Progress has been made and all pieces of the Patchwork Prism Quilt have been laid out on my design wall. Mapping out the triangles and adjusting the color gradation was a fun exercise. I have to say, this part took a lot longer than I thought it would. Thoroughly enjoyable though, playing with all that beautiful color and print made me very happy. I kept cutting into fabrics that I have long stared at and dared not cut into, and I am so glad I have. I am really understanding that the best way to enjoy my fabric, is to play and experiment and to sew them up into something. All of these prints look so beautiful together, all + 35 of them! I started collecting Anna Maria Horner’s fabric around the time that her Good Folks collection came out. I am drawn to her color palette with every print she designs.
I love the middle of this quilt and how it starts with the darkest prints I could find, and then it changes into ruby reds and plum, changing again to sparkling pinks and sorbet colors,melting into sunny orangey yellows which sit next to slightly more greenish yellows, and finally changing once more into soft greens and blues with go to dark at the edges, disappearing into an inky midnight blue.

My design consultant was nearby for input and layout assistance.
