TGIFF - Rainbow Star Quilt

I have finally finished a baby quilt, for a gorgeous little miss born in January.

This project took so long as I was a complete stresshead about it all and unpicked umpteen times.  Duh!  Infact, it started off HUGE but then got trimmed down to result in...

QUILT - Rainbow Star (top)

... 40" x 40" of rainbow star loveliness.  Each colour is from last year's new Kona colour range - teamed with Kona White.

Don't worry, though, I've saved the trimmed sides for another project.  Stay tuned!

QUILT - Rainbow Star (quilting)

Quilting is quite minimalistic with straight lines spaced 1" apart on the white and no actual quilting anywhere on the star (though I did stitch in the ditch between the colours and around the star itself).

QUILT - Rainbow Star (back & binding)

Fun spots on the back, teamed with a gorgeous rainbow / spotty fabric for the binding.  I love this little touch and was super excited to discover it hidden in my stash.  Thankfully, too, I had just enough.  Meant to be, me thinks!


Linking up with TGIFF, this week hosted by the lovely Laura.


  1. Very nice. I do love my rainbows!

  2. Oh it looks beautiful! Perfect quilting!

  3. I love it! :)Perfect backing and binding!

  4. It is just lovely Erin, and not too babyish either. I am sure it will be well loved for a long time.

  5. Beautiful! Love the rainbow and the quilting! Cute binding too :)

  6. Oh how cute! The backing and binding really are perfect for this quilt. Great finish!

  7. Looks great! Rainbows are always fun on baby stuff and that quilting will make it nice and cuddly. Great finish, Erin!

  8. I love this. Such a fun quilt.

  9. GORGEOUS! Um, I'd like to point out that your Rainbow didn't take nearly as long as mine (a year I think?) so pssht I don't want to hear it. That baby is going to l-o-v-e it! Besides, she couldn't see color when she was born and now she's good to go! xo

  10. Adorable baby quilt! I love the rainbow colors.

  11. This is so awesome! In the thumbnail I did t realize the star took up the whole quilt, how cool!
