Outlook Pattern Release | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party | TGIFF!

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 a new pattern, Outlook, written in 6 sizes including Baby, Small Lap, Large Lap, Twin, Queen, and King!  Directions include layer cake squares or yardage, and the pattern is Accuquilt friendly {but not required}!


Outlook is named after the small town my grandparents lived in when I was a child, which was about 15 miles from our home.  I have many fond memories of time spent at their house, mostly in the kitchen and around the table and in their huge yard with the tallest maple trees ever.  They moved next door to my parents when I was about 15, and it was wonderful to have them next door during those years I was still at home.

Quilt Stats:

Pattern:  Outlook by Busy Hands Patterns

Fabric:  Alison Glass Sunprints 2017 with black and white

Outlook in Rambling Rose by Sandy Gervais is one of my favorite quilts I've ever made.  It's soothing country colors remind me so much of my mom.  This is also a Large Lap.

Shannon of The Flemings Nine edited and tested the pattern for me, and her version with medium tones is just beautiful!


And here is a mockup of Outlook in Miss Kate by Bonnie & Camille. The fabrics are ready to go, waiting for their turn on the cutting mat!


One of my all-time favorite fabric combos is Handmade by Bonnie and Camille with Moda Cross Weave in black, which reads as a deep, rich, textured gray, so I mocked it up, too!  This fabric is also ready to cut!
