Mrs.Hexie ... Patchwork Prism Quilt Finished!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!



Mrs.Hexie ... my interpretation of the Patchwork Prisms Quilt pattern by Anna Marie Horner for Janome.  Made completely from my stash {yeah!} and almost entirely with my current ♥ Annie's Farm Stand by Holly Holderman for Lakehouse Fabrics ... a few other fabrics were used to fill in here and there.  I ♥ the mix of florals, dots, stripes, plaids, and checks.  You'd think 40 AFS fabrics would have been enough, but they weren't!


This is the largest quilt in which I have used fusible batting, and it worked fabulously without shifting even with the extensive handling of the quilt as I quilted.  ♥ fusible batting!  I did straight-line quilting along the inner and outer edges of the triangles and some special quilting to highlight the small hexagons.  ♥ that walking foot on my old Bernina 830!  The fabrics were not prewashed, and I ♥ the way the quilt crinkled up when it was washed!


The all-time bestest use of a clothesline is to photograph quilts!
