Introducing Mini Prism Parkway
Prism Parkway combines all my favorite things: quilting, geometry and architecture. When we were making a list of patterns to make into mini quilts first, I immediately thought, "How cute would a Mini Prism Parkway quilt be?" I wanted to make a mini version of the scrappy orange original, so we dug through the orange scrap bin and made this little guy!
Kristy quilted this Mini Prism Parkway just like the original! She quilted the swirls in the hexagons created by the triangles and filled in the edges with a bubble fill. Orange scraps are never something we are lacking and to make this quilt, we used a combination of light, medium and dark prints.
To add a little bit of kick to this mini, Kristy bound the quilt in grey and white stripe and a pop of solid turquoise! I love adding a little bit of contrasting "wow" to projects, it adds some character =]
Quick Quilt Stats:
Here is a photo for scale, so you can see how small the mini is when being compared to the original Prism Parkway. It is even easier to compare the size when the colors are similar! We opted to ax the wavy edges for the mini, because let's be honest, who would want to bind those little waves?
This pattern was designed with the architecture of the roaring twenties in mind, so when we received a bundle of Charleston by Revive from Timeless Treasures, I immediately dug into it for this Mini Prism Parkway! I love the elegant floral prints mixed in with pops of gold and geometric shapes. Placing the navy, red and gold prints on a warm white background allows the triangles to pop!
