Patchwork Prism Quilt-a-Long

Ready for another great QAL?  This fun QAL will be hosted by Bianca over at Sweet Diesel Designs.

The pattern...

Anna Maria Horner designed this pattern for Janome, and they have made it available free of charge. You can find the download for the pattern here.  I admit I love this pattern.  It's such a simple, colorful design.  I might have to downsize the templates a bit and use up some of my color wheel charms for this quilt.

It’s going to go a little something like this...

The posts...{Bianca will share how she approached this pattern...}
  •     April 24: choosing your fabric {and if you need fabric, Fat Quarter Shop is offering a generous 20% discount, code announced soon}
