Design Wall Monday

Only two more days until the first day of Summer -- must get my Pyramid Block-a-Day completed!  I'm using Sara Nephew's "Super 60" rotary cutting tool to make my 60 degree triangles:


My pattern is "Streaks of Lightning" from the April 1999 (!) issue of American Patchwork & Quilting. The late 90s was when 30s reproduction fabrics first became readily available, and I bought a fat quarter of every print that was issued.  Until there got to be too many even for me to buy!

Here is the magazine photo of the finished quilt:

And here is what I have completed so far (the rows are not sewn together):

But the temperature is supposed to top 90 degrees Fahrenheit today, so I will be spending most of the day in my cool basement sewing room!

What's on your design wall today?
