The Prism Quilt is Finished!

I was working on this quilt at a retreat in July. It is paper pieced and I did not have enough paper pattern pieces to complete  it at the retreat. 

The pattern is Prism. I bought the pattern last year - I think in Montana.

The quilt is a little over 62" square. I used an even number of columns while the pattern used an odd number. The quilt has already been washed so it is "puckery". I love puckered quilts.

I used Dream Cotton for the batting and Aurifil thread. All of the fabric came from my stash.

I quilted the white parts with a walking foot. The rest is free motion quilted - the navy parts have large circles and the colored 4-part diamonds have pebbles.

I used orange thread in the bobbin for the entire quilt. Depending on the area, the top is quilted in white, navy, or orange.

The back is orange with a lighter orange dot.

I really like this quilt. I don't need a quilt but I'm not sure I want this one to leave. So for now, this one stays here but may still be donated. I'll see...


  1. Such a beauty! And you did a great job coordinating the quilting. It is always good to have an extra one on hand.

  2. Gorgeous! Love this pattern and the bright colors!

  3. I can see why this quilt needs to live with you for at least a little while. It's beautiful. You should enjoy it for a bit!
