I am joining in with Amy@13 Spools in a Quilt-A-Long where we are making this quilt by Faith@FreshLemonQuilts. The pattern is called Prism and you can find it here. I just love the look of this quilt and the best part is that it is paper-pieced! I have made a few one block things that are paper-pieced, but not a whole quilt. I like it so much that the girls in my guild are making it with me!
If your interested, be sure to check out 13Spools where she has a series of info on paper-piecing with some tips and tricks. She also has a series of interviews with some big paper-piecers and a Flickr group where everyone can share there work. I love seeing all the ways a quilt is made from one pattern!
Here are my color choices. I went with four shades of grey and a Poseidon FQ bundle by Robert Kaufman. All the shades of blue and grey will hopefully give this quilt some sparkle:)
Here are my first couple of blocks, I am loving the way they are coming out…
If you have never tried paper-piecing I encourage you to give this a try! This is the easiest it is going to get…nice straight lines and an easy to follow pattern, just look at the template that you print and sew on…easy-peasy:)
Thanks Amy for sharing this with us and giving us the chance to join in!
Definitely a sassy pattern!
Keep it Sassy♥
Nice color choices! It’ll be so pretty.
That is going to look so good! Did you trim your paper before or after piecing? It looks like before?
After. You cut through fabric and paper to trim. Will have lots of rough edges from over sized pieces.
Can’t wait to get started!!
Oh wow! I love those colours!!! Can’t wait to see it grow!
I’m using that exact color palette in a quilt I’m making. I must say, you have excellent taste. LOL! It will be beautiful. I found you from the Plum and June link up.
Yes! Sassy is the feeling of that quilt pattern and gorgeous is you color scheme!!! I look forward to seeing your quilt finished!
This is truly going to be beautiful! You have great taste in fabric. I look forward to watching as you progress on it.
ohhhhhhh ahhhhhhhh, I like it! :)
I’m liking this pattern, and I think the colors that you chose are going to be marvelous. If I wasn’t already in two quiltalongs and hadn’t missed out on the prep work earlier this month, I’d be tempted to join. I’m going to follow your progress; I can always buy the pattern later and make the quilt. It’s not quite as much fun as doing it with others, but on the plus side, I can get crazy amounts of inspiration from seeing your quilt come together along with all the others in the quilt along.
I’ve been wanting to buy that Poseidan stack for ever!! I can’t wait to see this one come together, it’s going to be gorgeous!
That’s going to be gorgeous! Can’t wait to see your updates as you go along!
I just love your colour way! The blues are really going to make it gorgeous. Can’t wait to see it come together!
Gorgeous!! I can’t wait to see how it goes and such a good idea to use a Kona bundle!
How on earth do you keep up with it all girl?!!! Looking great :) x
Your prism is going to be beautiful! Love the aqua and gray. Isn’t paper piecing fun?
