    Need your help to locate pattern for these quilt pieces

    Lady quilter passed away and I have been asked if I can finish off the quilt for her. I don't
    have the pattern and if anyone could help identify the pattern for me, that would be very helpful.
    These are 60 degree triangles sewn together .
    Thanking you in advance.

    Could simply be 1,000 Pyramids since they are all random fabrics and pairings.
    The Earth without art is just "Eh".

    I don't know if this is the pattern she was doing in scraps or not, but it might give you an idea? http://frozenknickers.blogspot.ca/20...gle-quilt.html

    It appears that one triangle is a 90 degree triangle and one is a 60 degree triangle. But I can't think of the pattern that uses them.

    If you are unable to come up with one, perhaps you could trim each set to an HST size that you could put together in any of dozens of ways.

    Thankyou ladies for all the suggestions.

    All the angles were at 60 degrees, therefore working on the 8th row of 1.000 pyramids, the first suggestion I received today. There really are a lot of ways I could have gone, which I didn't realise. I learned
    something new today.

    Once again you ladies have come thru with your expertise, and I thank you for sharing.

    I too thought that one triangle was a tad larger than the other. I now think that it was the camera angle that made them look that way.

    these could be easily arranged to form hexagons... Of course, I've been dreaming in hexagons lately... they seem to be taking over the world!

    This could be the centers or stars for the periwinkle or snowball or Arkansas Star quilt.

    Not Thousand Pyramids. These blocks look like kites, the pyramid is equal on all three sides.

    EDIT: I take that back, after seeing the full qult is is A Thousand Pyramids. Funny how the piecies looked like kites.Maybe they are for a different quilt or a border.

    Yes they do look like kites, but they are actually equal on all three sides, it was full sun and extremely hot weather here in the desert, and I was taking the pic into the sun, and not being able to see what I was taking - the camera was probably not directly in line with the quilt -the lady whom these blocks belonged to passed away, and I was asked to put together what she had started, so it was not possible to ask her what pattern - she had cut these out for....

    They also look a bit like the ice cream cones that are the sashing settings on some dresden plate quilts.
