    Thousand pyramids

    This Thousand Pyramid top had been sitting around for months as strips and I finally put it together yesterday. There are 2 sizes of triangles, 6 and 3 inches.

    I love it! Whenever I try to put different fabrics together like that, it looks bad. Yours looks great!

    Beautiful!! Wow all those bias edges! This one is on my Bucket List for someday--maybe sooner than I planned.

    I've always loved the scrappy Thousand Pyramids! You've given me an incentive to at least put it on my Bucket List. Maybe I'll start cutting triangles -- I imagine it will take a long time to get enough for a quilt!

    Another gorgeous scrappy. The different size triangles adds such interest.

    Beautiful! It's very hard to make a scrappy quilt with a somehow harmonious result. Your's is perfect.

    I LOVE how you have different sizes in this pyramid quilt!
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Love it! This was one of the first quilts on my bucket list but I have yet to do it. You have inspired me to start cutting scraps into triangles.

    That's incredible work! All your points match perfectly. Love the use of two sizes of triangles. I've been cutting triangles for years each time I cut for something else. Have no idea how many I have, but it's a lot. Maybe one day I'll even put them together!

    Love, love, love this! I think the cutting would have taken an awfully long time. Your piecing is impeccable.

    Amazing and interesting scrap quilt! I have never done triangles like this - is it hard?
