And by we, I mean my quilt and I of course.
I'm calling this bad boy Log Pyramids. Get it?Of course, the quilt is already at the show in Austin. In fact, I'm pretty sure it's already been judged. Yipes! Wish me luck!
I wanted to do a play on log cabin blocks using triangles as the "hearth" instead of a square. The center triangles are random sizes as are the strips around them.
The solids are all Kona cottons and the rest of the fabrics are various neutral polka dot prints.
Since I couldn't find a triangle template larger than 12", I had a plexiglass template custom made so that I could cut the blocks down to size. I couldn't come up with an easy way to trim them down to the same size while keeping them centered using regular rulers.
Because I designed and made this quilt expressly to enter into the show at QuiltCon, I was extra careful with all of my piecing and I must say, I'm very proud of the result. Look at those points!
In fact, I liked this quilt so much that I used a photo of it to make this snazzy new case for my snazzy new phone!
I've been thinking of doing a tutorial for this quilt or even, dare I say it, a quilt-along?!?! If I can drum up enough interest, it's on.
I arrive in Austin tomorrow evening so I will miss the first day, including the awards ceremony but after that I'm in for three fun-filled days of lectures, workshops, hanging out with my quilty friends and hopefully making some new ones. So if you're going and you spot me or my log pyramid phone case be sure to say hi!
