Prism Burst - Finished!

Ok, the last days I have been sewing pedal-to-the-medal
and I just finished the binding on my "Prism Burst",
following the Patchwork Prism quilt along.
And I just love it!
All of it!
The colors & fabrics,
my quilting
and the overall quilt!

Wow, what a great pattern -
finally I found the courage to use
a whole lot of my favorite fabrics.
They were just waiting for this perfect pattern -
thank you Anna Maria Horner!
And what a great idea of quilt along
or I would have never started it:

So, please come and meet 
my Prism Burst in its full glory:

Backing view with "Paper Fan"
and binding "Roman Glass" fabric:

I only have earlier indoor pictures 
where you can see the quilting lines:

And a sketch that shows it much better - 
and ultimately named my quilt 
Prism Burst:

Some 'process' pictures taken along the way:
marking with skinny Painter's Tape

And my wrestle with a 6 inch throat machine:
Not for the faint of heart,
But I persevered and 
I love everything about this quilt - 
especially that is has not become a UFO,
but a finished quilt!
All mine!
