Winter Solstice Rainbow Throw Quilt! from Busy Hands Quilts

This week's finish is a Winter Solstice Throw quilt in a rainbow of Peppered Cottons.  The gray chains are made with two shades of gray for added texture.  These quilt blocks were made to test the pattern last spring, and they were set aside until this week.

Winter Solstice has been kitted by Connecting Threads in Faux Linen, a lovely textured-looking fabric in solid-ish colors.  Our color schemes are very similar which is amazing since I was just using a fat quarter bundle I had on hand.

Scrappy Patches Twin Quilt in Nautical Prints! from Busy Hands Quilts

Another finish from 2019 was a twin size Scrappy Patches in nautical fabrics.  This quilt is the new cover for my Scrappy Patches pattern.

Size:  60" x 83"

Mini Picket Fence Quilted Table Runners and Toppers! from Busy Hands Quilts

Mini Picket Fence is a smaller version of my full-size Picket Fence layer cake quilt pattern which has been super popular since its release several years ago.  The mini version uses charm packs to create fun little picket fence blocks, and the pattern includes 4 sizes - Small Topper, Small Runner, Large Topper, and Large Runner.  That's two rectangular sizes and two square sizes.  You know I want to make my patterns worth buying, so I give you loads of size options every time.    

Did you know that those tiny blocks are strip pieced?!?  If you know me, you know ...

Rosewood Lane Quilt Pattern Update! from Busy Hands Quilts

It's Rosewood Lane's turn for an update!  Last year most of my pattern covers were updated, some patterns were also overhauled inside, and I'm down to the last few needing updated.  Now there are only three pattern covers awaiting updating - Home Awaits, Picket Fence, and Falling Stars.  

Joyce of Liberty Green Quilt Shop in Akron, Ohio has been a consistent wholesale customer of my quilt patterns.  She requested printed copies of Rosewood Lane after seeing the Rosewood Lane in Anna Maria Horner fabrics that sold in my quilt shop last year and requested an AMH quilt for ...

Row Addition Baby Boy Quilt! from Busy Hands Quilts

Another 2019 finish that needs it's day to shine on the blog is a Row Addition baby quilt!  

This quilt design is from the book Modern Plus Sign Quilts and is one of many fantastic Plus quilts in the book which is written by Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs and Paige of Quilted Blooms.  I made two baby quilts at the same time for their book hop in 2018, but it took me a year to get this one quilted and bound.  You can see the other one right here.

The quilting reminds me of starry, fiery fireworks.  It ...

Granny's Square Patch Throw Quilt in Tula Pink! from Busy Hands Quilts

Granny's Square Patch in Tula Pink is another quilt I made last year but didn't blog about.  I used ultra modern Tula Pink fabrics in this quilt to show that an old fashioned design and modern fabrics can meld quite well.

In keeping with the modern fabrics, I chose a hexie quilting design, though even a feathery design would have looked lovely as well.  Sometimes choosing a quilting design is paralyzing and you've just got to just jump in and GO or it will never get done.  

This lovely blue/purple circular design was found in the ...

You may or may not know that I am a strip piecing quilter at heart.  Strip piecing is sewing pieces together before cutting them again, rather than cutting small pieces and then sewing the pieces back together; it's a time ...

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 ...

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 ...
