prismatic quilt


Not long after sharing a sneak peek of this quilt, I finished it! Consisting of oversized half-square triangles, the simple quilt pattern is called Prismatic, and can be found in Kathreen Ricketson's Little Bits Quilting Bee, one of my favorite quilt books.


To make it, I paired almost all of the light blue prints in my stash (ranging from vintage to new) with solid white---I love how well the various prints work with one another, despite differences in scale and value.


For the back, I pieced together a number of larger scraps, including a few treasured prints I'd been hoarding.


I quilted it on my own machine (!) using an all-over stipple. This is by far the largest quilt I've ever quilted (it's approximately 81" x 90"), and while the stitching is far from perfect and took forever to complete, I love the final, crinkly results.


I bound it with a beloved Kei Honeycomb Dot I snatched up in a sale a few years ago, and added a new label.


P.S. The DC Walk to End Alzheimer's is this Saturday, and we'd love your support! Details about the walk can be found here.
