Modern Prism Quilted Wall Hanging | Finished {or Not!} Friday Linky Party!

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

Welcome to Finished {or Not!} Friday where you can share what you're working on and see what others have been making!

My Finish is a Modern Prism wall hanging!

Modern Prism is a quilt kit I purchased quite a number of years ago from Keepsake Quilting.  It was well aged in my fabric closet and ready to be used.  The pattern and kit make a 60" x 63" quilt, but my client wanted a 30" wall hanging, so I reduced the HSTs to make the requested size.

I cut the squares for a second quilt at the same time I cut the first set, but they are bigger squares and will make a 47" square quilt.  I have it listed as a made-to-order item in my quilt shop, and I will finish it up when it is purchased.  I've too much to do now to just finish it, and it will require the push of a deadline for me to complete it.

Quilt Stats:
Pattern:  Modern Prism by Tara Faughnana; click here to get it.
Size:  30" x 31"
Fabric:  Michael Miller Cotton Couture
Backing:  Kona Charcoal
Quilting: Zing on Gratitude
Binding:  Kona Charcoal

A made-to-order quilt exactly like this, except measuring 47" square is for sale in my quilt shop right over here!

Petunia Patch Mini by Susan at Quilt Fabrication.  Isn't this the cutest ever mini quilt!?!  One of the many things on my to-do list is to write all of my patterns as mini quilts and perhaps table runners.  Which one would you like to see first?  Give me a shoutout with your choice.

A Batting Sale Not To Miss!

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

A quick stop to let you know of a batting sale going on right now!  Fat Quarter Shop has its own line of batting called Happy Cloud Batting, and it comes in 31 different options, including sizes not normally found, such as table runner and wall hanging.  There is a wide assortment of cotton, poly, bamboo, and blends thereof.

When I was in search of a true white batting awhile back, I found Happy Cloud Batting.  The 50/50 Cotton Blend is a pure white even though it doesn't look bright white in the picture.  Before ordering, I contacted Fat Quarter Shop to check on its color and was assured that it is pure white, and it is.

Most of the batting I use comes on a huge roll that I purchase wholesale because I sell the quilts I make, but for baby quilts, I do love the ease of pulling the batting out of a bag, all ready to go, rather than getting out my large roll, measuring, and cutting a straight line {indeed a challenge with batting}.  I've quilted a bunch of baby quilts lately {you'll see them soon!}, so my baby batting stash is needing replenished - and that will happen today!

Today's Fat Quarter Shop Sweet Sixteen Super Sale includes Happy Cloud Batting at 20% off, plus there are a whole bunch of other brands of fabric and notions that are 20% off.  

You'll find these items are 20% off today only with the coupon code below.  
  • Windham Fabric
  • Wilmington Prints
  • Camelot Cottons
  • Lecein Fabric
  • Collins Notions
  • Aurifil Thread
  • Fiskars
  • Cake Mixes
  • Triangles on a Roll
Someday I will tell you my story about discovering why I should use 50 wt thread for piecing - it all started with a huge cone of Aurifil thread that I received as an Island Batik Ambassador.  I love that thread, and it's included in this sale!

Go here to check out Happy Cloud Batting and to see what else is on sale - today only.  When you get to FQS, click on Flash Sale on the right, and it will take you right to the brands that are on sale.  At checkout, enter code SUPER20 to receive the discount.
