Kindred Throw Quilt Pattern - Another look at the Blues, Aqua and Yellow One!

Today I'm sharing the Kindred quilt in cool tones.  I have lots of pictures that I haven't shared yet, so here we go!

Kindred is an easy quilt pattern that goes together so nicely.  The quilt pattern includes pressing instructions so all of the seams nest, which makes assembling the quilt top a breeze.

The Throw size Kindred quilt uses only 15 fat quarters.

The Kindred quilt pattern is available in the Busy Hands Quilts shop.

The Kindred Quilt Pattern

Kindred is an easy quilt pattern that combines HST blocks with strips to create the blocks.  The design creates subtle secondary designs across the quilt top.  These hidden designs were a pleasant surprise when I made the quilt top, as they weren't visible on a digital mockup.  

The Kindred quilt pattern includes five sizes and is fat quarter friendly, in addition to two accent fabrics.  This is a great pattern to use your stash of fat quarters.

  • Baby - 8 FQs
  • Throw - 15 FQs
  • Twin XL - 24 FQs
  • Queen - 36 FQs
  • King - 41 FQs

Those Beautiful Cool Fabrics!

This Kindred quilt is made with a Boundless fat quarter bundle that I had in my stash.  The fat quarter bundle includes modern prints, most that read as solids, in blues, aquas, yellows, and a splash of green.  Along with the print fat quarters, Kona Cotton Solids in White and Riviera are used as the accent fabrics.

Optionally, the binding can be cut from the fat quarters for a scrappy binding, and the binding on this quilt is scrappy.  It adds such a fun finish to the quilt.  The pattern also includes the yardage needed for the binding if a single fabric is desired.

The backing on this quilt is a wide back called Vine Maze which we stock in The Wide Back Shop.  It's a great print that hides the quilt stitching on the back of the quilt, which most of the time is my preference.  I like when the quilting blends into the backing fabric rather than standing out.

Longarm Machine Quilting 

The quilting design is Curling Ribbons, done in white thread on my HandiQuilter Fusion with Pro-Stitcher.  It's one of my favorite quilting designs and works so well on many quilts.  It adds lovely texture to both the front and back of the quilt.

Here you can see a good view of the backing fabric.  We carry this backing fabric in navy, as well as red in The Wide Back Shop.

The brightly-colored quilt pictured on the ladder is Gridwork, a Busy Hands Quilts design.   That pattern includes four sizes and is jelly roll friendly and super quick with strip piecing.  It can be found in our shop right here.

The Kindred quilt pattern is available in the Busy Hands Quilts shop.
