Was making this as baby gift originally and added lace between the borders to make the blues look a little more girly, but these are my colors and I loved it so much I decided to make a different quilt for the gift and keep this to put on the back of my loveseat. Fabric for blocks was the Lexington line by Minick & Simpson.
This sampler quilt is made from a book I found in my late mother in law's things. Making one block at a time and having to make templates, etc. was very time consuming. I like the way it turned out though. I embroidered the name of each block. Christmas gift for my hubby in memory of his mom.
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.

My mom finally got tired of seeing me make quilts for friends and other family members and requested her own. It's not the fabric or pattern I would have chosen for myself, but when I finished it my 4-year-old said, "That looks like grandma," so I know I got it right. I'll give it to her for Christmas this year.
Castle Dreams is a queen-sized quilt in one of my own patterns, using Honey Honey by Kate Spain. The pattern uses 10" squares with yardage of three fabrics and a background fabric and includes instructions for 6 sizes from baby to king. My patterns are well written with clear and easy-to-read charts, diagrams, and graphics.

Rosewood Lane is a lap quilt in Itty Bitty floral fabrics and is made from a pattern of mine. The pattern includes instructions from wall hanging to king and is fat quarter friendly. The quilt top goes together quickly because of the large blocks. This quilt is for sale in my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/BusyHandsQuilts.

Nautical News is a custom quilt set using Seaworthy fabrics. I couldn't find a pattern or tutorial for the size of quilt blocks I was after, so I wrote the pattern for layer cake squares. The pattern includes 6 sizes from baby to king and is layer cake friendly. I include two lap sizes in my patterns whenever possible, because short people (like me!) don't want a long lap quilt, and tall people do. This pattern is FREE and is available in my pattern shop. http://go-2.it/BusyHandsPatterns
A very dear friend got married on New Years Eve. I made this special quilt just for her and her husband. They take part in Civil War Reenactments and use this quilt to cover anything modern in their tent. Last year I made his & hers matching pillowcases and two bivy sacks to hid more modern goodies. She replaced the rag drawstring with some leathder.
