Bokeh Quilt Finish

Back in the Fall, Yvonne from Quilting Jetgirl launched her annual quilt-along. I've participated in her quilt-alongs a couple of times now and when I saw this year's design, I just had to take part again. This year's pattern is called Bokeh. The quilt-along wrapped up just a few days ago and Yvonne is hosting a link-up party on her blog so that all the participants can share their finished quilt.

All of the fabrics I chose for my version came from my stash and the background is Kona White. 

The middle blocks came together very easily thanks to Yvonne's instructions. I started sewing the borders very late at night and was obviously very tired because I had to unpick them not once, but twice.

These borders were doomed somehow because I messed-up when preparing my backing fabric but only noticed once I had basted most of the quilt (I use boards to baste my quilts and didn't realize my backing fabric was too short until it was too late). So I quilted it and removed part of the borders before sewing on the binding. 

The backing is a text print from Connecting Threads and the binding is more Kona White with one strip left from the aqua fabric.

The details:
  • Pattern: Bokeh by Quilting Jetgirl
  • Size: Lap Size (approx. 57" x 60")
  • Fabrics: Kona White and various fabrics from my stash 
  • Thread: Pieced and quilted with Aurifil #2600 (dove)

I love my new quilt and I'll happily be sharing it with the other participants of the quilt-alongs over at Yvonne's blog!


  1. Love the backing fabric. Beautiful quilt swirl!

  2. Well, the quilt looks just as good with the slightly modified borders and makes it more interesting! Thanks for sewing along!! :)

  3. A wonderful quilt! No one will know about the borders, except you. I've done some major oops and no one seems to pay attention.
