crystal prism

Quilt Designed & Made by Art Gallery Studios Finished Quilt Size 80" x 88" Number of Blocks & Finished Size 36 Block Y 8" x 8" 49 Block Z 8" x 8" Plan Basic blocks create a complex jewel of a quilt, with matching sets of blocks interacting with one another in a dazzling display.

A vertical design wall will be especially helpful for organizing band segments and patches before construction. Use an accurate ¼" seam allowance throughout to ensure all elements of the quilt fit together well. Note that the border 2 sides are narrower than the top and bottom. Shop Fabric yardage assumes…
