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 ...

Play Date 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!

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.


Play Date comes in Baby and Lap sizes and uses the Tri Recs ruler.  If you want to get your feet wet using a triangle ruler, this is the pattern for you.  It's not an overwhelming number of triangle blocks to make, so this ...

Donation Quilt Top from Wedding Dress Blue

For the past few years, I make at least one quilt for donation to the local children’s hospital where Sparkle Jane had life-saving heart surgery when she was 12.

DSC01421

This is the top for this year.  It is based on a tutorial you can find HERE.

DSC01423.JPG

I sized it up and altered the colors.  Also, I cut setting triangles to size rather than trimming off squares. It does required mitered corners in the border, but they turned out better than I have done in the past.

I love the look of the basic idea and look forward to getting ...

unfinished lines from Ritacor

a primeira vez que usei estas palavras para dar nome a um quilt, foi há 3 anos, quando fiz esta peça inspirada numa música da Patti Smith. fiquei com muita vontade de explorar todas as potencialidades das linhas de tecido, especialmente do contraste que podiam fazer com o fundo branco. no mês passado, fiz uma … More unfinished lines

Signs of Spring from Quilting through Rose-colored Trifocals!

It's a sunny day here in Northeast Ohio so I had a wander around the yard and my favorite park looking for signs of spring.  
I had to push back some leaf litter to get the full view of these charming crocus -- love that yellow cup at the base of each flower!  I'll have to mark this clump and dig it up for separating later this spring -- spread that loveliness around a bit! 
The hellebore feel late but they are coming along and should be in full bloom in another week!
Love snowdrops and have been working for ...

I May Have A Scrap Problem... A Disappearing Act! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

As you probably already know, I was fortunate enough to attend QuiltCon last week.  I signed up for a class called Dynamic Quilts with Solids, taught by Nydia Kehnle.  Considering how many solid scraps I have, you can guess that I was really excited!  We were instructed to bring about 125 7.5" squares, in at least 25 different colors.  Well, I went nuts, pulled everything I could cut a 7.5" square out of, without rhyme or reason, and showed up to class.


This is the class instructor, Nydia Kehnle, and one of her fabulous quilts!  We ...

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.

I May Have a Scrap Problem... What a Month! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

We are in the final days of January, and so it's time to review the month, scrap-wise.  Even though my scraps still seem to be replicating themselves while I sleep, I did make some progress this month.  

At the beginning of January, I decided to work on my "String Hamper of Shame" and also to work with my solids scraps to cut 7.5" squares for a QuiltCon class.  


This tub is full of 8.5" wide pieces of strings, which I created after pressing a bunch of strings from my hamper.  And no, it didn't ...

Sunrise Over the Horizon Lap 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 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 ...

Fancy Little Mug Rugs from Solid Stars from Amy Made That

Hello, Friends!
I have a fun little gift project to share today!



I made three little mug rugs, using
some 6 1/2" star blocks that I made
a short long time ago. 

{Ahem...time flies.}

You can read more about the Moda Sweetwater solid bundle
of fabrics that I used, in this post.




I had such fun stitching up these solid blocks!
I used one of them on the back of a little table runner,


Hmmm...solid blocks do tend to show "mistakes", 
don't they?
I'm pretty sure I've ...

Not Precarious 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 Not Precarious baby quilt in 90 Kona Cotton solids!  This quilt is made from the second set of strip bargello panels which I made for the Stash Statement Book Hop by Kelly of My Quilt Infatuation.  You can read about the Precarious quilt I made with the first set of panels over here.



This quilt, Not Precarious, is a play on words - the first quilt was stacked precariously, and this one the colors are hung securely, not precariously!

I'm working ...

In the Shadow of the Plus in Modern Patchwork from MMM Quilts

I can finally write about my quilt which is in the current issue of Modern Patchwork! You can get your copy now in major stores and bookstores, or click the link in the sidebar to purchase online.



It started with my fifth design, back on February 10, that I drew in the second #30quiltdesignschallenge2018 I hosted on Instagram this past spring. The design got a ton of interest and likes, and I knew it was a good'un, so I removed it from Instagram. I played with it a bit and came up with the shadowed plus signs floating on ...

Baby Postcard From Sweden 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 baby Postcard From Sweden quilt!  Do you remember the Postcard Quilt Along that Sandra over at MMM Quilts hosted?  Me too.  Mmm hmm.  The one ended three months ago.  Better finished late than never!


This quilt is made with blocks leftover from previous Postcard From Sweden quilts I've made, so the placement of the blocks doesn't match the pattern exactly, but I did try to reproduce the general transition of colors shown in the original quilt.

Fairground from I'm Studio Lou

So today I can share a quilt I’ve been working on for the RJR ‘What Shade are you’ Blog hop. Apparently I like all the colours!! The quilt I made is named Fairground, because it reminds me of the spinning rides at the fair (which I’m too scared to go on by the way!) Here’s […]
