Rainbow Star Baby Quilt | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My Finish is a Rainbow Star baby quilt.  I used this quilt to practice wavy line quilting on Gratitude in preparation for quilting my king size Postcard From Sweden quilt.


The digital edge-to-edge design is Modern Hourglass, which I purchased because it eliminates the stopping and starting at every pass across the quilt.  It will complete as many passes as the throat space allows, without stopping, and is a 90" panto, but this is simple to crop or expand to the quilt width.  I had to be right there to stop it otherwise it would keep going and bump into the belly bar, but this was still much better than one pass at a time.  This quilting shows the panto without any changes to its size.


The backing is a fun rainbow paintbox print.


Rainbow Star is a two-for-one quilt pattern.  You could make two identical quilts or use the optional second layout given in the pattern.  This pattern is for sale in my pattern shop and includes the Kona colors used in the cover quilt, which may vary from this quilt.

This quilt is for sale in my quilt shop!

Wow! I really love your Rainbow baby quilt! Fabulous job! I love quilts that are quick finishes, and that looks to be a great one to add to my list!

The wavy lines looks good on the baby quilt. Great idea to practice on a quilt instead of just a piece of fabric.
