    Very NICE!!! I love it. I bought some Blacks and reds about a year ago thinking to do something like that, but have done nothing with it yet. I really like bold and graphic quilts like yours but they are so outside the norm for me, I just freeze up thinking about it. I guess its that thing about getting out of your comfort zone!

    You have been really busy! That is a beautiful quilt. I love the black/white/red combination. Striking! I have no clue how I would quilt it (well, yes I do-I would send it to my long arm quilter and let her decide-but I know that does not help you any. Sorry!)

    Love the quilt and love the colors. I'm a Texas Tech Red Raider and red and black are our school colors. Very nice. Doesn't it make you a little crazy when things get "lost" by people with no emotional investment in them. I'd be so mad that a quilt got lost. Did the quilter reimburse you for the quilt? I just can't imagine...my mind is boggled!

    I've made a couple of these and had the same quandary. I saw one somewhere that I'd like to try, though. They quilted a zig-zag with the lines started at the wide portion of each triangle. Don't know if that explains it properly. Just draw a line from the middle of the wide section of a triangle to the wide section of the adjacent triangle. Looked great when I saw it.

    quilt4u -- I know this is not very imaginative; but what about quilting inside each pyamid 1/4 inch? Would help to emphasize the shape of the pyramid while at the same time keeping the design simple. I think it would make it look like an antique quilt. Just a thought.

    I just love the colors, it is beautiful. I think I would stich in the ditch, the triangls are small enought, it would really make them jump out. :mrgreen:
