Oh My Darling Lap Quilt | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party!

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


Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My Finish is an Oh My Darling lap quilt made with Garden Club by RJR Fabrics.


I was approached by RJR Fabrics last fall to submit some of my quilt patterns in their upcoming fabric lines, and they accepted three of them.  Eight months later I can show you the second of the three quilts because the Garden Club fabric line was released last week.  This quilt was part of the super secret sauce sewing I was buried in during the month of May when I had 7 {yes 7!} quilts to complete in a 6-week period.


This quilt is the new cover quilt for the updated Oh My Darling pattern.  If you purchased the pattern from Craftsy, you should have received a notice about the revised file.


Oh My Darling comes in 6 sizes, including Baby, Small Lap, Large Lap, Twin, Queen, and King.  The pattern is jelly roll friendly and uses strip piecing.

Quilt Stats:
Pattern:  Oh My Darling, available here.
Size:  58" x 68"
Fabric:  Garden Club by RJR with RJR Cotton Supreme Solid in Optical White
Backing:  A light peach print from the Garden Club fabric collection.
Batting:  Hobbs Heirloom Wool
Quilting:  Bread Basket on Gratitude in white thread.

Busy Hands Quilts Destash!!

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


It's Destash Time!!  My business is moving more toward quilt designing and pattern writing and away from making custom quilts or even making quilts just to use fabric I have on hand.  I don't have time to do it all, so I've chosen to prioritize designing and pattern writing.  Because of this, I'm finding my extensive fabric stash is weighing heavily on me as it stares at me everyday.  I have a huge amount of fabric that I'll never use, awesome though it is.  So...

I'm destashing a ton of my fabric stash on Instagram, and you're invited to the party!  Check it out here!  I will be adding fabrics on a regular basis, likely daily for awhile.  

US shipping only, Priority Mail only.  To purchase an item, comment SOLD on the post and DM me your paypal address, and I will send you an invoice to pay.  Combined shipping available for any items purchased on the same day.  If you see an item there, it is most likely still available.  Happy Shopping!
