A few years ago I bought a Fatquater bundle of gorgeous orange and terracotta civil war reproductions. I had a pumpkin theme in mind. But somehow I never got started...until I saw this amazing living room my friends created. On a black tiled floor stood a huge terracotta sofa. All of a sudden I had this vision of orange charms and dark framing. To add a bit of sparkle some yellow and cream toned charms were introduced. The quilt finally got rather big and the quilting was quite a job.
Introducing Rosewood Lane, a quick and easy quilt that is truly a weekend project for twin and smaller quilts. I love that it looks scrappy yet is made from one block which makes for quick chain piecing. Rosewood Lane includes instructions for six sizes from wall to king. Fabric requirements are given in fat quarters, and the pattern also includes a chart detailing how many pieces of each size to cut if you're sewing a scrappy version. The cover quilt is a twin made from Just Wing It by Moda. This pattern is available for purchase here: http://bit.ly/ShopBusyHandsPatterns
Here's my latest finish. It's for my daughter in California. The pattern is actually for a 33" square table topper, but my daughter liked the pattern. So I made all the blocks and leaves 1-1/2 times larger than the pattern was and made enough blocks to create this queen 95" square quilt. It's made with civil war reproduction prints. EDIT: Forgot to mention that I quilted it on my Janome 6600.
Boundless Beauty is a quilt pattern I designed that will look great in any fabric collection or all scrappy! The pattern includes traditional piecing for jelly roll strips, as well as strip piecing for scraps or yardage. There are instructions for 5 sizes from Baby to King. This quilt is a twin size and is made from Flower Sugar fabrics and Kona White with a backing of super soft solid white and a binding of Riley Blake red/white gingham. You can purchase this pattern in my Craftsy shop: http://go-2.it/BusyHandsPatterns I offer discount on multiple pattern purchases through my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/BusyHandsPatterns Thank you!
I started this 2 years ago and set the top aside. I finally got around to quilting it. It is from English Paper Piecing by Vicki Bellino. As soon as I saw this pattern, I fell in love with it and had to make it. It is suppose to be all hand sewn, but I'm not able to do that. So I adapted the pattern so I could piece it on the sewing machine and with no Y-seams. The only hand sewing is the appliques and the backside of the binding. It is made of Civil War fabric and machine quilted. I'm keeping this one for me. Thanks for looking. :)
