Hand Picked Quilt Pattern - a Throw Quilt in Petal Power!

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


Meet the Hand Picked quilt pattern!  Hand Picked is a timeless jelly roll friendly quilt pattern.  You can make TWO Baby quilts with one jelly roll and two additional strips plus a background fabric!

This jelly roll friendly quilt pattern is available in the Busy Hands Quilts shop.


Hand Picked Quilt Pattern


I'm super excited to share this quilt pattern with you today!  I love how the design turned out with these happy fabrics.  

You can use a jelly roll or strips from your stash, or cut strips from fat quarters or yardage; just come up with the number of WOF strips listed in the pattern.  

I would consider this pattern an intermediate level quilt pattern due to the on-point quilt setting and pieced setting triangles.



Petal Power Fabric by Moda Fabrics


This sweet fabric is Petal Power by Me and My Sister Designs for Moda Fabrics.  I love how cheerful and happy it is with so many fun prints and colors in the collection.  There are florals, ginghams, rainbows, stripes, and tone-on-tones - just so much goodness - in bright pink, teal, yellor orange, and purple.  You'll find Petal Power here and here.

The backing fabric is the rainbow-ish dot print from the collection. It's just so refreshing and fun!  :)

The binding fabric is the teal check print from the collection for a bright pop to finish off the quilt.



All the Sizes!


The Hand Picked quilt pattern includes all of the sizes - 5 in all.  I enjoy the math, so I include as many sizes as possible.

    Baby quilt

    Throw quilt

    Twin XL bed size (perfect for college dorm beds)

    Queen bed size

    King bed size






Longarm Quilting


This Hand Picked quilt was quilted with a daisy design in white thread to blend in.  The design, with Hobbs Heirloom Cotton Poly batting, created lovely texture to the quilt.  Quilted on my HandiQuilter Fusion with ProStitcher.

This is a Throw size quilt, made by my professional sewist, Kare, and quilted and bound by me.



Strip Pieced


Hand Picked is entirely strip pieced to speed up the process.  Even the pieced setting triangles are strip pieced.  You'll make strip sets with varying numbers of strips in each set, then cut them apart and sew them into blocks.  

I love to include strip piecing in my patterns when it makes the most sense to do so.  Let's make more quilts, faster!
