Finished or Not Friday {a Linky Party!} + Jelly Roll Waves in Black and Pink

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!

I am still on vacation at my parents' house in Arizona, so please forgive me for not visiting and pinning your links for the past few weeks.  Internet time is infrequent here.

My finish to share is, yep, another Jelly Roll Waves lap quilt in black and pinks.  This is my favorite of the four JRW quilts I made. This quilt measures 50" x 60" and is a super fun pattern to make.


The fabric is London by someone; I don't remember who right now.  I left out the blues and browns from the collection.  The background is Kona Black.

Shannon, this back's for you!  She usually makes pieced backings, and in my effort to use as much stash as possible this year, I'm following her lead.

Quilting is a meandering loopy stitch in black thread.  I will be doing these loops more often - they're fun to do and oh so cute.


The most viewed link from last week was this cute Scrappy Sprouts Mini quilt by Laura at Scraps of Life!

If you want your quilt featured here next week, be sure to put a link back to this post in your post or tag @busyhandsquilts on Instagram, AND link directly to your blog post so I don't have to hunt it down.



Have you taken the Fabric Personality Quiz?  It's fun to see if the computer chooses what you choose in fabric!  My result was batiks, and I haven't sewn with them for several years and have zero in the stash!


It's your turn to share your finish {or not}!  What's welcome at this party?  
  • Any in-progress or finished project made with fabric, yarn, or thread is welcome!  
  • Projects from this week only!
  • ♥ ♥ PLEASE!  Link to the actual blog post, not your home page.  We'd like to see your post and don't have the time to go hunt it down.
  • Include the Finished or Not Friday button or a text link that links back to this week's link-up in order to share the fun.  No, I won't delete your link if you don't, but hey, adding a link in your post is just being friendly, so be friendly and share!!
Do you want your project to be featured here next week?  Then you must include a link back to this post AND you must link directly to the page the picture is on!!

I will pin your links to my Finished or Not Friday Pinterest board to get your link more exposure.

Yes! That is my kind of backing!!! Great job using those scraps. I love the loopy quilting too. I'm starting to rub off on you!

I love that backing too. I need to head over to that pattern I think I have a jelly roll waiting for this pattern

I've been doing scrappy backings too, but yours looks way nicer than mine!

Love the black background. It really sets off the pinks and makes them pop.

Great finish. I love the pieced back.
