Hampton Court Quilt Pattern - the Black Background One! from Busy Hands Quilts

Hampton Court is striking with a black background and bright colors!  This quilt top was made by Kare and quilted and bound by me.



The Design

Hampton Court is based on King Henry VIII's castle, Hampton Court, from the 1500s.  The bricks are varying sizes, and this design can be seen in the brickwork of the exterior of the castle.



Entirely Strip Pieced!

You won't be sewing together individual bricks - that would take far too long!  Let's make quilts quicker so we can make ...

Ombre Gems Throw Quilt in Ombre Confetti Fabric! from Busy Hands Quilts

This week's custom order finish is an Ombre Gems throw quilt in Ombre Confetti fabrics.




The quilt top was made by my sewist, Kare, and quilted and bound by me.  The only way I can take custom quilt orders is to have one of my sewists make the quilt top; I'm too busy with the pattern design side of my business to make the entire quilt myself.  I have found sewists that sew even better than I ...

Nantucket Quilt Pattern - The All Blues One! from Busy Hands Quilts

Today I'm sharing this all blue Nantucket quilt.  It turned out even better than I imagined it would.



Nantucket was so named because the design reminded me of life rings, which reminded me of the sea, which reminded me of Nantucket, a place I've never been, but have sailed past, unbeknownst to me, on a cruise in 2018.  The Harry and Alice version of Nantucket reflects the life rings design even more, to me.



Fabrics in Nantucket the All Blue Version

Fabrics for this quilt were curated from ...

Soulful Girl from Appalachian Quilts

One of the things I truly enjoy about longarming is watching a quilt flimsy come to life once the quilting has begun.  This quilt was no disappointment.  The more I worked with the fabric, the more I fell in love with it.  Not to be prideful, but I absolutely adore this baby quilt!!!


I had auditioned that stripe fabric as sashing and in the little strippy part of the quilt, but it was just too busy.  It just screamed to be the binding.


The allover I chose with Retro Flower.  It just complemented the patterns in the fabrics.


Here is ...
