Pyramid - the final show

My Pyramid quilt is all quilted and bound!


I just love the scrappiness and how the solids frame all the different prints.




The back turned out beautiful. I struggled a bit to pick out a binding. I tried yellow and gray, but ended up with this Kei dot in blue. It matches perfectly.


It's quilted with straight lines about 1/2" from each seam. The quilting went surprisingly quick.




Saturday I picked up this basket at the Container Store. It's beautiful and quite heavy - great for housing some quilts!


In other sewing this week - I made up a couple of Jeni's Drawstring bags for the girls who are on their way as I type!

  1. Very pretty finish, Cindy. Your little drawstring bags are also cute as a bee. Looks like you've been lucky to get in a lot of sewing lately. We missed you at the BTOG mtg. Hope you have not deserted us.

  3. I love that basket. It's a good thing I didn't go with you to Containers. I would have ended up with a bunch of things!! Enjoy your girls!
