Newest Creation

I just came back from a quilt retreat and this quilt is what I made during that wonderful weekend.

The quilt was inspired by a picture in the Keepsake Quilting catalog for a quilt named "Prism Pyramids" and the quilt in the catalog was made from pre-cut 2 1/2" strips of hand dyed fabric. I had just gone through my hand dyed fabric before I saw this quilt and had cut 2 1/2" strips from a lot of the yardage I have. I have been playing with 2 1/2" strips in an attempt to use up some of my stash. So when I saw this quilt, I was inspired to create my own. The black sashing was added after I had sewn together the sets of 60 degree triangles into three columns. I have almost enough scraps left over to make a scrappy border around the whole quilt. After I get it quilted, I will bind it in black fabric to finish off the frame and then it will hang in our bedroom. When you enter our house, you will be able to see most of the quilt as you look down the hallway.
