Finished!!! Patchwork Prism QAL

Oh, I'm in love!   Yesterday I did a wee bit of free motion quilting in the middle of my quilt, it was a butterfly and once I'd done that I stopped as I didn't want any more, it was just perfect.    The binding was put on last night and now she's finished and she's beautiful.


Meet Beauty-A Patchwork Prism Quilt

All finished on display

On the couch, where she'll get used most often

Butterfly FMQ in the middle; love this!

The back, in flannel
Some quick details:

Front is the Prism Quilt pattern by Anna Marie Horner for Janome; I'm participating in the Prism QAL, see the button on my sidebar for details.
I used mostly stash fabrics; some from the pack of fat quarters I won from V&Co, had to buy a few browns and greens though due to a major lack in my stash.
The batting was an old cream wool blanket with some stains that washing didn't move.  It was a touch on the prickly side so didn't get used as a blanket often, this way it'll be used a lot.
Backing is Essentials Flannel by Wilmington; I got it for a very good price from Fabric Shack and it worked well for backing and binding.   Makes it nice and snuggly for winter; which is good considering winter has definitely hit here.

I took it into Stitch to show off this morning and it was very well received, some of the fabric I used came from there.   I think I might put it in the Summer Sewing Competition (see my sidebar for that button too); it looks summery to me and might help me think it's summer even though it's freezing cold!

Thank you, I love the butterfly too. I've put off doing more quilting on it because I don't want my butterfly disappearing. Being a blanket in the middle it doesn't really need it I don't think anyway.

Thanks for that, I love the butterfly too; I didn't draw it before hand so was quite pleased when it turned out so well.

Doesn't it feel good to have made this! I know when I finished mine it was so rewarding. It looks wonderful :)

It felt wonderful and has come in handy today, my husband is feeling a bit unwell so has been wrapped in it all day.
