Made this for my friend Joanne's daughter, Lexie Morris, who loves blue.
|(Shown on our queen bed)|
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!

You always pick such great colors with your quilts, this one is perfect in the blues and white. I like the layout and the name, looks great! What a nice gift.ReplyDelete

Thank you - I loved putting it all together.Delete
I absolutely LOVE the quilt you made for Lexie. I'm sure she's going to love it, too!!!ReplyDelete
It was very well received I'm told!Delete
A lovely quilt! And the bicycle flannel backing is perfect with it, so cuddily!ReplyDelete
I was saving those bicycles for something for myself but they just suited this project more (and I am sure Lexie probably rides a bike a LOT more than I do these days LOL!)Delete
What a gorgeous project! Love the colors and the backing. Makes me want to rethink my HSTs...ReplyDelete
I really enjoyed putting this together (and using stash fabrics to expand it). Thanks for visiting!Delete
It is a great quilt! The backing is perfect!ReplyDelete
Aren't those bicycles just the coolest?!Delete
I love how you expanded the centre section to make it the size you wanted. And the backing fabric is wonderful! On behalf of the FAL global hosts, thank you for participating and linking up.ReplyDelete
