Today I'm sharing the Hand Picked rainbow quilt! This cute quilt might be one of my favorite quilts that I've ever made. It looks scrappy (though it's a single fabric collection). It's a rainbow. It's cute. It checks all of the boxes!!
The Hand Picked quilt pattern works great for using up your scrap bins or precuts. The pattern is fairly quick with strip piecing, too.
And ... we have quilt kits too! Each quilt kit will make two quilts - a Baby and a Throw! BONUS!!
All the Quilt Sizes
The Hand Picked quilt pattern includes 5 sizes - Baby, Throw, Twin XL, Queen, and King. I love spoiling you with all of the sizes! The Twin XL is perfect for college dorm beds which are 5" longer than a standard Twin mattress.
Strip Pieced Pattern
The Hand Picked quilt pattern is strip pieced which really speeds up the process and helps with accuracy. You'll make strip sets with varying numbers of strips, then sub-cut them into segments and sew the segments into blocks. The height of the strip sets is important in this pattern to make assembling the quilt top easier.
Hand Picked Rainbow Quilt Kits!
We have stocked quilt kits in these fabrics! The quilt kit makes two quilts from the bundle of fabrics included. The fat quarter bundle includes enough fabric to cut enough strips for the Baby and Throw sizes. The white FQs can be used as the background in the Baby size, but not the Throw size. The quilt kits include enough white background fabric for both the Baby and Throw, so using the white fat quarters as the background in the Baby size isn't required. The green fabric is the binding for both quilts.
The Hand Picked Rainbow Quilt Kits are available in the Busy Hands Quilts shop. As always, there are a limited number available, so grab them while you can!
Quick and Easy Quilt Pattern
The Hand Picked quilt pattern is quick and easy. It's just a bunch of straight-line sewing, cutting, and sewing back together again. That's the story of quilting in a nutshell! I love it when I can sit down and do brainless sewing, feeding the strips through over and over again, resting the brain, and this pattern allows that. :)
Hearts and rainbows are perfect for this Hand Picked Rainbow Baby quilt. This design stitches out so nicely. The quilting is done on my HandiQuilter Fusion with ProStitcher in bright white thread. I have had Gratitude (my machine) for over eight years, purchased secondhand, and she is a workhorse indeed. A terrific employee!
