My weekend has been quite productive here. I pieced the back of my Patchwork Prism quilt. Top and back are now securely packaged and will be posted off to England for quilting very shortly. The back is just an off-white Ikea sheet with a couple of pieced scrap strips for interest. I entirely neglected to photograph it as it was late and I just wanted it to be packed and ready to go. It will be a lot prettier when it returns though.

I cut out the pieces for the matching pillow sham and have started piecing it already.I plan on hand quilting this smaller prism. I made my pillowcase one triangle narrower to better fit Irish pillows and I left out green entirely in favour of a turquoise ring.

Cutting all these triangles left me with some oddly shaped scrap, which I've been cutting into short strips and sorting into colour groups. I'm planning on making the Volume quilt from Emily Cier' s Scrap Republic. I added my small stash of scrap string to the pile too, chopping them into short lengths ready for piecing. The Volume quilt would fit nicely on the chimney breast of my new studio so I'm really excited to get started on it.

Thank you to everyone who took advantage of the sale at my etsy store . The coupon code SUMMER40 is still good for a 40% discount throughout May :) I'm off to do a post office run now.
