Finish it Up Friday - #24 in 2012

Whew.  This quilt felt like it took forever -- although if I think about it, I realize I just started it Sunday!

Getting a photo of this quilt was almost as hard as finishing it by my deadline. It's Spring in Colorado, so that means wind.  My quilt-holders are almost too short!  Maybe I need to invest in a quilt display frame.

"Pyramid Triangles," by Pam and Nicky Lintott takes just one Jelly Roll and finishes at 78 by 93 inches, a good Full size quilt.  Pam and Nicky said this quilt was inspired by one of their favorite antique quilts.  Wouldn't it look great in 30s reproduction fabrics?  I used one of my cherished jelly rolls, "Strawberry Fields," by Figtree Quilts for Moda.  I got mine at my bestest etsy shop, freshsqueezedfabrics.  Several people voted for red as the sashing, but I was under a deadline, so I used the yellow that I had in my collection.

I used a few scraps from "Celebrate Spring" by Sandy Gervais, because I also used "Strawberry Fields" for this quilt in February:


"Pyramid Triangles" doesn't have an owner yet, but you know -- the right person always comes along!  Too bad the next 12-year-old great niece wants pink and brown, because I think either of these would be great "girly" quilts!

Got my first pedicure of the season yesterday.  DH likes the "Hello Kitty" slippers:


Tomorrow is Fat Quarter Fun at Ruth's Stitchery.  And then it's time to start packing for my road trip to Ohio for the International Quilt Festival Cincinnati!

  6. Have fun in Ohio! I went to college in Delaware, OH and I miss the area so much but especially in the spring time. Maybe you will get lucky and see some blooming magnolia trees. :)
