Quasar II [a finish]

With this finish I've already had more success in the third quarter finish along than I did in the previous quarter, and I am by no means finished! This finish was a beautifully quick and straightforward baby quilt.

Back in May, when Mum came to visit, I made my first Quasar Quilt for her to gift. Whilst I was at it, I cut all the fabric I needed to make a second. If you look back at the photos of the original Quasar quilt, you'll see that the only real difference is the colour placement.

Once I'd trimmed all those half-square-triangles, this quilt went together in just an hour or so. The quilting was also pretty quick: I just used my walking foot to echo the seam lines, making the light blue and orange pop against the dark blue background.

I picked a fabric from Cinderberry Stitches for the back - perfect for little boys!

This is such a quick quilt to make and I love the finish. I don't think this will be my final Quasar quilt: maybe a girly one next?

This is a Finish Along finish. My original list is here.

Well done Jennie! This is a beautifully dramatic quilt and yet surprisingly straightforward to make; just what a busy mother needs! I love the colour arrangement.
