Introducing Prism Parkway! April 15 2014, 0 Comments


Say hello to the newest Sassafras Lane pattern, Prism Parkway! This pattern was originally published in Quiltmaker Magazine awhile back and will now be available though us! This is a versatile, modern, triangular paper-piecing quilt pattern. The Prism Parkway pattern includes three quilt sizes (Venti [72" x 97"], Grande [54" x 75"] and Tall [36" x 54"]), two design options (one with wavy ends, and one without) and in-depth paper-piecing instructions. 


To make the cover quilt super-duper scrappy, my mom and I split up the foundation papers and each made half of the blocks from our orange stashes. It was so much fun when we put them together. Surprisingly, there were only a handful of repeated fabrics. We each have extensive collections, but I was envious of a few of her fabrics. Good thing she shares pretty well =] 


My mom, the amazing quilter behind Wolf Creek Quilting, quilted a spiral in each of the pinwheels with a light orange thread. Those spirals are perfect for highlighting the points where the triangles come together, plus it adds some amazing texture to the quilt!


For some reason when I was shooting this quilt, I kept thinking about bridges. Luckily for me, there are quite a few in my neck of the woods. Most of the bridges were in direct sunlight, which created some hard shadows and strange back-lighting. I found one bridge that was surrounded by trees. 


The bridge was a little dirty and covered with moss, but a great photo location. I took some flat shots of the quilt on the bridge (above) and then I scrunched the quilt up for a few. I love styling quilts in a thrown and "natural" way.


For the Prism Parkway pattern cover, I chose a scrunched photo on the bridge. I love how it turned out and I hope you do too!
