Scrappy Patches {Revised Pattern!}

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


Re-introducing Scrappy Patches!  I like the look of a scrappy quilt, but I want to know that my pieces fit together without scratching my head, trying to figure out how to get the puzzle into the size of quilt I'm after.  My intention with Scrappy Patches was make a quilt that looked like I randomly sewed strips together when there was actually a plan in place.  She fits the bill!


I've revised my Scrappy Patches pattern, and it's now ready for purchase!  If you purchased this pattern in the past from Craftsy, you'll find an updated copy is available to download through your Craftsy account.  If you purchased through Etsy, I will be emailing you a revised copy.  


Scrappy Patches comes in 7 sizes from wall hanging to king and is jelly roll, fat quarter, and yardage friendly!  You'll also be happy to know there are very few seams to match!


The backing is a Happy Tones print from Michael Miller.


Most of the photo shoot looked like this!

Nautical News Custom Twin Quilt + Pattern {it's FREE!}

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


My latest custom order is a twin quilt set using Seaworthy fabrics.  Because it has nautical fabrics and seems so, well, nautical, I named it Nautical News.  LOL!  I couldn't find a pattern or tutorial for the size of blocks I was after, so I wrote this one up as a full pattern which includes directions for 6 sizes from baby to king.  It's available for free in my Craftsy shop.  


The quilting is organic wavy lines on Mrs.Singer.  She and I got into the groove, and the waves look so nautical!!


My customer picked this pillow sham from the Shams With Style book.  I've said it before, and I'll say it again - this is the best quilting book I have ever purchased.  I've used it more than any quilting-related book I own.  It includes instructions for many different styles of pillow shams in 9 sizes.  Yes!  9 sizes for each pillow style!


The backing is the cutest sailboat print!  Note to self:  Think twice, cut once.  Directional fabrics are directional, after all!  Yep, I cut the backing going the wrong way after thinking once, not twice.


Quilt Stats:
  • Pattern:  Nautical News, a free full quilt pattern by Busy Hands Quilts.
  • Size:  Twin
  • Fabric:  Seaworthy and Kona White
  • Batting:  100% cotton
  • Backing:  Seaworthy
  • Quilting:  Organic wavy stitch on Mrs.Singer, my antique 31-15.
  • Binding:  Seaworthy red stripe
  • Value:  Won't you sail away with me?
Here's the cover of Shams With Style.

To-Do Tuesday {a linky party!} + Scrappy Patches Pattern Update!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


Welcome to To-Do Tuesday!  I'm hosting today for Christine over at Stitch All the Things!  What's on your to-do list this week?

My list includes working on the New Brick Cottage Lane pattern.  After I finish the pattern details, I'll be sewing up a queen size using these gorgeous collections - Color Theory and Simply Color!  Dontcha love it's rainbowy goodness?!?  And I get to keep it!  And no, the queen size doesn't take 80 fat quarters, but with this pattern, the more the merrier!


Today I started a quilt for the new cover of Scrappy Patches and discovered there are some errors in the pattern.  If you've purchased it and it's on your list to make soon, please hold off.  All buyers will receive a revised pattern for free, either through the Craftsy platform or by email if purchased through Etsy.  Craftsy automatically notifies buyers when a new pattern file is uploaded by the designer.  This is the benefit of buying through my Craftsy shop.  My cover quilt will be made from Mojito - as happy as can be!
