Alison Glass Mini Quilt Planning

Shortly after finishing the Schnitzel and Boo Mini quilt swap, a flood of other tempting swaps were announced on Instagram. Showing an unprecedented amount of willpower, I only signed up for one: an Alison Glass Mini Quilt Swap. I love the bright saturated colors in Alison’s fabrics, and am really excited about this mini. I’ve decided to make the Prismatic Medallions quilt, designed by Susan Kephart for Robert Kaufman.

The sample quilt is made with solids, but I think that Alison Glass‘s fabric lines will work wonderfully, too. Check out this gorgeous rainbow!

This pull is almost entirely comprised of Alison’s newest Sun Prints, both Grove and Mercury, plus some Bike Path from her older Sun Prints, with some Cotton & Steel basics and Sketch prints thrown in. I have a few little holes to fill, and am aiming to visit my local quilt shop Fiddlehead Artisan Supply sometime this week to remedy that so that I can get started piecing the top.

Prismatic Medallions is a free pattern (score!) and the cutting directions result in enough triangles to make two quilts (double score!). I guess I’ll just have to make a version for myself, too. Shucks.

I’m linking up with Freshly Pieced’s Work in Progress Wednesday.

  1. Alison’s booth was one of the two booth’s at that I had been “crushing” on since QM, and after drooling over her Sun prints for a while, I finally ended up ordering them as well as several of her Handcrafted prints. I’ve started a few projects with them, and can’t wait to really dig in. These will make a really great medallion quilt!


  2. Ooooh this is going to be so pretty. I signed up for that swap too but haven’t gotten started yet. I’ll be happy if I’m your partner thought! 🙂


  3. This looks like it will be so fun! The Alison Glass really does lend itself perfectly to the rainbow project. And what better incentive to work on it than getting one for yourself?

    How does everyone find all these IG swaps??
