Prism Path Baby Quilt
Finished Size: 36 x 46 inches
Prism Path is a fun baby quilt I first designed in 2014. I had a stack of bright batik fat quarters in rainbow colors and this seemed the perfect way to use up those fabrics and make a bright baby quilt.
But once I pieced the top, I hit the usual brick wall - how do I quilt it? There seemed so many ways I could tackle this pretty quilt top and I couldn't make up my mind how to finish it.
It took another two years before I pulled out that quilt top while writing Explore Walking Foot Quilting. Suddenly I could see how two simple walking foot quilting designs could transform this simple quilt from an unusable top to a finished, functional baby quilt.
Ultimately this was the perfect baby quilt to include in the book Explore Walking Foot Quilting with Leah Day. If you’re intimidated by the larger quilts in the book, this small baby quilt is a great places to get started and you’ll learn the basics of Bargello style quilting as well.
During the Walking Foot Quilt Along, I shared six videos to guide you through piecing and quilting the Prism Path baby quilt. Watch the videos below and follow along anytime!
