challenging myself to get as many of these quilted as I can by the end of the year.  Somehow I keep trying to clean out my sewing room and it feels like quicksand, the more I thrash around trying to get free, the deeper in I get!

This is another version of my Monkey ...

A Little Big Idea from Pippa Patchwork

It was actually my mom who first suggested I try making mini quilt blankies. Initially I was charmed by the idea since I have my own little ones now, and can appreciate how much these small accessories are appreciated (let’s just say they are perfect for peek-a-boo). But the more I make, the more I’ve fallen in love with this small format. It’s incredibly rewarding to be able to play with so many different patterns, to be able to dabble in every stage of the quilt creation process within a couple of days.

So, since I’m ...
