“Prism” Published

I am so excited! My wall quilt, “Prism,” is published in the March/April 2014 issue of McCall’s Quilting! If you are a McCall’s subscriber, you’ve probably already received your copy. My quilt is on page 68.


As always, the staff photographer wonderfully staged my quilt; it’s displayed in a living  room setting. This colorful, modern quilt was quick and easy to piece.


The challenge for me was planning 9 different quilting designs for the “negative space.” Yes, each vertical row has a different freehand quilting design. I gained inspiration from machine quilting books by Angela Walters and Bethany Pease Sheets. Perhaps you can better see the quilting designs in the photo below.


How could you adapt the color scheme of this quilt design? What color could be used as the background instead of white? What could you use instead of the rainbow colored rectangles? Leave your ideas in a comment below.
