A special release in 2015 of (48) pre-cut and pre-sorted Bali Pops selected by Quiltworx.com, was the inspiration behind the Prismatic Star design. The strip piecing process for the Prismatic Star was designed for foundation paper piecing. Strips are sewn onto foundation paper to complete what we call a Strip Set. After the strip sets are completed they are cut apart, rearranged and resewn into a diamond star point. The process originated by combining two previous published techniques used in several of the Lone Star inspired and Bali Fever quilt designs by Quiltworx.com. The foundation papers, layouts, and strip piecing process were designed by Brad and Judy Niemeyer for foundation paper piecing.
