Yesterday I finished my Patchwork Prism Quilt. I've been waiting impatiently for the rain to stop so I could photograph it. Technically the rain never did stop, but Dan braved the light drizzle (and the chair that sunk slightly into the boggy grass!) to get some action photos.
I used Anna Maria Horner's Patchwork Prism pattern, currently available here with no modifications to the pattern. I made plastic templates which I drew around to cut my pieces. I had been waiting for the pattern to be published for several weeks before it went live. I loved Anna's original quilt so much that I just had to make one for myself. When the pattern was released and the quilt-along announced I jumped in straight away. I used a lot favourite fabrics for my Prism, many treasured AMH scraps as well as some Tula Pink and Denyse Schmidt. I used quite a few voile pieces along with the regular cotton prints, which I think makes this quilt extra special. This quilt will be with me forever and I'm so glad I could include so many beloved prints.
My quilt is backed mostly with an Ikea cotton sheet, with a few pieced strips to match the colourful front. I had my quilt longarm quilted by the very talented Chris . I love the look of the quilting on the white background, though the backing did get a tiny bit dirty during it's photo shoot in the muddy yard. I still need to wash my Prism so hopefully it will come out fine. I may rethink using a white backing in future though.
Lovely swirly floral quilting!
