Bokeh QAL - Mini Quilt Finish
2021 Finished Quilts

Bokeh Quilt Along {Mini Finish}

I sewed along with the Bokeh Quilt Along and made a fun, rainbow inspired mini quilt. Today, I’m excited to get to share how it finished!

Originally inspired by Create Navy Colour Me Happy Stripes by Kristy from Quiet Play, I knew that the featured curve star in the center and the binding would use that print. Unable to make up my mind on whether to make the surrounding blocks in a warm or cool colorway, I opted for half of each: two blocks in red/orange/yellow and two blocks in green/blue/purple.

I quilted the mini with a medium to small stipple across the entire mini quilt using 50wt Aurifil in 2021 (white).

I am really pleased with the fun pieced backing, that used up the scrap fabric made from piecing the front curve star. The striped, rainbow binding pulls it all together. Overall I couldn’t be more tickled with how this mini quilt finished.

I will be linking up with the Bokeh Quilt Along Final Linkup; although I won’t be eligible for any of the prizes, it will be fun to see it with all the other finishes!

Celebrating my finish by also linking up with Finished or Not Friday, Beauties Pageant 128, and TGIFF.

    These are gorgeous versions of that terrific pattern. I love the rainbow center and bindings.


    I love this bright version of Bokeh Star. Is that pronounced “boquet? I’ve been dithering about the quilting on mine and wondering what i can do. It’s good to see this with stippling. This little wall hanging will brighten any room or perhaps a table top. It seems to go with Hawaii and sunshine.

    Lovely! I especially like how your striped fabric holds everything together and how you repeated it on the back and in the binding.

  8. Yeah, this is pretty much mini-quilt perfection! Love how that striped print plays a part in every aspect of this project. Just beautiful!

    Such a happy quilt! I really like the stripe fabric in the middle and the pieced back just finishes this off perfectly!

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
