Today I'm excited to share the Kindred quilt pattern!  Kindred is the newest fat quarter friendly quilt pattern in the Busy Hands Quilts pattern line.

Kindred is an easy quilt pattern with secondary designs that catch the eye across the quilt top.  I didn't know this would happen until I sewed the quilt top; it didn't show up on the computer screen.

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

Kindred Quilt Pattern

The Kindred quilt pattern is a fat quarter stash-busting quilt pattern.  This color combination of blues, aquas, greens, and yellows was a fat quarter bundle in my stash that turned out even prettier than I was expecting in the Kindred design.

Kindred comes in all of the sizes and can use a wide variety of fabrics, including prints and tonals.

The Binding can be cut from the fat quarters for all sizes except the Baby size.  The Binding on this quilt is from the fat quarters and thus, scrappy.

Fabric Selection

This quilt is made with a 1/2-yard bundle of fabric I had in my stash.  It is a Boundless bundle and is a mix from a lot of their collections, and I couldn't find a specific fabric collection name to share with you.  

Because the pattern calls for 15 fat quarters for the Throw size and I had 1/2-yard cuts, a quilt kit was curated with the remaining fabrics and sold in my shop.

These exact fabrics are available from an Etsy seller right here.  There is enough fabric in the bundle to make two Throws or one Twin XL, with the addition of Accent fabrics.  The Binding fabric can be cut from the fat quarters as an option. 

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

All of the Quilt Sizes

Kindred includes all of the quilt sizes from Baby all the way up to King.

Baby size  48" x 48"  8 FQs

Throw size  60" x 72"  15 FQs

Twin XL (perfect for dorm rooms)  72" x 96"  24 FQs

Queen  96" x 108"  36 FQs

King 108" x 108"  41 FQs

Kindred Longarm Quilting

The digital quilting design on this quilt is Ribbon Curls in white thread, quilted on my HandiQuilter Fusion with ProStitcher.

Extra Wide Backing

Extra wide backing saves both time and money.  This quilt is backed with a navy print on white.  I like that there is enough white in it to hide the white thread from the quilting.  My preference is that the color of the quilting thread hides as much as possible on the back, but this may not even matter to you.  

This wide back fabric is available in the Busy Hands Quilts Wide Back shop.

That pretty quilt on the quilt rack is a Gridwork quilt.  You can read about the quilt right here.  

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