This week I've been having fun mocking up Around the World in various color schemes.  This quilt pattern is super simple and quick with strip piecing.

Nautical News Quilt in Sweet Pink and Grays! from Busy Hands Quilts

This quilt is a Throw size, but follows the Twin size instructions, omitting the outer border for a more modern look and best use of a 10" layer cake.

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!

I found the perfect fabrics for a Fire version using metallic tone-on-tone ...

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.

Kindred Throw Quilt in Notting Hill! from Busy Hands Quilts


It's exciting to share another quilt in Notting Hill - one of my favorite fabric collections!  I just love the blend of colors together, very softly muted but still with a lot of color; with florals, tone-on-tones, ginghams, and plaids.  It's so yummy!
