Made this for my friend Joanne's daughter, Lexie Morris, who loves blue.

I used a kit-set from Spotlight for the centre panel, which is made from half-square triangles, and then added the border panels to make it into a single-bed quilt.
I quilted stars into the star-print, used zigzag lines on the diamonds and wavy lines on the dark blue panels.
I had been saving this bicycle flannel and it was perfect for the backing.
The name, Capers and Frisks, is because I was listening to a podcast of one of my favourite books, Pride and Prejudice, while I was sewing and one of the lines that really took my fancy was something along the lines of "the children showed their happiness with a variety of capers and frisks" which I though fit really well for a child's quilt with the variety of blue fabrics.
|Nice and cosy!|

This is one of my goals for the third quarter of the 2018 Finish Along!
